Just an idea, why hold signs in the cold next to homeless people and get confused with them because the vast majority of the american public are dumb.

Okay so I bet I offended one of you by calling Americans dumb, but how many people signed ajustable rate mortgages and didn't read or understand what they were signing, or did understand but couldn't do basic math and way the increases in interest and think how that would affect there monthly income. People are stupid, we held signs and the vast majority of the public get there news from the media that is owned by the corporations. Just research prop 37 in California and see how Monsanto is paying all the papers editors to run negative stories against prop 37.

This is how the world works and is one reason Occupy on the streets failed, but what is Occupy on the internet? what could it be, and no I'm not saying Occupy should join the ranks of Anonymous, even tho we are all Anonymous and dont realize it.

Someone want to make a move? the clock is ticking, the war on the internet is real and free speech is on the cutting block. Just look at that story of that terrorist that the FBI found on Facebook flew him over here and put a bomb in his hands at the federal reserve, could of been a random coincidence but just look at if someone said they wanted to end the fed they have a real possibility of being labeled a terrorist. /rant

Okay back on topic, the point of holding signs and protesting is to bring awareness to an issue, and most videos and stories online are police vs occupy and thats not the message of Occupy. Is occupy really using the full potential of the information super highway? With the right message we could spark a discussion, just look at this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHbYJfwFgOU over 200k comments.

Remember that video that anonymous released
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCbKv9yiLiQ and it started a world wide protest from just that video.

Okay the vast majority of occupiers don't know how to make videos but that doesn't mean we can't do something and rally.

I know some of you have Idea's, right now there is someone out there with an Idea that could change everything, an idea that could make occupy an unstoppable force. Occupy has no leaders, its something that the vast majority agree with and it gets done in unity. But there was a first, a first man who said "We are the 99%" and the guy who even verbalized the words we should occupy wall street. It starts with the power of one. We need a platform to rate and evaluate Idea's on what our next move is, the pros and cons need to be voted on, we need to unite under one goal, or a priority of goals in an order that they need to get done. Okay, this was just an idea, want more? I know I do, only if we had something that connected everyone.

Maybe that will never happen but we can do something right now.

This video is made by Luke at wearechange.org Luke has been working for us by busting his butt making videos trying to wake people up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Skw-0jv9kts

What if 10 or 100 or 1000 people started helping Luke by spreading his videos around the internet in an organized fashion by voting them up on all the social media sites so the videos go viral.

How? Reddit.com Sites like http://www.spikednation.com/ I'm sure there are a dozen of sites like this.

What if we grouped up and voted up commets on youtube like

Hey TYT's like and favorite this video /watch?v=Skw-0jv9kts

we thumbs up that comments so it get to the top and people will watch it even if the TYT's don't like or favorite it.

Okay I don't think anyone is going to read all this, but what are or alternatives? Doing nothing gets nothing done.

Remember that guy that quit? Neither does anyone else.

I like your ideas.

Without leaders it won't get done.

Leaders have skills, need time, money. I bet people would give a little money to an effort to get a voting website for a platform, issues and candidates. Ill pledge 50 bucks.

Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.

Maybe Occupied failed because the reason why twitter is so successful. I see followers.
