WE THE PEOPLE
What do we the people want?!
We want equal opportunities, liberty, and justice for all.
We want what should and could be an American reality,
not just an American dream.
We want good schools and affordable college education.
We want good fire and police protection for our communities.
We want a viable transportation system.
We want a healthy environment
We want clean energy sources.
We want jobs.
We want affordable housing.
We want a fair tax rate system.
We want affordable health care for all.
This is the richest country in the world and we have over 46 million people below the poverty line!
We want all people to be treated with respect and fairness.
We want a healthy and thriving environment.
(And by the way, it is expedient for the powers-that-be to pit environmentalists against the "rest of us," because it is useful to divide the 99%. But you know what? Environmentalists want jobs too. And the "rest of us" want a healthy environment.)
It's not really about the 99% and the 1%. We want what works for ALL OF US.
We want those that are in positions of power to listen to what we're saying, and not listen only to big money.
We want legislation that will GET MONEY OUT OF POLITICS.
We want reliable retirement funds that do not dissipate because of speculation, unscrupulous and greedy practices of Wall Street money people. And we want adequate legislation to regulate such activity. And we want Wall Street crimes ro be investigated and perpetrators prosecuted.
We want a Congress that actually does the job it's elected to do; debate the issues and pass important pieces of legislation that benefit people and the environment.
Essentially, we want the health and well being of people and the planet to come before profits.
In recent months a number of citizen actions have caused companies to revise or drop policies that were not 99% friendly: Netflix, Bank of America, Verizon, Internet control legislation.
We have shown our power. Let's not stop!
