    There's a reason that in 2008, 94% of election winners raised more money in campaigns. Money wins now, not people.

    You seem to have left conservatives out for some reason...

They have a lot more power than just regular Joe Schmo on the street who is simply angry at our government and doesn't want to destroy the system as we know it. The ones with the biggest voices are the ones who want to destory Wall Street and the banks. They want to eliminate capitalism from our country.

    And my question to the regular ole liberal and libertarian there is....Why aren't you speaking out against these anarchists, socialists and communists?
    Because Glen Beck lost his credibility with us and now we don't believe a word he says.

    He doomed us all with his self aggrandizing foolishness.

    If you can't get behind that, then I'm not sure how American you are.
    I'm a tea partier and I've been about ending corruption in politics since I became interested in politics. These people have despised everything about tea partiers for 4 years. Now all of a sudden they agree?

    Tea Partiers are involved as well. I really plead you to consider that this isn't just a leftist movement. I align more with the right, and fully sympathize with the movement.

    Where's the proof? Please show me what "fundamentals" these unlikely allies are planning to "transform"?
    Isn't that what OWS is about? Or do they still not have a message?

    Which is exactly what tea parties have been saying for years. Where have you been?

    That's not what I'm saying. I'm saying there isn't a conspiracy among them to fundamentally change American society. Here's why: OWS hasn't come out with an official list of changes, not all members of those groups are involved in OWS and whatever changes they would agree upon are not going to be "fundamental" since every one of those groups has completely different ideas of the "fundamentals" of American society should be.

    Here's a question for you: what are you imagining as the "fundamentals" that unite the mainstream left with these other groups?

    I'm thinking they don't. If they are not careful, those who really want change could be about to lose control.

    People don't despise the Tea Party because it wants to end corruption. They despise it because it supports policies that they believe will destroy the country. The TP and OWS agree on some of the problems, but certainly not on the solutions.
