Occupy stands for diversity of tactics.
I am an elderly man not in the best of health. The last time I voted was in 1968 but I am going to vote this time hell or high water. Here is why:
It is obvious that the one percenters had favored Obama in '08. He was just the man for the job. He "kept hope alive" and possibly forestalled the birth of the Occupy Movement. BAD OBAMA!
He had more campaign money than McCain had. McCain was convinced to have a very negative running mate, a notoriously ignorant and backward person. Given the racism that is rampant in this country Wall Street needed all the help it could get to elect the pacifier, Obama.
Things are not the same now. Obama has "served his purpose." Romney has raised much more money than Obama has.
In Wisconsin the one percent seem to have made a decisive choice, one which any progressive person should instinctively oppose. Governor Walker has raised 25 times more money than the Democrats, who are staffed by Occupy's natural base and who are being abandoned by the National Democratic Party. This two party one two punch at our brothers and sisters ought to be rebuffed.
Romney is a member of a very deceptive cult. A racist cult. A lying cult. A fast growing cult. An anti Gay cult. A totalitarian cult. A bizarre cult. His election would not only energize the Tea Party, our mortal enemies, it would strengthen the recruitment of this very dangerous cult, LDS and dishearten and demoralize Occupy's natural base.
I know that Occupy's non leaders are anarchists and they oppose elections under the present system in principle. Also there are legal reasons for Occupy not to endorse any candidate or work for one. That is fine and should be that way. Individuals though must follow their consciences. Think strategically. You don't have to give up the battle in the streets and other arenas in order to take a short period of time to vote.
