Dear Indivisible Member –
I am a New Yorker, a Vietnam era veteran, and an award winning songwriter (winner of the Olympic Theme category of the prestigious UK Songwriting Contest).
I am repeatedly outraged to the point of numbness by our current president’s behavior; his racism, his misogyny, his attacks on the press and other institutions of democracy, his attacks on refugees and other immigrants, his attacks on the LGBT community, his obvious appreciation of authoritarian governments, his appeals to hatred of the other, his assault on truth, his refusal to take seriously and act on the findings of our intelligence agencies about Russia’s interference in our elections, etc. I could go on and on.
I have written a song called “Take Away His Keys” that I believe can be a rallying cry for those who believe that our president is not simply someone with a conservative Republican viewpoint, but is a serious danger to democratic institutions and democracy itself.
I am sharing with you a YouTube link to the song with the thought that you might find it useful. Please share it with any person or organization that you feel could utilize it.
Thank you for fighting back.
