I will be in NY for S17 with my two sons. I hope to leave NY with hope that this movement will be recognized as the beginnings of a revolution.

"All we have left is Revolt" because the Corporatists have gained control.

If you haven't watched Bernie Sanders with Bill Moyers yet I highly recomend it. Sanders admits the Senate is controlled by Corporatism and I agree that publically funded elections are necessary.

We need a very public national debate on money influence in government. I know and agree with the argument that a person should be able to spend their money any way they desire, however, I disagree that anyone should be able to spend their money on politics because Equality must be accepted when it comes to We, the People, governing ourselves. Having more money than someone else to spend on political issues completely goes against All Men are Created Equal.

You got the link to Bernie Sanders with Bill Moyers?

Is this the link? http://billmoyers.com/content/preview-bernie-sanders-on-what-money-does-to-politics/

Peace is the path to the future.

Yes, that it. He admits to Moyers that the Senate is bought.

Peace is the path to the future, and love brings peace.

Don't forget to report back after the protest. We must build A Bridge To The Ground out of this website.

In a week, I'll be bridge building and fighting Partisan Powers.

Let's insist on having the debate whether money should be allowed to influence government. I don't care what the Supreme court has ruled, this is the issue that the masses would wake up for if we get it started.

I'll certainly report back after the protest.

There's no debate. Money needs to be out of politics 100% just like a man should be able to do what he wants with another man's buttocks if they are two consenting adults in private. These are truths, not opinions up for debate.

There's no defendable debate but money is not out of politics yet. These truths would cause those that benefit to attempt to debate by pointing out that the Supreme Court has not only ruled on Citizens United but also that money equals speech.

This issue should be hammered with everyone talking about it!

I will be there with OTS. I will help you build that bridge, and fight the people who are trying to pervert this movement. Odin
