We Have To Quit Being Civil & Respectful To These GOP Pricks. They Won't Listen.

If we have to be publicly mean to them to get their their attention so be it. Resistance is not enough. Defiance and political combat will be necessary in the end. Their true agenda is now boldly out in the open. Unless we become combative and challenge them personally they will run over us.

And we have to go after the press to do their job.

Standing by will no longer be possible because they will dismantle the country.

31. I didn't say that outright....

But after a man who had been a friend for nearly 60 years made a crack about liberal tears I responded "that's it we're done." The thing is he never phoned me or emailed so I guess he just doesn't care. When I look back I know that he was always an arrogant prick.

and insult them and challenge them to their faces over these cuts. And we are going to have to force them to answer somehow. We are going to have to harass them with loud ugly peaceful demonstrations. And protesters will have to go to their homes and gated communities. We are going to have to flood their offices with calls letters and protests even if it stops their operations.

Of course they will sic the white supremacist police on the protesters. Be honest many police forces are infiltrated with white supremacists.

We can see the writing on the wall. They are going to proceed with viciousness.

9. Sadly We Are Now In A State Of War. The GOP Has Declared Total War On US.

The Trump budget is a declaration of war on the country as we have known it since FDR. The plan to pillage everything. Look at the cuts and these cuts are just the beginning. We will have no functioning federal government as we know it. Every agency will be underfunded and undermanned and not be able to do business.

Good manners are wasted on the current crowd of trump worshippers---time and again, they use our decent behavior against us. The only thing that registers with that bunch is ugly behavior, shoved right back in their faces. If you don't have the stomach to confront these assholes in a forceful and effective manner, make way for those of us who do.

Leave the slurs at home or post them on DU. I call them Trumpanzees but I would not call one such to their face because it only makes things worse; hardens the shells over their ears.

The propagandized can be reached. But you gotta stop their clocks first, and being rude just throws up barriers.

Trumpanzee: Isn't Trump great? Making America Great Again!

Us: Nope.

Tee: He's doing everything he promised!

Us: Nope.

Tee: What do you mean? He got us tax cuts!

Us: Only for this year. You'll pay more tax down the road to fund the billionaires tax cut. It's already baked into the legislation. And your children will pay and pay for the Trump deficit.

Tee: He's booming the economy!

Us: Nope. Stock market and jobs are both growing at a slower rate than during the Obama years.

Tee: Really?

-- now we're getting through, by being civil --

44. Been there. Done that. Where your suggested exchange between Us and the

Trumpanzee goes astray is right at the end. No Trumpster I 've ever dealt with---and I live in a nest of them---would ever admit to any doubt whatsoever that Trump had kept "100%" of his promises, is the victim of an unprecedented "witch hunt" regarding the "fake news" Russia investigation and is the very very best president in the history of the world.

Where your Trumpanzee asks "Really?"the ones I've encountered would say "That's just like a Libtard to repeat fake news to smear our President! Why don't you and Obama go back to Kenya where he was born? You voted for that Clinton b__ch, too, didn't you? Get out of here with your education and your communist filth!"

Your options, at this point, include 1.) walk away, 2.) stand there and continue to get verbally abused and sprayed with spit, or, 3.) knock them on there ass WHEN, not if, they start to move in, interpreting your silence (civility) for weakness.

So far, I've managed to walk away.

19. Go after press and politicians. But all voters are Americans

We have to be careful to distinguish between the 10% of America that are deplorable racists,
And the 20% of America that still support Trump because they have been brainwashed by GOP billionaire-funded propaganda.

We need to convert that 20%. And we’ll only do it by remembering that they’re Americans too.

They can go low & lie & commit election fraud ... & if we just "go high?" If we DON'T counter their lies & attacks with the truth, we will lose.

Www.whitehouse.gov/contact/

I email them every single day, even if it just says RESIGN!

I email my Republican. Rep. Every week.

I am polite because that is the way I want to be treated. You can be just as devastating with the truth. Personally, I think using really offensive language and name calling is ineffective and rarely give in to it. I have found it never changes anybody's mind and gives that person an excuse to dismiss the criticism.

I will use "shithole" with an asterisk and attribute it to Trump!
