    which is why he is on your side as most elected Democrats are on the side of rip-off corporations.  When will the KoS folks realize that these elected Democrats have blood on their hands?  Elected Dem officials can talk all they want about supporting the working class but when it comes to action there they are again and again in the pockets of the ruling class.  I do hope the General Assembly will look at this too.  And when the Democrats wonder why folks don't take their electoral campaigns seriously, they will be reminded of this horrible history... and remember Bernie Sanders is not a Democrat.   I think unless you take over the Democratic Party and kick out these pimps for the ruling class, they will be little hope to bring folks into the fold.   Obama proves again and again what side he is on.  

    Pass new laws to end media monopolization now.

    •  WHEN the Democratic Party actually (9+ / 0-)

      begins representing the working people, THEN the working people may consider supporting Democrats.

      NOBODY gets elected in this country without the support of the working people.  If Democrats want to win, their choice is clear.

      It is NOT the job of OWS to channel energy towards supporting Democrats.  It IS the job of Democrats to gain the support of OWS by their actions in support of working people.

      It IS the job of Democrats to gain the support of OWS by their actions in support of working people.

        well said.

        Democrats are just as corrupt as GOP.

      •  how do you propose they do that, claude? (1+ / 0-)

        if the numbers aren't there for the votes, exactly HOW do you propose the democrats change the rules?

        my suggestion? vote out the republicans and put enough democrats into office to make the changes necessary to bring the nation back in balance...

        by that, i mean make SURE there is sufficient majority to override even the testers and nelsons in the senate.

        Is GlowNZ back yet?
