Dear Editor,

I saw this on Twitter and felt it was worth sharing.

“Just to set the record straight,

this is what the average American wants:

We don't want money for nothing;

We want jobs that pay enough for our basic needs.

We don't want free healthcare;

We want our taxes to pay for it, not for more wars.

We don't want a free place to live;

We want affordable housing that costs no more than 30 percent of our income.

We don't want corporations to be unprofitable;

We want them out of the political, electoral,

regulatory and policy-making processes.

We don't want the wealthy to pay for everything;

We just want them to pay their fair share.

We don't expect elections to deliver the results we want;

We just want to be able to vote and we want our votes to count.”

I can't imagine that any reasonable person would disagree.
