Subject:   Re: [september17discuss] Re: Proposal on the agenda for tonight's GA is the place for discussion on the refining of this statement.  There are a lot of people on this listserv who are angry at us and who are have stopped participating in discussion on this list at all because the process of crafting this statement has bombed their inboxes with so much stuff.

I think the statement currently lacks a little in focus.  I don't know
when you are meeting to discuss this, so I will post a suggested
reformatting here.  I am building off what I think is a great line in
the Sept 29 declaration:

We declare that no true democracy is attainable when the process is
determined by economic power.  Our current two-party system does not
represent the people, as both parties have sided with economic power,
and hence against democracy.  From diverse backgrounds we the people
have united to oust the global financial powers that have bought our
governments and who hold us hostage to their greed.  We call for a
government of the people, by the people, and for the people.
