Just like the Democratic Party is comprised of different subgroups and interests, the Republican Party can no longer be grouped as a singular "group" - none of the current GOP candidates are very exciting in my view. I would like to hear someone articulate the OWS message as well. I understand people are pissed at a bunch of different things, but without some unification of message they are going to remembered as some people who were just angry (about what no one will be able to note exactly) and fade away. I do think that their anger is somewhat misplaced at WS to a degree. Much of what they are protesting (from what I can see) is facilitated by WS, but originates and is perpetuated on "K" Street by both political parties. Confiscating the entire wealth from the 1% would only keep the government afloat for a few months. Warren Buffet's entire fortune would keep the government afloat for about week-10 days. We can argue about the different places where we would like to see that money spent, but we should all be able to agree that current spending habits of the government are unsustainable given current conditions. Some would like to see additional revenue, but given their propensity to spend money there is no indication that spending would not just rise as additional taxes are collected. Some would like to see reduced spending, but there are legitimate needs out there that must be funded. There must be a balance somewhere, but I am unconvinced the current group of elected politicians (both sides of the aisle) are able to constructively get to that point.
