Many of us prayed for civility and calm during the transfer of Presidential Power. Symbolically with the exception of a disruption by protest of a small group of anarchists, January 20, 2017 inauguration went on as planned.

As we know, on January 21, 2017,  the ‘Women of the United States” spoke out in multiple locations with voices joined to address the importance of “Human Issues.” Women around the world joined in protest with the U.S. Women.  History reveals when women gather in mass -they are birthing change. Committed women  demonstrate when the world  is skewed. Mothers, daughters, grandmothers, aunts, husbands, sons, walk in unity, and shout ‘no more.’ It is wise for all to listen to those who represent the life of force of the earth. Women’s energy changes the  world’s energy.

Utah, one of the most Conservative States in the Union, conducted seven Women’s Marches. They were joined by the men who love women.  Some of the Utah marches endured blizzard conditiona, icy roads, and cold temperatures to join in solidarity with the women of the world.

In fact, we have a state legislature that meets for 45 days. Utah Women, on January 23, 2017, broke the record for the largest demonstration in the history of the state.  More than 6,000 women and those who care about ‘human rights’  marched to the capital on its first day session.

What is driving these women? You tell me. I can’t speak for the millions of my ‘sisters’ who recognize “Human Rights and Needs” are not being addressed. It is time for us to look around and see if you are pleased by your local and Congressional representation.

Elected officials pay attention. Committed women continue communicating to your Congressional Delegation using http://countable.us

BE BOLD. RUN FOR OFFICE. You don’t have to have to jump into a big political office. Try running for school board or county board, etc.

Americans, we can make a difference. Start by communicating with the individuals placed in office to represent you.

Washington, D.C. Update

I cut  and paste the following list from my friend’s Facebook post today. Take two minutes and read what the individuals who represent “We the People” have accomplish in the first week of the 2017 Congress.

A Washington DC  Week in Review:

1. Trump fired all Ambassadors and Special Envoys, ordering them out by inauguration day.

2. House brought back the Holman rule, allowing them to reduce an individual civil service, SES position, or political appointee’s salary to $1, effectively firing them by amendment to any piece of legislation. 

3. Senate schedules 6 simultaneous hearings on cabinet nominees and triple-books those hearings with Trump’s first press conference in months and an ACA budget vote, effectively preventing / limiting any concentrated coverage or protest.

4. House GOP expressly forbids the Congressional Budget Office from reporting or tracking ANY costs related to the repeal of the ACA. It could cost trillions – they refuse to be accountable.

5. Trump continues to throw the intelligence community under the bus to protect Putin, despite the growing mountain of evidence that the Russians deliberately interfered in our election.

6. Trump breaks a central campaign promise to make Mexico pay for the wall by asking Congress (in other words, us, the taxpayers) to pay for it.

7. Trump threatens Toyota over a new plant that was never coming to the U.S. nor will take jobs out of the U.S.

8. House passes the REINS act, giving them veto power over any rules enacted by any federal agency or department–for example, FDA or EPA bans a drug or pesticide, Congress can overrule based on lobbyists not science. Don’t like that endangered species designation, Congress kills it.

          We need to wake up and take careful notice about what is actually happening in our  country. If we don’t agree phone, text, or email your senators and representatives. You also can tweet our President-elect. “We the People” are the government. The people who are in Washington are elected to represent us not to carry out a political agenda. “We the People” need to be vigilant and voice our opinions.  The members of both Houses of Congress are placed in Washington, D.C. to serve all the “People.” Your vigilance plus every citizens voice of approval or disapproval is critical to have true representation in Federal Government.

As this country transitions to its newly elected government, “we the people” need to focus on our representatives in government. Active citizens make a country stronger and show our congressional delegation the direction we desire the country to go. We need to focus on the needs and voice of the people not the political parties’ agenda.

The U.S. ideals, principles, and dignity continues as long as  “we the people” demonstrate how we want  our elected officials to act. We need to raise the bar higher for all politicians. Unbridled, unfounded information both by citizens and congress needs to eliminate. As citizens we need to know what is happening.

The application http://countable.us helps citizens track what your representative is doing in congress. The app is available on iTunes and Google Play. It allows you to respond to your representative from the application. Download it and become active in your government without leaving your chair.

Americans, it is time for us, “the people” to unite and follow the instructions of the Constitution to:

“establish Justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity, “

To need to be vigilant and vocal. We need to let our Congressional delegates know our voice.

As our country accepts a new president in 2017, we, “the people” need to focus on action and accountability.
