I wrote this post over 100 days ago, prior to becoming a supporter of the OWS movement. It's interesting to me that the GOP was the first to use the term "Class Warfare" in our current national debate. Why did they cling to this term? I explore this here:

Glad to hear the GOP is promoting class warfare for us.

I was really trying to figure out why they would use this term? Then it dawned on me that they are just using scare tactics. They want middle class Americans to worry that the OWS crowd are after their skee-do's.

Same way that they coined the phrase "Death Panels" during the healthcare debate. Most of the electorate will not take the time to find out the details of what OWS really stands for, they'll just blindly listen to cable news. -Sad but true.

We can't allow the GOP to frame the debate. We can't allow them to paint middle American's as being under attack from OWS. -That's what they'll try to do. That's what they are actively DOING.
