Trump Watch July 18 2017

Day 180:

Time To Counter Punch:

When your opponent is on the ropes, and about about to fall, do not just sit there and let them get their stamina back, punch them in the god damn face!  What that tortured political metaphore means is that now that the republicans Tax cut bill pretending to be a health care law has failed, its time to propose single payer.

A well crafted single payer universal medicare for all style health care plan would fix everything wrong with Obamacare, and a whole lot more.  Its a good plan, and unlike the republicans plan would be easy to defend, because its good for the people.

If the democrats don’t fight back, and don’t propose their own plan then you know they are worthless.  Call up your democratic senator or representative, tell them you want universal single payer medicare for all style health care, and you want them to fight for it, or lose their job to a progressive that will.

Vote or be ground under the wheel of greed.

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 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.

Phone Bank for Progressive Candidates:

Call the White House:


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)

See if you have a special election in your area!
