Ok. The election is over. The Democrats got a large majority of electors, a strong majority of the popular vote, more House members and more Senate members.
Occupy must acknowledge that the most powerful tool for progress is political power.
Hopefully our “new” President will be much stronger on liberal / progressive issues.
Clearly, we missed this opportunity to chuck most of the tea potty detritus so the House is still controlled by the koch-norquist-tea potty cabal.
In the Senate, any progressive move to pass a constitutional amendment, or to get money out of politics will be blocked by the filibuster But NOW – today – we have an opportunity to help the United States Senate enact liberal / progressive legislation – by urging our Democratic Senators to terminate the filibuster TODAY. And we must act NOW.
PLEASE see the details on our OWS working group page
