I am the 99%

Posted on Updated on

Typical media and political spin - Ridicule and discount the message.

I am the 99%.

And I am proud of each and every person who has taken their time to express themselves.  A message such as this would have gone nowhere if it wasn’t true.  Keep on keeping on.  They may not  listen but we will.  There is power in numbers and it’s about time we took our power back.  Here are some things you can do to support the people: we are the 99%.

1.) Donate food items to your local food banks.

2.) Donate winter coats and blankets to shelters.

3.) Foster a pet, who may have lost it’s home.

4.) Support local small business whenever you can.

5.) Send a message to the bank behemoths, by moving your money to a smaller local bank.

6.) Stop investing in the stock market.

7.) Write your congressmen.

8.) Register to vote.

9.) Support local movements.

10.) Drive less, use less gasoline.

11.) Show your support, yard signs, sticker whatever.

12.) Stop using your debit card and credit card.  Pay with cash.

13.) Don’t let yourself become silent. Do not allow yourself to be belittled.

Remember it’s all about the mighty dollar and your vote.  Don’t give in.  This peaceful movement is going exactly as Gandhi quote says:

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then

they fight you, then you win.”
