People are always talking about reducing the gov't and all that happens is the GOOD stuff the gov't does gets reduced, like Social Security, Medicare and corporate regulations.

What DOESN'T seem to disappear are Income tax, taxes on the 99%, inflation and gov't spying. The environmental and banking regulators may be bought out and useless, but you'll notice the IRS is here to stay. I say get rid of that first! No income taxes. Period!

My concern is even if you abolish this one, another will rise up and probably worse since the moneyed interests will lead it again, this time with ALL their rules in place (Pretty much what we have now).

It's pretty obvious the only reason for Homeland Security is for DOMESTIC spying, so the elite can keep an eye on the enemies they know they have.

I suggest new slogans:
shame on democrates; shame on republicans;
No Bourgeoisie party, only people`s party
Nationalize industries, implement income limit law.
dewelling is a basic right; health care is a basic right.
No basic rights, no peace

Down with slogans, down with soapboxes!

Four legs good, two legs good!

Less than seven words bad.

By which I mean; people use slogans to incite the stupid-ist kinds of mass action. Slogans have a place as an intro, as a joke, as an attention grabber or a proverb. But they are too blunt to solve real problems, and to actually get people on side. Real talking is better, real communication, not this frenzied stuff.

Please Please, don't damage your country, make a permenant set-in if this is the solution, you can do what is needed but don't fight cops, don't burn cars, don't damage your country, you're gonna pay to rebuild it again and thing will be going worse and worse.

We second you that the american soldiers shuldn't die for the others conflicts, NO for Billions Of Dollars for war, there must be an equality between all the american civilians.

The protests in Cairo (and in Spain) inspired the protests here in the U.S. The "Occupy" protesters here admire the Egyptian protesters immensely. Thank you for posting your advice!
