Is there a national tipping point? Do you have one?

What would it take for the left and center to rise up and start disrupting the country?
Boycotts, blockades, sit-ins, daily marches on DC and state capitals.

Is it the firing of Mueller or Rosenstein?
Is it the permanent kidnapping or some reported deaths of children taken from parents?

What will make enough truly be enough?

6. Like where they kept the terrorists...places that nobody knows about, no one knows what goes

 

on in there and there is NO ACCESS. We already have no access now...can you imagine when they shudder all the people and children away.

RUMP himself belongs in there since he is a TERRORIST...inflicting fear and terror on others for political gain. That is the definition.

5. We're well past tipping point. We just need one effective way of protesting.

Anything could be the straw that broke the camel's back. Really a majority are well past that point.

We just need that one kid to say the emperor has no clothes.

It's not like we don't know, it's that we don't know how to get airtime with protests.

11. I don't see it yet.

I still see a lot of the both sides do it garbage.
The we must play nice and go high still rules the day especially on corporate media (even left leaning media).
Hes not quite outrageous enough yet.
I think that 60% of the country is counting on Mueller to be our savior.

Most people will not disrupt their own comfortable lives ......YET.......

14. We need more pics and vids, that's more truthful than whatever rhetoric we can put out but

... we should also hyper focus on where the babies and the little girls are.

This is not only a highly moral issue, its the right issue at the right time and winning politically

to say he has no clothes, but then the media never can get a accurate number of demonstrators cause that department has been curtailed or not needed, or are they afraid to get the true numbers that attend these protests.

8. We have been asking that for two years.

If we don't start up'ing the game a bit...we are all going to go down. Whether we like it or not....into everyones life, a little rain shall fall. It's getting to be a subtle war footing, and that's what they have brought us to. if we don't respond in kind...we are going down. It's our chance to lock arms...and get about the tough business of it.

9. Well the torturing and drugging of children is getting close to me.

Add the firing of Mueller and Rosenstein, and deaths of the kids in these camps, and I would say we have war.

10. Way way past my own but media loss, big market crash run out of beer . The center is just

that, so it rarely disrupts . sad to say & just my opinion
but those resisting can at least influence the center crowd to agree with them if not act with them
Not that easy to do either or for them to care

Im talking about....
Im talking change your life rage.....which comes at a personal cost of loss of money, jobs, friends, family......Im talking all out civil disobedience (non violent).....things most of us have never done or considered....not, just the occasional run of the mill march and generic speeches.

They are bigots and sexists and xenophobes that wrap themselves in flags and bibles.
They can not be reasoned with.

Trump is actively trying to induce either recession or second great depression. Thats how the wealth is transferred to the top.

21. only great depression; millions losing jobs

apathy is unbeleivable. Most people around me are not at all interested in politics, avoid news but I live in a bubble. Still I think other regions are even less politically involved than SF. I gurantee you if I tune out and cut off all news for 6 months I wont notice a thing. I know that because I did it a year ago - it was the happiest time. People are sick of politics and may even avoid polling places in november.

34. This, nothing short of an economic implosion will bring unity

Where would these protests and sit-ins occur? Where are the places that would be shut down? In cities. In very blue districts. All our outrage happens in places where we are preaching to the choir.

To make something big happen we would need to get Middle America to turn on their masters. That won't be easy to do as they are segregated from us geographically and socially. The Trump/Republican core gets their news from Fox and is 50+ miles from the nearest protest. Their social circles are just as insulated. It's easy for them to ignore what little daylight peeks through as the economy in rural areas is picking up after a long period of stagnation.

It would have to hit their daily lives to wake them up. The only thing I can imagine hitting that many all at once in a negative enough way is another great depression.

I have more power now than I ever had in the 60's. Get enough old ladies to go have a seat with Congressman John Lewis we could shut down anything.

27. If they came for my family, house or job

I'll be honest, I won't fight for anything until it hits me directly. I'll try to profit off any situation or steer clear if I can.

My tipping point is when it's already too late to do something.

I'll keep voting and donating, but not personally fighting or being outspoken.

28. I'm past my point.

One of the things I do for work is drug screens for DOT and Federal employees.
I told my office manager the other day if I thought I could get away with it and it not cost HER anything, I wouldn't so much as answer the phone for them until every single one of those kids were put back into the arms of their parents where they belong. Fuck this government.

And I'm very very close to NOT caring WHAT it might cost her. Just sayin.

We might be seeing it. Beth McDonalf, radio personality in PHX, just said 20 min ago that Congress will gut SS, Medicare and Medicaid in July to pay for tax cuts to the wealthy.

It would take an attempted postponing of an election or for it to become clear to the masses that their vote does not count.

...and only a slight amount of chill for people who acknowledge their vote for Trump was a mistake.
