Buck Up, Democrats, and Fight Like Republicans

We're doomed because the Democrats are staggeringly weak-willed. Donald Trump is a cartoon villain who is rising to power on the back of a foreign dictator who attacked our electoral process, who is appointing comical, mustache-twirling villains to his cabinet posts, and the Democrats are fucking silent. In some cases, people call their congresspeople and are told directly, hey, we're in the minority, nothing we can do.

Yes, there is - you can insist on loudly, publicly resisting, at every opportunity, as a unified wall, reminding everyone that Dems won popular vote (and the most Senate votes), Trump's entirely illegitimate, etc. Keep the Republicans constantly on the defensive, file court challenges to gum up everything Trump wants to do including getting the election results certified - make it difficult to impossible for Trump to do anything because his administration is mired in ongoing disputes. That's what the GOP fucking did to Obama and he won the popular vote, decisively - the reason Trump has so many judicial spots available to him is because the GOP refused to let Obama govern.

But ... fucking crickets, man. If Democrats can't find a way to fight this fundamental threat to America, they are useless.

All I see are rumblings about 2020. 2020? Are you kidding? There aren't going to be elections in 2020. Trump hasn't even gotten into office and he's already threatening to eliminate early voting. Once we have the next terrorist attack on US soil - and that's inevitable, and it'll come under the Trump administration - this country will be locked down like a damn prison. And it's like the Dems can't, or won't, see it.

I don't think we know each other--looking at your DW it seems we have some very tangential shared fandoms--but if you're in the Seattle area maybe we should get in touch? I keep thinking there may come a time when knowing humans in geographic proximity may be useful/necessary.
