I am involved in the Occupy movement because I consider myself one of the people mentioned in the phrase “We, the people.”
Last week, in response to those questioning his plans to have police remove the Occupy Wall Street protesters from Zuccotti Park, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg declared that “the Constitution doesn’t protect tents…it protects speech and assembly.”
In 1968 he was an Olympian at the top of his career.
The proposed amendment would specify that corporations are not “persons” protected by the Constitution’s Fourteenth Amendment.
Like the Tea Party, Occupy Wall Street is an expression of a deep-seated discontent about the nation’s direction, or lack thereof.
