While many rightly deplore the current U.S. political leadership, it's really kind of exciting to live in these times. We're witnessing each day a movement that continues to grow against Trump, one that crosses traditional political boundaries.
For instance, several key Republican senators have backed off from doing away with the ACA entirely. Why? Not because they suddenly saw the light that the act helps millions obtain needed health coverage. But because constituents are demanding they keep the act intact, while making a few revisions. Town hall meetings in a lot of Republican congressional districts have resembled World Wrestling events, with some cowardly representatives ducking out of the meetings, rather than taking the heat.
Another interesting development is the growth of groups that have formed to resist Trump. I counted at least 50 new ones that have cropped up since last November, especially if you count Facebook groups, which largely operate online. If you are on Twitter, check out Trump Regrets, tweets from former supporters who rethink their approval.
Of course, progressive news sites like OpEdNews have long been in the forefront of not just the current resistance movement to authoritarianism, but the progressive movement in general. This site, among others, deserve many props.
The following are some of the more interesting newer Trump resistance sites and groups [I list a lot more in my new book, Not Our President, available on Amazon]:
