I have a great deal of respect for Occupy Wall Street. I think they have done a great job bringing attention to issues that need to be addressed. I hope that they will continue to be a presence.
I do, however, have some concerns as to how an organization like OWS can really pull the 99% together for the fight. The vast majority of our country spends its days working to pay the bills and the evenings tending to friends and family. We live in a busy world. I am not saying that this is some sort of a dream or a fantasy. I am simply saying that it is the reality for a great deal of Americans. 99% of Americans will not sleep out in our nations public areas to make a point. It seems like too much effort. Too dramatic a solution to the problem.
How do we bring these people into the conversation? If we do not include everyday working Americans how can we say that we represent the 99%.
I have devised a system to help make the voice of the majority heard. It is a system open to everyone. I have started a lobbying organization to represent the interests of the majority. We do not have a predetermined platform or political affiliation. We are just here to represent you.
The system is designed to fit into the lives of everyday working Americans. It will keep them informed as to what issues are being considered by their government and give them the opportunity to make their opinions heard. It will pull together the strength of numbers, help us find common ground and get legislation passed.
