When it looked like Mitt Romney, with help from the "%1" might be able to win election. I realized that the potential for a "Corporate State" wasthrere and set about to plan for the resistance that I felt would be necessary. After the conventions, my level of fear dropped a bit. The first debate, though, had me worried.
As Election Day grew near, I realized that Romney's road to the White House was a complex one. But I also feared dirty tricks from a few "Tea Party" Governors, etc could still tip the balance to Romney.
About 11:30PM on Election Day, I could finally breathe easy. I realized that many of the things that I had planned to do in response to a Romney win are still completely feasible. I had anticipated attacks on Planned Parenthood and Public Broadcasting would come amd planned on volunteering with these groups. Is there anything stopping me from still doing so? I'm sure that WITF could use me come pledge drive time, and I have contacts in Planned Parenthood that I could utilize.
I had planned to try and build a "resistance portal", based around the "%99". I can still do this as well, just on a smaller scale. I plan to see if Harrisburg's Food Not Bombs and, if it can remain intact, Occupy Harrisburg, might want to have webpages set up. I'm currently working on lessons for a code developement contest that the website Good is running.
Finally, the smart phone I had planned on getting to assist in my efforts to defeat "USA Inc." as Shannon Kringen like to call the country, is still on my Christmas list.
