Today is May Day … an important day for the occupy movement…hopefully there will be no unfortunate incidents. Watch closely what happens in both New York and in San Francisco. We’ve come to a time in this country when opposing sides are digging in and frightening the mainstream. The occupy crowd,while mostly well intentioned …scares the average person… who may in many ways side with the general gist of their agenda. Let’s hope tonight’s nightly news will not be filled with angry young people creating a dangerous situation…or police forces ready to make a statement. There’s a much better way to forge change… a real, responsible approach that can be well accepted by mainstream Americans of all political stripes…and could and should make positive change happen.
Extremists to the left…extremist to the right… But middle American is left out of the action ….it’s time for the average, middle of the roaders to have a say! It’s time for mainstream Americans to figure out what we want to happen…and bring it to the forefront by good old fashioned thoughts and actions. Here’s what really should be happening…let’s open the worlds eyes to the real America. Lets organize and prioritize our issues.Let’s launch a mainstream push up the middle that respects all sides…forges consensus..culminating in a list of priorities representing the American middle…created and organized by the American middle. No super Pacs needed or wanted. There are millions of really fine people with much to offer to the American people. The power of face book and twitter is still in it’s infancy..not for much longer…the Twitter-Book revolution is real!
Here’s a rough draft….A realistic,livable minimum wage…equal pay for equal work- tax fairness for the working class..tax collecting from our mammoth banks and corporations..no more off shore tax dodging allowed…affordable health care for every American………Reign in states rights that threaten our friends and neighbors … end unequal justice…tax the underground economy so everybody pays their fair share (national sales tax?)..let loving couples engage in marriage..and let women control their own reproductive choices…
After thoughtfully conferencing over the next weeks and months…..we can spell out our priorities …the middle has the most power..we just don’t have leadership..but its staring us in the face. The Twitter/Book 2012 revolution front and center. Can middle Americans forge consensus? If we are not happy with the political reaction to our demands…we simply close the country down…thats right….we are the real bosses..and the twitter/book internet power flares its powerful engine. We pick a day in the future..say the day after labor day,Sept 4th… Remain non-violent always…we simply extend the long weekend off if the politicians are unresponsive .Secretaries call in sick to work, bus drivers don’t drive..doctors and lawyers catch the green flu…bank tellers no show..waitresses sleep in….nobody leaves there homes! No cars on the road…no grocery shopping..nothing. We close the country down..give all of time to refect on what labor day should mean…paying fair wages,not allowing big banks to profit off the backs of the disadvantaged…so many ideas would work. Imagine the awesome power of the people if the mainstream middle could forged consensus!
We have tremendous power at the tips of our collective fingers. Power is in the numbers, all women should join this mission, and men too..all Americans should come along,older folks,blacks and whites, gays and straights,Democrats and Republicans..were all on the same team. Let’s show the “powers to be” whose really in charge…its not the superPacs! …IT’S THE POWER OF THE PEOPLE. ! Time to tell both extremes whose in charge,what we want..and go out and get it..weve got the numbers..lets use it before we lose it!! Organize on twitter/book…the times need us to step up and shake its foundation forever. …fairness can be rendered…just need good thoughts coupled with good people with passion..now that’s the American way!!
