DURec+ it if you're in! OTC = Occupy The Cliff!!!!
"Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country!"
Obama had said something like this during his speech, didn't he?
He told us that the work we've done up to the election must continue if we are to move forward.
The "Fiscal Cliff" is our test!
We have to be occupying right at the front gates of the capital or on the great lawn... but we must be there as big as the Million Man March!
It has to be the case that when the Repugs backed by their Plutocrats and Thugs walk into the Oval Office wanting to cut something we need so that their rich backers don't have to pay their fair share, we have to make it so that Obama does not stand alone, but pulls back the curtain and says: "the people appear to have a different opinion on that".
We have to be there. Our jobs as citizens is to make sure our elected officials do hear our voices... and in his speech, he said that he will listen.
This is our time.
History has given us that chance to learn the hard lesson of not trying... of only waiting... and through it we learned what can be done when we act.
The Fiscal Cliff is not not the practice run... it's not the test.
The Fiscal Cliff is the real 10 alarm fire that we must run in to... we will only know we are ready when we run in.
The proposal: Occupy The Cliff
We get 1,000,000+ people occupying the great lawn right when they are hot in negotiations for as many weeks leading up to the votes. Always building more and more.
History... Divine providence... The great fates... have all thrown down a challenge!
And how do we reply, folks!

1. Message: Don't bite the hand that feeds ya
The 1% are feasting from the work of the 99ers.
They need to be aware of who feeds them and keeps their kingdoms working: We, the workers.
All we are asking is give peace a chance. The 1% are making war on us and we'd rather just have peaceful thriving communities.

2. Great turn o'phrase there!
And you know what?
This last election shows that we have the numbers.
We just have to keep our juggernaut moving... enough to make the 1% back down --- again.
