“It’s like the Constitution says. It’s ‘we the people.’ We’re the ones who have the power,” he said. “If we don’t like the way that our representatives are representing us as a people, then we have the right to voice our dissent.”

“Some of us Occupys have real jobs that we actually have to take part in,” he quipped.
