"We affirm that any lasting and workable solution must reach beyond mere politics, that political issues do not matter at a time when our collective voice has been nearly silenced. We believe that the current political climate has caused a paralysis of our Government. We find that our individual opinions mean little when we are no longer being properly represented.

While we who have named ourselves the “99%” may each have our own individual personal concerns and grievances, we know that we must set them aside at this time due to a more pressing need to demand the return of the Representation that has been taken from us. Until such time, we contend that nothing can be accomplished in a spirit of true discourse."

This has been an excerpt from the revolutionary document named "The New Common Sense", a document that goes beyond politics and attacks the root cause of the problems in which we collectively face.

Read it, share it, give it thought:

A new document is really making waves on the internet. It is 20 pages long and the author(s) are remaining anonymous. It is on the edge of going viral and is really quite powerful. As we all know our trusted leaders have been wiping their asses with OUR Constitution for many years. This document addresses this fact and demands remedies, Despite what some may think of the Occupy movement, this declaration is being supported by many in that movement, However many not in their movement embrace it also. At any rate the document speaks for it self and is really creating quite a buzz. It would seem mainstream media is ingnoring this, as I know for a fact it has been being sent out to all of them along with government officials. What is this "The New Common Sense" ? You will have to decide for yourself. Don't let the tone fool you. Some progressives say it seems kind of Tea Party-ish, while some on the right are put off by the revolutionary language.

Should you choose to read the entire document, you may want to read the original "Common Sense" written by Thomas Paine in 1776. He originally kept his identity a seceret. It was much longer than this new document and he published it in a pamphlet. At the time most of the colonists were really on the fence, in regards to standing up to the British and fighting for their independence. The "Common Sense" woke up the people and really got them fired up. The rest is history. Many believe, had he never written that powerful document we would never have won our freedom. Is history repeating itself ? Below is a breif summary, you may read the entire document here : http://pastebin.com/gm2UV08D Or you can listen to it here : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQMtM0LuK_4
