I post that all members refrain from divisive issues of racial oppression. Rather focus in united issue of greed and class warfare.

unimportant, we need to identify what is the problem, then come up with the solution. Greed divides the humans race and perpetuates the primitive notion of survival of the fittest. Right now greed motivates powerful interest groups to purchase politicians and create laws that serve their own agenda and weaken Our personal liberty. I personally look at the Occupy movement as a selfless agenda to make a better society.

I am not sure that greed and class warfare are the focus. Why concentrate on those things that are the problem rather than the solution to that problem?

Greed is not the problem. The problem is the lack of the individual or citizens to affect change.

dolfinguy, I do like the idea of getting special interests out of our elections. They spin the message to what the donor wants, instead of the People want.

I think the majority of American believe that greed is a major problem.

I also think the majority believe that Wall Street bankers and investors played a major role in sinking our economy and are now making record profits investing outside America.

I also think that many Americans believe that our government is too polarized.
