I'd like to suggest "SURGE UPWARD" as a name for our Resistance Movement

And to recommend that you examine the excellent post by IamFortunesFool - which precedes this one - and thoughtfully examines this question in detail.

1. I think the term bourne out of the emotions of the protests is always naturally the best. RESIST.

 

We are fighting animals here. Cute jingles just won't cut it. RESIST. !!!!!! Surge Upward sounds like something Tinker Bell Trump does in private and not a name that captures the emotion of a serious movement. LOL

2. OK - Just trying to be creative and use something simple and easy to remember.

But I have to admit that your response is pretty entertaining.

3. I'm going to stick with "RESIST." because it perfectly captures the way I feel.

5. I prefer the simple "resistance", with a small 'r'. IMO, we don't need branding.

It's a movement for the commoner.

6. You do realize there is a reason businesses and Republicans spend billions annually on branding...

Branding and marketing are more important than the actual product in most cases. Shitty products with great names make people rich all the time. Great products with shitty names or slogans never see the light of day.

Resist is weak language, folks. We can, and must come up with something to combat and defeat the "Tea Party" and "Moral Majority"... Not just "resist".

19. My Original Reasoning

A SURGE is a burst of POWER. Every day we start anew - we intend to bring that power to bear on Trump and the Republicans.

UPWARD indicates that we want to go in the opposite direction from the retrograde, backward, negative policies of the right wing extremists who are now dragging our nation down. Their political attitude is destructive of our country and our friendly relationships with Europe, Australia, Mexico, and who knows who else, by the time they're finished. Their policies are divisive and filled with anger. Ours are inclusive and based on mutual respect. I could go on and on, but I think I've made my point. So, SURGE UPWARD kind of says it for me. But I can certainly accept that other folks have a different perception. - Dave

15. I was thinking that too! I like "All In" too but too overdone these days.

All In-clusive
All In-volved
Dedicated.

See this thread for a discussion of the importance of a name and why "Resist" is weak
