We are the 99 percent. We are getting kicked out of our homes. We are forced to choose between groceries and rent. We are denied quality medical care. We are suffering from environmental pollution. We are working long hours for little pay and no rights, if we're working at all. We are getting nothing while the other 1 percent is getting everything. We are the 99 percent.

I am a 27 year old veteran of the Iraq War.  I enlisted to protect the American people, but ended up making profits for politically-connected contractors.  I returned to a country whose economy had been devastated by bankers with the same connections and the same lack of ethics.  It might be cliche by now, but this is the second time I’ve fought for my country and the first time I’ve known my enemy.  I am the 99%.

    I know that several of my fellow far-left radicals see veterans of the US military as the enemy; this is a viewpoint...
