1. Could NOT agree more!

I would even favor a day of a national, general strike.

6. Then we do our jobs of fighting to restore our democracy locally & everywhere-- or die trying.

I bet you didn't know that about democracy, you adorable cynic!

Enjoy your stay!

7. Sounds good. But what does that actually mean?

What exactly are you planning to do to "fight to restore our democracy locally and everywhere?" And do you need to wait for someone else to organize a big march before you do that?

8. yep, that's usually what it takes.

Everyone should check their community and see if there's anything local to join. Or start up a group on your own. There are already people that are doing that right now. Call them up and go where they are going. We don't have to be helpless and victimized as you seem to be implying.

I don't physically take part much, (I'm disabled) but I do what I can. How about you? What's your level of participation? Or do you restrict your activities to sowing despair and division on the chat forums? Just asking.

9. How about a nationwide strike? Everyone stays home for a work day and buys zero.

10. Not to discount the importance of marches, but IMO,

calling & emailing our Members of Congress (MOCs) on a regular basis would have more impact. The media can & does ignore marches. They under/over-report crowd size depending on their agenda. Second to voting, communicating with our Elected Officials is the most important thing we can do. And thanks to digital technology, we can do it quickly, frequently, & with ease!

There should not be a week goes by where We the People don't fill up the voice mail/email boxes of Congress.
