- Cover 100%. I think Occupy should represent 100% of Americans. Singling out 1% seems to be non-inclusive and tends to vilify that small group. After all, we are all facing this economic disaster together.
- Choose the right 1%. If Occupy wants to keep representing 99%, choose the another group to exclude. To me, the 1% that should be excluded are career politicians. Career politicians don't seem to get it. There should be term limits to keep elected officials from holding the same office for multiple terms.
- Create distance special interest groups. Organized labor's involvement in the Occupy movement will be polarizing. To me, organized labor only represent the 11.9% of American, not 99% or 100%. Occupy doesn't need organized labor or any other formal special interest group.
- Create distance from current politicians. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) has tried to capitalize on Occupy Wall Street by expressing sympathy for the cause and giving a speech at the New York gathering. To me, all career politicians are part of the problem that Occupy is trying to address.
