Vote, but do not vote blind! To Occupy the Vote is to do so as informed clear headed reasoned individuals. Avoid the things that can cloud judgment:
- Hate is a most powerful antigen to reason
- Labels, especially when placed on others, tend to distort the truth. Avoid using labels to describe others or speak of whole groups of people as if they were one entity.
- Blame is only of any use if it establishes a case of cause and effect, otherwise it's just a tool to divert attention away from the solution.
The power of a collective is lent from the individuals. We can only stay strong as a collective if we keep from oppressing the individuals among us. This is done by respecting the rights of others. In a democracy you are able to vote to usurp the rights of the minority. In order to form solutions that last we must remember why we are a republic and we must find solutions that respect the rights of everyone.
If this sounds reasonable to you and you would like to help fix the world, contact us at iWill@OccupyTheVote.org and ask how you can join the team.
