We are the Wall Street Protestors. Existence, as you know it, is over. We will add your Fiscal and technological distinctiveness to our own. Resistance is futile."

umm you guys realize no one works on Wall Street anymore, right? It's mostly apartments, hotels, and shops. At best you may annoy someone trying to get the gym.

Here's one simple, clear point for a start: make lobbying of Congress illegal. Prison sentences for the Congress person AND the lobbyist!

And that should include calling your congressman or sending him an e-mail or a letter, right? No lobbying whatsoever!

Another point. The 535 in congress must not hold the 315 million hostage to their money laundering, money stained nightmare elections. Public service means no medical, no pensions, and far less individual staff ( they just run around grubbing for fat cat dollars anyway), and term limits for the 535 in Congress. They must be made to serve the public and they cannot when the money and need for reelection gwet in the way. Our money soaked election campaigns must end.

great idea; but kill the corp income tax. Just tax cap gains and dividends as ordinary income. Raise the rates on guys above $1 million to say 45% and then up from there to 75% above $4 million.. Make a 20% flat tax with no deductions, no loopholes.

This movement is a great idea. However, the messaging needs to be tighter here. Look at the highly effective Arab Spring. The message was simple and clear...The despot must go (Ali, Mubarak, Gadhafi, Assad, soon to be Saleh, etc); simple message with a clear solution for resolution. Success of this movement will be determined by its ability to affect change. If leaders in this country are not absolutely clear on what one thing has to change immediately, leaders will not be able to act accordingly. Follow up demands can be made (after the movement has gained credibility), but, to ensure that the voices in this effort are heard, one demand has to be isolated and repeated given leadership no wiggle room to get around demands. I don't necessarily have the answer for what the one demand should be (eliminating corporations as persons is a decent start) but rooting out this one demand needs to be polled continuously over the next couple weeks to have a clear demand ready for the 17th.

Other ideas for the one demand: -immediate repeal of Bush Tax cuts for anyone making over $250k per year -close all corporate tax loopholes

The arab spring had no starting demand in most places. Also Assad is still not gone.

i dont understand why we just have to have 1 demand...i think we kind find at least 5 important demands to stand for

According to the polls most people think the number one should be drum roll Revoke Corporate Personhood here's the link https://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=question&id=10150311631011963&qa_ref=qd I'm surprised "demanding that those who stole from the TARP bail-out stand before trial" wasn't one of the options though. I think nobody would have any objections to that.
