Do something!

America's founders did not hand us a People's democratic republic--only the chance to build one. Today's corporate and political elites are trying feverishly to yank that chance right out from under us. We cannot just shout, "Fight back!" That's futile--unless it comes with the democratic tools and structures to help ordinary grassroots people battle the bastards effectively. Luckily, all sorts of top-notch progressive groups exist to do just that. The following is but a sampling of the wealth of resources we have on our side. Choose one (or six, or all, or make your own list), then do something.
