Remember the film "The Day After?" It is a fictional account of what might happen the day after a nuclear holocaust. The story centers on a handful of survivors in Kansas. 

Tension rises as radiation levels increase and Americans must find ways to survive against all odds -- physically, mentally and emotionally. Watch the following segment...

So, our "day after" is at hand. Tomorrow's election will set the course of the US for a very long time. And, the day after the election? Who knows? Republicans and their capitalist/fascist owners are planning massive legal challenges to any result that does not give them what they want -- democracy and the voice of the people be damned. They have a plan as to what the "new democracy" will look like. 

Are you ready? Are you aware of what is at stake? Will you vote? Will you turn your back on the process as corrupted as it is? Will your stance be moral as opposed to political?
One assumes there will be no poisonous radiation to deal with the day after tomorrow's election. But, it is safe to expect the poisonous political atmosphere that begins with a Romney victory will engulf the country in a tsunami of rapacious greed and possible ultra-violence. It will be the end of the experiment that was begun 230 years ago. The new political mantra will be:
"Democracy is dead . . . Long live Democracy."

Those interested in seeing the entire ABC "Day After" movie can watch it here.
