"Trump's flurry of executive orders and pronouncements is a reminder of the urgency of forming committees in every congressional district - in most instances under the canopy of the Democratic Party - to begin preparations for next year's elections at the national and state levels. Things like candidate selection, voter registration, protection, and education, listening meetings, etc. need immediate attention. To me this is a strategic priority if we hope to stall the Trump-Republican offensive. It doesn't preclude others forms of resistance. It complements them. Moreover, without this dimension of struggle everything else will limp."--Sam Webb
