"It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to." - W. C. Fields
That's what this movement is trying to avoid. We accept support, but we express no support for any political party. We don't want to be identified with left/right, that is the problem with this country, people who think they have to oppose others because they're different.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius

No, I'm not saying ALL the protesters want what these people want. I just want people to acknowledge that they are saying it and they are involved in a major way. Research these people, please...
