Subject: RE: BS: The Meaning of OWS (Occupy Wall Street)
The system needs to be changed. It doesn't really matter who the president is because
the people have decided not to support the leaders since they don't represent the people any more. This is beyond the Republican recalcitrance or the Democratic compromises and betrayal.
I'm not worried about American protests as long as they are non-violent, calm, firm and resistant. As one of the Ninety-Niners, I know that we will win.
If MLK were alive, he would be part of the Ninety-Niners too. Certainly Tom Paine would.
The protesters today are a bulwark against the onslaught of fascism which could happen here.
