Fight back

FIGHT BACK. [channeling me3 :)]

I just returned from voting, Webb for Senate in Virginia. Turnout is ultra-light. Individual votes could really make a difference in this race.

As of 10:30 only 120 people had voted, and they said that was three times the level of surrounding precincts.

If you’re angry, sign up to help elect someone, or go to Act Blue and donate money. Write somebody who is doing good work and send them a letter of encouragement. Talk to the person next to you in the grocery checkout about what’s going on with the government.

Everybody can do something. Promote yourself to the next level of civic involvement, like a battlefield promotion. If no one is organizing in your area, YOU do it.
