Protest illegally? Are you serious? Legal protest is gone. We didn't do it when it was. Not enough. The success of the tea party protests and OWS was directly proportional to their ability to bring viewers to the entertainment channels and the ad revenues paid to the networks.
I would support a new group, with a clear and defined message as long is they didn't illegally protest in public parks

the movement is shifting priorities to getting ron paul elected and helping people through winter etc...
as for myself, I support the idea of change, and that happens when we talk to each other and find out what the problems are and how we can work out solutions.OWS attempts to do this whereas the current system in place only talks to find out a way to make money for itself.

I don't think anyone is going to remember this by the time it's Spring. I really don't. Even ATS seems completely over it. Which I find amusing because so many people were so super serious that OWS was going to change the world. Again, I will gladly eat crow if they actually accomplish something (that I find big enough).
OWS is Elenin. Completely floods the front page, nothing really happens and everyone completely forgets.
Those that burn brightest, crash hardest....or something to that effect. It's a saying I'd heard years ago and Occupy brought it back to mind.

Just want to see what people are thinking at this point. [SNIP] At this point do you feel that anything has really been accomplished?
In a 25-page decision, Suffolk Superior Court Judge Frances McIntyre denied a motion the protesters filed that would protect them from eviction from their encampment in Dewey Square, a fate that has befallen similar protests across the country in recent weeks.
“While Occupy Boston protesters may be exercising their expressive rights during the protest, they have no privilege under the First Amendment to seize and hold the land on which they sit,” McIntyre wrote in her decision.
Anyone challenging the status quoe is such a threat to you people.

How is the movement shifting gears into getting Ron Paul elected?
On their own website OWS BANNED any talk of Ron Paul what so ever, and anyone caught doing so would be ejected from the website.....
This movement doesnt want Ron Paul....
Hes small government and wants to cut out a huge amount of the social programs and gov entities that OWS wants to keep and implement on a larger scale......
Not buying it
