As Chris Hedges says below:
Revolt is a political necessity, it is a moral imperative, we must not be complicit. We must live in truth.
The moment we defy power, in any form, we are victorious! The moment we stand with the oppressed, and accept being treated like the oppressed, we are victorious! The moment we hold up a flickering light in the darkness for others to see, we are victorious! The moment we thwart the building of a pipeline of a fracking sight we are victorious! The moment keep a mother faced with deportation with her children we are victorious! The moment we mass in the streets to defy police violence, we are victorious!
We must turn the tide of fear, we must, by taking the streets, make the ruling elites frightened of us!
To sit idle, to refuse to defy these forces, to by our silence be complicit, will atrophy and wither our souls. It will leave us husks of human beings.
This not only a fight for life, it is a fight that gives life! It is the supreme expression of faith, it is the belief that no matter how great the power of evil, the power of love is greater.
I do not in the end fight fascists, because I will win, I fight fascists because they are fascists.
We got these assholes on the run now! Progressives have won across the entire country! Your vote counts, and has been counted. This is the first drizzle of snow that will end up being a landslide. Don’t give up though, now that our political adversaries have seen the first inkling of what is coming they will only fight harder.
They have the money, but we have the numbers. We can not lose if we don’t give up.

Guns are not allowed in the U.S. Capitol and every congressman has Obamacare…in case you're wondering how these people really feel.

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.
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:
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)
