    So you think that the evil communists that have infiltrated OWS will use that position to corrupt the minds of 51% of the nation? So we should rely on you to censor the ideas that the public is exposed to, because they're dumb and you're smart, and you are immune to the corruption that these evil communists sow. Is that about right?

    Honestly, it just makes you sound ridiculous when you say stuff like that... I don't know what else to tell you. It's silly talk. There are only two communist nations left on earth and they're both in the process of switching over to capitalism... You need a new boogie man. Or better yet, stop thinking in such a simplistic way and engage people with ideas rather than childish scary stories.

    The communists have fallen on hard times. Ask Van Jones. This is just the coming out party they needed.

    Which nations are those?

    Not sure
    6%

    So 45% favorable + 49% favorable... That's 94% favorable!

    Regardless of whether it is 54% or 45% or 49%, those numbers are still all higher than any other major political entity. The tea party, for example, is currently at 27%. Obama is at 43%. Romney is at 36%. Congress is at 12%...
    Oh.. come on. Read the rest, and you will see it is a typo.

    The Tea Party also had similar approval ratings in mid-2010. Of course around half of the population is going to approve it, because they are mad at the bankers, and the politicans. But if they knew what kind of opinions the Wall Street protestors had, their approval rating would be down with the Tea Party.

    You told me it wasn't democratic and that it was being led by communists and socialists. This is incorrect. I've been down there and I've seen and participated in how it works.

    Incidentally, there have been a lot of teach ins and MANY of them were organized by libertarians such as yourself. So don't delude yourself into thinking you can convince me that this is all a socialist conspiracy when you clearly have no idea what you are talking about.

    It was nobody of any kind of celebrity. Just ordinary people teaching folks about how the economy works and how the stock market and the federal reserve works etc.
