100,000 Strong Standing with Occupy Wall Street

    1. Sponsored by

      Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee

Out-of-touch Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor said he is “increasingly concerned by the growing mobs” protesting on Wall Street and across the country. Mobs? That must be what Republicans refer to as the middle class, or maybe the millions of unemployed Americans across the country.

As Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters, “The message of the American people is that no longer will the recklessness of some on Wall Street cause massive joblessness on Main Street…”

Send a message straight to Eric Cantor, Speaker Boehner, and the rest of reckless Republican leadership in Congress.

Sign our petition right now standing against Republican economic policies that hurt the middle class and working families while protecting loopholes for multi-millionaires and Big Oil companies.

To:
Pledge
As Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters, “The message of the American people is that no longer will the recklessness of some on Wall Street cause massive joblessness on Main Street…”

It's time for millionaires, billionaires, and Big Oil companies to pay their fair share.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Sadly, the only way the government is going to listen is having someone who really understands with power, or sadly it might come down to a American born Terrorist will be our hero in making the government do something.

      I turned on the news and they were reporting on a protest...I thought it was in the Middle East until they said it was in California. We should be showing the world that it is ok to protest and instead our sttate and local governments treat we, the American governments treat us like we are the enemy. I ancestors fought in the Revolutionary war against oppression. Has anyone read the Constitution lately?

      I am an American who can no longer remain silent. It sickens me to see fellow citizens viciously attacked by police across this nation. You cannot use the filmiest of reasons to strip away people’s rights!!!!!

      The First Amendment guarantees freedom of speech and the right to peaceably assemble. Our Founding Fathers must be turning in their graves as thousands of protesters are beaten, arrested and denied their rights!!!

      You cannot evict democracy!!! The Occupy protesters will change the course of this nation.

      If you can't be there, hear is some ideas to show support;

      If you have a PC, email and can record video from your screen do so from the live video feeds provided below if you see something worth it to do this and you can email it to them. They cant take that footage in this way. There are many free programs online to do this and most PC's have it built in now days.

      I made a sign specially to have a sign for use on my own property out front in the same way as an election sign would be posted. They do accept donations to this cause online. The image is transparent so you can print it on whatever you like. I used 2 coat hangers cut & bent and a clear folder taped shut. Be creative - Show some love and support. I am pointing these petitions out to the message boards on the live streams as much as possible without spamming them.

      The links:

      Spread the word! Fight the power!God bless and thank you brothers and sisters.
