    get beyond party and think people.  OWS has it right.  We need to be the 99% not the 54%.  Maybe this will help you:

    there's a quote by W. H. Murray in his book "The Scottish Himalaya Expedition" (1951), that I want to share with you:

    “Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way.

    I learned a deep respect for one of Goethe's couplets:

    Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”
