First, PROTECT yourself. If you need a loan, get it NOW--rates have already gone up three times since the election. MOVE your retirement out of the stock market and into a stable fund that is guaranteed NOT to lose your principal.
CALL your U.S. Senators and Representatives DAILY at their LOCAL offices. SHOW UP in person if you can. Here is our list of demands:
1. DEMAND they support Barbara Boxer's bill to ABOLISH the Electoral College--popular vote only. DEMAND paper ballots only, and DEMAND audit trails be published in local papers. DEMAND they LET ALL Americans vote (undo voter roll purges and other Black voter suppression) and MAKE Election Day a national holiday for all.
2. FIGHT trump's personnel appointments and FILIBUSTER ALL trump's SCOTUS appointments. Supporting Citizens United or opposing the rights of women, immigrants, and the poor are UNACCEPTABLE. This is NON-NEGOTIABLE.
3. DEMAND trump's impeachment--DEMAND he be investigated NOW for corruption and conflict of interest. DEMAND to see his taxes.
4. REMIND them THEY'RE FIRED if they don't obstruct, obstruct, obstruct trump and the Republicans from Day 1. If they resist, REMIND them that Hillary WON the popular vote.
5. DEMAND restoration of the Fairness Doctrine--DEMAND fair, fact-based, accurate media free from the false equivalencies and unchecked free coverage that foisted trump on us.
CALL President Obama every day:
1. DEMAND a SPECIAL PROSECUTOR to investigate FBI director James Comey.
2. DEMAND the Army Corps of Engineers go to Flint to dig up and replace all the poisoned pipes.
AND THE REST...
1. VOLUNTEER for and DONATE to all the organizations that D. LOSER trump is targeting. Get on their mailing lists and donate as much time and money as you can to Planned Parenthood, NRDC, and causes that matter to you. Change your cell phone carrier from whatever it is to CREDO, which is a Sprint re-seller that supports blue causes. Planned Parenthood is especially important to support right now--women will die if we don't.
2. ORGANIZE an opposition movement with Michael Moore, Bernie, Elizabeth Warren, MoveOn, the hip-hop community, DFA, etc. fueled by young people who, as with Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter, don't tolerate BS and are relentless in their resistance to authority. TAKE OVER the Democratic Party.
3. DEMAND the DNC APOLOGIZE to Bernie Sanders and for giving Clinton the questions in advance at the Flint debate and for its anti-democratic system of "superdelegates" who are elected by no one. If no apology is soon forthcoming from the DNC, we will issue the apology in person once we take over the party.
4. PROTEST all media that inflicted trump on us.
5. SIGN UP for daily headlines from Daily Kos, AlterNet, and "Democracy Now!" SIGN petitions. ATTEND town halls and protests. GET INVOLVED!
OK, friends--let's get busy!
