    My problem with Occupy was that it wasn't the "left". It rejected the left, didn't want to be associated with any one political idea and, at least in my area, was over run with Paulistas out there doing their own thing.

    Occupy here was filled with people who spent all their time condemning Obama and marching in circles.

    •  Anarchists and Libertarians took the initiative, (0+ / 0-)

      sticking it out. The mainstream liberals gripped, bailed into their Volvo's and dipped-out.

      Still, despite all the edgy anarchos in charge, the targets of most GAs remain well left-of-center. Imagine that.

      I don't understand why people are confusing Occupy with MoveOn.org, the PCCC or the SEIU. Why duplicate effort? Just sign up already.
