I’m old enough to remember the protests of the 60’s. There’s a couple of big differences this time. As bad as Nixon was, Trump makes Nixon look like George Washington. We knew we could impeach Nixon if we found enough evidence, and because the Democrats would do the right thing. Every indication is the fascist GOP is perfectly willing to dump our democracy for more power and a tax cut. The other difference is, in the 60’s it was mostly the youth who were fighting for their future. Today, it’s still seems like it’s mostly the people from the 60’s, but now a whole new generation is waking up and starting to join in the fight to save our democracy their future! We really are stronger together.
The response to the open display of fascism has been remarkable!
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) received more than $10 million since Saturday and has hundreds of thousands of new members in the day since it took action against President Trump's executive order…
“I’ve never seen anything like this,” Romero said. “People are fired up and want to be engaged. What we’ve seen is an unprecedented public reaction to the challenges of the Trump administration.”
“I hope Trump enjoys losing,” ACLU national director Faiz Shakir toldYahoo News Saturday. “He’s going to lose so much we’re going to get sick and tired of his losing.”
Pace yourself, this is going to be a long hard fight, but we shall NEVER EVER Surrender!
