Ok, for a long time, i have thought of the Occupy movement as 1/3 wanting to reform our present system in the USA- even revolution, 1/3 as anarchists and 1/3 as survivalists. imho - looks like NOW - the majority are for reforming our political system as in over 50% supporting Bernie, 25% anarchists and 25% survivalists.......yet, you have to see the reality - without a grass roots support and vote for candidates of the same mind set as Bernie.....we are in for the same sorta us congress gridlock,even more so what Obama has had..... What say you ? http://occupywallst.org/forum/the-nation-endorses-bernie-sanders/

Let us be brutally honest, and not be fool by all this election circus. Any real change is going to have to come from totally outside the existing system. I would not put my hopes with any politician no matter what they say.

You're a conspiracy theorist, so doubting anyone who has some form of authority is normal. You doubt politicians, doctors, scientists, etc... Who you don't doubt are goofballs like Alex Jones.

I say Bernie will break the gridlock with millions of people behind him. They will have to listen to the will of the people who are rising up and demanding change.

My hope is Bernie is genuine and along with Liz Warren forces the MSM to report the proposals from Bernie to Congress. Bernie says the system is corrupt, rigged, and broken. Let the transition begin.

Warren has been absolutely silent. She's playing politics as usual, forget about her. The overwhelming majority of them are looking out for their own careers, and they know not to diss a Clinton.

Another example of people acting in self interest. Part of the reason Im not a huge fan of people ruling over me (basically just using me).

I will be disappointed with Warren if she doesn't endorse Bernie. If Bernie is crushed in the next few months, I'm ok with her remaining silent.

If Bernie begins to show signs of winning, I expect Warren to support him but the timing would be crucial, and very helpful.

My friend, if there was ever a time for a Warren endorsement, it is now. Super Tues is next week, thats the make or break, after that its over.

In all honesty, fuck Warren. She's an economic hack, she won't go against her own party, and she is clearly more interested in her own career than helping any of us.

I'm surprised, she is one of my favorites.
