Like in Egypt and many other countries throughout the middle east the same people the protestors fought to over throw were behind the scenes waiting for the honest citizens to do their dirty work for them. They did this only to see a further loss of freedom. They were duped into a lie. Beware, what you wish for, you just might get. That is shutting down the current system of government but only to see it replaced by a more sinister version of state control, fascism and lose of overall personal freedoms. There is no such thing as a perfect solution but we do still have the ability to infiltrate, organize and make real change that promotes change that matters. The idea that capitalism is "all" bad is ridiculous. Capitalism has created the greatest nation this world has ever seen. A nation were even the poorest among us are Iphone toting well fed individuals. The real problem this nation faces is "crony capitalism". The kind that regardless of political affiliation has truly infiltrated our system of government. This type of capitalism allows companies like GE to pay a 0% tax rate. No bid contracts, billion dollar unions and politicians using insider information to gain wealth has to stop. Occupy DC, push for term limits and make the corrupt insider practices of the members of government punishable by jail time. That will do more to turn the tide toward true freedom and fairness than anything else.
