11. The corporations have power because we give them power.

We let them buy off our elections because we don't vote. Low voter participation in the United States is a black mark on our democracy. Yes, occupy everywhere, and that includes the ballot box which is probably the mother of all occupations. How can we be claiming to take the country back without encouraging political involvement? I haven't seen a single Occupation denounce voter participation against politicians that don't represent the 99%. Who that is and who that isn't is for each person to decide, but I for one, have a pretty good idea of who the problem pols are and I'm willing to stand up for candidates that oppose them, but not at the cost our handing our country over on a platter to the people who have ransacked it in the first place.

Throw the bums out by the ballot, end the corporate game.
