Didn't Trump get elected because of the failure of Congress to respond to We the People's needs? Wasn't that his whole populist message? 'They're not listening to you; I'll drain the swamp.' I was really hoping the upshot of all this would be more than scheduled weekly protests/vigils directed at Congress.
Co-optation is already occurring. People’s Action, MoveOn.org, Working Families Party are allied with the Democratic Party in one way or another. Lobbying/protesting your elected officials should be happening (should have been happening all along), but it should not be confused with resistance.
A resistance movement is defined as: "an organized effort by some portion of the civil population of a country to resist the legally established government or an occupying power and to disrupt civil order and stability.
Doing this action is worthwhile because it is one way to make your voice heard; it contributes to a record of events, and provides lessons in citizenship. But expecting that your views will be considered is naive at best. Actual massive unrest in the streets and grinding the gears of government to a halt is the only thing that will force Congress to represent We the People rather than corporations and the moneyed special interests.
