Trump Watch September 13 2017

Day 228:

Stick it to the man

And by the man I mean big money, represented by Trump and the republican party and the corporate democrats.  We are hanging on by a thread here, with almost our entire government taken over by the big money.

If you really want to fight, you have to vote, and that means getting out there and getting good candidates through the primary process.

You most likely have an election in your area happening in the next week or two that you don’t even know about.

Find your next local election and VOTE!

Might I suggest you do so for a progressive candidate that will support a living wage (at least 15$), health care for all, environmental protections, energy sustainability, taxing the rich, ending the wars, pay equity for women, universal health care, free public college, and any other issues you hold important.

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

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!
