    your visibility would not help the cause.  There is more than one way to wage a campaign.  In this case, I think the President can be more effective working behind the scenes than being a lighting rod in public.

      'cause last I checked, DHS and the FBI were enabling the police forces cracking down - literally, with batons and shields - on peaceful protestors.

        When basic democratic values are ignored or shoved aside and the Constitution is tossed onto the rubbish heap, it's time for us to realize that REAL CHANGE must come for us.  It's become a kabuki theater with the mostly Democratic silence when important issues demand everyone to pick a side.

        Are they siding with the Banksters and Wall Streeters with their silence in hopes of raising campaign cash?

        Until we get money out of politics and elections, we won't know.

        There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
