Post-election message

Like many folks around here, I've been rather despondent since the election results came in. Now that it looks like Bush will be back in the White House for the next four years, the half of the electorate who did NOT vote for that man has two big tasks over the next four years.
1. massive resistance. We may not be able to stop Bush and Co.'s plans to wage unnecessary wars in the interest of remaking the world in their own image, or their plans to shelve Americans' civil liberties, but we sure can slow them down, if enough people show their opposition.
2. organizing to remove Republicans in office in 2006 and 2008. There's been a lot of talk recently about how the Republicans won it on the basis of "moral values." What's that you say? There are some BIG moral issues out there right now? Torture is a moral issue? Disregard for the lives of innocent civilians in wartime is a moral issue? Honesty is a moral issue? The use of dishonorable tactics to disenfranchise voters is a moral issue? Damn straight.

Still feeling despondent? Get your war on has some words for you.
