We need to promote someone from our own generation who is focused on these things which so greatly affect us - jobs and outsourcing, affordable housing, social security, talk of the retirement age being pushed off until 74! - most importantly rights of the individual over rights of monopolies - I urge people from every state to put forth young candidates people from this protest to represent us on the things which matter most - we can use this forum to promote them get their name out there - get people to rally behind them - time to step up occupy - OCCUPY THE ELECTIONS!!! People under forty literally have no representation at all. We are generation screwed.

I don't like old people either
especially Bernie Sanders + Elizabeth Warren + Feingold


some fools want to vote out incumbents
some fools want to vote out pro-choice people
some fools want to vote out old people


and some people are willing to THINK and vote for the BEST candidate

Do you believe young crooks will do better than old crooks?

They probably won't be as good at corruption as the older & more experienced candidates are :)

You're right; give the young crowd OJT.

A forum is a great place to bulid ideals, bad place for candidates, get on the calendar of the local GA where they are running, if people don't like you, find someone to support.....here's a start though

sure wasn't expecting that, hmm, you know I wasn't saying people didn't like you, what I'm saying is that if someone wants to run for office, they should go and meet the people, not try to do it here, people have a "feel" about them and if you are not an "in person" person then you should find someone who is to support, sounds like you are a people person, and I hope that you understand the wealth problem in America and get in office, interesting method you have for winning people over I must say, but if you say it works for you, well I'm not there...

I know 90% of the people here hate Lyndon Larouche, but here are five young people from his organization that are running for congress:

At least one of them has won the democratic nomination for her district.
