I like it.  I think you should try to get it passed at the GA so it can be official.

i'm sure most of us will agree with the statements the DCCC is makingon behalf of the OWS 99% movement in this online campaign, and it'snice to have support, BUT, imo Democratic Party campaigns like this arevery dangerous to our long term growth: 

See this: http://www.dccc.org/pages/occupy

The corporate media is already building a solid narrative labelling usas the Democrat's Tea Party.  While some people may not mind thatlabel, this is a divide and conquer propaganda strategy that we mustavoid.  Some people say that our movement is so diverse that we don'thave to worry about co-option, and there is solid evidence that thismay be true - certainly hope it is.  However, as someone who hasintensively studied propaganda and psychological operations, and hasalso invented the 99% meme, i am incredibly sensitive to divide andconquer propa issues. I worked with over 20 people in coming up withthis statement proposal, please consider it:
