  2. To: The General Assembly of Occupy Bexar County.
    (Please forward to coordinator or facilitator)

    Regarding: The ability of American voters, of every party, to control their own government.

    Call to Action: It is critically important that you support a Voters’ Rights Amendment to the Constitution of the United States to transform its government into one that is responsive to those who elect it, rather than to the corporations and wealthy elite who purchase the people’s representatives.

    Background: The bipartisan outrage over the Supreme Court’s decisions in Buckley and Citizens United has led to a number of proposals to reverse them through an amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The best known of these is the effort by Move to Amend, which restricts constitutional rights to natural persons only and which disallows the equation of money and free speech.

    Problem: The Move to Amend proposal is a great start; however it does not go far enough. In fact, after a long and difficult amendment process, it only returns the electoral process to where it was before the court’s decisions, which wasn’t so great for the People of America.

    Solution: The Voters’ Rights Amendment (USVRA) includes the Move to Amend proposal, but goes further to clearly establish that the right to cast an effective vote is an inherent right under the Constitution. In addition, it provides for a national paid voting holiday, a national hand-countable paper ballot, and a process for the people to have a more direct role in the formulation of public policy. Finally, it mandates voter registration and prohibits voter suppression.

    Consequence: The USVRA will result in a transformation of the U.S. government into a more representative democracy in which the power of money and corporations will be curtailed and the power of the people will prevail.

    USVRA requests: (1) a vote by your general assembly to support the USVRA; (2) encouragement of other Occupy groups to support the USVRA; (3) a link on your net pages to USVRA; and (4) encouragement of your individual members to show their personal support at the USVRA website and on the Facebook page (Voters’ Rights Amendment US).

    Contact: JasonJames81@gmail.com of Occupy Long Beach for more information and to confirm your support.

    I believe that my novel [information attached] could be useful to the Occupy Movement, which inspired its re-release as an e-book with a new cover. It was initially published as a paperback before the Wall Street economic debacle became obvious, but it remains relevant to the current situation. Please share the novel information with your members. Here’s hoping that it proves to be a useful symbol.

    Remedy: D.E.T.O.X.X. America
    (Politics/Finance // Mystery/Suspense)

    Amazon E-book / Novel $2.99

    What’s the difference between reality and fiction?
    Fiction makes sense.

    1% versus 99%
    Grossly Excessive Income Disparity
    Living Wage Movement
    March on Washington
    Politics: Money Power versus People Power
    Corrupt Financial Interests
    Collapse of Stock Markets and Banks
    Unique Love Affair
    Space Station Sabotage
    Signals from an Alien Planet

    Reality? Fiction?

    “An allegorical novel that intertwines the volatile economic and political landscape of America with the cultural conflicts of an advanced alien race….In a clever play on worlds, the discord faced by the Pisceans [aliens] is eerily comparable to events occurring in America.” ~ KIRKUS REVIEWS

    Author Harold Kuester taught philosophy and religion in a city easily mistaken for the one where the March on Washington chronicled in this novel begins. He has a long-standing commitment to “promote the general welfare” and “establish justice.“ Wishing the Occupy movement every success, he offers his novel, hoping it will inspire courage and perseverance, as well as offering a good read.

    Have you heard about those greedy carpetbaggers at Fine Silver trying to destroy the working-class neighborhood around W. Elmira/Belvin/Cameron? We should occupy their parking lot.
