    I really like the way you’ve shown how broad-encompassing the mantle of “responsibility” really is. I think it’s important to look at the big picture and how all of these different spheres of responsibility – fiscal, social, environmental, etc – don’t necessarily have to be opposing interests. It necessitates a Socratic approach, not an absolutist/ideological one.

    In hindsight, reading this on 1/26/17, I can’t help but feel this was incredibly naive.

    I agree vehemently with our party’s guiding principles of respect, cooperation, fact-based consensus, etc. This new administration does not, and makes no efforts to hide its contempt for actions and philosophies that we as Whigs hold paramount.

    I would go so far as to say that not only do I agree with Brandon’s sentiment below, but in my opinion, should we do anything less, we would be betraying the values we hold dear.

    As long as Trump continues to govern in a manner inconsistent with our ideals, i believe our only option is to respectfully (where applicable, there’s an argument to be made that you can respect the Office without respecting the man) and legally resist him and those that ascribe to his political philosophy with every ounce of conviction we can muster.

    I’ve heard for years from friends that I’ve tried to recruit that we Whigs aren’t firm on anything – I suggest that opposing this unfit and uncouth President be our line in the sand.
