I've seen some news about the possible release of a list of demands from the Occupy Wall Street on July 4th, 2012. As far as I can tell, 2 representatives from each district are to be chosen to create and release a list of demands.
This has the same intrinsic problem as the electoral college. We have to trust our representative to vote for us. A better way to handle it would be to hold a vote that all citizens residing in America can attend and get there own personal voices heard. This way, each individuals voice is heard and their concerns validated through majority. You know...Democracy?
If we really want to show people what Democracy looks like, we should start coordinating a nationwide vote now.
