2009 BLACK FRIDAY SALE! BUY NOTHING!
The real war is not between the left and the right. It is between the average American and the ruling class. If we come together on this single issue, everything else will resolve itself. It's time we took back our government from those who would make us their slaves.
A general strike is a way for people to express disapproval of and/or discontent with the actions or policies undertaken by their government in their name. An effective way to reassert collective power.
THIS IS A VERY GOOD IDEA.
Because nothing will change until we take corporate money out of politics. Nothing will improve until our politicians are once again answerable to their constituents, not the rich and powerful. Let's set a date. No one goes to work. No one buys anything. And if that isn't effective -- if the politicians ignore us -- we do it again. And again. And again.
HOW ABOUT THE DAY AFTER THANKSGIVING?
Let's get the show on the road.
