I don't know if you have been paying attention to the news (it's hard to stomach, I know) but there is a movement afoot to send a tsunami of postcards to Trump on March 15. That's right, the Ides of March. Why? Basically to get our voices heard. To tell Trump that we, who loathe his policies, actions and pretty much every single thing that comes out of the man's mouth, are not paid protesters.From the Ides of Trump website:
Each of us — every protester from every march, each Congress calling citizen, every boycotter, volunteer, donor, and petition signer — will write a single postcard and put them all in the mail on the same day, March 15th, 2017.
No alternative fact or Russian translation will explain away our record-breaking, officially-verifiable, warehouse-filling flood of fury. Hank Aaron currently holds the record for fan mail, having received 900,000 pieces in a year. We’re setting a new record: over a million pieces in a day.
So for the next two weeks, I'm going to let you, Veeptopus nation, download my Trumptopus image as postcards. Print it out on nice card stock. Comes four to a sheet. Write the address to the White House on it:
Donald J. Trump
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500
And then write a brief message to him. Tell him to release his tax records, for instance. Tell him that Steve Bannon has no business being on the NSC. Tell him that no sane adult eats an expensive steak cooked well done with ketchup. (I mean, really.) Or make up your own comment. Write #idesoftrump on it. Or don't. It's fine.
BUT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, DON'T SEND ANYTHING THAT COULD BE CONSTRUED AS A THREAT. BE CIVIL. BE (SOMEWHAT) ADULT. THIS IS ABOUT BEING HEARD NOT ABOUT VIOLENCE.
