OCCUPY the Republic, OCCUPY my Street Monthly Actions

January Three immediate actions are called to action. First: Move all your banking to a credit union that is none state run. Second: Change your W2 pay deductions to the maximum allowed so that no revenue is going to the government, and demand that all pay check deductions for insurance be billed direct rather than automatically deducted. Third: Do not pay auto insurance. Instead, write letters to networks and cable stations requesting they stop all commercials for insurance companies. (Insurance company advertisements are fear campaigns as is government legislation on insurance geared to force the working class to line the pockets of the bank owners and politicians.)

February Do not pay health insurance: Write letters to networks and cable stations requesting they stop all commercials for insurance companies. (Insurance company advertisements are fear campaigns as is government legislation on insurance geared to force the working class to line the pockets of the bank owners and politicians.)

March Do not send your kids to school the first week of March. Write letters to the schools and school districts demanding the return of civics courses and demand course curriculum reviews by the parents. Schools receive Federal and State income (your tax dollars) based on attendance. In addition to the property taxes you already pay, this is a subsidy income to the schools. We need to put an end to the dumb-down of our citizens by Government and Corporations who removed these courses from the schools. Civics courses teach the basic principals of democracy, activism, free press, and civil rights.

April Do not pay or file taxes. Write letters to congress representatives, senators, and IRS demanding they withdraw all foreign aide, all government projects awarded overseas, and reduce/cap all government payrolls to not exceed the average working class wage. This will be the panic button for the legislators and military.

May Do not buy gasoline the first week of May. Write letters to oil companies demanding them to rebate all government subsidies and income earned over the past 50 years to the citizens. Use car pooling and public transportation for the week. Do not stock pile ahead of time since the effect is to cause a significant drop in revenues to the oil companies and the government tax revenues from gasoline sales.

June Do not buy groceries the first week of June. Write letters to the grocery chains demanding they increase wages and benefits to their store employees without increasing prices to the consumer. Explain the benefit of cutting profits to improve the lives of the employee rather than increasing profits to fatten the bank reserve of a few owners who already have more money than they can ever spend.

July Do not go to work the first week of July. Let Capitalism reveal itself as a failure to improve the lives of the very people who provide the system with its very existence. Make the 1% and the government face and realize the contribution of paid labor and the failure of the dictatorships of business. Do not plan a vacation, trip, or anything that will cause you to spend more money. Plan time at home with family and protesting with your fellow citizens who also have the week off.

August Do not pay for water, trash and sewage. Write letters to your state Governor and the utility companies demanding they refund all revenue received from the federal Government over the past 50 years to the citizens.

September Do not pay the electric bill. Write letters to your state Governor and the utility companies demanding they refund all revenue received from the federal Government over the past 50 years to the citizens.

October Do not buy gasoline the first week of October. Write letters to oil companies demanding them to rebate all government subsidies and income earned over the past 50 years to the citizens. Use car pooling and public transportation for the week. Do not stock pile ahead of time since the effect is to cause a significant drop in revenues to the oil companies and the government tax revenues from gasoline sales.

November Do not mail holiday cards, use e-cards only for TG, Xmas, Honokaa, New year and use FedEx, UPS and other delivery companies for packages. The US Postal system is the worst run business in the world and a drain of tax dollars. We need to stop paying more money to the Federal Government for stamps and postal distribution.

December Two immediate actions are called to action. First: Do not go to work between the 25th and the 3rd of January. Let Capitalism reveal itself and realize the contribution of paid labor and the failure of the dictatorships of profits before people in our business culture. Second: Do not pay mortgage or rent. Let the few (1%) wealthiest feel what it is like to not have income for a change. Same as for not paying taxes in April, this will create panic in the legislation branch and the military.

January 2013: Write 34th letter to your kids from prison.

This is a nice dream but hardly a list of practical actions. They're predominately illegal.

Anyone can come up with illegal methods. The effort comes in when you try to find legal means of motivating those in power.

And your ticket to Federal prison. Especially after you write those letters admitting that you intentionally did not pay any income tax.
