Many of us ARE “Taking responsibility for confronting this presidency.” For example, the public, nationwide marches on Saturday, January 21, 2017 are reliably reported to have been the largest public demonstration of all time in the United States! Further, we citizens have a REPRESENTATIVE government, and so you and I have no authority (much less the collective mountains of cash) to individually sue for removal of this poseur in the White House.
I do agree with your assertion about “…responsible citizens.” In more detail, that Republicans hold “beliefs,” while Democrats engage in “reason.” One simple accepts what they’re told or accept from authority figures (which is how Fake News gets its’ foothold); the other asks questions about those assertions and seeks to find supporting evidence before accepting (or rejecting) the premise. In my County, Republicans universally vote the way their TOLD to vote by their “leaders” (in both church and state roles), while Democrats ask questions and verify whether proffered answers–when subjected to confirmation–are truth or lies. IOW, Democrats exhibit the behaviors of “responsible citizens,” while Republicans take the lazy way of simply accepting unverified information–because they trust the source–without seeking verification of any sort.
