In the Handmaid's Tale, by the time they declare a state of emergency, it's too late to escape.
If there were a god, Trump and Pence would die of a synchronized heart attack today before the sun sets. But there isn't a god - so evil men prevail upon us because we have allowed ourselves to be played while these same evil men dismantle our republic and use the pieces of it to bludgeon us into cowering submission fretting about "precedent."
We continue to try to work within a system they are tearing apart. These are extraordinary times. It is time for extraordinary measures. We need to leverage what power we have to undo all that the Trump regime has razed. We need to impeach Kavanaugh. We need to bring traitors in Congress to trial. We need to restore Obamacare and build upon it a clear short path to Universal, single payer healthcare.
How to we mobilize? A citizens strike, mass demonstrations at Trump properties, local and state rebellions against ICE storm troopers, coordinated mass demonstrations at our congress persons' offices with a concise set of demands? I don't know.
What I do know is that this wildfire the GOP has started is not going to burn itself out until it destroys us. These true villains need to be contained and controlled. Otherwise they will kill many, put even more children in concentration camps and otherwise oppress a great number with their villany.
