What to Do Now?
I have a few strategies for dealing with the President-elect. Why do I oppose him? He is a Chickenhawk. I am a veteran and don’t think much of people who dodge the draft and want to send our servicemen into combat.
If he requires all Muslims in the U. S. to register, I plan to register and encourage everyone I know to do so. If millions of Americans do so, the registry will be useless. What will they do, deport me to Kansas? I think all religions are proper for people, so I won’t have any conflict with registering as a Muslim.
The next plan I have is to be more active in organizations I support. I am an environmentalist, so the Nature Conservancy, Clean Water Action, and the Environmental Defense Fund will have a new volunteer. I think taking positive action with organizations is a better strategy than blind opposition.
I am a Democrat, so I am debating becoming active in the Democratic Party. Years ago I attended some meetings and wasn’t enchanted by the whole thing, so, maybe.
I write, and will continue to do so. I do not intend to go into attack mode. I don’t think negativity is the proper course for my writing. I may try to promote some of my writing. Mr. Trump uses negativity as his main strategy, so my response will to be positive about promoting positive action in our weakened republic. I will support good causes and good people.
