We made it to 100 days…sheesh remember 10 years ago when we were at day 1. Trump’s administration is aging like a dog. I have to say I am disappointed by not surprised. Ever since I was born presidents have been getting steadily shittier. Reagan was atrocious, Clinton and both Bush’s were hardly different, Obama was the best republican president we have had since Nixon, and now Trump. Each has done their part to destroy and dismantle America. They did it for money, and they did it for something as petty as money. There is no grand conspiracy, there is no volcano with an evil genius. As much as Exxon, or the Koch brothers would like to think they are in control, the sad fact is, this is what you get when you let money rule instead of the people.
The last time we had allowed government to stagnate into such a mess, the last time we had fucked over multiple generations was the late 1800’s. Robber barons ruled the nation, there was a great depression, and in general the rich had it great, the poor not so much. The solution back then was FDR and two world wars….lets hope we can figure out how to fix it this time without murdering an entire generation of young men.
Trump is a symptom of the problem, not the cause of them. Unless we fundamentally rework government we will just get another Trump. This is why you need to vote in your local elections, why every race from Dog Catcher, to Senator must be a big deal. We need a soup to nuts reboot of the process that governs us.
I would humbly suggest you start with the Left. The democrats are hardly the opposition anymore, opting instead to be republicans that are ok with abortion and gay people. Smart, inventive progressives who actually care about the environment, pay equity, a strong living wage, unions, health care for all, free college, and an end to money in politics are the kinds of people we need to start electing.
Once the left has been returned to the opposition you will quickly see what it looks like to have two parties who actually fight each other again, instead of one large party with two different wings.
Good luck to us all if we can not. Things like global warming, and income inequality are not going to wait for us to get our shit together, they are ticking time bombs and will go off if we don’t do something, and do something fast.
On this 100 day milestone reflect on that, renew your efforts, remember who and what you love, and FIGHT!
Trump Again Derides Elizabeth Warren as ‘Pocahontas’, will no one from the right step up and point out that this is abject racism?
Upcoming Action Against Trump:
Lets get these people elected!
Yes, Obamacare is more popular than President Trump, it still sucks, and should be replaced with medicare for all, but its far better than nothing.
In Fox News poll, only 36 percent of voters would re-elect President Trump, yes but would they pick Hillary instead? No they wouldn’t because Trump didn’t win the election, Hillary lost it. She was the wrong candidate, ran a shitty campaign, and had bad views on a lot of things.
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)
