  • 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.
