EVERYONE knows Americans are fed up. We need a Unified movement,that isnt Left or Right. I for one would gladly protest.I went to Tea Party
Rally's,and to OWS in my city. My first step is to vote for someone I believe in,this coming election. Second, is to recall congress.Because that
NEEDS to happen.Im not going to camp anywhere,but when I have to,I will visit DC,and protest there. The only signs that should be seen is "dont let
the door,hit you on the a$$,on your way out."
Now THAT'S a fact!
When those on either side stray from the message, and start agitating for their own "pet projects" instead of the common cause, tempers flare and
suspicions awaken. When the OWSers go off on a tangent with signs to the effect that "Capitalism must DIE!" or the Tea Partiers go off on THEIR
tangents with signs to the effect that "Obama is the Aintichrist!" they don't just lose the plot, they don't just lose the common ground, they
lose a tenuous potential for cooperation that's the only way things are going to be accomplished without massive bloodshed.
Whether one thinks Capitalism is the evil destroying mankind, or whether the other believe that Obama is the Overlord of the NWO is immaterial to the
central premise, the common ground between the two camps that something
needs to be done to break the connection between the Money Men and the
Politicians. While we're arguing back and forth about side issues and non-issues (to one or the other side) we're NOT finding a means to accomplish
the main goal that is acceptable to both.
I don't care if your camp has a LGBT segregated section. I don't care what you think of Capitalism, or if you even believe it still lives anywhere
on Earth. I don't expect you to care that I think there IS no more Capitalism, I don't expect you to care that I want no part of a forced health
care system. I don't care if you think I'm a wage slave, nor do I expect you to care if I think you want to trade that in for a State-sponsored
slavery. Those are all side issues, distractions from the core. While we're arguing about them, NOTHING is getting done on the common ground.
Unknown Soldier and I have been back and forth over all kinds of side issues in a couple of threads. In THIS one, we've traded a couple of arrows -
BUT he said one thing I can get behind here. It's something I've said myself elsewhere. "Fire 'em ALL!" Clean house. Wipe the slate and start
fresh. Don't fix the system - force it to fix itself.
If we can manage to come to an agreement, and concentrate on the ONE issue, things can get done. On that, I can stand right with him, regardless of
the other differences. It's entirely possible we may find other commonalities - or maybe not. It doesn't matter, as far as that ONE issue is
If we can manage to hold to that single thing, and both swing our hammers at it, nothing else matters for the moment.
If that ever happens, our beer in Hell may just turn out to be chilled.
