For many, it's a time of Action.
Specific tips are provided by some -- call this number, follow this movement, take this action. All very productive. :)
But there's no coordinated Plan, and no local/state/regional Leaders are emerging.

As an old grognard wargamer (and '60s activist), I know the importance of organization.
So I keep circling back to this: What's the Plan, progressive liberals?

Mob the streets (& social media) and yell real loud?
Your sales pitch is the same false binary I was fed by conservatives, a decade ago: If you're not Against Them you're Against Us. Might work on some, but not me; that's kneejerk, not thought. Stop bushing me.

"When in trouble, when in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout." -- Heinlein et al.  Panic - Wikiquote
I'm getting a movie flashback -- the cartoonish Custer from NatM2... "My plan is, when I yell 'attack' -- we ATTACK!"
.

Don't reinterpret my aversion to your Proposal as antipathy to your noble Cause.

I don't see a coherent plan, nor a competent leader.
Get it together... or get used to disappointment. :(

Interesting times we live in, no matter which side you voted for. The presidential vote is now up for a recount on the premise that the machines were hacked by a foreign power, which would be an act of war if it happened. So I propose a poll. If we've been hacked, we should respond with:

A. Diplomatic protest at the United Nations, delivered in French
B. Cyberattacks of our own, such as a WHOLE BUNCH of Facebook dislikes
C. Land invasion and occupation, which has always worked before
D. Thermonuclear war

E: We should all (300+ million of us in the US) show up for dinner, uninvited, and leave the resulting mess for the foreign hackers to clean up.

I am convinced that I won the popular vote, if we deduct all those votes illegally cast by lizardmen in human guise.
