    The 99% saying is not saying that 1% are republican...

    The question "Should the GOP should fear the 99% movement" would indicate that they would not be republican, otherwise why would they fear themselves? Semantics.

    I neither support or oppose OWS.

    I think we've talked about ends and means before... well, this groups "means" are not what I see as wise or proper.
    pretty much the same way I feel about the Tea Party... but I will say that I share many "ends" with both groups.

    Through real life observation of the radical right wing combined with a few college degrees and lots of psychology and sociology classes. Thanks for asking.

    The 99% movement means the OWS protesters....
    Hence their signs/slogan "we are the 99%"....

    They really don't have a claim to speak for the 99%.
    They certainly don't speak for me.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I'm with Harry on this one... you're behind again.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Republican Congressman Buddy Roemer cancels you out, as he supports the protester's goals.
