It’s on its way!
Last week, John Paul Thornton of Decatur, Ala. filed to create a PAC for the Occupy Movement. “PAC” is an acronym for a political action committee, or an organization that campaigns for or against candidates, legislation, and ballot initiatives.
Thornton is an active member in the Alabama Occupy movement. He said he came up with the idea when he was laying in bed.
“[I was] watching [The Colbert Report] and I thought, ‘Wouldn’t be nice if Occupy had a PAC,’ and … like a lightbulb, it came to me!” he told CBS Atlanta.
The money that will be raised can be used by Occupy as a whole, from branches in Huntsville, Ala. to ones in New York City or Oakland, Calif.
And take a look at who they’re thinking of supporting with the money:
Money will also be used for federal candidates such as Elizabeth Warren and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders because of their pledges to get money out of politics.
That’s right, Elizabeth “Nobody in America got rich on his own” Warren (ever hear of Obama supporter Warren Buffett, Elizabeth?), who once wrote, “Having a child is now the single best predictor that a woman will end up in financial collapse” (italics in original), and Bernie Sanders, the only Senator willing to admit to being a Socialist.
Do all of the 99% support these candidates, or is it maybe just the lefty leaders of the Occupy movement who love them some socialists?
