If there is one idea above all the public in America would Overwhelmingly support it is Public Voting on Federal Referendums. Occupy should push hard for this. Direct Democracy would interfere with today's Political hierarchy and empower the population.
A huge majority of the population is disgusted with politics. Especially after Syria, people are rallying together with some common themes. 'Let's fix America, instead of attacking other countries", "The people are powerless", "Our govt ignores the will of it's people", "Our govt does nothing to help us", "We need to make changes", etc. The vast majority of people would support their intervention. Forcing things to happen in our "Do nothing govt".
Imagine if the public voted for Annual Federal Referendums. Brought forth by populous petitions signed by five million voters(or,#?).
For instance the "2014 U.S. Federal Referendums"
Term limits for politicians(no more career politicians).
Public funding for Federal Elections.(funded by a tax on Wall st transactions) Campaigning limited to Six months only.
Regulations/Restrictions on private ownership of Press/MSM news entities.
Those seeking to become Public Servants must do so to serve their people. They cannot be affiliated or influenced by Political parties, Think tanks, coalitions, councils, commissions or foreign entities, etc.
Balanced budget amendment
It is illegal for the govt to surveil any citizen without due process by a transparent judical process.
Far greater oversight, regulation, transparency and record keeping of lobbying activies.
