Earlier today, I went down to Occupy Austin to see what was happening with the organization considering the current arrest that has been made. It is clear that the numbers are down, and that the moral is starting to sway a bit. It is also clear that many people are more energized to keeping the movement alive. While I talked with a couple of people it became clearer to me that they do need to take on a Political aspect to their movement. I had posted on this subject earlier in the day. Thus, the reason for this follow posting now.
Below is the beginning concept of what I feel needs to be created to keep the Occupy movement alive. It is rough, and I am sure it needs some more feedback from those involved. So, please feel free to email me at OccupyPolitics@live.com, or add your response here to my posting.
Life goes on…I go on
Occupy Politics is a grass roots organization born out of the Occupy protest movement.
To be a clear voice for Middle America politics that clearly finds the middle ground of the Right and the Left to keep our country strong, vibrant and powerful on a global basis.
An Occupy congress is created first on a local city by city level, then by State level from those city organizations, then a National level by the state organizations. Each entity is to be focused on the issues related to their local needs and desires, while then addressing it on a State and National level as needed.
To create an Occupy congress, participants within the individual Occupy movements will select one person from each of the follow categories:
Other Nationalities that are represented within their Occupy group as needed.
LeTs Bi Gay/Homosexual
Income of less than 25,000
Income of $25,000 to $50,000
Income of $50,000 to $100,000
Income of over $100,000
A spokes person, a treasurer, a director and a Chairman will also be selected from the group.
It should be noted that on an ideal basis, one person should only represent one category, so that they may be able to focus on the concerns and issues for that group, thus not having their time & energy divided up by other category issues.
It should also be noted that no one racial or ethnic group should have a majority of elected members.
The strength of the organization will cause the party leaders from political groups to respond to and work with Occupy Politics. Furthermore, those seeking a political office will address gatherings of Occupy Politics within their area.
At NO time, will an Occupy Politics organization support in any manor via an endorsement, financial aid, financial gift, or an6y other form, a political group or person running for a politi9cal office.
