Not sure that this can be corrected, but we'd better regird our loins... (David Browning)

Wrong lot got elected.

Seems that peoples' trust is highly dependent on their perception of the economy and what's in it for them. 'Abstract' matters such as defending our democracy, freedom of the press, doing the right thing by those who are less advantaged, etc, etc count for very little these days.

More concretely, I can't wait to get even more involved in fighting back. It's the only way I can lift my depression! There I feel better just at the thought of it. I might have some IT skills to contribute.

Hamish: Good onya David. That's the only way to get through the post-election despair that I know about - regroup, rethink, and continue to promote the reinvigoration of democracy.
