Take Action Now!

Unhappy with Trump’s destructive agenda? TAKE ACTION NOW!

This new resource from the Hanover Democratic Committee is designed to help citizens take strategic acts that will protect our Democracy.  Watch for weekly action items here on the HDC webpage, in your inbox and on Facebook. 

Action 3:

Tell Trump and his enablers to go:

Use the Resistbot technology to send letters to all our representatives in Congress asking them to impeach and remove Trump from office and to impeach all members of Congress who challenged the certification of President-elect Biden’s election.

Text IMPEACH to 50409.

Text PZEHUP to 50409 to ask that the members of Congress, including Rob Wittman, who challenged the certification of Biden’s election be impeached.

Action 2:

Hold Wittman accountable:

The horrific events in D.C. last week caused outrage across the world, but TAN readers are particularly dismayed by the complicity of our Congressman Rob Wittman. HDC members have repeatedly asked him to speak out against Trump inciting violence against us. Wittman has refused, even going to great lengths to promote the Big Lie, that there was widespread voter fraud through his signature on a Supreme Court case that, if successful, would have disenfranchised millions of voters, and his Quixotic challenge to other state’s certification of their election results.

In contrast, we were impressed with Senator Mitch Romney’s (R-UT) speech on Wednesday on the Senate floor when he said, “What happened here today was an insurrection, incited by the President of the United States. Those who choose to continue to support his dangerous gambit by objecting to the results of a legitimate, democratic election will forever be seen as being complicit in an unprecedented attack against our democracy. They will be remembered for their role in this shameful episode in American history. That will be their legacy.....The best way we can show respect for the voters who are upset is by telling them the truth. That is the burden and duty of leadership. The truth is that President-elect Biden won this election.” Rob Wittman failed the burden of leadership.

Tell Wittman (202-225-4261, 804-730-6595 or Facebook https://www.facebook.com/RobertJWittman/) we expect him to speak out, as Senator Mitt Romney has done, against Trump’s pattern of inciting violence against political opponents and telling his constituents the truth that the election of Joe Biden was fair and democratic. We should continue to demand his resignation, but there is a more likely route to his removal (see #3).

Action 1:

Savor the victories:

Many TAN readers donated time and resources to help flip the Senate with the victories of Senators-elect Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff of GA. Your efforts paid off and the Biden/Harris appointments and agenda are now more likely to be approved in a Democratically controlled Senate. Despite the horrible events last week in D.C., these wins in GA are huge. Congratulations!
