    Na. I think the left in America has been raped, punched and kept in a dark cellar so very long it's actually refreshing to see them at least get some sunlight and coverage under Obama's 8 years, even if it was ever so brief with OWS only lasting for a short time then crumbling..


    By the way, that picture in the first post is actually pretty accurate. Capitalists did start the class war in America. America used to be a much more economically equal society.

    BTW, what were your boy Mitt's plans for the Patriot Act? Was he going to repeal it?
    Actually, Mitt had retained all of GWB's neocon foreign policy advisors.
    We can only imagine how many new wars they would have gotten us into .

    Re: Is the left becoming more and more authoritarian?

    Mitt was also to the left of Ted Kennedy 20 years ago.
    Yet refused to raise his hand as only Huntsman did for a 10-for-1 swap of cuts to revenues in the 2012 debate.
    Even Coburn supported an 8-for-1 swap in his 2011 grand bargain and was willing to go further .

    If you're asking if the economic left of America which is never ever covered on any of the supposed "Liberal" news stations has essentially been gagged and silenced for decades then yes, I'd say OWS represented that gagged and silenced American left ever so briefly escaping to run the streets screaming in essential terror at what America has become for your average American.

They have also become increasingly violent, reference the recent officer involved shootings, occupy, etc. All with no new ideas-just rhetoric to explain their policy failures.

    There have even been calls to arrest those who disagree with them on global warming... Arrest Climate-Change Deniers

    We are told (by them) that "the debate is over".



    Is the left becoming more and more (nakedly) authoritarian?
    well the left has always been authoritarian but the major change is that once the goal of many lefties was to "comfort the afflicted" while now it is to afflict the (conservative) comfortable

    I see this poll has been hacked by some left wing hackers just like the gun safety poll
