So, here I am getting pumped that this movement is at least attempting to create a new process to figuring out problems, and now people are suggesting we adopt the current processes! This General Assembly is a completely unique process and I humbly believe that this is a must in order for this movement to gain steam. Forget the current terms. Right, left, libertarians, blah blah. Friends, they are all why we are here now. First, libertarians want extremely limited government. If we were to adopt this process right now and elect a libertarian, then the "starting points" would be blatantly uneven. Even more so than now as that party would want no social programs paid for by government. It would make little sense. The government would be weakened and then the folks with loot would be in charge simply because money is not going to lose its power. Come on. We need a unique approach to this unique situation. I believe we need a strong government, just one that is working for us. We need social programs like after school programs so kids can get better adjusted and parents can work longer hours to get ahead, and so forth. A libertarian approach would require the people to pay for these programs and as we know, people can't even afford simple mortgages! This 1% are the only ones that can afford to act communally right now. We need a vibrant strong government (and certainly not the dems!) and I will strongly say that all forms of government are wrong right now. None of them are going to fix our situation. A new one will, so let's remain focused and create a new process. And is there a way to add to the discussion? Is there a way to be involved with this general assembly without getting to NYC? I want to be involved in the discussion!
