    Re- the "Resistance"

    Our representatives need to stop holding everything the American people agree on*** hostage to the few things on which we don’t.

    It’s not that people in the US are so divided; it’s that our “representatives” are divided from US.

    Our reps aren’t mainly “resisting” each other; they’re mainly resisting US.

    ________________

    ***That people working three jobs shouldn’t be struggling to make ends meet.
    That corporations shouldn’t be able to export jobs and avoid reasonable taxation and labor and environmental protections by means of treaties like the TPP.
    That everyone deserves healthcare, and that some version of Medicare for All is probably the best solution.
    That every child deserves a decent education.
    That young people shouldn’t have to mortgage their futures for decades to afford college.
    That our infrastructure needs rebuilding.
    That we should invest in green energy.
    That bankers who cause crashes like the one in 2008 should be prosecuted (the way hundreds were after the S&L crisis).
    That banks should not be allowed to gamble with depositors’ savings (if we want to make risky investments, we can put our savings in stocks, or our cousin’s start-up, thank you).
    That the 1% should pay more taxes.
    That kids who grew up in the US should have a path to stay here rather than being forced to “return” to countries they have no meaningful connection with.
    That law-abiding citizens should not have to fear the police.
    That our privacy should not be invaded where there’s no warrant and no reasonable suspicion of wrongdoing.
    That not all news media on the planet should be owned by six megacorporations.
    That the internet should not be subject to politically- or economically-motivated censorship or discrimination.
    That our elections should be one person, one vote, based on auditable paper records rather than on black-box electronics.

    That special interests should not be allowed to buy our government with large campaign contributions.

    1. Great post! n/t

    If you dislike Trump, you should vote for him so we can change his party from within. Yes, Hillary supporters, this is how ridiculous you sound.

    Thank you for sharing this.

    "Someone hacks the DNC allowing all of America to see how the DNC operates as one of the most corrupt political machines in national history. Ergo, Hillary Clinton should be installed as President by judicial fiat. And if you do not agree to this scheme you deserve to be brought up on charges of treason because fascism." - NUGrrl, december 2016 “Once a person has been determined to be an UNTRUSTWORTHY LIAR, their pretend stances on important issues are simply not relevant to rational discussion.” – Ida Briggs, September 2016

    In a reasonable country we would already be there.

    We really must express our contempt for all politicians of any political party that is satisfied with the status quo.
