Why I’m Attending The Occupy Houston Protest On Thursday, October 6 At 8:30 AM At Market Square Park
(Update– 10/06/11–Here is my post on the event today.)
I’ve worked ever since I graduated college.
I willingly pay all my taxes.
I vote in every election.
I write a political blog so I can be part of our democracy.
I spend much of my free time reading and following baseball.
Maybe I’m the conservative.
Maybe my friends are the conservatives.
Maybe the Occupy Wall Street folks are the conservatives.
We just want a decent society where playing by the rules and working hard is rewarded.
What we don’t what is a nutball free-for-all of corporate criminals owning our politicians, endless war based on lies, and treating people like crap because they may be gay or of color.
This is why I’ll be attending the Occupy Houston event you see described below.
I think we need to be—working together—the source of our own hope and change.
The work of freedom and democracy is up to each of us.
