it turns out to be impractical for you to live on the
streets and in the parks to protest, you can still protest right
from your home. Let me suggest one way you
could do this: you could spread the word that I'm
a candidate for President of the United States in 2012 (if you
think I represent your thinking and would make a better
president than any of the other candidates, that is.)
And you could vote for me, or someone like me, in the
next election. The process of informing others
about my thoughts and ideas would serve several purposes:
my announcement, follow the links, see if you are willing
to take some time to think and reason through this
thoughtfully and carefully.
would offer a more focused agenda to your protests.
I think if you review what I have to say, you will find
that I am in alignment with what you want.
would give you and others an opportunity to deepen and
expand your own thinking about what has happened to
our country, what the causes are, and what can be done
about it. At my web site are not
only my contributions but those of many others as well.
would be a bold action that the oligarchs in power would
not be able to kill or control. They could take me
out or close down my web site or the internet, I
suppose. But that wouldn't stop us if we were working
independently in order to work together.
There are others who could take my place. They
can't kill an idea whose time has come.
all I could receive would be a few million votes in the
next election, it would scare the hell out of the
oligarchs and send shock waves though the consciousness,
given that I am not famous and yet could receive that many
votes without their money. It would inform everyone that the system
in place is not a prison; that by thinking outside the box
we all can make a real difference; and it might offer
courage to some of the more outstanding men and women in
our society to speak out, run for public office, and/or
otherwise contribute what they have to offer in new ways
for everyone's benefit.
