    New Political Platform: Resist Trump

    https://www.indivisibleguide.com/web/

    There is a movement growing and after years of obstructionism, dog whistling, lying, fear mongering, hypocrisy, and outright cowardice from GOP lawmakers it is time to take a stand. It isn't violence in the streets that will win the day but the ballot box and organized, concerted engagement. Remember to use the media, do not be used by it. Most important, a government that fears its populace works best so terrify the hell out of Trump and his literal cronies by keeping the pressure at 100.

    To the Trump supporters, nothing but love and respect to my fellow countrymen, but I am not on board with the direction you want to take this country or the man you have chosen to helm the ship and I intend to fight it tooth and nail through every lawful means at my disposal.

    After watching the same people who lambasted Benghazi turn a blind eye to Yemen, who criticized every penny spent on security for Obama but not even blush at the millions being spent on Melania, who complained about the "Swamp" in D.C. but pretend it is okay that the new cabinet is worth more than 100 million Americans and who have a long list of ethics complaints, who decried government spending as bankrupting the nation but now support trillion dollar infrastructure and a useless $21 billion wall, who screamed how crooked Hillary was but defend Conway's advertising Ivanka and Flynn's treason with Russia, and who applaud nationalism while trying to repeal ACA with no replacement when a third of the country doesn't know it is the same as Obamacare and it will leave up to 20 million Americans without access healthcare....it is clear they are putting partisanship first, not country first.

    I gave Trump a chance and it only took three weeks. I hope the new political platform is "Resist Trump". I think the best message to resist him is a "One Nation" message because what makes America great isn't who we force and keep out from baseless fear. And it isn't domineering and brow beating others into submission. It is the values we have as a people to stand up against the wrong in the world and to be there for one another.

    You do realize that the 20 million number is a lie, right?

    Resist sounds much better than becoming the new party of no - kind of like an evolved position sounds much better than a flip-flop.

    To promise to resist is a fine plan worthy of the value of liberal thought.

    In other words, your side only takes the "high ground" when they are in power. When they lose they want to get down and dirty just as much as those they accused of taking the low ground before.

    Re: New Political Platform: Resist Trump

    Dear Americans,

    It does not matter if the number of our fellow countrymen who are left without access to healthcare under the Trump Agenda is 1 million or 20 million. What matters is that in this country, we take care of our own! The healthy lift up the sick!

    It is not party first. It is not partisanship first. It is ONE NATION. It is putting the country first. Trump had the opportunity to rise above the short comings of those who preceded him. He failed. His followers had the opportunity to hold him accountable as they criticized others for not holding their leaders accountable. They failed. The failures cannot see beyond their partisan vanity, so those who are willing to resist the hypocrisy must do so for the good of our democracy.

    With love and respect,

    Your Fellow Countryman

    And of course what the republican congress did with Obama was completely different. "we will oppose everything he does no matter what" guess who said that?

    Elections have concequences. The Republicans were elected to keep Obama under control.
