Not all conservatives take the stance you just described. I see many posters here that agree with much of the Tea Party agenda, I also hear them telling you that if these protestors would just smarten up some, we would back your play...

Are you listening?

If we want change, these protests will need to turn violent.......just saying


If these protests turn truly violent you will see a kind of change that you aren't interested in.
Where people now debate over whether our freedoms exist in theory or in fact you will find martial law.
If people believe that the powers are so against the people than that ought to be more careful in baiting such a beast.

People often end up being arrested for protesting in American, read your history books! How a movement handles being arrested either rallys the public to their cause or turns the public against them.

I don't think the Tea Party is shaking in their boots at all, in fact if this movement would pull its head out of where it currently is and look around clearly they COULD gain the support of the *fat tea partiers*

These protestors are being duped by the creeps funding their protest. They are the VERY fat cats the protestors are protesting.

The actions of the protestors in the coming days will determine if the country gets behind them or people begin to defend themselves against the likes of them.
MOD EDIT: Reaffirming Our Desire For Productive Political Debate (REVISED)



-How England did and and for what reasons would be a violation of the U.S. Constitution. The authorities in England said they were all rioters, and they were not. A few trouble makers mixed into a large protest crowed does not constitute a riot.

-I don't think they have much in common with the tea bag crowd. The tea bag crowd wants to hand this country completely over to Wall Street by way of totally deregulation of Wall Street based on years of disinformation that has been dissimulated from billionaire right wing financed so called news out lets and talking head AM radio. Right wing AM talk financed by phantom bottle water companies for example.

-You must be talking about Soros. Yeah he's a Bolshevik Marxist. I'm with you on the source of the financiers behind the protests. Along with Al Gore and GE who want to piggyback the Cap & Trade fight on the back of a more populist class war far fight. So I'm with you when one the point, the backers of the protesters are creeps, and that the protesters are being duped by creep who have a lot of money invested in Wall Street. there is a lot of progressive insurance money floating around there for sure along with GE dollars etc.

- As far as these people getting the most of the public behind them, and that's done by way of most people joining the movement in their own way even if it is just in spirit. GE "brings good things to life" he-he so they I am sure they have their security personnel managing the crowd from within. Big companies like GE have their own intel departments staffed with people who use to work for agencies like the CIA. They will also make sure that NYPD inlet and USG intel do not try to incite the protesters from within using "hooligan" tactics like the British authorities did in England with the same type of protests a few months ago so to turn puplic opinion against the movement.


I truly believe these protests at the top are really about pushing the Cap & trade agenda forward. There is a lot of money to be made by the promoters of these protests. However with that said, I support the grassroots collective spirit of the protesters. The street reason/s for the movement. A pro Main Street America movement.

Your FIRST post you are going to come out and call regular board members trolls? Wow, that is really arrogant no matter what opinion you hold or side of the issue you fall on.
Now, regarding the politcal awareness of the hippies. Such sweeping statements are rarely accurate and to make one adds your ignorance to your arrogance.

A poster above you talks about how in the sixties they stopped a war with their protests. If they had really stopped anything would be even be where we are today?

I was referring to the civil rights protests, I saw them and how they played out. What does England have to do with it?

I think the current generation is not very versed in how a peaceful protest works. MLK even had the freedom riders sign a contract promising to be non violent no matter what happened. Many were arrested.... some down right brutalized. That is what woke American's up and rallied them to the protestors defense

Watch the footage of cops sic'ing dogs on the protestors and get back with me....Read OUR history

These protestors have much to learn, and it seems most are not even willing to listen to those who have seen change making protest with their own eyes.

While I applaud the (imho misplaced) idealism that some involved in the protests have shown. The U.S. despite its flaws is not Libya, and "winter is coming". This aint no Arab Spring.

How can a pro Wall Street deregulation agenda promoting wild uncontrolled oil and gasoline speculation etc political mob who are all about handing this entire country completely over to the billionaire job exporter crowd using misinterpretations of the U.S. Constitution in doing so possibly have anything in common with a crowd that wants to simply save Main Street America and American jobs?

Your view of a conservative is very stereo typed, just as many are stating and seeing only stereo type liberals. I don't agree with how lots of liberals would *fix* things but I see their well intended passion to make a better world being misdirected.

Wall Street is not the problem or the enemy, Wall Street is the by product of a corrupt Government and FED. Put pressure on the right enemy and many conservatives would get involved

The occupy wall street thing is cool and all, but enough with the internet hyperbole people. Get down there and do something, but PLEASE stop typing about 'revolution' on the internet.

Buy a bus ticket or thumb your ass down there.

Cin,

This is the declared enemy of The Occupy movement. This is who they are targeting and all Americans regardless of political affiliation, background should all get behind because they are the reason why our nation is collapsing, why no one can get a job. We have found a mutual enemy and hope that all Americans join up.

Some of us are utilizing the world wide web to recruit and to spread the message. For a movement to grow people need to be told of it. This is why people like me are home on the web and not down there.

I've seen labor strikes in Michigan growing up that had people out picketing in sub zero weather for hours. free hot coffee and doughnuts with worm up tents do a lot, and I'm sure those amenities are well within Soro's and GE's dot many org sponsored budgets.


And most all the people didn't grow up in Libya who live in America. It;'s all relative to your exposure of what once was. and where people think things are going. perception spawn feelings and feeling motivate.


There's former CIA who are now working for the backers of this movement like GE who specialize in political movement promotion and management. I can smell it. So trust me, this movement is going to grow in warm or in cold weather. These protesters will Valley Forge on just wait and see. Because they have their George Washington's to keep them inspired, their big boy backers. They are backed because there's a pot of carbon credit gold at the end of this rainbow for the backers. The hidden motive behind this anti Wall Street movement, and of course those carbon credits will be traded....... on Wall Street.

What's with all the naysayers?

These brave Americans are risking all they have to protest the selling off of our Constitution to the highest global multinational conglomerate buyer.

Whatever it started as is now irrelevant, whether by corporate funding or not.

We want our country back, and, if you agree with their method or not, you have to respect their attempt.

Well I just got a new job, it is a pretty good one too. I am not discounting anyone that can not, they have my empathy and I hope things change for them. I have to ask though, how many are not willing to accept a job while unemployment benefits keep being extended or become willing to work in a different field or for a different wage? I didn't have any more difficulty than usual finding a decent job when I was unemployed. In fact I quit a job in Feb, went back to work in May, found a better job by July and now a GOOD job by Sept....

I am 50 and have no college education. Just sayin... it CAN be done. My area is not so affected as others and I am not tooting my horn I am just showing that being consistent pays off.

If the protestors are resolved to throwing the baby out with the bathwater I don't see anyone but the most left getting behind them. This amounts to 30% or less of the population.

If they want public support they have to have a cause the public can get behind.
