That explosive, exhilarating, all-consuming surrender to being in love can be experienced within the full range of human capability.
When I've worked long and hard on a project; slept, dreamt and wept over it, finding those perfect final touches, I feel that explosive, exhilarating, all-consuming surrender to excellence.
Maybe I just enjoy experiencing exhilarating, all-consuming surrender. Some portion of the human population always does.
Sometimes, it matters nothing that the social cause I champion will lose, is losing, has been lost for decades.
I'm not here to win; I'm here to lead a life worth living. Don't follow me my path may kill you; it's damn near killed me a few times. Or, it might discomfort you when I exercise my legal and spiritual prerogatives.
Be your own leader, because we are the leaders we've been waiting for. The Democrats aren't going to save us; most of them are merely system guards.
What should be widespread panic about electronic voting is being ignored by the major parties on all of their TV and radio ads this season. Instead, they engage in age-old mudslinging. I nominate the mute button as the best invention of the 20th century.
Dems advise, "Let's not panic the masses" that we vote on systems wholly hackable, and for which there is no basis for confidence in reported election results. Dave Berman calls it "Faith-based reporting on faith-based voting." www.GuvWurld.org
I disagree with Dem strategy. Kerry's Concession not only conceded his race, but it also conceded this nation to profit-crazed, genocidal maniacs. When Shame on Sherrod Brown voted for torture, he sealed a devil's deal with Republicans, and permanently ended my association with the Democratic Party.
To the parties who bring us e-voting: A pox on both your houses. May you live in interesting times.

The future needs us to begin building parallel institutions that can support society as the corrupt institutions, in this case U.S. voting, crumble from lack of integrity, accountability, transparency, and credibility. http://trainingforchange.org/content/view/208/53/

Or, provide voters with a number of agencies to call or contact in case something goes wrong with their vote. You can do this by being a Challenger, a poll watcher, a pollster or a videographer. 1-866-OUR-VOTE
