    The are headed into a situation they will never win.

    Most of them can't even articulate why they are there or what they want.

    They are products of Obama's class Warfare messages.

    This will end in disaster and they will cause it because they are stupid spoiled idiots, who need to get a job sit down and shut the hell up.
    If you and your fellow conservatives remain this clueless, then yes the GOP has a lot to fear.

    It started out they wanted the abolishment of Social Security and Medicare and medicaid...
    I would like to see your backing for any kind of actual tea party push to abolish social security, mediare, and medicaid.

    because it's certainly not what they're telling pollsters: 70% of Tea Party Supporters Oppose Cuts to Medicare and Medicaid

    when they found what that kind of rhetoric was confronted with they stopped that...and then tried to destroy them by proxy while giving the rich and corporations billions in tax cuts <ryans plan>
    actually, the Ryan Plan was the budget that took out all the tax breaks for the wealthy and corporations.

    They have railed that Unions have caused companies to outsource and thats been proven a lie...
    actually that is accurate. there is good reason why the auto companies up north are dying while the auto factories down south are booming.


    again, you seem woefully uninformed on that which you rant about continually. where are you getting your information?

    Ya know what? Most people don't pay much attention to politics, and even less to protesters.

    I walked into my office and said "What do you think about Occupy Wall Street?"

    Seven people looked at me blankly. One said "Huh?"

    The eighth knew what I was talking about, and laughed and said something derogatory.


    There's your 99%.


    In brief, "mostly indifferent".

    ....you may want to check that

    They do all this while attempting to convince their constituencies to vote against their own economic self interest, trying to convince them that it's the unions, or consumer protection laws, or worker's right laws, or environmental regulations which are responsible for their lot in life. Those mean liberals always brainwashing people into caring about their own rights.
    RIGHTS are negative things. you do not have a RIGHT to someone else's stuff.

    Would you say I have a right to a certain type of social/political system, or at least certain attributes in a system?

    Perhaps both parties need to fear this movement

    Re: Does the GOP need to fear the 99% Movement?

    The goal of the 99% movement is to establish a pseudo moral obligation to limit an individual's earnings and wealth. That is not dangerous to the GOP, that is dangerous to Americans.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    What drives the economy and creates jobs? Would you be more willing to expand your business under higher taxes and high demand, or lower taxes and low demand?


    They are products of Obama's class Warfare messages.
    I'd say Obama's part in the movement was not sticking to the promises that he was elected to fulfill. He wasn't elected to cut taxes and take a passive approach to stimulating the economy, so people are becoming disillusioned with the system all together.


    This will end in disaster and they will cause it because they are stupid spoiled idiots, who need to get a job sit down and shut the hell up.
    And all I'm hearing from conservatives is childish name calling. Why not offer some constructive criticism if you're expecting us to take your debate seriously?
