There are 330 million people in the United States. To be honest I never thought Trump would win. But he did and now we have to deal with it. And I mean all of us, whether Republican, Democrat, Independent, Green Party, etc. I classify myself and a moderate Progressive. I live in one of the most Conservative States in the nation, Utah. We are not balanced in this state with Republicans and Democrats. It is an unfair system for everyone in the state.
This state has gerrymandered until basically no one but a republican can win. Therefore half of us are not represented. Everyone needs to be heard. Thats why all the different organizations are popping up protesting and meeting and getting organized. And no, we are not being paid.
I have been to several Indivisible Meetings of which I have to say I am impressed. These folks are from all walks of life. They are Republican, Democrats, etc. They are worried about healthcare, womens issues, immigration and most of all the crazy man in the White House.
Steve Bannon is the scariest one of all. He is a white Nationalist who ran Breitbart. He probably has more influence in the White House than anyone else. This administration tells more lies everyday, well I don’t know what to compare it to. At the CPAC Meeting, Steve Bannon actually said that it is going to be the Deconstruction of the Administration. I know the federal government is not the answer to many things, but letting the states make their own decisions on civil rights, clean air, clean water, education standards, financial protections, Department of Labor, Health and Human Services, EPA and Dept of Education to name only some, cannot be handled by some states. They are just not competant. They may not care about minorities, or education of blacks. There is a reason we have a federal government and this is why. Trump put cabinet members in that would help destroy our way of government.
