I can understand apathy with regards to voting. I was angry that near the center of OWS: Northern Queens and Eastern Bronx, a candidate closest to OWS position of anti-coporatism and redistribution of wealth, was knocked out of the Democratic Primary. This is George Martinez of District 7.
Most candidates that support policies such as a transaction tax on Wall Street, actually stopping giving corporations tax breaks, continuing progressive taxation, and returning money back to the classes that made it are Third Party candidates. If you would like to join a community dedicated to raising awareness of these candidates, feel free to like these pages:
There are a few Democratic OWS-like candidates that have passed primaries. Nicole Lefavour of Idaho, Ron Varasteh of California, and arguably Lance Enderle of Michigan and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. Would you vote for these people if you lived in their districts? What if they were third party instead?
