Indivisible: A Practical Guide for Resisting The Trump Agenda – Former Congressional Staffers Reveal Best Practices for Making Congress Listen
At Garn Press we believe we need to know as much as we can about the way the world works – and doesn’t work, what’s happening now and how we can respond to the events that are taking place. It is happening here and now. Once we get over the shock our task is to ask why and then what can we do to change the future, fast approaching. The surging wave of “billionaire populism” will hasten the negative impact of carbon producing human societies on our children and the planet. Understanding this surge requires much greater knowledge than most of us have about how narcissism blinds men of power and privilege to the suffering of the poor, how many people are so susceptible to deception, and how mass-hysteria blinds people to the consequences of the propaganda that is instilled in them. View Indivisible: A Practical Guide for Resisting The Trump Agenda created by former Congressional staffers who reveal best practices for making Congress listen.

Donald Trump is the biggest popular vote loser in history to ever call himself President- Elect. In spite of the fact that he has no mandate, he will attempt to use his congressional majority to reshape America in his own racist, authoritarian, and corrupt image. If progressives are going to stop this, we must stand indivisibly opposed to Trump and the members of Congress (MoCs) who would do his bidding. Together, we have the power to resist — and we have the power to win.
We know this because we’ve seen it before. The authors of this guide are former congressional staffers who witnessed the rise of the Tea Party. We saw these activists take on a popular president with a mandate for change and a supermajority in Congress. We saw them organize locally and convince their own MoCs to reject President Obama’s agenda. Their ideas were wrong, cruel, and tinged with racism — and they won.
We believe that protecting our values, our neighbors, and ourselves will require mounting a similar resistance to the Trump agenda — but a resistance built on the values of inclusion, tolerance, and fairness. Trump is not popular. He does not have a mandate. He does not have large congressional majorities. If a small minority in the Tea Party can stop President Obama, then we the majority can stop a petty tyrant named Trump.
To this end, the following chapters offer a step-by-step guide for individuals, groups, and organizations looking to replicate the Tea Party’s success in getting Congress to listen to a small, vocal, dedicated group of constituents. The guide is intended to be equally useful for stiffening Democratic spines and weakening pro-Trump Republican resolve.
We believe that the next four years depend on Americans across the country standing indivisible against the Trump agenda. We believe that buying into false promises or accepting partial concessions will only further empower Trump to victimize us and our neighbors. We hope that this guide will provide those who share that belief useful tools to make Congress listen.
