People who can't get out to these protests your love and support still matter! you can make a difference! spread the word with videos and posts on facebook, myspace, youtube, blogs, occupy sites, everywhere!
What we are doing now will echo throughout the years to come, as the time we actually broke free of governmental and corporate tyranny and trully become a free people! This is what they wanted to accomplish in the 60s! Stay strong! We will not fail! Remember Andrew Jackson! Remember Thomas Jefferson! Remember John F Kennedy! Remember John Lennon! Remember Abraham Lincoln! This is what they wanted for our country! Lets make them proud! I've always lived in negativity, conditioned in a world that breeds it, I became negativity. But now I have a reason to be happy, I have a reason to hope. The possibilities for a better life outweighs any harm they can inflict upon us. We will endure, as we always have. Remember the actions of Andrew Jackson and his fight against the Federal Reserve to preserve the freedom that the United States represents. Remember the actions of George Washington and his fight for freedom from the tyranny of the British. Their battles are now our own.
We are one people, united we stand, divided only by those who act out of greed, for money is the root of all evil, it creates division along with politics, the system it upholds to blind the american people, fueled by corruption, into the false assumption that what they vote for actually makes a difference. Eliminate inequality, and together we will be victorious. Peace, love, and harmony is the key to overcoming.
Educate yourself, excercize social responsibility for each other, we all hold the key to setting us free, diversity will unite us, inequality will be our downfall, stay strong, ignorance has no place in a time of great change.
Don't let us get to the point of no return. It is up to you, and me, and everyone in the world to make a change now. Now before it's too late.

Anonymous' Calls to action
The global shift in consciousness is growing stronger everyday, knowledge is power, do not ever let anyone take that power from you.
"If life itself is possible, indeed anything shall be possible" -Myself =P
"The only thing to fear is fear itself" -FDR
"The old appeals to racial, sexual and religious chauvinism and to rabid nationalism are beginning not to work. A new consciousness is developing which sees the earth as a single organism and recognizes that an organism at war with itself is doomed. We are one planet." -Carl Sagan
"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results" -Albert Einstein
Here's a great Abraham Lincoln quote: "Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another, but let him work diligently and build one for himself."
John Lennon became a Republican before he died, JFK cut taxes for the rich, and Andrew Jackson, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were libertarians. This movement couldn't be any less in line with these people's values.
You miss the point. The heart of corruption lies with the banks, The Federal Reserve which the presidents I mentioned whole-heartedly dissapproved of because they saw the direction such an institution would lead this country. It was the direct cause of the Great Depression. You misconstrue this information, sir. Think outside your own short-sided beliefs.
There's a reason the Fed exists -- it's useful. How would you replace it?
And that Abe Lincoln quote implies that the only people involved this movement are parasites who have nothing to lose so they attack those who do have something to lose? That's simply not true.
No, what Lincoln was saying is that people shouldn't attack people who are financially successful -- in other words, that class warfare is wrong. The Occupy Wall Street movement, sadly, is fueled by the kind of petty jealousies and hatreds that Lincoln warned us about 150 years ago. That's what all of this anger at "the 1%" is about.
Lincoln also detested The Federal Reserve. Do you know how they operate with their process of Fractional Reserve Lending? I'm sure he didn't mean by that quote that we shouldn't stand up against corruption and tyranny. I'm really becoming disgusted with the mindset of some of the people on these forums. Humanity needs saved.
There's really nothing wrong with fractional reserve lending. It's done all over the world and it works.
Lol. No one should listen to this guy, do your research you don't even have to look far to know that this guy is trying to detract people who support OWS
This movement isn't about fractional reserve lending, it's about hating people who are more successful than us.
No..it is not. It's not about hate, and it's not about anyone being more successful than anyone else.
