We need to have an agenda. Where we stand on issues and vote accordingly. I personally believe BOTH parties are corrupt to the core. But, there are a handful of elected officials that may support us and our iussues. In the case where neither do in a particular race, we should have our own canidate. This wont happen overnight. Its time to stop talking and start doing! Just my opinion.

You are correct and I think they (both parties) are working together behind the scenes. Lately it seems that a major vote on something they take it to the last minute to make the American people squirm. They should all be thrown out and start over fresh

We need to conform a little to participate in the electorial process. Beat them at their own game. The next question would be money. Have the money deposited into an account, to be allocated by our elected officials (we need to do that) AND a committee elected by us, the people, the OWS. The allocated money will be for OUR canidates to advertise, etc. Not buying votes in the traditional and corrupt way it is today. Rather, supporting our people running for office from a grass roots movement with full approval from them.

Members of congress should be paid by the hour and then maybe they would do something. They should also not have their own "elite" insurance plan and should not be treated like they are some form of God or something. If they survive four years in office then they can get 100% of their pay for life and that should also be changed. Put some officials in place that actually worked for a living and get rid of the deadbeat career politicians

Obummer is getting ready to put OWS folks in FEMA camps. I think he was talking about his own hope and changes not ours.

Every since day one with that clown the economy has been getting worse. Buckle up because I think in 2012 it is going to even get even worse than now

Yes - and I understand the slogan "Yes We Can!" will be revised to "Of course I can - by why would I?"
