Occupy Wall Street is a leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders and political persuasions. The one thing we all have in common is that “We Are The 99%” that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%. We are using the revolutionary Arab Spring tactic to achieve our ends and encourage the use of nonviolence to maximize the safety of all participants. –Occupy Wall Street
“Occupy” is a global movement that allows “every citizen” a right to have a voice. Last year the fed-up got fed-up & decided the best way for others to hear the “real issues” affecting our lives & world was to show up. They showed up, they stood up; they showed, they were the majority & we do have a voice. Ever since then, the minority, the wealthy have used their mainstream media, their Super-PAC (Pre-paid Active Congress) to shut the movement down. It’s funny, the movement that was compared to the Suffrage fighters, Civil Right Fighters, and “Tea Party” movement. In the end was dismissed as a bunch of unorganized “rebels” who should be seen as criminals not “Peaceful Change Initiators” Hmmm, It’s funny, four years ago this same 99% voted for change, waited and decided to help with the change, isn’t that a referendum for “yes, we can.”
Why is the “Occupy” movement important? Actually, that question should be what is the difference between the current “Occupy” movement & the “Tea Party” movement? The answer, the amount of dollars in bank accounts & political representation financed. Both movements want to save “constitutional rights”, reduce taxes & reign in Government. The difference is in their philosophies. Hence, the “occupiers” represent everyone & the “tea-partiers” represent the elite. The Democrats & Republicans are threatened because there is another player to weaken their dominant inside track of “pay-to-play” politics. Hmmm, also, recall hearing about the end of those “major influencers” in the political process as well. Aren’t the “occupiers” just keeping the political-playing field leveled? Aren’t they bringing in, for every lacking dollar, a person with a voter’s card.
Why is the “Occupy” movement important? It’s a chance to represent in this election year for “We the People” after the “Republican National Convention” & the “Democratic National Convention” failed to do it. The “#S17NYC” year anniversary convergence should be welcomed & considered the “Peoples National Convention”. They are meeting peacefully in a major city with an agenda of issues & solutions for the population. They have a theme of education, awareness & celebration. Their delegates are coming at their own expense to represent every single citizen in this nation. Isn’t this the political process based on the “Constitution” the political process envisioned by the forefathers of this “United States of America”. Why is the “Occupy” movement important? It is important because this nation is still a “Democracy”.
