On “Working With” Trump

This blog is a vehicle to express outrage of how far my country has fallen on the humanity gauge. To me it is a useful vehicle for my activism.     Someone posted the following sentiments on Facebook yesterday, and I am re-posting them here, because they precisely express my position at this time:

45ish and his cronies and the majority of the Republicans in congress are a threat to me and my way of life. So I will #RESIST and I will be part of the resistance (and proud of it).

Some people are saying that we should give 45ish 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 treat this President just like he and so many others treated former President Barack Obama for 8 years…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 increase taxes on the middle class and poor.

I will not “work together” to help him line the pockets of himself and his cronies.

I will not “work together” to weaken (or demolish) environmental protection.

I will not “work together” to sell American lands to companies which then despoil those lands.

I will not “work together” to remove civil rights from anyone.

I will not “work together” to waste trillions more on our military when we already have the strongest in the world.

I will not “work together” to alienate countries that have been our allies for as long as I have been alive.

I will not “work together” to slash funding for education.

I will not “work together” to increase the immunity the police already have when they kill people of color (or anyone!) who is unarmed and does not pose any real threat.

I will not “work together” to take basic assistance from people who are at the bottom of the socioeconomic ladder.

I will not “work together” to allow torture and “black op” prison sites.

I will not “work together” to “take their oil.”

I will not “work together” to get rid of common sense regulations on guns.

I will not “work together” to eliminate the minimum wage.

I will not “work together” to suppress scientific research, be it on climate change, fracking, or any other issue where a majority of scientists agree that Trump and his supporters are wrong on the facts.

I will not “work together” to criminalize abortion or restrict health care for women.

I will not “work together” to increase the number of nations that have nuclear weapons.

I will not “work together” to put even more “big money” into politics.

I will not “work together” to violate the Geneva Convention.

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 45ish 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. (Yes, I’ve read those books before.)

I will use my voice and my hands, to reach out to the uninformed, and anyone else who’ll LISTEN. About 45ish, his friends and the Big Lie:That “winning”, “being great again”, “rich” or even “beautiful” is nothing… if no one else is around.
