Just think, they stole the money from us to make the investment they get their ROI on and we get to pay the ROI too.

Funny how that works out.

Why are we subsidizing oil companies? What twisted logic allows that to happen?!?

The oil companies get what they pay for - its called lobbying
The military hardware companies get what they pay for - its called lobbying
The pharma companies get what they pay for - its called lobbying
The insurance companies get what they pay for - its called lobbying



Because of the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision,
we cannot accomplish anything significant,
without FIRST ending corporate personhood.
Because 83% of Americans already agree on it - we don’t have to explain or persuade people to accept our position – we only have to persuade them to ACT based on their own position. Pursuing this goal will prove to the world that we, at OWS, are a serious realistic Movement, with serious realistic goals.
Achieving this goal will make virtually every other goal –
jobs, taxes, infrastructure, Medicare – much easier to achieve –
by disarming our greatest enemy – GREED.
I feel that using the tactics of the NRA, the AARP an the TP – who all represent a minority – who have successfully used their voting power to achieve their minority goals - plus the Prohibition Amendment tactics – bringing all sides together - is a straight path for us to success


Our current project is developing and implementing,
a voting bloc petition to create voter support for candidates throughout the country.
We want to vote for candidates who pledge to support a Constitutional Amendment that includes:

Overturning the 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision which enabled the flood of secret money that is drowning our political system,

Overturning the 1976 Buckley Supreme Court decision which equates money and speech,

Eradicating the corporate personhood rights invented in the courts that
have enabled corporations to buy our democracy,

Supports campaign finance reform to level the playing field for all candidates.

The People For the American Way found 74% of Americans
want to vote for candidates who support an amendment.


Koch and the tea party and ALEC have ..the money –
….and the government –
……and they use them.


We have
..the people -
….and the vote -
……and we must use them!
