To me there are two main objectives in the Occupy movement. First, return Democracy back to the people. Second, reduce the great disparity in wealth. I would guess 90% of the people would support these. Even many Reps, and Dems.
Next add Free health care, protection of the planet, student loan debt, replacing capitalism, plus dozens of other grievances. As each new grievance is added, one or more of them will be objectionable to some. More and more people will withdraw support until eventually our 90% approval drops to 20%.
The point is simple. The more grievances we have, the less chance we have of passing the critical ones. If the people fail to get control of our democratic process, we won't have the ability to later decide whether to pass the less critical ones.
