So when does the Democratic Congress and

the rest of us stand our ground for our country. We are there, no doubt about it. Trash the decorum and stand up to the coup! Hopefully the military will back us but we canít just sit still at this point. and wait for the laws to bring us back to sanity. Our democracy has been sold to the highest bidder. Any ideas are welcome. I am feeling desperate and would love a next step.

1. You have apparently not been paying attention

What else, precisely, should Congressional Democrats be doing?

2. Join your local Democratic Party and GOTV

 

If you don't know where to start, visit

We have the power. We need to vote. It's on us.

3. Too bad we all aren't living in DC

and could follow and harass the GOP monsters whenever they go out of their office or home. They did it twice to McConnell and it seems to really bug the poor snowflakes. They should be fearful of going out in public considering their behavior. And it is being CIVIL too. RESIST!

4. Guess I am thinking

beyond the election. We have that going and it is good, BUT Russia figured that with 2016 and they are ready for now. All you have to do is flip the right voting machines. It could easily be a repeat, then we face the big next step.

5. Voting is a key action.

And far too often, progressive voters do not vote with regularity. Unless we can convince people of the absolute necessity to vote, older white conservatives will enjoy influence beyond their numbers.

Welcome to DU.

6. Confused?

 

I'm sorry. What role does the military play in this?

7. You want the military to play a role in changing the Government?

Absolutely not.

Iím reading a lot of ďthe Republicans wonít let us win an election, we have to plan something different. That attitude needs to be stamped out immediately.

8. So, you're calling for a . . .

military coup to counteract a political coup? Really?

No, no and no!

What we need is a Voting Coup, as in winning massively in the November elections. Anything involving the military would be totally counterproductive. As in, destroying any semblance of a Democratic Congress (capital 'D' and lower case 'd') and/or Democratic Republic.

Maybe you're thinking South America. Or Russia.

Btw, The Rule of Law is our ally, not our enemy.

9. Guess you all have hope in our electoral system

I live in CA with the best people you could imagine representing me. I vote, I give money I can afford....letís figure we are beyond voting because it is rigged, I do believe it was rigged for Trump in 2016. What if exit polls donít match the outcome in 2018 like 2016. I feel like they are 15 years ahead of us, how do we keep our democracy when all the rules have been broken. Just saying.

10. There is no Democratic Congress. There is a Republican Congress...and they won't do shit...sadly the

voters gave them the keys to the car...and blaming Democrats is useless...they can't save you or any of us... people decided emails were so so important and didn't vote or voted for princess jill...elections do have consequences. We can yell and scream and the GOP doesn't give a damn. What we can do is kick them out at the midterm...let's have a blue wave big enough to take the House and Congress.
