Some misinformers here are advocating boycotting the vote. Please look at this whole thing to see why our votes are so important.

Presently there are actions being taken in many states to make it harder for the poor to vote. Why? The answer to that has been known since 2005, though not a lot of people in my area know it. How about yours? Spread the word.

This was posted at the daily Kos on 4 October 2009:

"You see Michael Moore highlights a confidential report that Citigroup initially circulated only to it's wealthiest customers. Those reports, since leaked, plainly discuss the power of the Plutonomy in America, and how it would only strengthen, as long as the "the rest us" (the non-plutonics) could be kept in the dark about the Plutonomy existence, its role, and its over-arching control in the American Economy.

Even though the Plutonomy (the top 1%) control over 50% of the net worth in America -- they don't control the Votes!

The thing they most fear is the principle of "one person -- one vote".

You see despite their extreme wealth and power, they only have 1% of the vote; "the rest us" control the other 99% of the votes. So if we ever caught on and, I don't know, maybe raised their taxes back to where it use to be (40-90% range), well maybe they couldn't have a Yacht in every city, or a Mansion in a half dozen states. Maybe they couldn't "lose count" of how many homes they owned."

Better hurry though. Citigroup has been forcing sites to take it down judging by what I've seen on the net.

mmmmmmmmmmm. Well at least you see RP took note. It looked like he took this seriously (to his credit).

I regrettably admit I am one of the guilty ones that opted out of the political system years ago. I had become disgusted with a system I viewed as corrupt from top to bottom, that the individuals vote was useless. I now realize that was wrong. This site (and a bit of wisdom that only comes with age) has changed my mind. If OWS does turn out to be part of the grand plan to further the agenda of the so-called NWO, in some small ways it's having the opposite effect, by bringing individuals like myself back into the political discourse.

Don't be guilty. Be steadfast now that you see what is happening.

You see that OWS is not part of the NWO. Read the report from Citigroup. Their NWO is a Plutocracy--ruling of the few wealthy elites over all the rest. That is not what your government stands for and that is not what OWS stands for. If anything, we want the representative government that was put in place by the founding fathers and that is not what we have today. The representatives are bribed by the plutocrats.

The GOP war on voting link below tells us about how the Republicans are trying to keep people from voting.

The internal memo from citigroup to the 1% wealthy people tells them the only threat to coninuing to take money out of society is the political process. They are saying our votes are the only thing that can stop them.

You see a lot of people pretending to be OWS on this forum; they say all kinds of strange radical things and they do it to confuse. They are afraid of OWS and they are trying to keep it from spreading.

Agree 100%. I checked that link a couple days ago. It shows the lengths they'll go to try and silence the masses. For all the dumbing down of society they've done over the last few decades, they haven't done enough. As these sites have proven, to me at least, there are still plenty of highly-intelligent, well-informed and motivated individuals around.

Spread the word. We will grow.

This is why your vote matters...

WOW:

"The political process is the greatest threat to plutonomy. We don’t see it as a threat today in most countries. But we are alert to changes here."

Hence, the GOP war on voting:

Yes. This is main stream reporting not sci-fi. Spread the word.

[-] 1 points by thebeastchasingitstail (1912) 3 years ago

Market to the rich, cuz they'll soon be the only ones who have any money to spend.

[-] 1 points by JQcitizen (125) from Houghton, MI 3 years ago

This is the way they analyzed this.

"we think the most potent and short-term threat would be societies demanding a more ‘equitable’ share of wealth."

"Perhaps the most immediate challenge to Plutonomy comes from the political process. Ultimately, the rise in income and wealth inequality to some extent is an economic disenfranchisement of the masses to the benefit of the few. However in democracies this is rarely tolerated forever."

"The political process is the greatest threat to plutonomy. We don’t see it as a threat today in most countries. But we are alert to changes here."

So that is what they believe. One way to keep this trend alive is to erode the right of the people to vote it down.
