The time has passed to take action – But it’s not too late

Don’t waste your time questioning the conscious of a hard core Trump supporter. If you can continue to respect a person who sexually gropes women, lying more than 50% of the time, and obstructing an investigation by Congress, then you have bought into beliefs and practices, outside the mainstream morality and values of our culture. In recent surveys Trump’s approval rating has reached a low of 34% which can be interpreted to mean they still respect his presidency. They also believe he’s doing an excellent job as President although relatively few can name a single accomplishment other than signing executive orders. Most of which are lingering in legal turmoil and future lawsuits that may drag their disposition out for years.

The rest of us has to fight to maintain the American values of non-obstructive voting rights, the freedom of women to choose, and fair none discriminatory practices by government. Even Thomas Jefferson knew the division among party leaders would do harm to the country. Jefferson once said, “The greatest good we can do our country is to heal its party divisions and make them one people. I do not speak of their leaders who are incurable, but of the honest and well-informed body of the people.” (Letter to John Dickinson J. MSS. July 23, 1801). Most of us realize that Republicans place party first and country second. For if you are illegally obstructing people from voting, what does that say of your value for country and the freedoms it was created upon?

So what can the rest of us do? Brand Trump. This is a tactic that worked for him and we should use it to the fullest extent possible. Never just referred to him as Donald Trump – referred to him as Lying Trump, The Liar King, The Groper in Chief, or pick another phrase and consistently use it. Each day or even each week, point out his inconsistencies and lies and share them on social media. Remember, the tea party movement was predicated on a constant message that was rarely truthful. And we must do the same without any hesitation or respite from action. Be “Indivisible,”  impossible to divide or separate.
