First and foremost, if OWS wants to represent 99% of the population, then that MUST include the 36-42% of us self Identified conservatives.
Secondly, we tend to be goal oriented, and look for cut-and-dry solutions,.... no offence liberals, but if you want to succeed in this, you have to have specifics and take actionable steps to achieve those goals.
And thirdly, if you want to be Intellectually honest as you claim, then if all points of view are valid, then that makes conservativism valid as well.
We are the people that go to church each week, pay our taxes, and do the best we can. We have a strong sense of justice. We have a faith in a better tomorrow. We live by a moral code. And we despise what big bussiness, big banks, and big government has done to our country.
We can back you when you wish to end trade with china.
We can back you when you want corrupt pols out of office.
We can back you when bankers need to be jailed for fraud.
We can back you when you unionize.
We can back you when the 1% demonize you and lie about you.
And we can back you when corporations need held accountable.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not about to don a pair of hemp pants and poop on a police car. To attract us, appeal to our sense of morality and justice, fair play ect. And then welcome us in, in areas we have common cause. You've got a good start, we are praying for ya.
