Don’t Stop The Fight
I been giving small donation to people in politics I think are important even if I don’t live in that state (5 or 10 bucks) and I have noticed something over and over.
There are basically two kinds of democrats running right now. What I am calling the corporate/Clinton/Obama wing, and the Progressive/Bernie/Warren wing.
When you give money to a corporate democrat you get emails back that basically can be summarized as “the sky is falling, give me more money right now!” or “My opponent is Horrible vote for me!!!”
When you give money to a progressive democrat you get emails that lay out policy positions, express a vision for the future, and basically lay out why you should vote for the candidate by expressing a policy vision for the future.
I gave 10$ to Doug Jones and got nothing but hair on fire emails about Roy Moore. Nothing about policy, nothing about his vision for the future, no reason why I would want to vote for him other than his opponent is horrible (which he is).
This is almost exactly the play book Clinton ran, and it is seeming to be just as successful….
You can’t fight something with nothing. Doug Jones should be on TV/Radio/Internet every single day talking about how he is going to make Alabama better, instead the same stupid high price corporate consultants are running the same same stupid play book they have been running since Obama.
Look at Virginia, a socialist and a Trans woman beat long time republican incumbents by focusing on issues and how to make the world better for people.
Roy Moore is one of the most beatable candidates ever, but Doug Jones is not running on his own ideas, he is running on “look at this horrible guy!”
Keep thinking like a Utopian.
No surprise that the guy who created Trump University is excited about attacking the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

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)
