Forum Post: Just Whom Am I?

I prefer to just go to the polls once every two years and pull one side or the other. Definitely ignore all other options. REAL political activity is something I just dont like.

I don't go to my local occupy either, mind you. But I do post on here a lot. I prefer posting on the internet with like minded people, rather than going door to door and campaigning for issues and people.

I dont believe a nation can ever go bankrupt, regardless of what history says. And Im fine with the wars, as long as Im not the one fighting them, and the innocent that die are "over there".

I dont mind my party lying to me. It the ones that I dont vote for that really piss me off!! If only I could get rid of them, then I could focus on my own parties lies. Until then, I will hold no one accountable.

Ive been trained to attack, and to go with every side of every issue that the mass media has decided I need to do. I refuse to realize that governments have been dividing people in the name of democracy for some time.

I refuse to realize that allowing the rich to preselect all the important choices means that I will NEVER be represented.

I refuse to think for myself.

There is nothing really going in my area to attend. I'm starting to fill out forms and sign stuff online now. At first I wasn't sure if these things were real or just a means of collecting names. Paranoid much??? Its nice this place is here. I do manage to learn a lot from the posts. I'm starting to make phone calls too. What's unlimited calling for???? Every little bit helps.

What city are you close to?

[-] 1 points by JadedGem (895) 1 year ago

The closest larger one is Valdosta GA. That is a two hour drive. This whole area sucks.

Looks like they have a GA every Saturday. Probably a good idea to show up with a protest plan for a few things specific, along with dates and times and what will be needed, and see who wants to help out. If anything else, there is always a lack of these types of people at the smaller ones. '

OWS is horizontal,. but it still needs people to jump in an get the ball rolling and show direction.

Thanks! Its grown a bit from what it was. Its still a bit to travel with gas prices what they are but it gives me hope that something may actually be closer to home if I dig around for it.

One person getting flyers done up and going door to door of residentials and commercial properties, recruiting and educating, is the biggest danger to the status quo.

It always starts with one.

I'm going to do a little talking with people out the community. I don't exactly know what I'll find but I've mentioned Occupy before and people seem positive towards talking about issues. Its not even like republicans just freak out or anything like you'd expect after dealing with trolls.

[-] 1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

Wanting to talk about issues that these two parties have no intentions of dealing with is something that has no political boundaries. We have found a few coffe shops/small book stores that allow for meetings on a weekly schedule. We can also advertise there the other 6 days a week for recruitment. Good stuff to look for.

Very well said sir! I too refuse to break out of the dogma I have had pounded into my head by teachers with no with real world experience. I also refuse to participate in anything other than groupthink. And I will NEVER believe anything in the MSM or the Internet unless of course it agrees with my preconceived notions and is already in lock step with my ideology.
