      Today is 2011.   Occupy Wall Street is about the future.   If your plan for the future is more of the same, well, I guess you don't support Occupy Wall Street because it is about anything but maintaining the status quo.

        change the system. only politicians can do that.

        it is which politicians that are in power that will make the future.

        that is how we change it.

        we have rule of law (even when those laws aren't enforced or are altered by a right wing ussc).  we need to elect those people who will ENACT the laws if they aren't already on the books.

        we need to know which politicians want to repeal laws that protect us.  we need to know which PARTY will undercut the middle class.

        anything else is non-productive.  we live in a political society - and the ows movement, IF it organizes politically to pressure politicians to enact - will make the future better.

        if the ows movement tries to stay OUT of political elections, then it becomes irrelevant, no matter how much we wish otherwise.

        ows now has political capital.  how it spends that capital will be how it shapes the future.

          Enjoy your diary and pretend I wasn't even here.   I'm really crabby this am, and your diary didn't help my mood by reminding me of how hopeless the Democratic Party really is.  You see.  I should be retired, but I can't leave my job because I don't trust Obama and my tea baggin' governor to not to destroy what's left of my retirement savings and plan.    

          I hope you had a great thanksgiving, and please accept my apology for grumbling into your rec. diary.
