While everyone is mourning the fact that their favorite Democrat didn’t make it into the White House this last election, and is screaming for impeachment of the Orange Autocrat, our country is being looted by the rich and powerful, America is being rapidly becoming a military state, endless war is destroying any prospects of a better future for our children, and most frighteningly of all, our democracy is being taken apart piece-by-piece. Which means that if we wait until 2020, it will be too late. Yes, it’s a pleasant thought that the country will be so fed up by the end of Trump’s term, people will come to their senses and elect as President some forward-looking visionary — a “people’s candidate” — who will fight for everyday citizens.
BUT WE BETTER WAKE UP! WE NEED TO LOOK AROUND AT WHAT’S GOING ON RIGHT NOW! BECAUSE BY 2020, THE AMERICA WE EVERYDAY CITIZENS NOW LOVE WILL NO LONGER EXIST. ANY HOPE OF REPAIRING THE DAMAGE WILL BE GONE FOREVER.
Yes, the president is powerful. Yes, Trump is an embarrassment, a buffoon, a temperamental idiot, a narcissist and a sociopath. But let’s remember two very important, fundamental facts:
FACT #1 — It’s Congress that makes the laws.
FACT #2 — Congress can impeach the president, but the president can’t impeach Congress.
Which means that full control of Congress is the way to stop Trump. And just as importantly . . .
IMPEACHING TRUMP WILL NOT STOP OUR CURRENT HORRIBLE, DESTRUCTIVE CONGRESS!
We have to get rid of the crooks and liars ourselves by sending them packing November 2018.
Congress right now is shredding everything which has taken decades to put together to improve the general welfare of common citizens. It is passing legislation which transfers even more wealth into the hands of the already incomprehensibly wealthy. It is facilitating the disenfranchisement of voters, the wholesale destruction of our already frayed fabric of democracy. It is giving more power and control to corporations, so they can pursue their predations and exploitations with total unfettered abandon. It is turning America into a fortress of paranoia, xenophobia, racist persecution — a surveillance/imprisonment state, with a population divided against itself, immersed in fear, angry, consumed by suspicion.
We are fed a constant stream of promises that things will get better, that our elected officials are working for us, that if there’s a problem, it’s either the Russians or it’s Trump, or it’s the Russians AND Trump working together to make a mess of things.
What’s the truth? The truth is that we have NO ONE IN WASHINGTON DC WORKING FOR EVERYDAY CITIZENS. They’re all there to serve their deep-pocketed campaign donors, Wall Street, the big investment banks, the military-industrial-security-complex, transnational corporations, the .o1%.
Yes, Trump is A PROBLEM. But he’s not THE PROBLEM. THE PROBLEM IS EVERYONE WHO NOW HOLDS PUBLIC OFFICE in our nation’s capitol! Every single one of them!
So don’t be fooled! Forget about 2020. We need to push for regime change in Congress NOW!
- Because if a populist-progressive wins the White House in 2020, he or she will need a supportive Congress to push a populist-progressive agenda.
- Because if a populist-progressive does not with the White House in 2020, we will still need a Congress to push an America which works for all Americans, not just the rich and powerful.
- Because if we can elect a populist-progressive Congress in 2018, it will infinitely improve the chances of our electing a populist-progressive to the White House in 2020.
- Because getting rid of the pay-for-play puppets of the ruling elite now in Congress, is the only way to keep alive the hope of real reform and of moving forward, whatever happens!
Time is running out, folks.
We need REGIME CHANGE IN WASHINGTON DC, starting by electing a new Congress in November 2018!
