I have been watching since before the beginning. It didn't start out this way but it has fast become a movement of the left with, I'm sorry guys to label it but it is what it is, socialist rhetoric and fuzzy thinking. I thought this was supposed to be - to put it in simple terms - about the corrupted relationship between Wall St and D.C., i.e. the privatization of Wall Street's profit but the socialization of its losses... and a movement without any other political agenda.
You are rapidly losing my support which was there when OWS was still just an idea. I don't think I only speak for myself - I believe there are a lot of us out there who aren't looking for a welfare state, or government intervention to "make things right" but rather looking to break the welfare state that exists for Wall Street only paid for by the citizens of this country.
Please don't try to argue with me - I have thought all of this through for quite a while and I am sure for many more years than most of you. I realize many of you are young and with that comes idealism. That works to a point but, in this case, I think OWS has lost its way. My only point to this post is that your are losing me and I suspect many others.
