I have stood (and continue to stand) for what I believe in, but I wasn't worried about taking rubber bullets and tear gas because Tea Party members are respectful of each other and their surroundings. The thought of fighting with police never crossed my mind. The OWS, and pretty much any and all "movements" from the left, always end up being violent and hateful. That is the nature of progressivism and liberalism. The OWS people are animals, camping in piles of their own garbage and bodily waste, raping and sexually assaulting each other, all the while remaining unable to articulate a rational or reasonable thought. I love the OWS protests, because these idiots continue to expose themselves for the clowns that they are more and more each day, which makes my job as the father of three young children even easier, because I don't have to explain to them the difference between me and them, I just have to turn on the news.

This is your opinion, you started the discussion, you got rational, well mannered replies at this point (your response). But some people had views and ideals that you don't agree with, so you're mad. And rather than construct a reply, attemopting to challenge the thinking of the posters, you throw a tantrum and "quit." Hardly objective
No i didn't get well mannered replies. I got off topic smears against OWS ignoring a simple question asked at the OP of this thread.
People refused to discuss the topic, mods refuse to moderate the posts, so i'm done trying to have an objective discussion with the likes of YOU people. go read it again if you need to, you are incorrect.

You are quite right, but to fix the GOV. engine you need tools. The problem is a chain saw and a shovel won't do the job, we need a new tool that's not owned by the left or the right. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different out come is the definition of the insane ( or the left and the right )!

Many did put the facts aside and now the country is much worse off. Remember?? Anybody but Bush, right?? Don't pay attention to the details...just follow your heart, right??
LoL if you could have only been on the forums I was on during the run up to that election, you'd see how completely idiotic and insane your statement is, if it is indeed directed at me. I didn't fall for Nobamas crap. I did say, once he "won" to wait and judge him on actions, not him being a secret muslim anarchist socialist satan worshipper. But I was the first to say dude, you can't vote for him just because he's black. he's unqualified, and in the pocket of the very same people you are trying to vote out of power.
But that doesn't fit into your anti-phishyblankwaters agenda, does it?
They are taking time out of their lives to go fight for what they believe is right. do you have the guts to fight for what you believe in? Will you stand in the cold, taking tear gas and rubber bullets, to stand for a principle?
If you won't fight to remake the world in a way you feel is fair and right, who will? If a true movement of the population can't change the system, shouldn't the system be destroyed?
If you intend to post in this thread, make your post about how you feel about these people uniting to fight for what they perceive as being right.
Ignore what they are fighting for, and just reflect on the fact that these people, in nations all over the earth, are standing in the cold fighting for something. Even if you disagree with what they are fighting for, can you not at least RESPECT them for actually trying?
Will you stand in the cold, taking tear gas and rubber bullets, to stand for a principle?

I didn't know OWS had something against free speech.
but the idea of people fighting to change things for the better of the country? That's an idea I can definitely get behind. That's what America and patriotism is all about.
