America is not made of entirely (wealthy) business people or (wealthy) top-level government servants (ha) which is what Gingrich, Romney, Obama, and the rest, believe (or just want to believe). This is how they see the world. What about the Teachers, the Factory Workers, Farmers, regular people doing regular jobs? What about Artists, Musicians, and Performers? Do they not make this world a BETTER place in which to live? They have ZERO representation. OUR Government treats them like a burden on society because they don't run a multimillion dollar company. Because they aren't a Senator, or a Congressman, or a President. Because they don't wear a suit and a tie to work. Because they have different beliefs or values. People within our Government attempt to weaken regular people by giving them choice but really it is a false sense of control. It is classic slavery mentality. The illusion of choice. WE do not choose our leaders. These elections are much more about a power grab and the business interests they represent than it is running the Government. The UNITED STATES of America is NOT a CORPORATION. OWS represents the people of America that the Politicians refuse to recognize as an important part of the social fabric of this Country. Because of the work people (like OWS) are doing there is a chance at change. Our Government will not change for the People's benefit they will only change for their own benefit. The particulars of this battle does not matter. It is the result and the change in consciousness that is important. Only people that see the forest through the trees will get it. Keep Calm and Battle On.
