It's the American Spring. Here is our chance to join together and help restore our republic. Corporatism has inserted itself between us and our government. Nonviolence is the most powerful path. With our numbers, we will use nonviolent direct action to bring awareness, to bring the cozy corruption out into the light of day.

STOP THE MACHINE. BUILD A BETTER WORLD.

Let's make this a memorable spring.

It's time for people to control corporations rather than corporations controlling people.

This is great, getting the word out like this so that people have time to prepare and participate!

Thanks. Please spread the word! Any thoughts as to how such events can receive maximum support from across the country?

That has been one frustration I have had with the form this movement has taken. There are real advantages in a leaderless structure, and in many ways it has played out well so far, but I think one weakness is getting everyone on board for maximum turnout at specific, important events; the problem of coordination.

I don't know the solution, even though I have given it a lot of thought. I do think though that if we go to DC and don't get a really large turnout, it might be better not to go at all.

Our antagonists would have a field day with that. In fact, that would probably be the only way to get the networks to cover us. I'm afraid they'd do it just to show footage of the low turnout.

There is such potential for huge turnout if groundwork is laid and goals of that action are clear.

[-] 1 points by GypsyKing (9727) 2 years ago

I know - one look at the recent (and rare) poll by Pew shows that very clearly, but the coordination problem has stumped me so far.

It has to be approachable to middle America. The specific cause of protest has to resonate with them and the actual protest itself has to feel approachable.

You are the worst paid troll on the forum. You're so lame.. I can't believe they pay you. Hard to find good help these days in paid troll industry I suppose.

[-] 1 points by FreeDiscussion5 (12) 2 years ago

Interesting that YOU would take the time to comment on the worst troll on here. Being as bad as I am at it, I would think you would find no need to recognize my failures. However, for some strange reason,,, I would bet money that you actually think I'm a far superior troll and you HATE that fact. The reason you hate me so much is because YOU know that I tell the truth. I post only comments that I know can be backed up with,,,,,,,, yes,,, even government statistics and historic information,,,,,,, that just KILLLLSSSssss you to see. I have been banned MANY times on here and I come right back,, banning me again is a waste of time. So why would I be banned if I'm the worst troll,,, not worthy of payment? BECAUSE I KICK YOUR ASSES and you know it. I would bet I may be one of the main reasons that OWS is a failure. Lots of people have moved on because of the comments I post that reveal the secret liberal agendas.

So,,, you need not reply to this. If you do reply,,,, you will have given noticed that I kick your ass every single day,,,,,,, and,,,,, I dont get paid to do it. This is fun playing with fools. (dont reply,,,,,, dont do it,,,, you will send the signal of how great I am) Have a nice day supporting a 50 year failed liberal agenda where your rich democrats get richer while your poor liberal democrats get poorer every single day. (dont do it)
