Occupy currently lacks an 'official' list of common goals so I propose we take the time to seriously make goals and/or changes that we would like to see. This won't be an official list, but I think we can all benefit from taking the time to address these goals.
My goals are Franklin D. Roosevelt's Second Bill of Rights, however it could use some updating:
"The right to a useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the nation;
The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation;
The right of every farmer to raise and sell his products at a return which will give him and his family a decent living;
The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home or abroad;
The right of every family to a decent home;
The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health;
The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment;
The right to a good education."
