What You’ll Find Here
Times of Resistance is an academic blog that explains what Trump is doing here in Washington. You’ll gain a basic understanding, but I also help readers find out where to go if they want more details.
I want to inform. I also feel there’s a real need to untangle the issues so we feel more confident we actually know what’s going on!
I explain the effects of Trump’s actions, what WE can do about it, and most of all, remind people that we have power and that we can slow him down and even stop him.
I want to educate, support, and provide a jumping off point for people who are just starting to learn about these really important issues. Once you feel you’ve wrapped your head around how crazy things are, I’ll help you find out where to go for more details.
Everything I write about is available from the menu on my homepage, but some content is sent directly to followers. My first impressions, special reports, and odds and ends will be available on my website immediately. My essays take longer to read and are available in a daily series only to my followers, as are some of my reflections and theories about the current state of affairs. Subscribe here or simply hit the follow button to read my work as soon as I write it. When I’ve finished one of my longer works, I’ll publish it on the homepage. Until then, follow along in your inbox.
I created Times of Resistance to make sure that we never forget how good things were before Trump changed everything. Not everything is bad, only about 99% of it.
Just like everything else in life, some days will be really hard. It’ll be tempting to accept things as normal, to lower your standards so that you can actually feel good about what’s going on. However, you need to always remember that Trump is NOT NORMAL.
In 2020, we want to vote for someone who isn’t just better than Trump but WAY better than Trump and maybe even better than we’ve ever had!
There’s gonna be a day when someone who cares actually asks us what we want, when we have a chance to vote for someone who’s going to pay attention to us, and I don’t ever want to think that’s a fantasy.
For me, writing it all down allows me to remember the way things used to be. If I ever have trouble remembering, I’ll have something to refer to.
I hope you enjoy Times of Resistance. Please remember that you are worth it, your voice matters, and that you are stronger than you think.
