OKLAHOMA CITY -- The November 2 general election are one month away and political activists are increasing the efforts to rally supporters to the cause.

Enough is Enough was the latest rally at the State Capitol Saturday morning. The group said they are just everyday people who want to see change.

Supporters gathered to voice their concerns on everything from education, justice to jobs in the economy. Proponents said the purpose is to defend and protect the rights of all citizens.

For Janice Timberlake who's worked as a nurse for 30 years, her first priority is healthcare.

"So many elderly are suffering because of health care and not being able to afford different benefits and things that's happening with them today," Timberlake said. "I'm just praying that the government keeps everything in the right perspective so we can take care of those who take care of us all of our lives, you know?"

About 30 people showed up to the rally Saturday. The rally's theme was, "A flyer states change came to America with the election of Barack Hussein Obama. Continue the change that we started in 2008."
