Very Progressive idea from my friend Vaneik: “Got to write down everyone that supports him…AND THEN CUT THEM OFF. We need acts. Republicans oppress, Democrats sit on you so that you’re far up their asses. Ok. Now what? I say abandon the Democrats. They don’t have the power of the popular vote- contrary to what we’re being told. Hillary DID NOT WIN THE POPULAR VOTE. Abstainers and third party voters did. The overwhelming voting populace actively voted AGAINST both Trump and Clinton.
We also reach out to the currently stunned average blue-collar, working class, and poor white voter that is having their lunch of fuck-you served to them and we look at them with compassion and offer them our help. We will do this for refugees of other nations and we should do these for refugees of this ghastly election. Hurricanes just tore through the Midwest leaving thousands of of white Trump voters in a state of emergency. We help them and we give information. They might be hostile, but they’re broken right now. Now is the time to offer them food and shelter and information outside of the right wing media and those charlatans that preach how to hate from a pulpit that sits under a a fake white Jesus. Out of our comfort zones, out of our echo chambers.”
This is a tangible action. We the people help each other.
And another: Call your senator to tell them to revote on Sessions, block Tillerson and DeVos.
Find the number for your senator here
Call during business hours.
Use the following example script:
Hello. My name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent of [Senator____]. I’m calling because I’m concerned about the nomination of Betty DeVos as Education Secretary.
It is clear that Devos has a severe lack of knowledge in America’s public school systems or any viable plan for how to improve them.
The majority of America’s school children attend public schools. We cannot leave their futures and the future of our country in the hands of a woman whose ideas to privatize school funding have already left the state of Michigan and its children in shambles. Her financial conflicts of interest are also staggering.
I urge [Senator __] to use his/her voice in Congress over the coming week to make clear that Betty DeVos should not be confirmed, and that President Trump should nominate a new, more qualified person for the position of Education Secretary. The future of our country is depending on our vote. Thank you for your time.”
