Trump Watch February 7 2017

Day 368:

We are much more similar than we are different

The republican party is a threat to the constitutional order, but its not just because they are idiots.

They are paid to do a job, they are such horrible shits, because they are paid to be horrible shits (and allowed to be paid to be horrible shits).

The reason they have gotten so powerful is because the democrats are paid to lay down and take it.

Neither side is really working for us the people.

Things every politician must work for:

Get money out of politics. Enact a social system that is more fair, living wage, universal health care, free public college, sustainable energy system (no more fossil fuels), and an end to the military industrial complex.

Simple plan:

  1. If you have an election in your area, find the candidate that promises to do the above and vote for them.
  2. If none of them promise all of that run yourself.
  3. If someone promised these things last time but didn’t follow through, see step 2.

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.
