Posted 2 years ago on Nov. 30, 2011, 3:21 p.m. EST by Marlow (1141)
This content is user submitted and not an official statement

It's in our DNA to Fight for Liberty, the Pursuit of Happiness, and yes.. PROTEST against Supression! .. It's what Sets us Apart from all other Countries , and every other Nation that has yet to Thrive as we have for nearly 300 young years.

We Became who we are NOT by allowing the Kings and their Power of wealth to control us as a People. .. NOTHING has Changed since we fought for and Won our Independence!

... For now, the 1% thinks their Wealth is more Powerful than this Country.. as they have enjoyed the Abuse that Money offers ..

WE LET THEM take and Take!
..WE believed they were only pursuing the American Dream, and We were just a Few giant steps behind, hoping to catch up someday..

But Reality has Set in, and the Middle Class has nearly vanished, and those in authority were asleep in their Counting Houses... and the Americans of our Forefathers....Woke Up!

... This is the point, we are NOT United to merely complain, we are UNITED to show how strongly we Feel about Messing with our Country! and,.... Our Representation in a Democratic Government.

... We are UNITED , and have NEVER been Divided so much as to Take it for too Long.. And THAT is What makes the 1 % FEAR us.

.... Be Afraid , be VERY Afraid! This is the United States of America, and WE are THE PEOPLE!

We need a better way to fight back. protesting is like throwing spit balls at an elephant. We need a real revolution in our thinking or nothing changes.

FIGHT THE CAUSE - NOT THE SYMPTOM Read “Common Sense 3.1” at (Http://www.revolution2.osixs.org )

With as many as there are that are Occupying Around the Globe, i think it makes a DENT in the Heads of State.. We are NOT going away, and we Sure dont intend to do anything that would stop the Process we Started.. Anything other than what we are doing, would be what stops it.

Keeping Faith in a Peaceful Movement, Gives us Power in the LONG run.

"Through their state legislatures and without regard to the federal government, the people can demand a convention to propose amendments that can and will reverse any trends they see as fatal to true representative government.", - President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

I think it is time ows and others organize better and form conventions for Article V changes. Unity in message and directive will make you a more powerful entity. The more powerful your entity, the faster you will get the changes.

I have figured out how to take car of the deficit. Eliminate all interest charged since the collapse of the economy. Decree that the banks have to work for their money. Watch them collapse or not. Stop all foreclosures and reinstate those that lost their homes since the collapse with a 3 percent interest loan. All Credit card interest is regulated at Libor rate which is .26 percent per month for all credit cards. In order to change additional interest rates & fees the banks have to have it approved by the supercommitte. Eliminate the interest that one agency of gov't that owes another branch (why should the taxpayers charge themselves interest?) 1/3rd of the debt is between gov't agencies.

OK!... and Citizen, one thing..

Just how do we get the Job done? Wouldnt we need the Support of those in Authority to do what is right?

I think THAT is one of our biggest problems at hand. What is already established.

We need to be involved on a First hand basis.. We need a branch 'Of the People' established by the 99%. We need EYES and EARS on the HILL.

and the whole world is supporting us against our struggle against our oppressors- because they know that not only is this government suppressing its American population- but the rest of the world as well. training web page http://tinyurl.com/7rvpv43

My cousin helped take a fort without a shot being fired - not one. My cousin. Ticonderoga.

My grandmother's grandfather was a preacher, and he did time in a southern prison, for helping slaves escape - to freedom!!

A portion of my blood does nurture the very soil that is OUR Nation.

Those who would sell their own children's future as well as ours for a better seat in the stadium will not be allowed, with their hedge fund derivatives, and their sub-prime balloons, and their corruption of our political system, to continue to rob the people and drive our nation into moral, philosophical, and economic bankrupcy.

Their day is DONE.

CHAOS is coming mutherfuckers!!

yeah I got into it with another clown - I just hate it when someone insists it's my country - get a job! or whatever to support the status quo. So - anyway - that argument is where that piece came from - edited a bit for this post.

Let it be known that your statement of "Kings and their Power of wealth to control us" is false. If anything, the colonies were extremely rich. Most of the founding fathers had everything to lose as they were rich men. The first crop of tobacco that was produced here, small as it was, was worth a fortune itself. American lumber and tobacco made this country extremely valuable. Don't compare OWS to the revolution, it's blasphemy.

in 1776 the colonists didn't fight against the country of Britain! and yes in 1776 many of the colonists were filthy rich and greedy - the 1 % - we fought against the 1% in America who had all the representation where the 99% normal people had no rights.


the same fight that we have again today-! training web page http://tinyurl.com/7rvpv43

[-] 0 points by HeavySigh (227) 2 years ago

Um no. Almost all of the founding fathers were literally loaded. We did not fight against the 1% in America, what history book are you reading?

[-] 2 points by ilovecars (36) 2 years ago

Um yes. Do you really believe that the history books, printed in the usa are, an accurate representation of what really happened?
