Why isn't any occupy movement mentioning the patriot act.

I was just wondering, why none of the movements have asked for a removal of the patriot act.

I understand the message is already convoluted.

The patriot act is a very big deal, and I would think that it would be almost as important as some of their other issues, and more important than others.

Do alot of people support the patriot act?
I could not understand how, personally, but that is just my opinion.

As for facts of what the patriot act is...

Patriot act

debates on the subject

Do we still need the patriot act

Patriot act still in effect

Maybe everyone just forgot about it....?

Because the medias are making sure we only get made up stories of the evil ways of the OWS movement

It's an issue that could scrub support from certain people. They're going after things that everyone can support.

The only problem I have with that, is alot of there demands aren't exactly what the masses want.

The main points are mostly right though, and the passion.

I do understand what you are saying, it could be viewed as a negative upon them.
Although if keeping support is more important that bringing up real issues, then all is lost already.

It's a good question that may elude simple answers. Or maybe it really is--as noted above--because it would cloud the issue.

But I'll tell you this: As soon as OWS and the Tea Party kiss and make-up, make a few simple but direct demands: THAT'S when I'm jumpin' on board and getting my chant on.

Party lines are screwing everything up. We can ALL agree on a few things and together we could make 'em stick.

My thinking is that it's because The Patriot Act is a symptom of the true disease; Corruption.
