[personal profile] executrix has a surprisingly positive point:

all those times we said, why didn't they just stop Hitler? Well, we have a do-over and we can get it right this time!

And all I've been able to do is donate, because my city, county and state are reliably Democratic. I feel even more helpless.

So I have a proposition. Anyone who lives in a red state or red district, I will personally support you in resisting the Republicans. You can make a difference!  I will figuratively hold your hand if you
  • call, email and/or postal mail your Senators & Representative (and I have a private idea about that).
  • help people sign up to vote, most everyone is pro-voting
  • put up a yard or window sign, or a bumper sticker -- scary but even a few people doing that change the dynamic, makes others believe that there is hope. 
  • post on Facebook - doesn't have to be all the time, doesn't have to be liberal screeds, just not Trump/Republicans
  • find a local Democratic group and call/text people for them
  • knock on doors (pre-selected for not committed to Trumpvision). Doing it in the next town or county might be less scary.   This is known to be a huge factor in winning elections
  • talk to friends, neighbors and relatives, gently, providing a progressive view of things. Especially Independents. I will find you some reasonable talking points!  Huge
I will be happy to call you, text you, IM you while you are doing this, I will cheer you on. I will go on Facebook and like your post.  I I will send you gas money if you want to go and knock on doors. I  will do anything to help you resist this literal fascjsm. Please let me?

Note to people in other countries: I will do the same for you, resisting authoritarians everywhere.
