WHEN YOU GET TO THIS TIME IN LIFE, YOU HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO TAKE ACTION.
As promised, almost every week at least for awhile, I will be posting an action you can take to assert your resistance to Donald Trump.
This week check out John Cassidy’s New Yorker’s blog above. If you marched you can check off as one of the nine ways to oppose. If you went to the airport to protest the immigration ban on Muslims, you can check another off.
Now pick one or two suggestions that Cassidy gives you and JUST DO IT.
Perhaps you can pick one option which will take money or time. Also pick a real easy option. This might be buying a resist T Shirt and wearing it openly. One of the hardest options might be to pick out a neighbor, friend or even family that voted for Trump and send them a T Shirt that just says something about how great America is now!
There has been a lot of pussy footing (sorry about that) around while not trying to insult a friend, family or colleague. But there are ways of making sure of exactly where you stand without insulting them. Sending them literature on only one subject with facts substantiated by experts (like climate control) and add that people who voted for Trump don’t need to accept all of his ideas! Materials by McCain or other republicans about resisting Torture is another area that you could perhaps make inroads into their listening to you.
If you don’t care about insulting them then one of the greatest ideas I heard of was to donate to the ACLU in their name. They will receive a thank you card from the ACLU. Realize this will probably terminate any relationship you have with them and you will have to take that responsibility.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. REMEMBER:
THE ONLY THING NECESSARY FOR THE TRIUMPH OF EVIL IS FOR GOOD PEOPLE TO DO NOTHING!”
