47% Mighty Sad Song

A response video to Mr. Romney remarks. Jim Hinde was a great songwriter. PTSD got him years after his service in Viet Nam. He went on to be an activist and folksinger. His daughter Katie, put this video together. It is so fitting for these times.

1. Because they voted down the Vet Bill.

K and R
"Mitt Romney disdains the 47% as leeches, holding back our country. Who are these 47%? Small family farmers, the homeless, elderly retirees on fixed incomes, the sick, the working poor, the downsized, students, and the servicemen (and women) in combat zones. The 47% are heroes, family, friends, colleagues, acquaintances, and strangers. But you know what matters? The 47% are Americans too. And you know what matters even more? The 47% are people." Katie Hinde

"Mighty Sad Song" music and lyrics by Jim Hinde

2. Thanks for helping get this video out there!

It got over 1000 views in 36 hours between You Tube, DU, Facebook and Twitter.

Jim Hinde's wife, Janet, and their two children continue to be activists and stand up for Justice and Peace.

We are honored to know this family, and to remember all of Jim's music.
