Also, neither group is all that organized and neither has a clear agenda - that is until a pundit or organization tries to put their own stamp on it. For instance, Fox News really put their stamp on the Tea Party, though I would guarantee many of the original protesters were not in agreement with Glenn Beck on the issues.



    It's not like there are a plethora of people to vote for in each election.
    No...they havent done something but they did something different. Liberals have elected the same corrupt people that they pretend to bitch about. And you will do it again. And you know it.

    Once their favorite, Michelle Bachmann, collects farm subsidies, and her husband collects government money to "correct gayness".

    There is nothing genuine about how Tea Party candidates turned out.

    The base anger is legitimate; but they fell for a bunch of people who want to destroy working peoples' salaries in order to preserve order for the top 1% to continue collecting even more of the nation's wealth. All while they shout, "Keep government hands off my Medicare!"
    And liberals...well...they just keep going, and going, and going. How many dem politicians have gotten rich in office? And you keep voting for them. Oh yes...you are the 99%...

    Yes, the conservatives were so noble in this past election since they voted so many new people in regardless of their leanings... oh wait, no they just elected as many republicans as possible.

    Try a third party candidate. Grow a little integrity. Or...just keep electing the same people.

    Is that what the Tea Party did last election? Since apparently they were so noble by electing more republicans.

    The Tea Party elected more conservative republicans. They ousted republicans. Make much of a difference? Well...make up your mind...how many times do we hear about the obstruction of the Tea Party republicans? Pick a position at least for Gods sake.

    Im not a republican. I didnt vote Tea Party or republican. I voted libertarian and independent candidates. You voted for the biggest takers of bribes in the country. You pretend to be upset...and you will vote for him again.

    What are you talking about? Did you address one point I made? Did you address the fact that Tea Party candidates collect government money? Nope. You apparently don't care about that.

    You don't care about the fact that I at least complimented the base anger that formed the Tea Party (because it's the same that forms the OWS movement - i.e. the government is for corporations not the people).

    Yes, I believe the Tea Party got hijacked and screwed up. And sadly, I believe OWS will fall prey in the same fashion.

    But you just want to believe you're right and everyone else is wrong.

    I just wonder if you'd love law enforcement so much as you do when they're pepper-spraying OWS supporters if the same law enforcement was trying to restrict 2nd Amendment rights in the way they're restriction 1st Amendment rights.

    You have no idea who I voted for (or you'd know I didn't vote at all lol). This is why you are impossible to debate with - you are filled with argumentative fallacies and preconceived notions.

    The Tea Party was never hijacked, it was built from the top down. It is astro-turf.

    OWS is real, grassroots organization. Democrats and union bureaucrats (SEIU most recently/notably) have tried corralling the movement but unfortunately for them one sounds like an idiot telling everyone to vote Democrat while invoking the name of OWS who directly attack democrats for their role in this heist.
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    Not exactly. TEA party people ran in GOP primaries because they understood what splitting the conservative vote would do. There were and are plenty of old time Republicans who just wish the TEA party went away.
