If there is a Blue Wave, will you rest while hoping the Trump/Pence regime will be driven out by the Democrats and all will take care of itself? If there is no Blue Wave, will you be demoralized, run back home depressed, and literally let fascism consolidate? Blue Wave or not, Democratic leadership such as Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are already refusing to impeach the Trump/Pence regime. Blue Wave or not, We the People have nothing to lose. Voting is not alway the most powerful form of democratic expression or disapproval. The Civil Rights movement did not happen in a voting booth. The Vietnam war did not end in a voting booth. Spiro Agnew’s and Richard Nixon’s resignation did not happen in a voting booth.

The removal of the Trump/Pence regime will not happen in a voting booth either. South Korea, Armenia, and Slovakia are recent historical evidence of how successful a mass protest can be in driving out unpopular corrupt leadership as they drove out their own presidents from power. The people in those countries obviously studied a certain amount of American history in regards to what a mass protest can do.

Why have we forgotten our history? Join us the day after the elections on November 7th no matter what results are. History teaches us that fascists don’t play by the rule book. Our means cannot be traditional either. As South Korea, Armenia, and Slovakia learned from our history books, let’s now learn from their recent chapters in history and add some new pages to ours.
