I HAVE A POSITIVE WAY TO CHANNEL THIS ENERGY AND MOVEMENT TO AFFECT REAL CHANGE IN AMERICA BEYOND DEMONSTRATIONS.
PLEASE READ. I am an ex Hippie and believe that if this movement was organized and channeled going forward, we could stop the #1 issue and problem at the root of all you are demonstrating against, OUTSOURCING!! How do we do this, organize all to STOP BUYING THESE COMPANIES PRODUCTS ONE COMPANY AT A TIME. Pick one slimmie multi-national company, publish throughout the movement who it is we will target and STOP BUYING THEIR PRODUCTS!! There is a way to bring jobs back, BOYCOTT one company at a time and hit them in a place and in a way they only understand and that is their pocketbook. It will work. Stop buying their products till they stop outsourcing. My belief is that it would only take 1 company's demise to show the rest that the power of the people can and will prevail. As long as we keep buying their Made In China products where they pay O Corp Taxes they will keep destroying the middle class. The middle class was born out of manufacturing jobs that you could get without being educated beyond High School. Well we all know what has happened within the last 20 years and as long as we keep supporting this behavior then we need only to look in a mirror for someone to blame. TAKE THIS MOVEMENT AND CHANNEL IT IN A WAY THAT WILL FINALLY CRIPPLE THESE UNPATRIOTIC AND UN-AMERICAN SOUL-LESS INDIVIDUALS THAT ONLY CARE ABOUT HOW THEY CAN CONTINUE TO SELL OUT AMERICA.
This won't accomplish anything. You'll pay more for your goods, the corporations will lose a negligible amount of revenue that they will make up some other way.
Basically, you will have paid more for your purchases for no reason.
Economics is fun.
If we are not willing to pay a little more then they continue to win. Of course it has to be more then just myself to be effective, the main point.
