    According to a completely other troublador OWS are the ones that defeated Romney. Didn't you get that memo?

    These shifts in discourse that spiked in October of 2011 altered our social and political landscapes permanently........And this ultimately brought Mitt Romney to his knees, for in this context, he became even more vulnerable as a candidate than he already was. .........And for this, Occupy Wall Street is largely responsible.
    afraid your info is out of date, OWS brought down Romney, according to OWS, for which they modestly take almost all the credit. . I'd call that doing politics but evryone knows OWS doesnt' do politics

    Happy just to be alive

      contrary to the prediction/thought otherwise: apparently the youth vote was again strong for Obama.

      Not sure if the OWS had anything to do with this-- but I doubt it.
