Occupy isn't really in any danger of being co-opted by the democrats. Individual Occupy members need to form tactical alliances for the November elections. Our long term objective has to be reforming politics to make it work for the 99%. Our tactical objective should be to support candidates that embrace and promote the Occupy philosophy. Oppose all republicans because of their advocacy for voter suppression, gun rights and other right wing issues. If we, Occupy don't engage in tactical alliances were aiding the right wing, that opposes virtually everything that Occupy stands for. Let's talk about this.

:) This is a exert of a discussion started by Peter Grear on the Facebook Discussion Page.

I'm using my last post to the thread on the discussion page as my opening post here:

I've read over that report and while some of the states that have passed these bills make it difficult to obtain an ID the NC bill, from what I remember of it, does not. I'll have to reread over the bill as it has been awhile and I didn't take notes, but the ID, from my recollection:

1) Would be free
2) Would be advertised
3) Requires easily produced documentation

I do agree that a lot of the bills in other states are overly harsh but the NC bill specifically does not come across that way.

When interpreting a law the intent and results are essential considerations. When it comes to voter ID, the intent of the republicans, led by ALEC and bigotry is to disenfranchise as many of the 99% as possible.
