With that said, let me give you some applications from the Tea Party
movement that Occupy WallStreet should be using to be more effective.
First, Occupy Wall Street is fighting with way too many demands which
are submitted by an user who doesn’t represent the party itself but is
still on the website for the unofficial, official party? Confused? So
is the rest of America. They list everything from equal rights and open
borders (yea!) to spending more money and forcing people to stop using
fossil fuels (boo!) The Tea Party started with one simple subject,
spending. The Tax Enough Already
Party started during the end of the Bush term when the first stimulus
was getting passed. One platform that grabs not only Republicans but
Independents and few Democrats. Let’s face it, without Independents
Republicans and Democrats would be nothing.
Second, Occupy Wall Street is fighting its own party. Tea Party
started at the end of Bush, when we knew the country was voting
Democrat. The Republicans were so awful during the Bush era, that you
knew the next in line was going to be a Democrat. Momentum for the
group started when the government passed another stimulus, which was the
downfall for the Democrats and the reason they lost the next election.
Obama still has a year left in the office. The protestors are fighting
their own party and I believe will cause Blue Dog Democrats to walk
away farther from them.
Finally, what are they really protesting? Are they really protesting greed? One protester told the WSJ
“We’re not here to take down Wall Street. It’s not poor against rich.
It’s about big money dictating which politicians get elected and what
programs get funded,” she said.
History has shown that the wealthy make politicians dirty but we have
a choice to fix that. Here in America we have a special event called
an “election” where we elect people into the government. If you are mad
about this, protest in DC! That would make more sense, since they are
the ones falling into temptation. The tempters will always tempt, but
people have the choice to accept that temptation! Listen up OWS people,
if you are really mad at this, get the people you want elected! Like
the Tea Party, they actually made a difference for their cause by
talking the talk.
