Forum Post: Should 'We are 99%' REALLY be our slogan?

In my opinion, I don't think so.

Why? Because it causes confusion. When people that are unfamiliar with the movement read this, they instantly think it's 1% vs. 99% which, in a way, it is and it isn't. Our main objective is to not make every millionaire make only 50k/year, and make everyone's salary equal, because that will kill the value of our dollar, and it wouldn't make a strong economy.

This movement (again, in my opinion) is about everyone standing up for their country, or better yet world, together and fight for everyone's freedom. To end the fed, and anyone who supports them.

Now I know that the slogan will probably not go away because we adapted to it, but I wanted to know your guys' opinions. So what are they? What do you think this movement is TRULY about?

I'm not sure ending the fed is the main goal. Ending a money ruled political system, eqaulity are though.

I could get on board with ending the FED. I really don't know how we would go about doing this though..

  • without justice there will be no peace

  • corporations do not have tongues

  • global warming is here - the repelican party is DONE

  • Amendment XXVIII Now

or, well, something.

I like the 3rd one. Global warming has always been a solid platform to debate from.

I'm not in it for the points, although they are appreciated.
