“Social Security, for example, has never been anything more than stealing from us when we are young and vital and then giving back to us when we are too dead to use it.”

As a senior who would be living under a bridge without Social Security Benefits after Wall $treet collapsed my 30-year business, I can assure you you are incorrect, as can millions of other indigent Americans who have been tossed away as worthless because we are not rich.

Need Alternative to facebook; interactive map; easy connect among groups

.

1)  Facebook is an invasive, commercial enterprise that uses personal information to profile users sold to advertisers.  People who know better will never log onto facebook for any reason.
.
2)  Occupy is building its own 'facebook' for the 99%.  Using facebook makes its 1% owners wealthier.  Check it out here: http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2011/12/occupy-facebook/all/1
.
.
4)  You can also find possibly useful info on forming Wikis, blogging, podcasting, etc. by browsing around on links found here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dnL00TdmLY
.
5)  An interactive map seems essential for far-flung networking, with contact info, useful to help direct family and friends to local Green Party connections in other places.
.
6) What can folks do to help the Green Party get on State Ballots?  Which States are certain, which are in flux?  Congrats on getting Ohio!  Perhaps a 50-State click-on Directory that gives current status reports, State by State, and actions currently underway in each State, with how to assist.  I sent to all on my Ohio list, but they were Occupiers and from Move-to-Ammend, not Green Party, because I had few there.
.
7) Maybe at some point a clear description of how to develop an effective Write-In Campaign for Jill in States where the Green Party will not be on their ballot?
.
8)  And Jill can be nominated for Americans Elect. Candidates for other parties are not excluded. Get Greens to sign up and nominate her!   http://www.truth-out.org/keep-eye-wild-card-americans-elect/1325269835  and  www.AmericansElect.org
