So, I can’t help wondering about how we are helping the bastards, I mean the president and his cabal, Trump, that guy win. It’s anger. He’s winning with anger. So how does this math work….
Trump tweets, he holds a rally, he talks, we hear nonsense. What do his supporters hear? A rallying cry. His anger is their base. It’s their common ground.
Trump tweets, holds a rally, we listen. What to we do? We get angry. We post on Facebook. We talk to friends. We march. Hold a pity party. And he gets stronger. So what’s wrong with this math?
Ha! So stop. When Trump tweets, stop the anger. Yeah, the righteous indignation matters. But change the energy exchange. When we march, we tweet, we yell, we don’t change a thing. The energy is lost. So we need to change the math of anger. Instead of yelling back, find a friend to join you in support of Planned Parenthood. Instead of screaming at CNN about an immigration policy, act to change it, help the ACLU and others who are working on change. Rather than rail against Congress, work on a way to change it. My point is that undirected anger lets the bastards win. A plan, directed action effects change.
The choice is yours. Where will your energy go? I know where mine is directed….
