Where are demands by the movement????Everyone is all over the place. They have to be specific and short:
- End the Fed
- Student loan amnesty
- Tax the wallstreet ( sales tax )
We are not associated with any political party!

Americas biggest problem is that Corporatism has Hijacked our Representatives in Washington. We need, 1)Serious Election Reform, 1 vote=$1 2)Serious Lobby reform
Then, with a government from the people of the people and for the people, we will resolve the other issues. Keep It Simple People!!!!
people you deserve the country you live in!!!! God Bless you !
Of course the issue is deeper. The demands however do not need to be broader, they just need to be made and backed with information and solid reasoning. The whole occupation is broad, i do not think you want to be making the demands broad also. Ending the Federal reserve and or auditing them as suggested by Ron Paul would be a start. Our house will still remain the same if the owners are sitting in the living room.
just giving an example...
The issue is deeper than just "ending the fed," forgiving debts, and increasing taxes. The demands need to be broader and more informed.
Do we really want to let the same system that screwed us over remain and be allowed to have the opportunity to do it again?
You are so right.
That is why we need a 4th body of government that is the people. Federal PUBLIC REFERENDUMS
Then we can do things like this ourselves without taking to the streets all the time...
God help us. Or, put more secularly as ud prefer... holy sh&t...sorry, uh...OMFG...um... Wowwww
Who is going to pay for the loans that students don't pay back?
If there is a sales tax, then the consumer gets screwed every time he buys something.
how about - we want it, therefore we deserve it!
