I will not forget how badly Donald Trump and so many others treated former President Barack Obama

Claudia Silver

Although I did not compose this on my own, I add my name because THIS is where I stand. Period.
I make no apologies to any or all of my FB friends for this. I know some of you choose to be tired of political postings and rants, but I think it is irresponsible and dangerous to ignore what has happened to America.
Beyond the cutesy posts of recipes, flowers, seashells, balloons, and drama, FB is a vehicle to express my outrage of how far the USA has fallen on the humanity scale. To me it is a useful vehicle for my activism. That fevered ego in the White House and all of his power hungry cronies and the majority of the Republicans in congress are a threat to me and to my way of life, and unless you are worth tens of billions of dollars, it is a threat to you, too. So I will resist and I will be part of the resistance (and proud of it). As I have said before, if you can join in or hang with it fine. If not then you probably need to unfriend me now. I won’t play nice. The USA and the world’s well-being demand it.
Some people are saying that we should give Donald Trump a chance, that we should “work together” with him because he won the election and he is everyone’s president.
This is my response:
•I will not forget how badly he and so many others treated former President Barack Obama for 8 years…
*I will not work together to cut Medicare or Medicaid.
*I will not work together to cut S.S.
*I will not work together to cut food stamps, heat assistance, housing assistance or any other program that helps the poor, elderly or disabled, in favor of more tax cuts for the rich.
•I will not “work together” to build a wall.
•I will not “work together” to persecute Muslims.
•I will not “work together” to shut out refugees from countries where we destabilized their governments, no matter how bad they might have been, so that we could have something more agreeable to our oligarchy.
•I will not “work together” to lower taxes on the 1%.

•I will not “work together” to give the Ku Klux Klan, the Nazi Party and white supremacists a seat at the table, or to normalize their hatred.
•I will not “work together” to deny health care to people who need it.
•I will not “work together” to increase the profits of the insurance companies.
•I will not “work together” to deny medical coverage to people on the basis of an alleged or actual “pre-existing condition.”
•I will not “work together” to increase voter suppression.
•I will not “work together” to normalize tyranny.
•I will not “work together” with anyone who is, or admires, tyrants and dictators.
•I will not “work together” with Donald Trump or anyone who supports him, because I will not allow one man to feed upon the fears of the populace, blaming minorities for their condition or their inability to thrive.
•I will use my voice and my hands, to reach out to the uninformed, and to anyone else who’ll LISTEN about Donald Trump, his friends and the Big Lie:
That “winning”, “being great again”, “rich” or even “beautiful” is nothing… if no one else is around.
PS: If you agree, please copy and re-post (I understand that results in larger numbers of people seeing a post), and if you can, sign your name below mine. Also, if I have left anything out, feel free to add it to this list.
This is the first step in becoming part of The Resistance.
