I see this “Continental Congress” as a step toward Direct Democracy. This is an opportunity to practice this form of government. The United States Of America has never been a Democracy. Instead We were “given” a government where “Representatives” made Our Decisions for Us.

This 99% er site has the potential to evolve into a real vehicle for People’s Government.

Item #1 on this group’s list is item #1 on my list, ending corporate personhood. There are dozens of groups coming together around this issue, red staters and blue, tea party folks and occupy activist both. My main group in www.movetoamend.org an O.C. chapter. Check em out. Democracy is more than voting, a lot more.
