Barney Frank made a good point about the movement. Eventually, this movement will have to overpower and overtake the political system. We need OWS faithful to inevitably flood the vote.
Yeah, I know... the system is broken, bought off, etc. However, this is not entirely the case. I would challenge OWS protesters to flood the halls of government. There is a point when words must become action.
If Egyptians can cause regime change, so can we.
We need to demand MORE options to vote, not less. We need to HALT the districting that is being done behind closed doors to make our voices irrelevant. We need to show the Washington elite one major lesson - that they are beholden to us. They are beholden to the 99%.
