Stand with Nancy and Protect the DREAMers

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to thank [the MoC] for standing with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and insisting on the guarantee of a House floor vote on legislation to protect the DREAMers before Democrats vote for the Senate budget proposal.

Trump cancelled the DACA program, effective March 5th, to use the lives of people who were brought to the US as children as a bargaining chip for his racist immigration policies. The simple truth, though, is that Americans overwhelmingly want the DREAMers to stay. There are ample, bipartisan votes in the House to pass legislation that give them a path to citizenship, but Paul Ryan won’t let legislation come up for debate because he insists on the “Hastert Rule”, which requires a majority of the majority to agree to any legislation. Americans want bipartisan solutions but the Hastert Rule is designed to prevent them.

Thank you for standing with Nancy in her fight for the DREAMers!

Defend the FBI and the Rule of Law

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to continue to assail the Republican Party for attacking the rule of law and the institutions, such as law enforcement and the FBI, that support it.

Respect for the rule of law is a cornerstone of our democracy. We now have a president, apparently criminal, who is doing everything in his power to destroy it, leaving only himself as the source of power. This is beyond the tyranny even our Revolutionary forebears sought to escape. The Republican Party has joined his effort wholeheartedly – so much so that even conservatives are calling for the party’s demise. Our nation is in peril.

Patrick Henry and Thomas Paine rose to the occasion in their time. I’m calling on [the MoC] to do the same in ours. Our nation is in danger. Fight!

No “Treason”, No Parade:  No Dictators

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to urge [the MoC] to say “no” to our Mussolini-wannabe, Donald Trump.

It’s not “treason” not to clap for an idiot who never tells the truth. It’s not American to hold military parades á la Nuremberg or Red Square. It’s not democratic to demand “loyalty” from law enforcement officials. All are examples of despotism, the very thing this country was founded upon escaping.

I’m calling on [my MoC] to call out this despot on every authoritarian, unAmerican thing he does. For all of us.

Background:

No Offshore Drilling

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to thank [the MoC] for opposing the Trump regime order opening up US coasts to offshore drilling.

Even Trump doesn’t want offshore drilling – near his property. But he’s happy to inflict it on others, to endanger the oceans and increase global warming. No deal. The US coasts, including California’s, must not be given over to oil exploration.

Thank you for fighting for us!

Censure Devin Nunes

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask Representative [Huffman/Thompson] to call for the censure of Representative Devin Nunes.

Nunes has abandoned all pretense of fulfilling his duty to oversee the executive branch, instead becoming, in the words of his hometown paper, a “stooge for Trump”. And, one might add, for Russia. He is becoming a laughingstock, but it’s no laughing matter. His actions actively undermine trust in our institutions and in the rule of law. He should be censured.

Will Representative [Huffman/Thompson] push for Nunes’s censure?
