Forum Post: Failure of the Founders, "there are good people on both sides"

In the fall of 2010 when OWS began all the media fought to get the founders on their air. When asked about the Democrats and Republicans, instead of saying the rich are too damn rich and the GOP work night and day to make them richer, they said "there are good people on both sides" just like Trump when speaking of white supremacist and counter protesters. If the OWS founders had been willing to speak the truth maybe all that time in the park wouldn't have been wasted.

not so! If you say the truth straight out they either shrink in fear from a suspected terrorist or label you a terrorist and call for your beheading. That's virtual decapitation by character assassination that the majority of dems can't see through and all the repugs feed on.

This land of fools is no where close to being ready to hear the truth.

so that's why you're here? to tell lies?

There is a great a growing hunger for truth in this country, this was shown in the crowds that showed up at both Bernie and Trump rallies, the support OWS got in 2011.

Sad but very true. Though some are done with the bullshit and are protesting. Still we have an inexplicable truth that needs resolving - How in The HELL could Drumpf even remotely come close to getting a nomination to run for president and then even more insane - how could the criminal actually win the election? YES - the truth is in the FACT that the 2016 election was rigged and not in the way EVERYONE is screaming about - it had nothing to do with Russian opinion pieces flooding the internet - NO - it had everything to do with Decades of Republican Gerrymandering taking away the actual vote tallies - OH and Yeah - It also had to do with the DNC criminally screwing Bernie Sanders (and so the American People). Neither candidate (sHillary or Drumpf) were fit to run for dog catcher let alone the presidency!
