This is a great thread except it blows one HUGE point in making Trump personally the antagonist. There is a myth right now in America that getting rid of Trump will get rid of these problems. It won't - because these are not really his own ideas
1/
Recall an interview long ago with Larry King where he spoke of taking care of people. King said, 'universal healthcare?' and Trump agreed.
2/
And I'm not trying to paint Trump the saint - hell no, he is evil incarnate. But I am saying that he really doesn't have much interest in these things. Does anyone seriously conjure images of him up nights working out "health reform"?
3/
These ideas, and all of ink required to paper them for his signing come from the house and senate GOP and to them from special interests (#KochNetwork, Sheldon Adelson and more). I hear their lobbyists even write a significant amount of legislation - ready to sponsor & sign.
4/
Trump must be highlighted in his own right, I agree, and we need to be rid of him - he is dangerous to America in many ways all on his own.
5/
But this narrative of scooting everything into the immorality or stupidity of Trump is damaging us - fracturing us - misguiding us. It turns all eyes away from the true source of the problem and sets all hearts aglow at the idea of being rid of Trump.
6/
Even the key members of the GOP, at both federal and state levels, are not much in control of their donor owners. They're selected because they'll carry out the wishes of their donors, like bulldogs drawing blood at their owner's yells of "kill!"

Unit this is properly addressed - we are on a crash course with economic devastation, tyranny, war and a rewrite of our very constitution. 1 of 2 posts on this in some depth. First - proof of concept from a trusted source --

Secondly a more in depth look at the problem from someone working very hard to educate people on the issue (as are many) Ali Adair @AliAdair22

Next, for those who find it unbelievable that Trump is NOT behind many issues he pushes -- for a solid week after Trump's talk of moving the Israeli embassy, I heard nothing but what an idiot he was and how he knew nothing about history.
10/
The true narrative --
"Trump met with the party’s most prominent donor, Las Vegas casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, who has privately expressed frustration that the president hasn't moved the U.S. Embassy in Israel [...] to Jerusalem."

We need, BADLY, for our brightest, most diligent people - people such as yourself, to address the real narrative. I cannot even come up with enough words to express how badly.
12/
Because calling out Trump on his actions, potentially leading to his removal, does NOTHING to eliminate these problems. If anything it gives #ALEC and the #Kochs more time.

Time to swoop in from the side like heros out to save a democracy by introducing a "Balanced Budget Amendment" that overrides 'those corrupt DC politicians - go right over their heads and allows #WeThePeople to set things right!'
14/
And along with their hundreds of thousands of astroturf promoters they win the people over with a resounding "YES!", then delegates are selected and the seemingly well intended Convention of States goes runaway and we end up with a Koch Constitution.
15/
And all of your most critical points pale to what they might actually do.
16/
The convention that led to our current constitution was written by the well intended and even they did so in private and modified the ratification process in-situ (something proponents of a #COS/#ConCon claim cannot happen).
17/
And it's not at all unthinkable that we might even end up with a monarchy.
18/
Please consider the importance of the narrative and that it be accurate. Else we may be doomed to 'life as usual' should we
rid ourselves of Trump and then go back to life as usual assuming all is well.

Removing a cancerous tumor is frequently not the cure for the cancer, and mistaking or broadcasting it as such - a death sentence.
