  •  They want protesters to be part of the political (10+ / 0-)

    process...that way their message can be controlled, and the impact of their accusations minimized.

    They're terrified of people who act on principle instead of party affiliation...and there is no better of example of how that control is used for political gain than the Obama followers. You will never hear them present a logical argument to support their views. They repeat White House talking points, they ridicule, and they obfuscate, which provides cover for the president to enact policies that would have never found their way into the Democratic Party's platform in any other lifetime.

    They condemn Republicans for acting in the best intersts of corporations, while supporting the president when he advances the very same agenda.

    And the millions of people who tried to fight back -- under the OWS banner -- were labeled terrorists.

    I don't know how the system could be more corrupt.

    I agree with Jessie when he says the Republicans are behind much of the corruption, but the blame for betrying the Democratic principles that would have countered such corruption falls squarely at Obama's feet...but good Democrats, who would have condemned similar actions by Bush, pretend nothing is happening.

    That is why the solution must fall outside the political system...
