Trump Watch August 6 2017

Day 193:

The cops are closing in:

Happy Sunday. I hope you are recharging with family and friends, getting ready for another week of fighting.

Donald Trump is too stupid to not get caught, but that doesn’t mean we can stop fighting, a lot of much smarter, just as horrible people still need to be removed from office. History will judge us based on how we react to these times.

I for one plan on fighting for a bold progressive agenda that will make everyone’s (including the rich) life better.

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.

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)
