This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 79

Trump Watch:

The EPA Is in shambles, Trump is starting another war, the republicans just appointed a corporate stooge to the highest court, and the Russia shit just wont stop.  Trumps presidency is falling apart around him, and its clear to everyone that he should be impeached.  The only problem is our spineless leaders in Washington either can’t be bothered because they don’t want to upset the money train, or they are actively complicit in his crimes and don’t want to get caught.

Now more than ever its important to vote, to participate in local politics, and to constantly call your senators and reps and make sure they know just how angry you are.

Trump wants to cut funding for meals on wheels but has 100 million to waste on bombing an airfield. (which they apparently can’t even do correctly, or perhaps they never meant it as anything other than a head fake) Don’t let anyone ever tell you we need budget cuts to PBS, or health care for old people.  The truth is there is plenty of money, but they would rather line the pockets of military contractors than help your grandma get her medicine.

The media is complicit in pushing war.  Don’t forget who butters their bread.

Tools of change:

Feel like this is all a bunch of bullshit?  Want to do something about it?

Calling your government representative:

Call your Senator
Call your House Rep (Or use this spreadsheet)
Call your Governor
Call your Attorney General
Or try this website
Fax Congress here (free!)

You can also use 5Calls.org if you are having a hard time figuring out what to say.

Tell them in no uncertain terms that you want them to fight to stop Trump from doing these things. Tell them you will be watching them closely on how they vote, and will hold them accountable during the next election if they cave to Trump.  You can also call other states congress people and threaten to donate to their opponent if they don’t do what you want.

Call the “White House”:

Use this  website to call one of Trump’s many properties he has not put into a blind trust yet, and let them know how you feel (be polite, they are workers just like us, but be firm).

Do a little Slacktivism:

Send Some Text Messages for progressive causes (I know it says textforbernie, but its for a range of progressive candidates)  Or you can have your texts turned into faxes by the ResistBot

Go to a town hall and talk to your congress person in person:

Check when the next town hall is here

Monitor your congressperson:

Keep track of how your senator is voting on cabinet picks here, so you can call them up and give them hell if they vote for any of these worthless fuckers.

See how your elected representatives are voting for or against Trump.

Also be sure to keep track if you live in a district with an upcoming flip-able seat (flip to the left that is)
