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.Wood, Ohio Barbarian, mick063 and 55 othersArt from Ark, ozoneman, HeartoftheMidwest, Spirochete, Ejbr, ZimInSeattle, ThomPaine, mikedub285, mother earth, travelerxxx, Oogie, PDiddie, Shlabotnik, djean111, bemildred, 3FingerBrown, Agony, davidthegnome, Two way street, Lorien, Tuesday, cleverflamingo, jhart3333, Enthusiast, seefleur, Fire with Fire, cui bono, Peace Patriot, peacecorps, Baba OhReally, WillyT, area woman, Land of Enchantment, disillusioned73, mrdmk, Xyzse, Ferd Berfel, Odd John, Silver Witch, HomerRamone, GloriaMundi, Blackspade, Marym625, Betty Karlson, canoeist52, Smarmie Doofus, Piperay, Stockholmer, RadicleFantast, Fuddnik, beltanefauve, tonyl, OCMI, Ichingcarpenter, leveymg like thishttps://www.battleforthenet.com/ 1% “To Do” list:
