Have you read the 99% Declaration? It speaks to starting an independent 3rd party

Didn't know. Appreciate your link to the information. This is the way to go. Take care. All my best.

It would be good to actually organize our own political party (Global Revolution Party?) and run our own people for all the available offices.

I like the idea of the movement being non-partisan (even though it's clear there is partisanship when it comes down to individuals). I do agree that we ALL need to be active in the upcoming election. That includes those that don't agree with our motives. We all need to participate. Otherwise we can't moan and groan when we get politicians in office, again, that won't help our society progress.

All I ask of everyone, do extended research and when it comes time to vote, do it. Don't sit at home thinking that your vote doesn't count.

Newsflash: the 99% movement is of <1% of the population. You guys couldn't even elect a mayor if you tried.
