20111028 Version 3.2 Note: I decided to leave in the ER Road Trip because that is what I would have if I were printing the handouts and taking them around, and because I realized this might qualify for some seed contribution from NYC GA to the IndieGoGo campaign. The road trip is not an agenda item, the wording for the proposed demand to be shared with other Occupy groups is half the agenda, the specifics of the electoral reform act of 2012 being the other half of the agenda, in both cases this is a discussion meeting not a decision meeting.

Proposed for Consideration & Further Development
Seeking $200 per state to take this to every Occupy site
The system is rigged now for the 1% against the 99%. There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be fixed by the simple restoration of integrity to our electoral process and hence to our government, restoring the representativeness and integrity of that government.
Electoral Reform 2012
Whereas the two entrenched political parties have excluded the other 63 political parties and displaced democracy – organized people – with a form of neo-fascism – organized money;
Whereas the U.S. Government, irrespective of which of the two entrenched political parties has been “in power,” has failed to represent We the People and instead legalized high crimes and misdemeanors by Wall Street and various special interests across all policy domains;
Whereas the U.S. national budget is out of control and being used by the two entrenched political parties to reward speculators who contribute to re-election campaigns (with 5% of the taxpayer-funded earmark being the standard “contribution”);
We the General Assembly and all related citizens who place citizenship above party; principle above party; and integrity above the now-standard corrupt practices of both the U.S. Government and the varied corporations that have “exploded” not only the U.S. economy but the global economy,
As of 5 January 2012, that the President of the United States of America and the Congress of the United States, shall introduce and then pass, not later than 15 February 2012, the Electoral Reform Act of 2012. The elements of this Act are not negotiable and will include all ten of the provisions as set forth in the Act now online for public review, discussion, validation, and as desired, revision and extension.
If the U.S. Government fails to enact the Electoral Reform Act of 2012 by 15 February 2012, a nation-wide General Strike will be called for, and We the People will immediately begin to work toward the impeachment, recall, and/or public disenfranchisement of each Senator and each Representative failing to support the passage of the Electoral Reform Act of 2012.
