Trump Watch June 15 2017

Day 147:

It’s time to look to a better future, and then go out and build it:

The american people are ready for a positive vision of the future.  They are desperate for a responsible vision for the future that works for everyone.  Populism can be positive, it doesn’t have to be about scapegoating the other, or blaming someone for America’s problems.

Our Demands:

Livable Wage

Health Care For All

Pay equity for women

100% renewable energy

Paid Family leave/Daycare

Free Public College

Regulate the Banks

pay for it by taxing the rich and large corporations, while cutting military spending.

We must continue to stress this, we can continue to be against the status quo, but we must create and implement a new one to replace it.

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.

Elections!

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

See if you have a special election in your area!
