What are your plans now that Biden has won?

Biden is now our future president. The entire country breaths a deep sigh of relief.

Now what do we do? Do you have any goals?

First of all I’m makin celebratory sketti tonight.

Second of all, I plan on becoming 100% louder about my politics and even more radical. And I’m going to try to get my license so I can participate in the senate race this January. (Also so I can get a job.)

Well chop chop old sport! Crying and begging for the attention ain’t gonna pack your bags faster! 
 

you waiting on somebody to beg for you to stay? To say your opinions as an “Anti-SJW” who blocks Antifascists on site (speaking of which why are you here? This SITE is run by Antifa) matter in a fandom run by BIPOC, LGBT+, and Neurodivergents? Nobody is going to care that your trump supporting ass doesn’t feel welcome anymore! 
 

here’s the attention you ordered, now shoo and go do those things that make you happy instead ✨✨

Time to sit back and watch the world's largest salt mine running for the past 4 years go back to business as usual, along with the rest of the world.

I won't presume to know what brings you joy, but it certainly isn't in engaging in political discourse, not least of all within a group whose raison d'être doesn't revolve around it. If that's your only reason for even associating with the Fandom, you're barking up the wrong tree.

I'm gonna get more involved in politics and never take my vote and voice for granted again. Four years ago, leading up to 2016 election, I was politically apathetic (and living in a swing state where my vote might have mattered). These past  4 years have been long and agonizing as I watched this country devolve into a hellscape for BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and others.

This election cycle I got much more active. Donated to causes, opened political dialogue with family (which was often times difficult), worked with the students I taught to get them excited about voting and political causes. Staying engaged was exhausting, but it has paid off in spades. I will never be politically apathetic again. The vote matters. All of them.

Also, I will never vote for a Republican again in my life unless they undergo a MASSIVE reformation of their party (I was a McCain voter in 2008). Instead of holding their leader to account for the violations of law and norms, they fell in line behind him. Even now, many of them are trying to find a way to take these results to the supreme court and invalidate the voice of the people. They are all fascists, plain and simple. They have no place in America. As far as I am concerned, any decency the Republicans/Conservatives may have had is long dead, and so their party is dead to me.

I'm not American, but if I was, I would breathe a sigh of relief, go "glad we took the bad option instead of the worst one", then go back to campaigning for progressive rulings.

Related note: for anyone who is still able to, please continue to push for change! We can celebrate the small victories, but Biden getting in office is a start at best. Make sure that he does something while he's in office, instead of continuing to suck off the corporate scum in America.

I'm going to get involved in some mutual aid in my city, see if I can find the time to volunteer. I'm also planning on writing some essays to hopefully bring around some conservative family members on why their political views don't actually correspond with their beliefs. And also just writing essays in general, I feel like I want to rant in  l  o  n  g     f  o  r  m

Sorry to rain on your parade, but barely more than half the country sighs in relief, according to the results of the popular vote.

Also, to every American: keep on doing political things, especially in states that have to representatives to the Senate and House. Dems need the majority else Biden won't be able to do much if the Reps can block everything he did like they blocked Obama.

 
When it's finally safe to go to restaurants again, I plan to go to brunch!

Sorry, I couldn't resist the meme. Although I honestly do miss going to brunch with my family, which was was a weekly thing for us when my grandfather was still alive, but we haven't done it very often since then.

Someone mentioned "sign of relief."  I'll second that.  When I first thought I saw where the election was going, I tried to mentally prepare myself for life with less access to healthcare, fewer rights, etc.  But now that the worst of the worst (relatively speaking) has been out-voted, I can at least think things might not be so bad, although there's still a lot of progress I'd like to see this country make.

My plans are the same as they ever were, just with the knowledge that liberals will happily ignore anything that happens to me now that their hero has won.

if your plan isnt to keep on working, protesting, paying attention, then tbh youre just as bad as the racist youre trying to fight against. 

my plan is to keep on scavenging for cash, keep on being unable to afford healthcare, keep on being afraid to go outside cuz cops will mace me and dems will be like “hey! at least we’re not socialists!” this election gave me no sigh of relief, just a bittersweet anxiety for when ill have to leave the house again. 

work aint over yet, folks. dont forget those of us that have slipped through the cracks. not everyone can celebrate this.

Well I dont live in the US but a lot of my friends and family do, so for me its to work (mostly online) to further push things left, remember Biden is still a stooge of the capitalist system and at best is a centrist

Also the way politics in the US goes affects a lot of places around the world

 
I don't live in the US so I guess the only plan I have is to encourage Americans to keep the heat on him because the only way some corporate owned centrist like him is going to continuously do good things is if people show they will not unconditionally support him simply on the basis of not being a fascist. Dem gotta learn REAL quick they won't stand a chance in the future if they don't start supporting at least some left leaning policies, they cannot be allowed to continue to lie about leftism hurting them lest America be back to square 1 in 4 years time.

Gonna echo everyone here before I stop following this topic. We absolutely need to keep pushing and keep the pressure on politicians to do what’s right, because like HELL Biden and Harris will even make an attempt to do anything even remotely left leaning.
Don’t let a Dem president pacify you. Our work ain’t over, getting Trump out wasn’t even step one.

I'd say from an optics perspective, don't phrase it as becoming radical, especially when those opposed to Trump are being framed as radical extremists by his supporters. You're becoming more politically involved; that is what you say.

As for me, I guess I'll start will a sigh of relief and the vacation I'm on now. Though I think people need to remember to support Raphael Warnock on January in his race in Georgia. For those interested, you should be to support the campaign with cash or calls remotely even if you live out of state.
