The OWS movement is grass roots.
The OWS movement is finally tackling the big problems / big issues.
Nothing good will happen without politics.
That's what DEMOCRACY is all about!
2012 is a crossroads for OWS.
If we fail to make our voices heard to those who profess that they want to represent us -- shame on us! We get the government we deserve!
I believe that at this critical crossroads in the direction of America, it is vital that OWS supporters attend all political meetings.
Ask the tough questions to all candidates.
With billions of anonymous dollars now pouring into the campaigns, it is vital that the middle class, the students, the poor, the minorities, the people who are being marginalized by the big-money-steamroller turn out and ask the tough questions. Keep asking. Ask and ask. Do not settle for vague slogans and limp responses.
"As former President Truman said when a supporter said to "Give 'em Hell, Harry!". Truman replied, "I don't give them Hell. I just tell the truth about them and they think it's Hell."
