I have put together a statement of what I have come to beleive are the eight top beliefs and wants of the Occupy Movement. I refer to it as “Eight to Awake” since the purpose is to wake up United States citizens and members of both Federal and State Governments about how the 99% can be properly represented to improve America and the lives of all our people. A link to the document is at the end of this post.

The media, the public and the politicians understand the frustration of the Occupy Movement but are not sure of exactly what believers in the Occupy Movement believe and want. I'm sure there are many more beliefs and wants than you see in this document. However, these cover the top issues and state clearly what we want as solutions in a manner I believe the media, the politicians and the public can understand.

In addition, if Congress does not act on our wants, then Operation RAIN (Replace All Incumbents Now) can be implemented to replace all incumbents in the 2012 election.

I don’t know how to get this out as a petition or in what form would be best. Heck, I don’t even use Facebook! If you feel as I do that getting this out to believers of the Occupy Movement so that it can get to the public, members of State and Federal Governments, and the media and you have a way to help get this out, please let me know. I'm open to any ideas and comments.

Thank you

People are already taxed as a percentage of their income. Capital gains are also already taxed.

this looks great, thank you for your effort. You should be sure to bring this to the attention of the people like myself supporting the 99% Declaration here https://sites.google.com/site/the99percentdeclaration/
