ezs note:  Okay... if the results prove to be true, we all need to take a deep breath.  Remember, there are constructive ways to move this country forward.  This is not an exhaustive list; it's just a sampling:

  • If you are old enough (18) REGISTER and VOTE
  • Speak at your local library
  • Bug your Congressperson (email/snailmail/in person)
  • Peacefully protest
  • If your man/woman is a douche, remember, you can run

ezs note:  Colorado's 2nd State Senate district - granted, it's a long way off, but if you have a strong LGBTQ credential, have a good rapport with people (whether they agree or disagree with you), and, preferably, have a spot on a city or town council, perhaps it'll be time to take away Kevin Grantham's seat in the Senate.  In case you didn't know, he went to, ahem, 'school' at Liberty University, of airhead Jerry Falwell's starting.

Yeah, that's who you've got representing you in the 2nd District.  You can do better.
