And yet I’m saying I’m willing to stand up and help fight against DJT.
I have suggested a general strike as a potentially significant response to the election outcome. You believe this is a bad idea? Do you have a better one? This idea of his that he’ll get to do whatever he wants to enrich himself because of his position completely without being called on the conflict of interest and without impact to the wheels of commerce should be challenged as early as we can muster. I would see an army of “human resources” standing in the roads on the day after, or the very day of his inauguration, blocking all progress, to show him otherwise.
And yes I would do this now despite the pain and hardship I know it will cause, for delaying the pain and hardship only compounds the interest.
I am looking forward to SSI being there for me when I retire, and am aware of the shenanigans pulled by Reagan to deliver a disgusting tax break to those who truly are focusing on wealth at the expense of the rest of us. They want to reneg on paying back the loan they used to create their wealth. I wish I had some of that myself. However even if one did have the “privilege” of focusing on wealth, whatever that means, if they are willing join the fight for justice and equal access to opportunity, then I’d welcome them with open arms.
