Because the US is a republic, not a democracy, mob rule does not apply here
Until the politicians realise that, unless they appeal to a (still growing) mob, their chances of staying in congress may be in jeopardy.
No, the mob is not growing, and the day politicians succumb to mob rule, is the day the US dies.
Add to that the fact that there is no coherant message, crime, racism, hate, and hipocracy runs rampant in this small group of eco-terrorist wannabe's.
Mmhm somebody's been listening to the wrong news sources again. do you know what they had the audacity to do? When Mayor bloomberg went to close Zuccotti Park in order to "clean the park", the protestors cleaned it for them. How DARE THEY! Oh and the Yom Kippur sessions they had? Oh, how racist and insensitive of them, appealing to all of those people!!
XD I seriously hope, for your sake, that you are not this ignorant, one isolated incident, which is in stark contrast to previouse instances with the very same group of protestors, does not mean they are not criminals. I see your "yom kippor session, and raise you literally hundreds of racist comments made by variouse protestors. Once again, cherry picking at this stage in the game, is silly, anybody with half a brain knows better.
It's not surprising the public for the most part, has rejected them.
A United Technologies/National Journal Congressional poll found that 59 percent of Americans agree with the movement while 31 percent disagree.
An October Quinnipiac University poll of New York City voters found that 67 percent of New Yorkers approved of the movement with 23 percent disapproving.
A NY1-Marist Poll released November 1st showed 44 percent of New York voters supported the Occupy Wall Street movement, while only 21 percent supported the Tea Party.
No, the public supports the movement, even moreso than the Tea Party.
Until I see the polling data, I will not blindy assume these polls are correct. I have seen real polls, with traceable polling data that suggest otherwise. I'm smarter than that.
Now, for any idiots wanting to compair this movement to the tea party movement, you are way out of your legue. The tea party movement was not racist, not hateful, not unlawful, clean, orderly, had a clear concise message, and was effective...the opposite is true of the OWS group.
Okay, so I just take your word for it, huh? Well, let's see what others say..
http://colorlines.com/archives/2011/04/gop_member_sends_email_depicting_obama_family_as_apes.html - Well well. All nice and innocent here, arent we?
I see your two examples and raise you the MILLIONS of people who shunned these nuts publically. I don't see anybody in the WSP shunning the thousands of nut jobs hating against Jews, and other races.
I could paste more if you like. I have tons of them...
No, no, you really don't.
By the way, the Tea Party embraces pro-life (ie government stepping in to prevent abortion), yet it's for small government. Isn't that a contradiction? Who knows what these nuts truly stand for.
Abortion is murder, they are against murder because, well, it happens to be a crime that the government is supposed to enforce, sorry buddy, but once again, you are wrong.
They truely are a representation of what is wrong with the world today.
So you're not with the movement why? Are you for politicians being bought by corporate dollars? Are you for rigging of laws towards favouritism? They don't respresent what's wrong with the world today, they're against it.
No, that's not what's wrong with it, the government is the problems, regulations have allowed crony capitalism to thrive, this is yet another example of big government fusking up, and these WSPs are idiots protesting against the wrong people.
And unless you're part of the wealthy elite, you'd have to have rocks in your head to support Corporate influence in the politics. Do some research on the movement and stop spreading insane bullshit when you don't have a clue what it represents. That is called prejudice.
Wrong again, I am not part of the wealthy elite, I've done my homework on this BS, and let me tell you, it only ends one way, socialism, every time. My "insane BS" is actually fact, do some research yourself instead of following these idiots off the cliff like a lemming.
