Forum Post: I nominate Jesse LaGreca to be our spokesperson

We need a spokes person that is one of our own. We are people putting pressure on elected representatives. Those progressive people in Congress will follow our lead. I highly recommend Jesse LaGreca to be our spokes person. He was interviewed and featured on the nightly news moderated by Diane Sawyer. He was interviewed again this morning on This Week With Christiane Amanpour. He is an extremely articulate participant who isn't intimidated by the press and is media savy. He knows the issues and there is no one I have heard that can represent us better. He is one of us...not a politician.

Although I'm all in favor of taking down today's ineffective and inefficient Top 10% Management Group of Business & Government, there's only one way to do it – by fighting bankers as bankers ourselves. Consequently, I have posted 1-page Summary of the Strategic Legal Policies, Organizational Operating Structures, and Tactical Investment Procedures necessary to do this at:

I am not suggesting a leader. I am recommending a participant who knows what we want and can articulate it to the press. He responded to a Fox News interview so articulately that Fox news chose not to air the interview. Diane Sawyer picked up on that and aired an interview with him.. Take a look at this UTube link which shows how he responded to Fox News. He would be a great spokesperson to represent all of us to the press. He doesn't overstate what we want. Here is the link you will have to cut and paste. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhO3dTdp6ek

I do like the way he speaks but am judging from very little. Yeah we don't want leaders but a spokesperson/representative can get things done. By the way, here is his blog: http://www.dailykos.com/blog/MinistryOfTruth

we do not need any leaders. none. at all. it is self defeating to do that.

we do need people to step up and form a party and get people running for office, but those should not lead the movement but rather listen to the assembly and direct democracy on the net.
