Just How Out of Touch Are Trump and the Radical Right? Here’s the List

Image result for signs women's marchIf anyone is confused about why the country is in an uproar right now (aside from the fact that cheeto Mussolini just took office), consider the difference between what the American people want and what is being forced on us by our government and the radical right:
I’m sure there’s more, but those are the issues I could think of off the top of my head. If you would like to suggest other topics for me to research or know of polling on other topics you can direct me to, please leave a comment and I’ll add it to the list.
At any rate, the point is that right now we have a government pursuing policies which the majority of Americans disagree with, often by huge margins. For whatever reason, these people and their supporters seem to be under the impression that they matter more than the rest of us and that they are entitled to force their will on us. How did this happen, you ask? Seeing as we’re supposedly a democracy of the people, by the people and for the people and all. Well, it’s not because they’re winning more votes, that’s for sure:

  1. Rebecca, the Don isn’t worried about being out of touch. The Women’s March has only convinced him to act more swiftly and decisively to move his campaign promises forward at lightening speed…before sufficient protest can be organized.

    Boston Globe article below shows his IMMEDIATE retaliation for dissent against sanctuary cities, making them his first targets for deportation of “illegal immigrants” with plans to be announced this week.

    WHATEVER YOU CAN DO TO GALVANIZE THE WOMEN’S MARCH INTO CITY/STATE/NATIONAL DIVERSITY MOVEMENT NEEDS TO BE DONE NOW!

  2. The Globe reports plans for “targeting cities where local leaders refuse to hand over illegal immigrants for deportation”. What can he do to them? And how soon will his abiity to govern by executive order be challenged in the courts? this last seems to me urgent, before he can get his stooge into the Supreme Court

  3. This post assumes the reader knows already ALL of what is being done. It would have been especially instructive, and powerful, to show a list of what is being done instead of what Americans want, maybe next to this wonderful list you’ve made. I can understand if you think that people who read your blog already know what’s being done, but if you’d like to expand your readership, showing the comparison and how totally off it is would be incredibly powerful, as well as helpful to new readers. Just IMHO.

  4. “69% support leaving Roe v Wade in place”???
    If 69% of our citizens support continuing the ongoing slaughter of our most innocent and most defenseless population God help us all. This once great nation would truly be beyond redemption if this were true!!!

    • A blastocyte is not a baby. it has the full complement of DNA to become a person, but then so does every one of the millions of skin cells you shed every day. You cannot even say it is a potential baby, since it might split and give rise to twins.

      We need a rational discussion of the stage at which the foetus becomes a person. Carl Sagan suggested considering the nervous activity of the brain. Begging the question, and then using emotive language to hide the fact you’ve done so, is intellectually and morally dishonest.

      Meantime, I hope Donna L supports effective birth control education (abstinence-only, we know, is NOT effective). I would want every child to be a wanted child, and think abortion should be legal, safe, and rare.
