Let’s take a day that is all about consumption and make it our own, and let’s make it loud and clear that we will not support the corporations that destroyed our economy and undermined our Republic.Instead of a “Buy Nothing Day” we’ll have a “Buy Local Day.” Instead of buying a bunch of useless crap, let’s instead go out and help the poor. Volunteer at soup kitchens and host toy drives and do the other charitable things that the government refuses to do. A season of giving instead of a season of buying.
