Day 356:

Oligarchs Are Not Looking Out For You

Clinton wanted to raise the min wage only after being politically forced to by her much more left leaning opponent. (and to 12, not 15). She also has said she is very good friends with wall street. And LOUDLY proclaimed that universal health care would NEVER EVER come to pass (

Obama took two wars and turned them into 7, ramping up dramatically the amount of conflicts America was in, not as you describe it “slowed” (

Obama bailed out wall street banks instead of people in trouble on their mortgage and as such most of the “recovery” from the recession went to the top, which is why we see rich people doing great, the stock market soaring, but huge levels of poverty and a shrinking middle class. (

He created Obama care, but it was a right wing health care plan thought up by the heritage foundation, implemented by Mit Romney first in Mass., and as we have seen is a program with no cost controls, and is not even close to universal health care, that while it has helped a lot of folks get health care is mostly good at making private hospitals and pharma companies very rich. (

He did all this while controlling both houses of congress and the executive…If he had so wished he could have used executive power to break up large companies and then rammed through universal health care while the D’s controlled the government. He/the d’s could have closed gitmo, ended the NSA spy program, removed the bush tax cuts (which they made permanent instead), bailed out the home owners instead of the banks, not used drone strikes to kill ameican citizens without trial, not started wars all over, raised the min wage, got us free public college, etc etc etc.

Obama and Clinton are not progressive, they would hardly be considered liberal. They are more like moderate republicans from the 80s. They could have done a lot to help the poor, they could have done a lot to stop the oligarchy trying to take over this country, but they didn’t and that is why we have Trump.

You don’t get a Trump when folks are doing well, you get a Trump when racism, late state capitalism fueled inequality, and government by private money intersect.

I fear what will happen if we can’t right this ship.

Tools of change:

Feel like this is all a bunch of bullshit? Want to do something about it?

Calling your government representative:

Call your Senator
Call your House Rep (Or use this spreadsheet)
Call your Governor
Call your Attorney General
Or try this website
Fax Congress here (free!)

You can also use if you are having a hard time figuring out what to say.

Tell them in no uncertain terms that you want them to fight to stop Trump from doing these things. Tell them you will be watching them closely on how they vote, and will hold them accountable during the next election if they cave to Trump. You can also call other states congress people and threaten to donate to their opponent if they don’t do what you want.

Phone Bank for Progressive Candidates:

Call the White House:


Call the “White House”:

Use this website to call one of Trump’s many properties he has not put into a blind trust yet, and let them know how you feel (be polite, they are workers just like us, but be firm).

Do a little Slacktivism:

Send Some Text Messages for progressive causes (I know it says textforbernie, but its for a range of progressive candidates) Or you can have your texts turned into faxes by the ResistBot

Go to a town hall and talk to your congress person in person:

Check when the next town hall is here

Monitor your congressperson:

Keep track of how your senator is voting on cabinet picks here, so you can call them up and give them hell if they vote for any of these worthless fuckers.

See how your elected representatives are voting for or against Trump.


Also be sure to keep track if you live in a district with an upcoming flip-able seat (flip to the left that is)

See if you have a special election in your area!
