Trump Watch September 22 2017

Day 237:

End The Giant Military Budgets!

No money for health care, 700 billion for the military.  No money for free public college, 700 billion for the military.  No money for infrastructure, for renewable energy, for social safety nets, 700 BILLION FUCKING DOLLARS for the military!

This new giant military spending bill was passed by almost EVERY senator, including the “lefties.”  I am seriously disappointed in my senators, two solid blue state senators, and supposedly some of the most liberal ones in the senate.

Call your senator and tell them you are not happy that they voted for a huge military budget, statistically you will be represented by one that voted for it, because almost all of them did.  (Bernie Sanders did not…)

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!
