The clear path forward:
When you have a fever, you don’t just cool yourself down and call it a day. You have a fever because of an infection. Cooling down the fever will do nothing to cure the root problem. Left untreated that infection will overheat you again.
Similarly Trump is the fever, not the infection. The infection is money in politics. The rich have purchased politicians, and the politicians do what the rich people want. Until we get that money out of politics, its going to be an uphill battle to get anything useful done.
If Hillary had been president we would have gotten the same shit, with a nicer smile. In a way we should be thankful that we got the stupid incompetent bungling oligarch instead of someone like Hillary who is smart and competent and would (much like Obama did) continue to prop this very broken system up.
If you want to help the people of Huston, donate to the red cross, but that is just putting an ice pack on the forehead of a very sick body politic. If you want to cure the infection, vote vote vote. Vote for someone who doesn’t take corporate money, vote for someone interested in overturning citizens united, who cares about raising the minimum wage, who will fight climate change, who wants to make public university free, who will fight for universal health care.
If you keep voting for the same old senators, and the same old representatives, and mayors, and governors, you are going to get the same old shit.
Study, fight, love win!

Tools of change:
Feel like this is all a bunch of bullshit? Want to do something about it?
Calling your government representative:
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:
Go to a town hall and talk to your congress person in person:
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.
Also be sure to keep track if you live in a district with an upcoming flip-able seat (flip to the left that is)
