The 99% are not submissive to the 1%.

The whole system seems to be hanging by a thread and the 99% sense it at every turn. When we look to our supposed leaders they seem void of any real solutions. Can that really be deliberate? Or are the problems now too numerous and too big too control or overcome. The 99% get frustrated because we see and hear solutions all day and night, but nothing ever changes. So it's time to realize that it's going to take 100% of us, each doing what they can, to fix it.

The great barrier to implementing the technical solutions which we now have at our finger tips is the political structure. Perhaps I'm naive to think that a new independent party could pose a serious enough threat to the status quo that they'd bargain in good faith, but that is what the spirit of OWS / We Are The 99% is to me. And that's really what I want out of the 99% Declaration. The National General Assembly is our way of saying we have a table too, we'll come to yours and you'll come to ours, and we'll begin moving forward. Honestly, I think it would be fun for everyone. So let's get together and make this NGA, the Third Continental Congress, the most significant political event in at least a generation and not waste our time suffering in pain. We're not going to ask the owners for permission. That's just so last millennium : )

For the kids, We Are The 99%

Only a tiny fraction of the "99%" are as pathetic as you are. Please stop trying to speak for me.

at the very least, play by the rules.

Don't hold your breath, The 1% club would rather watch the world starve then to settle for anything less than MAXIMUM PROFIT.
