Occupy has protested everywhere.
Newt has called the 99 percent "destructive, hostile and anti-civilized". He even went as far as saying "there is no 99 percent".
Romney told one protester "America is right and you are wrong".
And the list goes on......
Well, news flash..... WE ARE AMERICA
WE ARE THE ONES THAT ARE HURTING
WE ARE THE ONES THAT FEEL THE PAIN
WE ARE THE ONES THAT KEEP THIS COUNTRY GOING
How many of us don't have enough to eat, don't have roofs over our head, don't have our basic needs covered?
The protests brought publicity, but now it is time for action.
I am proposing that the Occupy movement does exactly what the Tea Party movement has done.
I am proposing that we all come together and start our own political party.
Together, we have the strength of millions. That type of strength cannot be ignored.
Let's move our protests to the political arena.
In the next few days, I will be starting a PAC to help US, the 99 percent, break into politics. We won't have the backing of the rich. Corporations will not flock to our cause. BUT if we can effectively get our message out there, we will have millions of us who can organize, campaign and possibly even donate 1.00 per month to get our candidates elected. WE CAN GET OUR CANDIDATES IN THE PUBLIC ARENA!
In order to do this, we will need a board of directors, national managers, workers in every state and much more. We need people who would be willing to be coached and run for public office. We need people who can talk to people and help them understand. We can put so many people to work, in good paying positions. We could effectively change politics in this country.
We are tired of living hand to mouth. We are tired of paying for the rich while the poor get slaughtered with "entitlement cuts". We are tired of our unfair tax system.
Let Do This!
I am more than excited to hear your thoughts on this idea. If you agree, disagree, want to be involved, want to run for office or anything else, please email me with your thoughts, your ideas, etc.....
