  •  OWS (6+ / 0-)

     I think what ows is trying to say is that elections just aren't going to cut it, we have been electing these bums for years with no real change. The entire system in corrupt and the first thing ows has done is woken people up to that corruption. (unfortunately the mass majority of americans are still sleeping or remain ignorant). Corporations have bought our politicians, our media, our justice system, they are buying our schools, they use the IMF to exploit other countries. We will not get change, there will not be another "great reformer" president unless WE THE PEOPLE demand it.  (that being said i do think tent city was a bit of a fire hazard but they should be able to erect big "safer structures." I like that they are staying in a place that is for the public. I think it is symbolic of what has been lost over the past 30-40 yrs: community, caring for eachother instead of me me me, government representation(having an actual say in dem. process despite challenges of GA)  etc. . . .
