Whether you call it the world financial structure, the U.S. culture of waste, or the ability of the common man to make a decent living, the system is broken. It's time for the common man to go on strike. Join or support the March on Washingon 9/12/2009.
About VoteStrike.com- VoteStrikers don't classify themselves with a label, but are engaged in what could be called "the people's sovereignty movement." They challenge the legitimacy of the US Supreme Court, or any other arm of government, "to bestow upon corporations the immense governing authority" implicit in the conferral of constitutional rights. They base this challenge on a solid founding principle; no governing entity may grant away the people's right to a functional republican form of government. They contend that excessive corporate power has undermined this basic right of the people.

There were a couple of police officers standing next to a cruiser which had been positioned perpendicular to the road in order to stop traffic on Madison St. The crowd quickly turned towards the cops and became more violent: starting with throwing trash at them. A guy right in front of me was the first to hit the car, kick it hard, and I immediately grabbed him back, reacting in fear of the line he was crossing. But...

Our lives in the middle-east do not need to be written by terrorists. There is a third force, which so far has played only a small role in determining this long, ongoing conflict: us- civilized, peace-loving humanity. I believe WE are waking up. WE have been the victims in their raging wars. WE are the middle-ground, secular, led by the left. WE can stop these terrorists.
