The 2004 presidential election

I'm collecting some of the interesting posts by LJ friends and friends of LJ friends here, to log the immediate reactions of my fellow net-savvy citizens. Please comment if you'd like to bring anyone else's viewpoints to my attention. I'm looking for articulate reflection and/or wit here, so no "D00d like we totally won" bullshit.

Consider volunteering at your local polling place during the next election. (angelcityblues)

The Dems have lost touch with Middle America. (hunterxtc)

"I voted my conscience -- which, these days, means I chose between sucking shit through a straw and sucking arsenic from a dead elephant's cock." (budgieinspector)

Dire prognostications for the American republic. (springheel_jack)

Change cannot be effected if its advocates leave the country. (prosicated)

"How do we get "US" and "THEM" to just be "US"?" (scottcrawford)

On being politically active (myasma)

A new map of North America (silly) (klig)

Election results, scaled by population (serious) (via kittenhotep)

A perspective from an Australian liberal (klig)

On practicing what you preach: liberals and tolerance (limenal)

Tolerance in practice (beeblebabe)

Sorry Everybody (via everybody & their cats)

My only comment on the election outcome: If changes in the Supreme Court lead to Roe v. Wade being overturned, I am not returning to the US. Yes, I feel that strongly about a woman's right to choose.
