This is rather ironic twist of assertions. The protesters themselves claim to be unified as the 99% and assert that they are a focused movement. Yet you guys claim that they are not. DOesnt your position just play into the Rights hand? Everywhere else the debate is the opposite.
The 99% are protesting the fact that 1% owns the most wealth in our nation and they are against the undue influence that the financial institutions exert over our government institutions.
So who makes up these OWS protesters? A number of different type of people.
* College students, who are deeply in debt trying to get an education to help them get a job but requires them to get so deep in loans that their salary or wages can't realistically pay back.
* The elderly, who rely on government assistance to live after they've become too old to earn money in the work force.
* Socialists, who see the growing gap in wealth as damaging to our country and seek to use the government to implement policies to lessen that gap in wealth so all Americans can enjoy a better standard of living.
* Anarchists, who government institutions as immoral authorities over people that inherently become tools of economic elites and therefore prefer a society without any government institutions that can intrude on the individual liberties and freedoms of the people.
So on one hand we have socialists who want to use government authority to protect their economic interests and on the other hand we have anarchists who want to prohibit government authority to infringe on anyone's economic interests.
So if that's the case then how could they possibly come to a single solution?
Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
