Forum Post: A Clear and Vibrant Message is Crucial

It seems that the more demands we call for, the more clouded the message becomes, and the more people we alienate. We must attract people, not repel them! For people of differing persuasions to unite, they need a common cause, one which is illuminated by a clear and vibrant message that explains the corporate-political induced cause of our current economic recession.

The term "separation of corporation and state" could be used to illustrate the core problem in our economic/political system. People can easily draw the parallels between having a political system dominated by a religious elite as to one by a corporate elite. Both are absent the key ingredient, the people. Without them, government becomes stale and rotten, spoiling all that comes in contact.

Our nation is like a wagon pulled by a team of horses running wild, completely off the trail, hitting ruts and rocks, a few hundred yards back nearly going over the edge of a cliff. Ahead of us are different paths. One leads to anarchy, another to capitalism, another to socialism. Some of us want to go in one direction and some in another direction. We have all lost our grip on the reins, so before we can decide which direction to take, we must all take hold of those reins and together choose the road we will take. If one of us thinks he can change the course of this great wagon without the ability to steer it, he not only fools himself, but also those who follow him.

This has been a debate since inception.

This debate is what caused a lot of infighting, between those who wanted to get organized in a demands way, vs those that wanted to keep out of politics.

Get the money out. Plain and simple.

I dont think so. But many just wanted to remain a social protest, and not get involved in things political, which I found hysterical.

It kind of goes to show just how many were showing up to these because of twitt/faceboo vs really understanding things and being pissed off about it.
