We're no worse off than we were before.
Granted, this country was in a shaky-at-best condition before Nov. 6. And yes, we missed an opportunity to turn things around. But the situation didn't get suddenly worse. It just stayed the same.
Now is not the time to give up. Keep in mind that there are still millions of people who share our views and values. We may be fighting a delaying action instead of moving forward (*snort*), but there is still much in this country worth fighting for.
So take a little time to grieve, rant, disengage, or whatever you need to do to deal with the election results, and then get back in the fight.
Remember the immortal words of John Blutarsky:
"Nothing is over until we decide it is!"
