Trump Watch January 19 2017

Day 349:

Democrats must be the party of opposition

Leaving this up for another day because I am so pissed!

It is unacceptable that there would be any democrats that want to continue warrantless wiretapping of american citizens, and yet there are.

If you are represented by any of the following democrats, consider calling them to express your displeasure, voting for a more progressive primary challenge, or both!

Even if you don’t live in one of these states, you can always call these senators and tell them you don’t like their vote, and you can still donate to more progressive primary challengers.

Hassan
Heitkamp
Jones
King

Manchin

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 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.

Do a little Slacktivism:

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!
