Recall the GOP - drag them out of office NOW

We don't have time to fuck about.  The GOP control has hit a critical mass, especially at the state level.  Just a few more GOP Governors and they can force a Constitutional Congress and re-write the goddamn Constitution against the will of the people.

"Recall is a procedure that allows citizens to remove and replace a public official before the end of a term of office. Historically, recall has been used most frequently at the local level. By some estimates, three-fourths of recall elections are at the city council or school board level. This brief, however, focuses on the recall only as it applies to state officials."

Nineteen (19) states, plus the District of Columbia allow recall of state officials.  This happened in Wisconsin in 2011, when voters replaced two (2) of Scott Walkers state Senate cronies with more reasonable people.  The GOP likes to say "Haha, you failed, because you only displaced two of the six you tried to displace!"  Yeah, well, the key element there:  the GOP lost two seats, because the voters said "Fuck this shit! We're recalling your fucking asses!"

We - the sane voting public - may be not be able to recall the President directly, but if we get grassroots recalls all over the damn country, and the GOP start losing seats at state and local levels - even just a few seats - then the rest of the GOP - for example, in the US Congress and US Senate - will start to take notice that the sane voters are fed up with this shit and want their country back from the "alt-right" fascist #NuclearCheeto fringe who have taken over the government.
