Election results & future actions

Green Post-Election Reflections More than 12 days after Election Day, vote counts continue in Santa Clara County, California and the rest of the country.

This op-ed by Bhaskar Sunkara in The Guardian explains why the menace of a far worse political figure than Donald Trump in four years remains very real. Continue reading
