For the first time in my life I feel a genuine pride in my country. When I first saw occupy Wall Street on the news I said, "occupy what?". The first slogan/sign I saw said "Get the Money Out". Get the money out of Congress/politics. Now that is righteous. Get the money out should be the battle cry on everybody's lips. That is the one voice we need. Get the money out of politics and what we need will fall into place.
I have never voted nor paid very much attention to politics. I did not even know the definition of a Republican and a Democrat. Never cared. I remember when I learned about the Electoral College. I walked away thinking my vote didn't matter. I just left it to others and went about my own busy life. Looks like too many of us did.
It does not matter whether you buy into the new world order or not. The fact is there is something very wrong with the way the world is going. Everyone knows it. Everyone feels it. Everyone is frustrated because we cannot put our finger on the problem. Everybody's needs are so different. Take the temptation of politics and the needs will be met. One loud voice from everyone. Get the money out. What is wrong with showing up at a protest with signs that all say the same thing. Put our differences aside and get together with one loud voice.
After all, in the final analysis we all want and need the same thing. What would Mohammed and Jesus do?
