a quote from glenn greenwald
(5) The basic mechanics of American democracy, imperfect and defective though they may be, still function. Chronic defeatists and conspiracy theorists -- well-intentioned though they may be -- need to re-evaluate their defeatism and conspiracy theories in light of this rather compelling evidence which undermines them (a refusal to re-evaluate one's beliefs in light of conflicting evidence is a defining attribute of the Bush movement that shouldn't be replicated).
and theres plenty of commentary that 'the dems elected are essentially republicans' line is bullshit,
take a bit of time, read and think, the whole world sees this as a significant shift in mind state, dont be so fast fellows to say, its nothing, its illusion, same gang different puppets,
maybe yes, maybe we'll see
