All of the demands coming from the Occupy Movement are legitimate but now that everyone is aware of the movement it is now time to link all of these demands together under a unified message and goal of getting the money out of our politics.

OWS risks public opinion turning against them unless OWS evolves. Please do not let this wonderful thing fall into the trap that the mainstream media and fringe echo chamber is hoping you fall into. Even the echo chamber can't spin getting money out of politics into a bad thing because its what the overwhelming majority of the American people wants. It goes beyond party lines. Once this is achieved we can have debates on the important topics without outside money corrupting the discussions. And in turn our country.

We need a capped public funding system.

I don't care where it takes place, just as long as it happens. If its decided on Philly so be it. Bottom line is we need to end the bribery system in our politics.

99% of the 99% would agree. For the pocket change required, why can't we get consensus to hold the National General Assembly on July 4th in Philadelphia as suggested in the 99% Declaration and put 'get money out' center stage? ONLY then will the 1% take OWS seriously. While this declaration may not be perfect, I haven't yet seen a more powerful idea every American can identify with. Sticks said it's too highbrow for the average American, i hope s/he's wrong. https://sites.google.com/site/the99percentdeclaration/
