- That government has no place in our bedrooms or private medical decisions;
- That our physical world is on loan to us from our children and we are not entitled to trash it before we pass it back;
- That we’re all in this together and it’s our job to help each other get through it.

Thanks to all the others whose assistance has made the production and posting of these parodies possible. I hope that you will find the humor lifts your spirits, and supports your commitment in these last critical days before the election.
Democrats in office now
Dems in majority-and how!
People singing this song
Nothing but Democrats, from now on
I never saw the sun shining so bright
Never saw things, going so right
Pelosi with a gavel, Hoyer in line
You’ve got our votes
Now its our time for
Fair wage, here in our hands
Bank accounts rising, let’s make plans
