Fed up?

Trump tried to use the power of his office to force Ukraine to do him a political favor and then tried to cover it up and completely stonewalled Congress in its impeachment proceedings. Yet in the so-called “trial,” the Republican Senators refused to allow documents to be subpoenaed or witnesses to be called and then voted almost unanimously to acquit him of both charges. Now, Trump is attacking and denigrating everyone who accused him and firing the members of his own administration who testified before Congress. Once again, he is lying about his actions, saying he did nothing wrong, and claiming he was a victim of a partisan witch hunt. Why are we not surprised?

As of last December, the Washington Post reported that Donald Trump had made 15,413 false or misleading statements during his time as President. And that was before his outrageously inaccurate and self-promoting State of the Union address. See https://www.factcheck.org/2020/02/factchecking-the-state-of-the-union-3/ for a summary of all his false claims.

Angry? Tired of the lies? Fed up with the blatant corruption? Want to get involved, but don’t know what you can do?

As Tip O’Neil famously said, “All politics is local.” So if you live in Travis County Democratic Precinct 354, there is a group of equally fed-up Democratic activists who have managed to turn this once-red precinct blue, starting in 2008. It has been blue ever since and they are working hard to keep it that way. If you would like to know more and how you can get involved, send an email to info@354democrats.org.
