    I've met several Republicans at Occupy events.  I have heard many previously hypnotized conservatives begin to question what they had previously been taught that was supposed to be "right", and are seeing that it might just be "wrong".
    The biggest problem isn't Republicans, it's Republican Politicians, and Tea Party (if they aren't both the same entity) politicians that are stopping progress.  I'll bet PLENTY of Republican voters are with us.  Just not politicians.  Poll after poll says so.  
    It isn't Democrats against Republicans at OWS, it's most Americans against the 1%.  That DEM vs REPUB argument is now pointless for these disaffected Republican voters.  I think we have brought plenty to the bright light in the last few months.  As Democrats, we should get past apathy, and demand what we want from our representatives, and make sure we understand it before we just go mark a "D".  As this movement grows, there will be more Dems that come out in support.  I've seen many already.  I haven't seen a whole lot of Republican Politicians agreeing with us.  We should celebrate the fact that we all still have the right to vote!  We should exercise that right en masse!!! The Republican Politicians are trying to take it away!! If Republican Politicians had been helping the poor, not attacking Women, Seniors, Students, Unions, Government Regulatory functions that keep us safe and healthy, attacking other countries, attacking gays, attacking black people, attacking brown people, attacking everyone that isn't a 'Christian'...  Then I would have voted for them.  But, since Republican Politicians seem to only be helping the uber-powerful and rich, and not the poor, I don't vote for them.  They seem to me to be the enemy of OWS too.  Is there anyone they haven't attacked???  The greed is OBSCENE.
