"There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious—makes you so sick at heart—that you can't take part. You can't even
passively take part. And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got
to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be
prevented from working at all."
The "Occupy" and "Stop The Machine" movements are non-partisan movements. We all deserve to have a system of government that represents the
interests of the American people...Not just the interests of the biggest corporations.
The movement is for ALL Americans who want a system free of corruption and endless wars that change NOTHING...It is not just a bunch of "hippies"
and "slackers" who want everything for free. There are teachers and firemen and laborers and professionals, retired people and students-even service
members who want to have a voice in how they are governed and they are gathering in the streets to take that voice back for us.
It is not liberal, or conservative-left or right. It is about fighting the corruption that infects every level of our government and the financial
powers that fuel it...Corruption that affects every member of our society no matter what political ideology they adhere to. Progressive, Liberal,
Conservative, Libertarian, Socialist, Communist...We are ALL EQUALLY IMPACTED!
Wall Street, big corporations and our leaders have shown us all over and over again that they are either incapable of or unwilling to act in an
ethical manner. They lie to us and steal our money. They are permitted to cause us harm and when they get caught they not only go unpunished, they
are REWARDED with better jobs and more money.
Democrats and Republicans BOTH have let us ALL down. Neither party has done anything to change the things that have gone wrong because they have
learned how to profit from it...They have both been corrupted by Wall Street and corporate interests and they no longer serve the people so we must
work together to change the way the system works...Because it's supposed to work for US
