They were able to make a change. Is there some point that you believe violence will be the only answer. And think about it the US millitary is composed of the 99% Do you think they will turn on thier own or turn the guns the other way and splinter away from the US.

And form something like a Provisional US forces, not taking orders from the white house.

A second civil is possible. We have not reached that point but I suspect in 30-35 years we will. It will end up with lots of bloodshed just like the first Civil War in the USA,

This is a ridiculous and asinine post. It's sadly misinformed. And even worse, the OWS people still think the entire country/world is backing them. A lot of us would be turning our guns on you if it came to. We don't all support this crap. "Violence worked in libya"....wow. This is just insane. Since it "worked" over there, any of you jumping ship to move? I'm sure not.

In all honesty I think Civil war is whats gonna happen in the future. You cant have it both ways.

ie: Provisional forces (US Armed forces siding with the 99%) and the 1%ers hiring PMCs like Black water, Sandline international etc..

next 35-40 years will be interesting.

you seriously think anyone in the US military is with you? just because you classify them as being in the same group as you doesn't mean they accept you.

A LOT feel sorry for you but we don't accept your invitation to be represented.

Just because you call yourselves the 99% doesn't mean you are.

Do you think they will shoot and kill their neighbor or thier family member to protect the interests of Chevron?

The big question is are you willing to kill your own people to protect the assets of a select group of individuals. It is one thing to go to Iraq and shoot alqaida. It is another thing to be in the US and kill a 14 year old kid who is trying to find food and your orders are shoot to kill because those kids are getting to close to Beverly hill mansions.

no I don't think anyone will shoot anyone :)

you assume 1st that THEY are on your side, 2nd that your neighbors and their family members are on your side.

it's this delusion of being bigger than OWS is that concerns me. you seriously have bought into the idea that by calling yourselves the "99%" that 99% of this nation is with OWS.

I'm sorry.

Lets say 2042 the US ends up with 75-80% of the US under the poverty rate, people starving and suffering from lack of medical care, cholera rampant due to lack of infrastructure investment. Do you honestly think that they will side with the elite living in the white castle? The direction the US is going means 40 years from now at this rate we will end up in a situation where no middle class exists. only 95% of the US population living in shanty towns and the rest doing okay.

I'd think way before 2042 or it got even close we would take a stand.

I also believe if we start putting the right people in office, express our likes and dislikes with those people, we cannot only prevent your scenario but also turn things for the better.

Agree with me or not, Agree with my party or not. I've watched Blue vs. Red in this country since 1980 and from what I see, the Red team is a whole lot LESS crooked and seems to make the more Intelligent and successful decisions. I don't want to get into it it's really exhausting so you vote for the Union owned Liberal spender, I'll vote for the Family valued Conservative. and let's pray neither destroys us.
