Open letter to the Occupy people

Dear everyone occupying everywhere (in the US):

Great.  I am all behind you.  I am glad you are taking the initiative to bring important matters to the world’s attention. 

There are a couple of other things you could do for me.

One is to…

register.

The next is to…

VOTE.

Depending upon where you live, this may not come into play until next year, but it will matter.  A lot.  And yes, I know there is an argument to be made that voting will not really change anything, but at least we can try.  There is really no other option: as long as the politicians believe we cannot or will not take political action, they will do nothing.  Unless you want armed revolution in the streets, this is the best course of action (while still protesting, of course).

Think about it.
