Don't Agonize, Organize

I apologize for missing last night's posting I'll make it up to you guys, I promise!

So, last night I went to see a great concert by RebbeSoul. They're some great musicians who take traditional, mostly Jewish, tunes and re-invent them. They were absolutely fantastic. They had these two incredible percussionists, both of which I had the pleasure of meeting.Cassio Duarte and John Walker were simply incredible.

This story goes somewhere, I promise.

So, after the concert, John Walker and I were talking with some other people and he saw my ever-present messenger bag and its multitudes of politically related buttons. He commented on it, I mentioned that yes, I was a crazy liberal to which he replied. "Oh. Then I'm sorry." This referred to the election of George W. Bush as the next president (as far as I'm concerned, he didn't win the first time around.), not to the fact that I'm a liberal. I told him my feelings on the election. And that's what today's post is.

I told you the story went someplace.

So, the election of Bush. I know I posted earlier my distaste to the results of the '04 election. ("Hello? 1972?" Why, yes! We can make the same mistake twice!") I even made several references to a possible defection to Canada. But as of right now, it looks like I'll be spending the next long while in the States. So, it's about time that we alter the attitudes to better suit the upcoming political era of craziness.
First thing we have to deal with is the fact that Bush won. Disturbing at best. But he did. Democracy took it's course and ended up sucking in the process. But the process was followed and we HAVE to respect that. So move on, people.
Now, what do we do? Organize. We can't change the president, we need to work with what we have. That means it's more important than EVER to lobby for your cause. Now is the time to push for what needs to be done. And it's time to push harder than ever. We have to really hold our politicians to the fire and pressure them to support our rights. It is no longer acceptable for us to sit at home and decide not to be involved.
And if that doesn't work....

Then it's time for a revolution.
