Don’t Become Jamaica of the 1970’s, America!
Jamaica has a long history of political violence. In the 1970’s the two political parties had their very own paramilitary divisions. The way to “get” votes was the assassination of their rivals. The insurrection on American government that occurred on January 6, 2021 is just a foreshadowing of politics on that island paradise of Jamaica.
Action: Thank our senators for their vote to convict Mr. Trump and ask them to now use the 14th amendment to prevent him from holding future office.
Script: I am contacting Senator ____ to thank her for voting to convict Mr. Trump and ask that they act now to prevent him from holding office by using the 14th amendment. Mr. Trump should never again be trusted to hold public office and let his mob wreak havoc on our Republic and threaten our citizens and elected officials with death.

Fourteenth Amendment History
Ask Our MoCs to Join Senator Duckworth in Insisting that President Biden Replace the USPS Board of Governors
“Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) on Friday urged President Biden to replace every member on the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) board of governors.
In a letter, Duckworth specifically cited “recent and abject failure of leadership at the top of the USPS,” under Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, a GOP fundraiser who attracted criticism last year after he implemented system wide cost-cutting measures in the months leading up to the 2020 presidential election.”
Duckworth urges Biden to oust entire Postal Service board
Postmaster General DeJoy is continuing his methodical destruction of USPS. DeJoy “is preparing to put all first-class mail onto a single delivery track...a move that would mean slower and more costly delivery for both consumers and commercial mailers. The plan also prevents first-class mail from being shipped by airplane... forcing all of it into trucks and a relay of distribution depots. The operational shifts would coincide with a push for significantly higher postage rates.
“Congressional Democrats are pushing President Biden to overhaul the Postal Service’s leadership by filling the four open seats on the governing board. Such a move would create a majority bloc of Democrats with the votes to unseat DeJoy, if desired. Otherwise, Biden cannot directly intervene in postal operations; mail policy is insulated by law from elected officials to prevent politicians from tinkering with the mail.”
Postmaster general’s new plan for USPS is said to include slower mail and higher prices
Action: Contact our members of congress to request President Biden overhaul the USPS’s leadership.
Script: My name is _______ and I’m a member of Olympia Indivisible. I’m calling to encourage our Senators to insist that President Biden fill the vacancies on the USPS Board of Governors necessary to fire and replace Louis DeJoy with a Postmaster General who believes in the mission of USPS. He should then fire and replace the current remaining Republicans on the board as it is clear by their actions that they are not executing the will of the people in enabling the Post Office to provide us with reliable postal service.
