Using Technology to Deepen Democracy, Using Democracy to Ensure Technology Benefits Us All

This is the positive ad fountaining across the Battleground states to get HRC's negatives up while her campaign simultaneously dumps video montages of crazy slash bigoted Trump quotes (like the one I posted a few minutes ago) all over social media. Millions more people are only just starting to pay serious attention to the campaign and HRC is defining her opponent early -- as Obama did in 2012 -- and building her counter-narrative while Trump flounders under the weight of organizing and fundraising issues. Anything can happen, that is what makes the Trump candidacy so horrifying, but be clear that Democrats are organizing to take advantage of the Trump moment to seize back the reins of government across its branches and from top to bottom. Increasing and improving healthcare, comprehensive immigration reform, green investment and jobs, gun safety regulation, lowering education costs and debt, strengthening financial regulation, securing abortion access, a shift from punishment to harm reduction and to community policing will all rise or fall, potentially saving and improving millions upon millions of lives, will depend, like it or not, on whether or not Democrats succeed in this venture.
