I admire OWS and have thought of joining in, but I don't really want to camp out in front of someone's house. I believe that the only way to really make changes is by reaching out to the populace and mobilizing everyone against the current system. The only safeguard that prevents the US from turning into the Congo is one man one vote. And everyone needs to take advantage of that. Basically, I think it would be nice if we could hold local meetings and talk about issues that really concern us, focus on maybe two of those issues, and find solutions. We could hold meetings with other groups, find ways to meet with senators and representatives, and do a lot of outreach in our neighborhoods. If we have large numbers of people putting pressure on our lawmakers to fix the problems or face being voted out of office, then maybe we could really accomplish something. Does this sound like a good idea to anyone? It would not be partisan. Republican or Democrat, we are all facing the same problems.
