On September 17, 2011, the first step toward a changed nation brought forward the idea that the resources needed to address the economic and political difficulties faced by the United States of America have been locked up by the federal government, politicians, corporations, and the wealthy. Those resources accumulated for more than three decades as the citizens of this country allowed their elected national representatives, courts, national businesses, and banks to contend that a government protective of the needs of the accumulators was best for everyone. Occupy Wall Street and the protests, encampments, and actions that have taken life since its genesis raised the veil, revealing a country hamstrung and gridlocked in unemployment, foreign adventures, legislative stasis, inflated fuel prices, haphazard economic development, and uncivil debate on social issues.
I researched and wrote on political change movements for years as an undergraduate and graduate student at Johns Hopkins University and taught political science at several colleges before some life events moved me on a different path. I also have a law degree from Case Western Reserve University. I have continued to read, observe, and think about political change over the years.

[NOTE: By default, a PIE graph showing 'Contribution to Grand Total by Table Row Members' is the third type of graph shown. When that does not make sense (like in the example below) there are directions on how to make the PIE graph NOT appear.]
