The message of Occupy Wall Street has been heard and the 99% are now answering back. Yes, there is a solution and we believe this is it. Our governmental institutions draw their authority from the consent of a sovereign people and we now seek your informed consent.
The National General Assembly of the United States (NGAOTUS) is a developing Independent Establishment of the Federal Government (5 USC §104) that will serve as a sustainable National Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank. Lawmakers have proposed creating such a bank and allowing the bank to borrow tens of billions of dollars to capitalize it. We offer another solution, one that is based on Public Banking and in direct partnership with the Department of the Treasury.
It's time for the People to Rise!
We the People, the Citizens, of the United States will not sit idly by while we bankrupt our grandchildren. We will not accept being looted and plundered to enrich a group of criminal oligarchs. We will not stand, being lied to by public servants who are supposed to have our interests in mind. We will no longer be divided by a corporate sponsored popularity contest, masquerading as free and open elections. We will no longer remain silent.
As a lasting testament to both our resolve and foresight, we will create our own alternative, parallel institution to which we can legitimately invest our faith and consent, and alter our government in a profound and fundamental way. We are seeking a more participatory form of government, a form with accountability, transparency, and social purpose at the very core of its values. We propose a radical reformation of government and how corporations interact with it. We propose that we start here, now. That begins with earning your informed consent and that’s a task we have prepared for.
