July 3: Democracy Wants You!

The Daily Countable: Take Action Today!

MONDAY, JULY 3, 2017

It’s Monday again, CountaRevelers!

Congress is on their July 4th recess, which means they are likely in a town near you. You know what’s super patriotic? Communicating with your representatives in government! Some reps will be hitting the streets in honor of Independence Day while some may be avoiding the spotlight, but that shouldn’t stop you. If they don’t come out to play then there are lots of ways to voice your opinions to them.

Do your patriotic duty, friends. Reach out to your reps this week. Participatory democracy needs you.

The President: Bedminster, NJ

  • The president is still at his golf club in New Jersey, tweeting his hatred of the mainstream new media, though he did pause long enough to mention veterans and a few foreign countries this morning. What he hasn’t mentioned? Policy. I’m not the only one who’s noticed.

The House of Representatives: OUT OF SESSION

  • The House is on July 4th recess. Find them in a town near you!

The Senate: OUT OF SESSION

  • The Senate is also on July 4th recess. Find them in a town near you!

What to Watch

  • Fireworks. Those of us in smaller towns know that fireworks are cheaper for municipalities when they’re not actually on July 4th, so there’s likely a show near you today! Enjoy!

  • But if you’re shooting off fireworks yourself, be safe, okay? Trips to the hospital are not a good way to celebrate the 4th. We need to you at your best to participate in democracy.

Have fun, CountaPatriots!
