You see those plastic bags people are carrying today in Union Square? They’re approaching the table where they will concentrate on voting with the 20 pennies in each bag. It’s all about how they believe tax dollars should best be spent.
People are getting on board with their votes and those empty tubes will tell the tale in time. Everyone knows the results will be posted on our blog.

…viewing War Resisters League literature.
“Take our twenty pennies and with them, vote where you want your tax dollars to go.”
There were many votes for Education but today most votes were cast for
JOBS, JOBS, JOBS! There were stories shared by folks who were out of work and looking for employment. Note Ms. Gizmo’s JOBS tube. We actually had to remove some pennies to make room for more before the event ended.
