sorry, but AFAIC, as a whole, they're fucking morons. including myself for not doing anything noteworthy in protest over the last six years. including Kerry (for ignoring the swiftboating and conceding so quickly) and Gore, whom i love apart from his taking the fucking goddamned high road back in 12/2K when even /i/--a totally deluded individual--could smell the cheating and deception et al.

I started to write a response for you last night, but exited because it was poor. If you feel discouraged, it certainly shouldn't be about yourself. Consider all the "right-wing conservatives" who are really supporters of big-spending, big government hate and murder. Think of all the other people who have no opinions and do nothing, or worse, those who have opinions and do nothing. Next to them, you're a saint. You think correctly and express yourself constantly. It could be so much harder: DC Media Girl has been suffering from crippling writer's block for months. I see it happen to others. I wonder if it's not writer's block as much as a sense their mission is futile. I hope not. Anyway, Rimone, the news has been slow the last few days and I started thinking that whatever happens with laws, wars or elections, we should do whatever we can to encourage correct-thinking people to be more politically active. I believe we could have avoided a lot of the trouble the GOP has caused if we'd drowned out their incessant noise machine. This point may become self-evident after the next election, which is sure to be riddled with problems. Hope must spring eternal, or we're just taking up space. And hey, Bush hasn't attacked Iran. I figured he would the day the ships arrived. Maybe he'll change his mind (doubtful, but we can dream). Finally, don't feel like the Lone Ranger--no one else knows what to do about it all, either.

Uranus: I believe we could have avoided a lot of the trouble the GOP has caused if we'd drowned out their incessant noise machine.

yup but they've been working on it since the 70s (they're still pissed about nixon and clinton's being impeached didn't satisfy them which i think is amazing). i think the Democratic party's still in shock and hasn't a clue.

They can be beaten, but there's a trick to it. (1) ignore the political strategists. (2) drive home the point that the real enemy is a radical, apocalyptic agenda based on wild spending, world genocide and the fascistic merger of government, corporations and religion. The "conservatives" aren't entitled to politeness or courtesy. They do nothing but screw up, and it's best to point it out to them, in no uncertain terms. That thinking is a little ahead of the curve, so it hasn't caught on yet.

Also, bringing a few of these criminals to justice is a big help--and bringing as many as possible to justice is a fate they have correctly earned. That would be the president, vice president, their staffs and lawyers and everyone who voted for all the legislation which violates the Constitution. Include all these so-called "conservative think tanks" instigating war. That shit's a crime, too.

everything you said above, Uranus, particularly this: Also, bringing a few of these criminals to justice is a big help--and bringing as many as possible to justice is a fate they have correctly earned

i think that's called 'accountability.' i haven't seen any over the last six years.
