The fall 2010 elections are a critical time, and =we= must vote, we must get it together, we must demand a higher way of living, or it could fall back the Republicans, the worsts aspects of the Republicans, to be direct. An increasing destruction of social services, privatization of schools and service infrastructure (teachers, nurses, firefighters, etc.), and the formal establishment of corporations as our leaders.
This can happen.
It can also easily go the other way, to an increasingly joyous way of life. Please get out there and vote. And please mobilize each and every person you know to join you. Offer to carpool. Find different ways to get everyone to go together (plan ahead to go together). Seriously.
