It may be a democratic petition, but I would sign it even if it was Republican.

Please take every opportunity to get productively and proactively into the face of "our" government. Voice your thoughts.

With every expression of our descent about what is going on in congress, going on in our government and going on in this country, it does not matter who the recipient is, what matters is that whoever receives it knows that it is in support of the 99%. What matters is that it is clearly expressed. That many voices are taking the time to make issues heard.

We can also support not-for-profit organizations to reduce our dependence on current unethical organizations.

What I feel needs to happen, because changing a mass belief system is unrealistic is that we need to use our money to invest in a liberating energy source. Because if you can't get them to occupy or boycott, if you give them something that is convenient, they are all for it. I will have you reference this open letter to the world, http://www.pureenergysystems.com/obituaries/2004/EugeneMallove/LastMessage040513/

When we lower our dependence on an outdated monopoly. We will seize to give it power. From there we can find who we are as a nation, instead of finding ourselves and our children as debt slaves to a corpratocracy.

If you want to know exactly where capitalism and our government has crippled us Here is a fact sheet to my favorite documentary showing step by step exactly how our democracy has misstepped. New, made (11/11/11)

Thanks for the post. People are beginning to wake-up ( I believe ) and they need all of the good input that is out here to feed their thought processes to spur the creative juices and inspire deductive reasoning. This is exactly the kind of material that needs to be circulated widely. It is also a good thing to take part in a process even if you don't believe that it will do any good. Do it for practice if for no other reason, change can come from unexpected places.

Let's throw our weight around something BIG! We need campaigns financed by citizens. That is the ONLY way, the ONLY way, our representatives will answer to us. Read the following article and let's make this OWS's sole priority. Imagine our country under this system. Problem solved.

Folks will be spread thin. lots of family time during the holidays. lots of parties. once they spend all their money and realize there still isn't a lot of it coming in, they'll re-invest their time. it will be really important to have the structures in place by the spring so the resurgence can be effective.

You are without a doubt correct. It just makes it that more challenging to keep the Train a rolling along. Sokay I like challenges.
