In the 60's I fought for my Country,
In the 70's I marched, camped, protested, got struck with batons, got gassed and arrested.
We didn't always have a direct conducive message,
We didn't always have leaders that actually represented us or all our specific views,
We really didn't know how to make the changes we sought but we came out in force to demand change and took it to Washington, DC.
The reason I am telling you all this is the point of fact that Occupy Wall Street is EXACTLY how our Anti-War/Equal Rights/Economic Rights Movement started...
ORGANICALLY! ALL OVER THE COUNTRY! Over Social/Economic unrest, against the Government, and the Corporations, that were sending us to die in East Asia; while letting the country economically and domestically go to hell and be picked clean by the Corporations.
They never sent their own kids, but they did forcibly, through selective service, send us.
They sent us to die for wealth.
They sent us to die for politics.
They sent us to die for their own God damn egos.
Make no mistake it was never about Democracy in South East Asia, It was about covering Frances ass once again and then attempting to gain a Far East outpost within the sphere of Communism for their OWN Economic gains!
In turn, they IGNORED domestically WE The People of The United States and our Constitutional Rights to Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness through
Economic Suppression and Inequality.
Sexual Suppression and Inequality.
Gender Suppression and Inequality.
Racial Suppression and Inequality.
They did it to allow the Corporations to RULE the Country, just like they tried in the 1860's (1869 Black Friday) and again in the 1920-30's (Teapot Dome among many other scandals)or allegedly in the 1940s-50s trying to overthrow FDR and the Government and install a Corporate Oligarchy.
Here we are full circle and the Corporations, the Wealthy, and the Religious Fundamentalist are once again attempting to take control of our Government and create a two class system...
Excuse me did I say attempting?
THEY HAVE SUCCEEDED this time and we are way behind in trying to thwart their ugly designs.
The point of this little history lesson is to attempt to get through to ALL OF YOU that:
SOCIAL/POLITICAL Change may start organically and be fractured and originate in multiple venues BUT,
IF YOU REALLY WANT THINGS TO CHANGE
IF YOU REALLY WANT TO HAVE YOUR VOICES HEARD
IF YOU REALLY WANT TO HAVE A CHANCE AGAIN AT ECONOMIC FREEDOM
Then you Must do two things!
Y0U MUST DO THESE TWO THINGS!
1. VOTE ALL THESE SONS OF BITCHES OUT OF OFFICE, LOCALLY AND NATIONALLY, MAYORS, GOVERNORS, THE LEGISLATURES, IN THE HOUSE AND IN THE SENATE VOTE THEM OUT!
GET GRASS ROOTS PEOPLE IN THAT BELIEVE IN "HUMANISM", EQUALITY, FAIR TAXATION, FINANCIAL REGULATIONS, DOMESTIC TECHNOLOGY and MANUFACTURING AND FAIR TARIFFS.
2. *******ORGANIZE A NATIONAL PROTEST MOVEMENT AND OCCUPY WASHINGTON, DC. THE CAPITAL, THE ELLIPSE THE ENTIRE DAMN TOWN, AND DON'T LEAVE UNTIL THINGS ARE REDRESSED.****************
TAKING IT TO THE POLITICIANS AND MAKING THE PROTESTS, BOYCOTTS AND SHUTDOWNS SO HUGE, IN THE TENS of MILLIONS, SO THAT THEY CANNOT IGNORE US ANY LONGER,
THEN AND ONLY THEN CAN WE TRULY AFFECT CHANGE IN THIS GOVERNMENT AND IT'S POLICIES OF CATERING TO THE TOP 2% OF THE COUNTRY AT THE DETRIMENT OF THE REST OF US...
REMEMBER THE THIEVES OF WALL STREET COULD NEVER HAVE DONE WHAT THEY DID WITHOUT FIRST POLITICIANS THAT WERE IN COLLUSION WITH THEM TO DISMANTLE REGULATIONS PROTECTING THE REST OF THE ECONOMIC STABILITY OF THIS DEMOCRACY. NOR COULD THEY HAVE GOTTEN A FREE BAILOUT WITH NO ACCOUNTABILITY WITHOUT THE COLLUSION OF THE GOVERNMENT AND THE FEDERAL RESERVE.
OCCUPY WASHINGTON NOW!
VOTE THE BUMS OUT WHEN YOU CAN!
