This will be the biggest flaw for OWS. The movement claims they have no bias one way or another but after reading almost every thread that comes up on this site, I think it's pretty clear that that is not the case at all. It would be more benifical for OWS at this point to say who you are and start working in that direction as that is the only way your message is going to be heard by the real 99%. If at that point they agree than you have another follower, if not then you don't. But to continue on protraying an immage that you are not will only hurt in the end.

The Conservatives are welcome to support OWS instead of the 1%.

That's not the point. The point is they never will as long as OWS pretends it's a non-political bias organization.

In the end it is History who will say what The Occupy Movement was. OWS is everything everyone says it is, so de-facto it can't say 'who we are' except for possibly one thing. "We are the 99%" which is to say we are The People that vote. It says We, The People, reject the idea that money and corporations are people with the same 1st Amendment right we have. It says that we will not be played the way the Supreme Court was played. It says at birth we were given the tools to deal with the 1% and we are going to find what we lost. Oh look, look what we found...

But that's not true. OWS is Approximatly 33% of the 99% based on the newest Harvard poll.

No I'm not interested in the movement being the Dem answer to the Tea Party. Nice try. Farewell.

On the top of every post- including this one it says- This content is user submitted and not an official statement


The real head of OWS is filling his sleigh with toys for good little boys and girls. and coal for the 1% . http://simurl.com/mavtad

And that has nothing to do with the post but great try at diverting though. Why not try to engage in meaningful conversation about it. Even if you don't agree with what I posted at least try to defend the organization if you feel it is wrong?

You want ows to say WHO THEY ARE . That's not going to happen. Each world ows city, has there own ajenda, with its own unique injustice that its people have tolerated way to long. OWS stands for Occupy Wall Street- its now only a banner, like a flag- a rallying point for the world's oppressed people to carry into battle. That and a clenched fist- from Serbia. http://simurl.com/mavtad

And that is exactly why OWS cannot succeed. To many different ideas that one group or another cannot or will not support thus division in your own group.
