Why Opposing Donald Trump And The Republicans' Far-Right Wing Is The Easy Part For The Next 4 Years

For all the stories we're hearing in the news how it'll be end times when Donald Trump becomes our 45th President on Friday, the last thing we should do is panic. The fact is that opposing Trump and the GOP's far-right wing is not the hard part of getting by the next 4 years, that surprisingly is the easy part. There's going to be an overreach by the Republicans, and that may happen sooner rather than later. To prepare our opposition we need to organize and continue to press the point that what they're planning to do will actually do more harm than good. Plus we'll have the majority of the people on our side. However, this can only work if the Democrats ditch their corporate-wing, which has been helping the Republicans accelerate the ongoing race to the bottom.

Prying control of the party from the corporate-wing is the hard part, and without doing this, we can't start the process of reversing the worsening effects of social and economic inequality. Those effects are what's driving the power of the far-right, and its quick fixation on scapegoats as a way of directing the people's attention elsewhere. We can't tackle the issue of racial division without simultaneously tackling the issue of class inequality. If we don't resolve both issues at the same time, we're likely to see political figures even more extreme than Trump is possibly entering the presidency.
