Now the battle lines have been drawn--the November election

Pretty clearly. Corporate money and xenophobia on one side, democracy and the interests of the people on the other. It'll be an entertaining series of years, since there's no ambiguity to it anymore. The process that started with the judicial coup of Bush v. Gore has now come to a close and we'll now truly get the country that we fight for. What this means is that corporate Democrats are gone, Clintonist centrism has lost, and the idea of moderate Republicans, already pretty battered, has mostly disappeared. The ones who now survive are pretty much just open corporate shills. So you have Progressives (and some liberals) on one side, corporate shills and ├╝ber patriotic xenophobes on the other. It's going to be like shooting fish in a barrel to plan and strategize in these upcoming years. Which side will you be on?
