The list is quite simple:
America can no longer tolerate the current system, which has been an open wound to the global economy for far too long. The Federal Reserve can no longer be allowed to exist. Its purpose is fraudulent and should immediately be dismantled, and its members placed under review for inevitable legal recourse. The act of lobbying must be made illegal, as they are the purveyors of the corruption, which has swept Washington as of late. Those in office should be made to hold their finances (whilst in office) to public audit, allowing every man, woman, and child in this country to track their income and spending in both business and personal matters. Accepting money or gifts from a corporation (twice removed or otherwise), either before or after being in office should be punishable by immediate seizure of said gains and imprisonment. A Political position should also be a nonprofit one. Once elected, officials will be placed in state/nationally provided homes, where they will reside and be fed till their respective terms are complete, after which they may return to their former place of residence and occupation before being elected. A cap must be placed on all offices of power, limiting men and women, as Presidents are limited from being career politicians, to a term of no more than two to four years. Being a politician should be an incredible inconvenience. One should want the position for the purposes of instigating change, not for financial gain. Financial Market CEOs should not be allowed to sign off on their own bonuses, specifically at the expense of their clients and companies. Matters such as corporate income should be decided by [all] shareholders, no matter how small their company stake. Change the policy that allows American corps to place “made in America” tags on items that were manufactured on ‘American soil’ in foreign countries, by foreign workers. Reform tax law, doing away with personal income tax, maintaining income tax on companies making more than a certain level of income each year, while taking an equal percent of sales tax from everyone. You will be taxed by the extravagance and luxury you live by. Corporate tax deductions should include environmentally positive production, maintaining a domestic (complete) workforce, and pouring corporate profits back into the company for the sake of expanding and upgrading.
As I said, the list is simple. The enactment is where things get a bit… complicated. The rules have been put in place by the government to protect these One Percenters, and the rules cannot be altered as long as these “elite” few control the men and women who make up the laws for this nation, after all, who do you think wrote the legislation that our faux officials put into place? As long as politicians and corporate elites exist, the rules will never change. They rule the roost. Perhaps it’s time to introduce a few foxes into the hen house.

If all else fails,just post it on their facebook page,or actually go to your local Occupy,like I do and share the knowledge.
You would be amazed at what they know and how intelligent the group is.



Yeah, that is a good point. I have taken to watching their live stream in New york and the guys they have speaking are pretty damn smart. Also, the few interviews I have seen on ATS are pretty good.

As opposed to the even fewer I have seen on the news.

One I heard on the radio was laughable... It was beyond obvious, the censorship.

They were interviewing this one guy locally at Occupy Dallas. He started out saying he was wearing a suit because of the impression being painted about them being just a bunch of no good hippies, in weird clothes...

Then he started to go into the reasons for the occupation, the demands, goals etc..... They cut him off two sentences in and went immediately to the next story. Two sentence about what OWS was really all about.... and they cut it short... As if they realized... Oh wait... This guy knows what he is talking about... RUN!!!

It was so obvious, I had to laugh.

So either my soul is now worthless... or I am just beyond hope.

Geez Op, you make it sound like the OccuBaggers are terrorists holding the country hostage.
You ain't helping their cause any.
The only thing I ask of them is to make sure they clean up after they are done.

A list of demands? hahahahahahahahah That is FUUUUUUN-NY! And, by chance, who is going to "listen" to your grievances? Satan??? All our problems are NOT their fault. Sorry!!! Fact is....it's OUR fault...for letting things go so far. Actually, if we're gonna put the blame on someone, let's blame our parents....for not taking a stand, against corruption, when THEY had the chance. Now that your arses are in a sling...you want to put blame on the ones we 'think' are responsible? Oh, so it's the bank's fault that people BORROWED, and agreed to pay back the loans...PLUS interest...but failed to live up to their end of the deal? hahahahahahah Does ANYONE know what a CONTRACT IS???? It's the bank's fault that you couldn't help your shopping sprees; spending money you didn't have, on things you couldn't afford???

Maybe your grievances should be a FAIRER CONTRACT! Other than that....you are S.O.L. (sh-t outta luck). They're NOT going to give you a 'refund'. YOU breached the contracts....not them!

You know the really funny part, the B.I.B.L.E. warned us of the dangers of borrowing....but people skipped over those parts; they were too religious for all that mumble jumble!

Wow. While I tend to agree with you about contracts being contracts and need to be honored as such, there is so much more to this than defaulted upon mortgages.

The entire banking system with its fiat currency, fractional reserve banking, derivatives, insider info, shorting the market, credit default swaps and on and on and on.

1) I think that the bankers who helped themselves to our money and taken advantage of the American people, should be brought before a judge.
2) Politicians should not be able to take money from corporations and lobbyists. They are so focused on money that they are no longer representing the people.
3) The rich people who are screaming for tax breaks so they can create more jobs should have to show what jobs here in the U.S. they have created since we started this trickle down policy. I believe the jobs they are creating are going overseas.
4) Banks need to start helping the peoiple who saved them. Help with small business start up loans, refinancing of morgages for people in danger of losing their homes,students trying to go to school.

I know this is a crazy idea but wouldn't it be nice if overnight the U.S. Government printed a new dollar and made all the old money no good. Then make everybody exchange their money and if you can't show where and how you got your money, you can't exchange it. Any money held by old rich families have to show how their family earned that money and if it was gotten illegally, they lose it all. I know crazy idea with a lot of flaws.

What do you think the Occupy Wallstreet movement should be asking for?

Post it here and i will compile the results and we will discuss the importance of each.

I look forward to this



Let's remember what the OP requests and stay on topic.

OWS (might as well get used to the abbreviation) is going to discuss our ideas. So let's keep discussion down to a minimum on this thread and supply our ideas.

I think the basic, fundamental, underlying demand should stay really simple:

START TELLING THE TRUTH.

And the next demand would be:

CONTINUE TO TELL THE TRUTH.

To my mind, what all these abuses and excesses have in common is dishonesty. It has become totally OK to lie to each other, our parents, our teachers, the police, our employers, our employees, our supporters, our investors, and the citizens of this city, this state, this nation, and this planet. What we need now more than anything is a decision to start telling the truth.

As far as this thing taking off without a plan, it wouldn't be the first time. Look at the last election, everyone was walking around talking about change, but when you asked them what kind of change, they gave the deer in the headlights look. Just change, you know?

Anyway, my thinking is this: for the movement to encompass the greatest majority of people, the demand(s) should be simplified to a lowest common denominator. I don't think a great long list is the way to go here. Whatever it is, it needs to be the main artery, one thing that will effect change on other levels.

All donations to all political campaigns must be through a independent fund manager system where the politicians never know where the funds came from.

If the politicians don't know what money came from who or what companies how can they then be beholding to the person or company.

The politician then can never be held to vote for or against any bill just to please someone that gave to there campaign if they can never tell who gave what.

Wake up you have a lot of learning to do... and if your quoting the bible, then you need to read more too and get out of the house a little and walk around your local Occupy place.
