I think this is an important question to define our movement? Who would be in our parliament? We should find the brave and smart people, and start picking the best of us. I will start brainstorming. How about Elizabeth Warren, Stiglitz, and Krugman?

I would take the entire thing and trash it. Let the states create their own governments, and through that elect the national panel.

The plan in the 99% Declaration is to have GA's in every congressional district elect two delegates to a National General Assembly. It would in essence be a parallel congress that would act as a watchdog... with teeth!

Anyone can try to be a delegate, the people of the district choose, so it could be knowns like Jesse Ventura or even Ron Lawl, Dylan Ratigan or Bill O'reilly, Sarah Palin or Elizabeth Warren, or completely unknowns with amazing ideas. And that's just the elected delegates. The NGA will draw thousands of submissions and a million people to Philadelphia. It could be the biggest positive political event in a generation.

First we would have to line up and write down all of our demands,whichever laws we want changed at the State and Federal level because there many unconstitutional and oppressive laws, then we interview the prospective nominee and he /she or she/he would have to agree to abide by our agenda then that person,those persons would have out trust. The best thing to do to start with is organize our own political party, better sooner than later and start registering the millions of followers to count on their vote then we would have a real established movement . As it is I like the movement in that it has reached global notoriety in only about two months and the many areas in which they're involved now . Really outstanding! However, we need a permanent identification and this comes with the organization of a political party. The numbers and the will is there so let's go ahead and get started on this.

Jessie Ventura would be my first pick.
