I must admit, I once was an avid supporter, but, OWS made too many mistakes which they never felt the need to correct.
1. One of them is this: If you're going to have a "leaderless movement," then it is important for EVERY SINGLE PARTICIPATING MEMBER to be educated on
EVERY aspect of the factors that contribute to the movement, and why they are there supporting it. Otherwise, your movement looks foolish if one
cannot clearly articulate their reasons for protest.
2. The movement allowed too many hands to contribute which began to lead to political motivations outside of the grievances that were being listed.
3. George Soros CLEARLY co-opted the movement
4. Barack Obama ended up using it as a platform for re-election while sympathizing with the supposed "cause."
5. The Vatican used it as a method for creating a new economy, of which OWS people TRIED to adopt.
6. The movement lost its overall sight of corralling ALL of the people responsible as Iceland did. They began to focus ENTIRELY on Wall St. while
forgetting that the politicians are the people who litigated Wall Street's ability to rob the American people. -Both sides need to be weeded out, and
just "getting money out of politics ain't going to cut it, because they will just re-litigate their way back into the system. -YOU NEED TO IMPRISON
THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM, which are the CEO's, bankers, and EVERY SINGLE POLITICIAN who enabled their actions.
7. OWS started getting violent in certain cities. Not all of them. Oakland was a prime example of how things completely got out of control. Whether
supporters would like to agree or not does NOT mean much to me.
8. Most of the movements lost their LOCAL appeal, which is working to create economies on the local level which help to sustain a real way of living.
The one here in Bloomington, Indiana is composed of 75% homeless people who know nothing of the cause at all. And the students who are participating
are not leveraging their ability to network, they're not coming up with economic strategies for a more fair system, and they're not growing in
numbers. In fact, it merely looks as if they're all just having a wonderful party of make-believe and fantasy. There's literally NO NEED FOR THEM TO
BE THERE. What's worse is that they can't agree about anything AT ALL. How the hell do you expect for politicians to do better at something that you
can't even prove that you can do for yourself? -That's right, politics isn't necessarily easy, but, you have to give the politicians credit on this
one, they can at least come together long enough to empower themselves OVER US.
9. The worst part is the Movement's inability to discern friend from foe. They constantly let elected officials, politicians, and celebrities come in
and speak on their behalves when these are the VERY PEOPLE WHO HAVE SCREWED THINGS UP TO AN UNREPARABLE DEGREE. -Do you really think it means SO MUCH
to have a police officer speak on your behalves when these are the very people beating, tazing, and jailing us at record paces? It absolutely amazes
me...they'll create videos with celebrities coming in, demonstrating their pride of having someone of "influence" represent their cause. -HOW FOOLISH
CAN YOU GUYS BE? THIS IS HOW THEY INFILTRATE YOU, YET, YOU TOTE IT WITH PRIDE AS THEY SPEAK ALL THE WORDS THAT YOU WANT TO HEAR. Even worse, some of
these people still want to re-elect OBAMA.
Have they lost their minds? Have they not studied or THOUGHT ABOUT ANYTHING??? Obama IS the guy that made sure it that the whole process was
accelerated. Even worse, they'll actually petition Obama to create change against the very laws that HE PUSHED THROUGH. That's literally like me
walking up to Al Capone and politely asking him to drop the prices on liquor so that it becomes, "More fair" for everyone else. -It takes not only a
very NAIVE individual to do something so ridiculous, but, it is indicative of how ignorant many of the protesters are to the cause of their present
situation. -Most of them have studied NOTHING.-
10. The movement files for corporate, non-profit status...how ironic. Then certain cells of the movement like Oakland decides to deposit their money
into one of the very banks they were protesting. -How does that make the movement look?

deposits 20,000 into Wells Fargo (Facepalm)
-After of which, all sorts of well-produced commercials and other such items of FRANCHISE start appearing, as the amount of money from sources like
Moveon(dot)org and other affiliations begin to flow.
OWS has lost sight of its purpose. People in Egypt aren't turning this into a movie, they're fighting for their LIVES, just like in other portions of
the world. Its time to grow up and do the responsible thing. End the two-party system which keeps us divided and ENSLAVED and imprison the guilty.
Which includes, Obama, McCain, Bush (both of them), Clinton (both of them), the Senate, Congress, and the Judicial branches who empowered these laws.
Then after that, we get rid of all of the Federal Laws and Departments which enact in very illegal manners. (CIA, DEA, FBI, NSA, NASA, ATF, etc)
Until we do the right thing, we're going to be sitting in a stagnant position without leverage...
