Just Leave Us Alone

Let's be honest with ourselves for a moment or two.

Let’s put aside our fears. Lock away our nightmares. Especially the one staring our political leaders in the leading roles as so many deranged "Leatherfaces" from the 1970's movie, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

It’s the one in which, chainsaws in hand, they are busily hacking away at our meager Social Security and Medicare programs; lopping off our environmental and consumer protections; and disenfranchising all but “proven” true Republicans of certain ethnic heritages.

Let’s move those thoughts back into Pandora’s Box.

Now, let’s make a public declaration:
We the 99.9% declare that the .01% can, forever and a day, keep all the gold they have, all the wealth they have accumulated, if they agree to leave the rest of us alone and swear that we are all guaranteed a life-affirming quality of life. You know, like the U.S. Constitution says we have.

Now, that wasn’t hard was it.

Here's my Official, Just Leave Us Alone Song: Otis Redding - (Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay (Official Video) - 1967
