I found an interesting article. It's titled "A Message to the Occupy Wall Street Movement". It can be found here; http://voices.yahoo.com/a-message-occupy-wall-street-movement-11492584.html?cat=9. It makes a very good point. I agree with it. But alas I don't think it can be done given human nature.

Excellent advice...it CAN be done but it can only be done if people actually do it. I will do it. I have already given up credit cards and I have no money in any large banks anymore, just the local credit union. I refuse to vote for any incumbent and did not vote for an incumbent in the last election. The writer is also correct that this applies to the local and state elections. We need citizens not career politicians in office and we need to force the incumbents to relinquish their power at the ballot box.

I refuse to take the negative view that it can't be done given human nature. I prefer to think that my fellow American citizens can be smart enough to realize that this IS the way forward. People that want to bash a corporation or bank and then buy their product or use their service are hypocrites which is no different than the hypocritical politicians in charge that caused this mess.
