    It's amazing to me how people refuse to even research these people leading this movement. It doesn't matter how many people call themselves socialists or communists, it matters how many "regular" people they have real influence over. This movement was began and is being run by socialists and communists. To deny that, is to deny reality.

    The movement ...while it might get hi jacked eventually or have some events or words that do not represent the original message ... it is not about envy of someone who makes more money ... or trying to get something for free.

    The poll though was not really about OWS ... it was about where posters fell in the 99% or 1%.
    I'm sure some puke who doesn't have what you have will find something they believed gave you an unfair advantage and you owe then.

    Why buy into that crap?

    Absolutely. There is no other political philosophy that could drive it.

    This is not the revenge of the Blue Dog Democrats.

    Helpful hint: You don't get into the 1% with a degree in medicine. You are deluding yourself if you think the 1% is composed of semi-rich doctors and lawyers ect.

    You delude yourself if you think you won't be thrown into the one percent as long as you have more than someone else.

    Nobody is leading this movement. It's a grassroots group run on consenseous. Purely democratic.

    If it were run by socialists, this movement would've fell a part a long time ago.
