Next Step: Occupy Washington DC. Imagine the tens-of-thousands of people occupying parks and plazas around the country spending the winter organizing the occupation of Washington DC. Next spring until November elections, occupy the nation's capital. A mass occupation of DC would set the terms of the debate and completely marginalize the tea-party. Lets force the Obama Administration to take a clear stand and Republicans to deal with us or get out of the way!

Obama, Home land security and the FBI will break it up before it can change anything

The entire Occupy movement should come down to DC and camp in Anacostia Park, site of the original Bonus March Encampment in 1932. Do what the Bonus Marchers did. Set up a clean, formal encampment. I'm sure there are enough sponsors who will pay for potties and showers.

Then, every day, all those at the encampment should get up at 6:30 a.m. and march down Maryland Avenue to the Capitol and spend the day visiting their Senators and Representatives. Every day until they get something done, like a nationwide Section 8 subsidy program so that everyone pays 1/3 of their monthly income for housing.

Let's get organized, Fellow Workers!

We need to set up camps right in front of the White House. We need to stand our ground, if that means a fight so be it. It is time to show people that we mean business.

Why don't you support Jill Stein or RonPaul instead? Wouldn't that really force President Obama to "Change."
