Trump Watch December 6 2017

Day 311:

CALL YOUR SENATORS!

If you senator voted yes on the horrific tax cut for rich oligarchs, then call them up and promise to do everything in your power to make sure this is the last term they serve in office. Tell them you will be volunteering for their opponents, giving money to their opponents and voting for their opponents.

If you are unsure about who voted for the bill here is a clue if they have an R next to their name they voted for it, if they don’t they didn’t.

Tell them to do SOMETHING, ANYTHING to stop the FCC from destroying net neutrality. Again mention that if they don’t you wont be voting for them.

Think like a Utopian, Fight like a Whirlwind!!

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.

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!
