It is almost here! There are three things I want to tell you about an incredibly important event for you, your family and our nation:Stop the Machine: Create a New World.
1. It is going to be huge and historic. Thousands have already signed up to join us in Freedom Plaza in Washington, DC. You are going to want to tell everyone you know you were part of this. You are going to want your children and grandchildren to know you helped ignite the change to a new world.
2. This event is critically important. Our nation is at a crossroads. We need to get off the wrong path and on to the right one. We need to end the dominance of government by the political and economic elite when it is obvious that the people can do a better job. We need to create an economic system where we participate, a government that responds to the people and a nation that puts the people’s needs before human greed.
3. It begins soon. In less than two weeks thousands will gather to begin a multi-day encampment that builds on the revolts being seen in Egypt, Tunisia, Span and Greece, as well as Madison, WI and Wall Street, NY. The time is right for this moment in history. The beginning of a massive movement to create a country that reaches its’ ideals, that becomes the more perfect union that then nation has always sought to be.
People will look back at this event and see it as the beginning – the turning point when the people demanded that the country move from militarism and war to diplomacy and cooperation; from funneling money to the wealthiest 1% to sharing the nation’s prosperity among each of us; and from environmental degradation to the planet’s renewal. It is our responsibility to get this Nation on the right track. You need to be part of this. Join me in Freedom Plaza starting on October 6.
