I think it's time all occupy members put a target on the wall street corruption with oil. As a large group we have the ability to bring this issue to the front and force the crooked politicians to take oil off the stock market and do away with all the corruption and price gouging that goes with it. The whole country would join and support this issue and we can force the crooks to give it up. You need a national issue that affects everybody and oil is the target. Lets make it happen now!!

How will you force anything? Good idea devoid of a plan. There might be another more comprehensive way. Can you imagine environmentalists will not examine the solution?

BTW, the authority it would take to do what you suggest can only come from an Article V convention where 3/4 of the states are ratifyin amendments.

BTW, the issue of corporate personhood could be premptively useful in effecting exactly what you suggest. Again Article V is the only possible way to get the authority needed.

Why don't you just buy some stock in an oil company so you can profit too?

There are many other factors influencing stocks not to mention that you won't get the full profiting effect buying oil stocks this late. Oil price gouging is a valid topic to focus on regardless.
