I would like to do my part by providing talking points that I wish OWS could use in their National press coverage.
- Please spread the word that our Individual Freedom and Liberty which the founders and other patriots spilled their blood for; have been taken away from us by the rich, big business, and banking laws!
- Please push conservatives to show us where in the Constitution it mandates that Capitalism should be the economic system that runs this country? Really push them on this because there isn’t any such reference!
a. My understanding is that Capitalism was the only economic system at the time that supported ideals of individual freedom and liberty. However, those ideals have been taken away from us by banking and transnationals. It’s time to re-evaluate an economic system that is equitable for all and Not just the rich.
- Define the rich, business and banking elite as immoral and not Christian or God Fearing, and that Money is the root of all evil!
Refer to the wealthy elite specifically by name and point that they all have One Thing in Common; They Love Money, they Worship Money! Call them out e.g., Limbaugh, Gingrich, Boehner, Koch Brothers etc.
Americans need to be reminded that the wealthy elite of bankers and big business reject Socialism for everyone else except when they need help.
Socialism didn’t invent four million people in foreclosure, Socialism didn’t invent ten trillion dollars in bailouts, and Socialism didn’t invent Wall Street’s $160 billion bonus pool the year after the crash of its own creation.
Push to define the issue for the 99% to push Congress to enact Roosevelt’s Second Bill of Rights
Remember “Whoever Defines the Argument Wins!”
Push the mantra that the Government and Conservatives believe: a. Government by the corporations for the corporations b. In Money we trust c. Greed and selfishness is the new way of life. d. Political power triumph over nation and people well-being e. Massive Wealth accumulation at all cost. f. The rich goes free when the poor goes to jail.
