I have watched OWS movement grow since September, and I am in awe of how powerful it has become.
The issues of OWS have touched is all -- well maybe not everybody. The remaining 1% is still trying to suffocate the movement by putting pressure on local officials.
But no matter what the lobbyists say or do, they have lost because the rank and file citizens -- the voters -- are fed up.
Fed up with pay-for-legislation politics.
Fed up with skyrocketing tuition costs.
Fed up with deteriorating roads and schools
Fed up with regulators who are turning a blind eye toward the very blatant and corrupt practices in Wall Street and main street businesses that produced the historic economic collapse.
It was not the butcher, baker and candlestick maker who produced the economic meltdown.
It was not the plumber, clerk, or school teacher who produced this historic financial collapse.
It was not the firefighter or police officer who invented mortgage-backed-securities, or derivatives, or a host of new exotic Wall Street financial products that turned into "toxic assets."
But it will be the average student, teacher and citizen who will take back America.
