The New YearThe year 2018 will go down in history as the year when the United States did (or did not) stand up to a threat to their democracy . The Resistance Movements will lead the way to undo the choke hold of the oligarchs on those who are supposed to be leaders and protectors of our constitution, but have made deals with the devil and are beholden to him and no longer to their constituents ... So we have a "Tax Cut" that takes from the poor and gives to the rich including the president who will gain millions of dollars, we have millions thrown off their medical insurance, we have our National Parks being handed over to drilling, fracking, logging and mining, our withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord, our elections being manipulated by a foreign power and our government denying or ignoring it, Misogyny being normalized and our clean water act being reversed. We have a president who is more interested in undoing what Obama accomplished than in keeping his campaign promises about jobs, infrastructure, the rights of the Dreamers, racial and religious equality ... and this president thinks Nazis and White Supremacists are nice people. So that is what I am thinking about this new year ... how do we stop this disaster. I am looking to the women of our country to continue what they started on February 21st, 2017 ... Resisting all of it and inspiring all right minded people to step up and fight to get our country back.
Interested in Resistance? ... here is a list of some groups who will provide contacts, inspiration and information:
