It takes two to tango. Try each and every PERSON from the government AND Wall Street who has given/taken bribes and/or any other crime.

Why do we have to target one or the other? If someone is murdered by a hitman, then both the hitman AND the person (or people) who paid the hitman will be guilty of murder. The guy who paid the hitman can't just say "OH well you guys should have kept a better eye on me!"

For decades now both the right and the left have been bought and paid for by corporations and special interests (including unions). The current system of legalized bribery (campaign donations) and paid lobbyist have turned our "representatives" into the lap dogs of the corporations and special interests. What we need is real, loop-hole free CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM if we want to break the cycle. It needs to be THE main goal of these protest!!! Other meaningful reforms will follow, but only if we get the money out now! The crony-capitalism/neo-feudalism we have right now will continue until we stop the corporations from using their money to "speak" as if they are representing millions of Americans.

its not just wall street or the federal government that are corrupt- its the whole system- not an individual-

and that system is supported by a whole class of people that are mentally conditioned to believe that they are right. we call them the 1% -- our masters- the rich upper class-

Jesus, can you try harder to write meaningless nonsense?

Unions can bankroll a 3rd party read more http://overthecoals.blogspot.com/

Instead of union leaders pissing away the members' money by giving it to the Democrats who have stabbed the unions in the back when Clinton created NAFTA the minute he got inaugurated the members money can finance a 3rd party that would end globalization. Unions need to bargain for their members by completely excluding all nonunion employees from any benefits when they negotiate contracts.

The OWS protests could influence this process if OWS would nominate candidates for the unions to finance. The OWS strategy that refuses to nominate any candidates is self destructive for the protest.

You need a lesson in finance. But first consider this.

Americans are self destructive for a reason -- read more -- http://overthecoals.blogspot.com/

When 99% of the entire country votes for candidates the voters all know have taken bribes that is self destructive. The bribes weren't paid to benefit the voters. That is a simple fact that the entire country of voters should all understand. The important answer that the entire country needs to grasp is that a powerful propaganda media broadcast system has put the entire country into a trance.

Intelligence has absolutely nothing to do with being the victim of brainwashing. The most important piece of the brainwashing process is what is called being "politically correct". That is designed to make the victims docile. The politicians can and do say ridiculous nonsense but the victims' trance prevents them from addressing that nonsense or the lies being told. When Obama was called a liar during his State of the Union address Obama was protected by the "political correct" trance. Instead of thoughtfully discussing what Obama had lied about and blaming Obama for telling his lie, the congressman was forced to apologize.

Correct, it is an unconstitutional pattern of governance calling for an article 5 convention to end it. Only Americans educated and unified can have an influence on this mislead movement. But NYCGA won't listen, so you have to do it here.--

A effort each evening to create a web conference to discuss Article 5 is beginning.--
