Can a person remain a member of the Republican Party when the Party and the Republicans in Congress refuse to speak out against the intentions and # actions, legal and not, of Donald J. Trump?
Ever since the election I have been searching for it.
Now, I realize that all those people who voted against their own self-interest will now have to suffer through the next four years the same as I will. Only I will have the satisfaction of knowing that I wasn’t scammed, hoodwinked, had the wool pulled over my eyes, lied to, cheated, victimized and made a sucker.
inauguration that I urge boycotting tomorrow.
We should boycott:
TV (other than non public channels which don’t carry news in any form),
This boycott is about all four branches of government that no longer serve the betterment of we the people.
That’s correct, the four branches: the executive, the legislative, the judicial and (the one not specifically cited other than in the first amendment) the fourth estate.
All four have failed us, the people.
The executive branch has failed to use all the powers at its disposal for us.
The legislative branch has failed to pass laws that were needed to get us out of the recession in a timely way and instead has focused in obstruction for political purposes.
The judicial branch has failed to uphold the constitution.
And most importantly, the fourth estate has failed to report the news choosing entertainment and ratings to factual reporting.
All four of these institutions live in their own bubbles. This boycott on the 20th of January 2017 is meant to burst those individual bubbles and let them know that we will no longer stand for their failures to carry out their respective constitutional jobs “in order to form a more perfect union”.
No elected official should leave their office richer than they entered.
No news agency should be reporting unconfirmed news or possible news in order to improve ratings and their bottom line.
Social media must address what their function is to be as part of the fourth estate. If they refuse to monitor what is published on their sites, then the federal government may need to provide guideline or enforce those that are already on the books.
This needs to be a shot across the bow. The citizens of this country arewho they must serve; not their donors or advertisers.
I urge all my fellow citizens to boycott all news related media tomorrow.
IT IS TIME!
Privatization’s dirty little secret is that it cuts out the end consumer. For example our city privatized it’s waterworks. Any complaints? Too bad. As long as the city manager is happy with his perceived savings, the public be damned.
After all, the provider gets his money from the city; he owes the citizens nothing.
Turn the electric utility over to the electric company, guess what? You get charged to pay your bill by credit card.
When your politicians talk about “privatization” providing savings, ask them where the consumer’s voice is. The voters do not elect the board of directors of a company. Therefore, they have no voice.
The President’s “anti-colonial” policies? What the ____? The colonies were governed by the elite of the colonies. Only white, male, land holding, tax paying individuals could vote. This is what Guiliani would like to return to. The wealthy having all the power. The announced policy of “Middle Class Economics” flies in the face of the one percent’s interests, ergo, “anti-colonialism”
When Republicans accuse Democrats of class warfare, the response by Democrats ought to be “Damn Right”. We are on the side of the middle class workers.
Which side are you fighting for? The same one you have been on for decades with your failed “trickle down economics”?
You need to remember Einstein’s description of insanity.
