Trump Watch September 14 2017

Day 229:

Support universal health care!

Everything is impossible until it isn’t.  Women getting the right to vote, freeing the slaves, gay marriage, 15$ minimum wage, universal health care, donald trump getting elected.

Nothing is impossible with a lot of hard work and luck (and in the case of Trump, a Clinton running for office again).

I want everyone in America to have universale health care, and its looking like Bernies bill might do just that.  It almost certainly wont pass, its impossible, will never happen…until it does happen.

Might not be now, might not be next election, but if we keep pushing, and we enshrine this idea as a core democratic party ideal it will happen.  We need to turn the democrats into a party that fights back instead of one that rolls over for the big money.

This can and must happen!  Call your senator today and urge them to cosign bernies medicare for all bill, and call your rep and tell them to cosign the conyers health care bill.  It wont happen unless we make it happen!

If your senator/reps wont vote the way you want, VOTE THEM OUT OF OFFICE.  Maybe the next person in that seat will be a little more receptive to the demands of the people.

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!
