Time to get money out of politics with tax payer funded elections and not donations from corporations and wealthy donors. Our representatives are up for sale.

People have the right to let the 1% of this country know they are fed-up with this inequality economics.

I don't want a hand out & neither do they. I agree with affordable healthcare and education for all citizens, and that corporations should not be given the rights of people without the accountability for their actions.

Our government isn't working, "for the people".! People had about enough of the way our Government is being run from top to bottom. Polar opposites instead of looking out for what is best for all. Lets get people back to work !

The Lord Jesus Christ commands us to work to make this a better world not just through putting bandaids on the wounds created by thoughtless people, but to stop the sinning to begin with. Some see the biggest problems are not the sexual one so many work against, but economic and political. OWS is people speaking up to make us notice the greed, corruption and harm to people and the society.

QUOTE] Katrina, All candidates would receive equal funding from tax payer funds and would be required to attend a series of televised debates. Right now when you buy a product from a corporation part of their profit goes to political contibutions that you may disagree with but in any case have no control over. Politicians of all parties seek the favor of these corporations and individuals and are influenced by these people. I think the tea party people and wall street people would be able to agree on this.
