I am interested in getting more info on how to get involved. I saw this video of occupy footage yesterday that pushed me/inspired me to finally get involved. Kudos to whoever put it together. "Lets Roll never give them control, they've got their money, but we've got our soul!" very Powerful lyrics! For those who haven't seen it it's a MUST


Best wishes,

Jimmy Carter calls out Fox News for lies and distortion of truth


This was known before the Obama administration and NATO supported the "rebels"


I don't like a lot of what congressmen Louie Gohmert stands for but he is 100% right and uses facts and evidence to back his claims of the torturous, murdering, rapist, Libyan "rebels" and their ties to Al Qaeda.


Wake up America.


this video puts all the weird moments about 9/11 into 5 minutes. I'm not claiming anything about 9/11 but this video is backed with facts. Which I recommend you double check and look into on your own. Always back everything with facts and look into everything. Sadly there are "crazy" conspiracy theorists but there are also 1,600 professionals that signed off on architects and engineers for 9/11 truth that say that building don't fall down like that.



Propose a bill to end massive contributions from lobbyists, unions, and corporate influences. The "supreme" court ruled the Bipartisan Campaign Finance Reform Act, aka McCain-Feingold, unconstitutional. Obviously the supreme court is corrupt. They claimed that "McCain-Feingold" denied "free speech" even though 1: Money isn't free and 2: 100% of US citizens still would have had freedom of speech and the ability to contribute to campaigns. So how was the supreme court able to say it suppresses free speech? Another fact, a lot of corporations are owned through many investors. Sometimes these investors are foreigners. I didn't know foreigners in other countries were allowed to participate in our government. The government is supposed to be governed by it's people. I feel like most members of the government have never read the constitution.

I'd say propose a bill to nationalize the federal reserve but that bill has already been created and is being reviewed by the Financial Institutions and Credit Committee. Look up The National Emergency Employment Defense Act of 2011.

All these rich people keep telling us that our country is in massive debt... all the while they keep making more money. These rich people are members of congress and the president.

"Both parties are rotten - how could they not be, given the complete infestation of the political system by corporate money on a scale that now requires a presidential candidate to raise upwards of a billion dollars to be competitive in the general election?"

‎"The money power preys on the nation in times of peace, and conspires against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. Corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the Republic is destroyed. I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever before, even in the midst of war. It denounces, as public enemies, all who question its methods or throw light upon its crimes." -ABRAHAM LINCOLN

Here's some info on many things


Fascism creeping into our country says Congressman Dennis Kucinich


Did you know that the original Bush administration and the UN used tactics similar to those that Hitler used when the US was in a war against Iraq? Bombing their clean water resources, bombing factories that provided food... which was needed by their INNOCENT civilians to survive... It's how you exterminate a society. Cut off their food. These tactics were outlawed in international laws and treaties with other nations after WWII. And people in America called it PATRIOTIC. Another tactic that was used was the long distance missile strikes. Using guided missiles, weapons that could be used to kill at a distance, they do that so those doing the killing need not have to face the reality of what they were doing. It's all just a point on a map. They have no idea a child is in that house. They have no idea that the factory they pushed a button for isn't what their superiors are telling them.

Madeline Albright said the price of half a million deaths of children in Iraq was worth it! Why do you think other countries hate the USA? It's not too late. We can save our nations reputation in the world. All you have to do is be aware and informed and act upon that knowledge. Everyone must be aware. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2irN1G5HiRo

Important step to progress. Congressmen in Florida recently drafted the OCCUPIED bill

Outlawing Corporate Cash Undermining the Public Interest in our Elections and Democracy ( shortened into OCCUPIED)


The only problem is THEY still own the news. And 80% of the way any person votes is based on what they see on tv. Which is why we need to keep informed on our own and also share information and truth with each other whenever possible. The news is based on profits. If they lose attention and ratings they could be forced to change their way. People need to act and fight against the propaganda machines and demand truth. No more spin. No more distortion and half truths. No more lies. No More Lies!! We demand the truth and nothing but the truth. To that the government says "YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!"

You are on your way down the rabbit hole. See how far it goes. The internet has truth at a click of a button. Always look into information and check it for facts before you believe any of it. The government lies and they've been doing it for YEARS.
