I am just wondering if any of the occupies like Obama?

I voted for Obama. If there's a better alternative this fall, I'll vote for that person to be president. The lack of reform of Wall St. is a huge disappointment. The big banks are even bigger than before the collapse of '08 and that seems dangerous to me. That's a big part of why I support Occupy Wall Street. The 99% Declaration's proposals are good ones and I support and agree with them as well.

Not me! Obama is a paid for political stooge of big money. GE and BofA own him.

And Goldman Sachs... one of his top 3 contributors in 2008

Hence the support for the fraudulent bailouts instead of a real solution and not to forget all the Goldman Sachs execs in his administration.

Obama at a minimum has allowed homeland security to organize nationwide assaults on occupy. Add this to signing indefinite detention into law, ACTA and HR347. Drone strikes on rescuers and mourners and arm deals to Bahrain (as they crack down on pro-democracy protests). JOBS Act endorsed. Keystone fast tracked. Increased drilling. No environmental progress. Billions to the banks that finance him as millions loose their homes. Won't stand up for equal marriage rights. The most progressive thing he's done is nationalize RomneyCare. Check out Rocky Anderson if you want a candidate with a truly progressive record.

I would like a transparent government

I do not support anyone that bombs nations that did not attack us.

I consider myself a "liberal" but I do not support anyone with such a violent foreign policy that also supports the theft of our rights and loves Goldman Sachs. Obama is more like a 1970's style republican than a democrat.

The 2 party system is corrupt.

We need real people in the government, people that speak out against corruption from both sides... people like the former Congressman Dennis Kucinich.

I will also include that Mitt Santorum are terrible for America.

That depends, some do, some don't. There's a lot of that with OWS.

I've been to a dozen different occupations, I've talked to hundreds of Occupy activists. While some will probably vote for Obama I haven't met a single OWS activist who plans to campaign for him. Our project is to build OWS. That's in stark to the liberals who contribute to this forum and who think they are OWS supporters but who have always been in the tank for the Democratic Party.

I would say that most of us would support him over a repuke.

Sir, I beg to differ. As a lifelong Demo I can tell you that I will not vote for that lying bag of turds,Obama. I'll vote for anybody else. Dont care who.

That's an obvious question with an obvious answer,YES.
The vast majority of them do,they fully support him regardless.

mr. truck, please do not assume things which you have no idea about. most ows supporters do not trust any politicians, that's why they became involved in ows in the first place. the two party system represents the interests of the people who pay them, not the majority of the people.
