The root of all corruption in the United States government is the Congress. Wall Street pumps the lifeblood of campaign contribution corruption into it but Congress expresses the soul of intention that enables and empowers Wall Street corruption.
We can have our greatest effect on the body politic in the primaries when few people participate. We can be the winning or losing margin for members of Congress and their competitors for the 435 House seats and 100 senate seats. All House seats and many senate seats are up for re-election this year.
We do not have to be a majority to make a difference. We only need to be the winning or losing margin in any race. A couple or three percentage points makes all the difference in a House race when no more than 1-2 hundred thousand voters are participating. Just a couple of thousand OWS sympathetic voters in a House district is all that it takes to change a primary election for Congress in our favor.
PLEASE OWS voters, start planning today to Occupy the Congressional race in your community.
Plan flash actions against corrupt incumbents.
Identify OWS sympathetic candidates.
Organize Independent voter registration drives in minority communities where the Democrats and Republicans don't want people to vote.
Learn your local election laws to figure out how to overcome the subversion tactics put in place by the Democrats and Republicans that keep them in power undemocratically. Find local public interest lawyers who can help you with this. There are some in every state looking for activists to take up the cause of purging the election system of corruption.
The Congress That Crashed America http://home.ptd.net/~aahpat/aandc/congcrash.html
People in states represented by any of the incumbents on this compilation have a particular opportunity and duty to fight hard to get these 184 people out of Congress. These 184 incumbents were in Congress in 1999 and voted for the repeal of Glass-Steagall. these people, more than any, are responsible for the economic collapse of America.
Fight wall Street!
Fight congress corruption!
Fight for America!
