  •  OWS did both hurt (and in my mind help) the DNC (4+ / 0-)

    by waking them up somewhat like the T Party did. the difference?  T Party had the big money from the CEO's and racists they fronted for (whether that was their intent or not). The big money was out to get OWS. Still, it was important to revitalizing people.  We do have some power.  We saw that when people went out to vote because Repubs wanted to take the vote away. Unfortunately, we are still only willing to use it in the most modest Dem reforms. But in a very small way we beat very big money for a moment. It's not enough. Not even really beyond what used to be the mainstream. But it did show something, as did OWS.  the T Party is beginning to choke and die on its own hatred.  thank god.  will we be in time to change things to live to fight another day.  I don't know, but if we don't fight back, we die for sure.
