Trump's election, along with the failure of Democrats to take back control of the Senate, by organizing extremists who blame new immigrants and brown people for their economic problems, has put many people's security at risk. This situation is so dire that we cannot quit in disgust and despair! You want your vision of a progressive America to become reality? We have to continue to organize and educate voters. We are continuing this effort with the development of an innovative new app to educate voters on candidates and progressive issues which you can read about in our newsletter. I need your support to succeed. Please help us to turn back this Trump movement and continue our fight to create a positive progressive populist movement. Please contribute now so we can continue these efforts.
This does not just affect immigrants who have come here without so-called legal status, but those who rely on Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, Obamacare, student grants and loans, public schools, women who rely on Planned Parenthood for health care, any woman who will need or want birth control or abortion services, the LGBTQ community, African Americans, Muslims, Hispanics, working middle-class and poor people, and anyone who will need the protection of the Supreme Court. Have I missed anyone? Probably, so many of us are in danger now; these are our family members, friends, neighbors . . . this is ALL of us.
Key to our voter education effort is a new innovative solution, a comprehensive political app anyone can use to get almost instantaneous information about any candidate’s stand on any issue. You can also get an instantaneous candidate's rating on about 25 progressive issues and an overall rating on progressive values.
Personally, my family's safety is at risk. Here is what happened to my family after the election. My son lives in Philadelphia to help the redistricting campaign in Pennsylvania. After the election of Trump there were several violent occurrences from Trump supporters against brown people. People of brown color were attacked and threatened. Trump inspired gangs were attacking and beating up people at random. My son is terrified for his daughters and his wife because they are brown Cambodian Americans, sometimes mistaken for Hispanics. He is now getting American passports for his two daughters that are American citizens in case they have to leave the country. My six-year-old, my nine month old granddaughters and my daughter-in-law are at risk. These violent extremists are who Trump has provoked and brought out of the woodwork.
I am going to do everything in my power to protect my young grandchildren and my family from these Trump provoked violent gun-toting extremists. Trump has already put my family in danger. It is just going to get worse. The violent acts we have seen after the election are taking place all over the country, and I have even seen reports of these acts near where I live.
Donald Trump ran on a campaign slogan to "Make America Great Again", on policies to bring back manufacturing jobs, to deport immigrants who were committing crimes and taking our jobs, to refuse to let in New immigrants. Generally scapegoating immigrants and foreigners. There was a guy who ran on the same slogan before. His was "Make Germany Great Again". His policies were to bring back manufacturing jobs, to get rid of new immigrants that are taking our jobs. To refuse to let in New immigrants, and to force better deals on trading partners taking advantage of them. This leader was Adolf Hitler. We have to stop history from repeating itself. I never thought this could happen in America.
I want to thank you for your continued generous support. It got a lot of good strong justice-seeking liberal progressive populist's in office. We took two Senate and five Congressional seats from Republicans. We need to do much more. This is the first time since 1929 that Republicans controlled the Presidency, the House, the Senate and the Supreme Court. After this election, the Great Depression happened. Trump is a con man that got into office by manipulating susceptible people through scapegoating minorities, immigrants and foreigners and outright lying. He will certainly lead us into another Great Depression by corrupting our economy.
We have volunteers asking us for help and what to do. We will organize, train them, schedule and get them to meet with new and potential voters. We will rally people to oppose Trump's policies and administration. Your help is urgently needed. Please donate here now.
Thank you for your continued support for fighting for a progressive America.
