I have been working with resistance groups for only a few months. I have learned so much in that short time, met some wonderful, amazing people, and found a sense of purpose.
The drag of this is it looks like the Resistance may not be needed before long, what with Trump being investigated for Obstruction of Justice. Impeachment papers are being filed, and the White House executives are lawyering up. I can see this going pretty deep into Trump’s staff: Pence, Bannon, Kuschner, Ivanka, and all the rest of the degenerates and unqualified bozos. And I celebrate to see this happening.
Even if this all goes down, the Resistance will need to work to repair the damage done in these short six months of Trump’s tyranny. To that end, it is going to take a lot of work to get people to vote. Time for the Independents to grow in number and create a strong third party. We need to ensure that it will be impossible in the future that no single party gains control of the House, Senate and Presidency at one time. We need to eliminate Gerrymandering, and that will not be easy with a Republican Congress. We need to eliminate Lobbyists. They’re just glorified beggars, aren’t they? Disgusting humans.
To make that happen, however, we need to inform people of the importance of voting and when voting, how to do so. We need to teach our children and immigrants the importance of voting for all elected positions. Including the School Board. If more people actually became aware of what their school boards are doing, perhaps we can save education from the greasy talons of Betsy DeVos.
We are the people, remember? We are the people who create this country and hold onto the values on which it was founded. That means taking back control of our government at all levels. That means education. It means hard work. It needs your time and effort. This is a hard thing to do, for people have families, work (sometimes at two or more jobs). People have cars that break down. They get ill, lose jobs, lose insurance, and in the end, lose hope. It would be good for people to have hope again.
I hope this blog will help educate people on how the government works, where your tax money goes, and the danger of Gerrymandering. Here is an excellent explanation of Gerrymandering and why it is dangerous. I didn’t know how bad this was until recently. Gerrymandering lines should be erased–permanently–if we don’t want a single party system.
