The lesson Democrats should learn from Russia is that traditional warfare kills people, but cyber warfare changes governments.We will not allow Republicans voters to hide behind their elected officials without inflicting pain on their economy. In 2017, pain is a two-way street.

Fellow New Yorkers and Progressives Organizations,
We all watched in amazement as the Women's Movement took root and expressed a growing anger at President Trump’s policies and positions thru protest marches across the country and globe.
But marching is not enough.
Now is the time for a new political and economic battle plan. Political activism is always needed, but this administration only speaks cash. So the resistance needs economic activism as well.
New York City is getting pummeled by Trump’s travel ban and other policies that are keeping international visitors away. We’ve lost $600 million tourism dollars to date. Instead of pouring millions into travel marketing campaigns (and the pockets of agency execs), Mayor De Blasio and Governor Cuomo should be fighting the root of the problem.
That’s where we come in.
We are a group of historians and social tourism activists launching our “Feel the Pain, Boy” (https://www.feelthepainboy.com/) resistance, reparations and travel movement. Our goal is to harness the power of the Women's Movement—which we believe is simmering and highly combustible—to acquire political and economic power. We’ll form the Tip Political Party and disrupt the 100+ billion dollar shared economy and travel economy with the creation of TipBnb, TipCar and TipTours, which as a family will be known as TipNation.
We formed TipNation and the Tip Political Party as the Democratic answer to the Tea Party. The Tip in our name stands for Travel in Peace, which is exactly what we all want to be able to do—travel in our daily lives and around the world without fearing for our safely, without barriers, without worrying about being a woman or a person of color or LGBTQ. Trump won’t allow for that, so we need a change.
Our political strategy is simple: Embrace Bernie Sanders’ policies and mobilize the estimated 10 million disenfranchised Berniecrats. We strive to legalize cannabis, rewrite the 13th amendment, eradicate private prisons and make the United State truly a more just place for all.
Democrats must run with fresh, paradigm-shifting progressive ideas—not to energize the base, but to turn red states blue. Travel is a powerful tool to bring people together and allow them to experience worlds outside their own. We envision a world where one day New Yorkers visit coal mines in West Virginia and those two groups coming together over that shared experience. But we can only make that vision a reality by first going to war.
We recognize that the Red States voted to reignite the Civil War. And we are prepared to fight back. As in any war, we are looking for like minded progressives to join us. The lesson Democrats should learn from Russia is that traditional warfare kills people, but cyber warfare changes governments.
Please follow us on social (@FeelThePainBoy), so we can stay in touch. Our immediate goal is to have as many progressives join the movement organically. We've prepared banners and written content that we hope you’ll share to help us spread this vital message.
Our first action is to declare war in the form of a Travel Boycott on the thirteen original Confederate states and redirect millions of tourists to New York and other progressive places. We declare war on those whose economic privilege is deeply rooted in and build upon generational slavery and who make no effort to extend that privilege to those to whom it's owed. The thirteen original slave-holding confederate states must atone for their treason and their sins against humanity. We will not allow Republicans voters to hide behind their elected officials without inflicting pain on their economy. In 2017, pain is a two-way street.
Before NYC’s $600 million in lost tourism turns into $2.2 billion or more, we need to join together to save our industry—and our city. TipNation can be a perpetual revenue stream for this city. And we all know how desperately that’s needed.
Our initial business strategy is to focus on two specific groups. We’ll attract women—who make 82% of all travel related decisions—with WomenUnitedbnb and introduce Demsbnb and Dem’s Adventures to the country’s over 77 million Democrats. WorldPeaceBNB will connect ordinary citizens around the world who understand we must all unite today to inspire world peace and fight Trumpism by actively supporting our travel boycott. We can no longer wait years for governments to step in. It took the entire world to stop the Holocaust and South African Apartheid. And now we need that global help again.
The founding fathers stacked the decked against many of us. However, there was no way for them to know that the Internet age would unravel their perfect union. Let's not walk or run—let's race to become the party of the future. Come together to form a counterpoint to the Tea Party. This will be a place for all of us who feel like the mainstream Democratic Party is not listening to us or pushing hard enough for continued progress on social issues When we are a billion strong, we'll be able to tell our children, “We did it for you.”
Join our fight today and share in the political and economic spoils of victory. You can learn more about our movement at TipNation.org (https://www.feelthepainboy.com/). If you’re interested in becoming a founding member, just shoot us an email at
Tipnation is our platform for building, managing and growing shared economy communities that support our mission to travel in peace. In these communities around the world, we’re creating political action committees and finding candidates to fight anti-BnB and anti-tourism legislation. We’re also providing economic opportunity through Tipbnb, Tipcar and Tiptours. Each community will have hosts and tour guides to effectively manage each destination, strengthen our brand and support small locally owned businesses, including independently owned hotels (via Tiphotel).
The BnB Liberation Movement seeks to disrupt both travel and politics by redirecting travel dollars away from areas that oppress us, but instead towards destinations that support peace, freedom, and equity.
Again thank you for joining! If any time you spot an enemy troll in our midst, please report them to us immediately, and we'll remove them from the meetup or any social media channel.
We invite you to visit Tipnationshop.com (http://www.tipnationshop.com) to find your tribe's gear.
Travel in peace,
Your Social Tourism Activists
