From what I have seen on this forum, most people here fall in the moderate independent catagory. Of course there are those more left and those in the libertarian camp but from spending hte past two months interacting with everyone I find most are fed up with both sides. As an old republican OWS supporter told me, I didn't leave my party, my party left me. We really make up that most coveted constituency, moderate independents fed up with both sides. Republicans and democrats know they can count on the far right and left to vote with them, they spend litte time in those states, they are spending most of the time in states with high registered independents or "unaffiliated" voters. You can be certain they will be listening to us especially since the occupy facebook page is now over 1/3 of a million people and should reach half a million people come peak election season. this is the constituancy they will be listening most to when they try to court us as voters. Don't forget how much power this movement really has. The small tea party really had a lot more power than expected. And OWS should have just as much influence come peak election season in a few months. Lets really focus down on that message of removing corporate money from our democracy. Our voices will become more and more important as politicians realize we are the untapped constituency of independent moderates. We are for the most part well educated, and are for the most part registered voters. We will decide the next election. pay attention politicians I know you are monitoring this site, any politician not monitoring this site would be a fool, with so many potential voters here.
