Don't worry about complete thoughts. FSM knows, I'm still in shock for the same reason: this isn't even about politics and policies - so many people voted for someone who embodies sexual abuse of women, racism, white power, climate change denialism, and even fiscal ineptitude and vengefulness. And we're already seen reports of middle schoolers chanting "build the wall!", women being attacked (on University campuses, even), racist/white power graffiti, the KKK announcing victory rallies..

At least California's comparatively safe, with election results showing Trump rejected across the state, and especially in San Francisco. (I admit, I've always had to chuckle at the conservative rallying cry of "San Francisco values", as if inclusivity were regrettable!)

I'd certainly agree that getting more involved in politics will be useful, and donating to any number of organisations that will be feeling the strain, like The Trevor Project, the ACLU, the Transgender Law Center, the Sierra Club, Greenpeace, and so on. Even further afield, it's difficult to see any wars winding down, so Merlin and Doctors without Borders can continue to use donations as well.

On the political front, you might try SLUniverse's "Politics, Religion, and Society" forum - it's a great community, and a superb resource, with folk bringing together not just the major headlines, but the later articles that go into the specifics as well, along with plenty of discussion. It's a heady brew, though - don't worry about reading first and only posting later. =:)
