While the mainstream media is just starting to cover the Occupy Wall Street movement, they have been covering every word of the Republican debates for the presidential candidates. There is a good chance they may win the Presidency, however, they could not be more removed from those who have flooded out to support Occupy Wall Street.
Not only are they completely out of touch with the concerns of many young and older people, some, such as front-runner Herman Cain, have even insulted them. After the Tea Party movement, these Republicans couldn’t move fast enough to support and capitulate to them. But they have turned a deaf ear on the Occupy Wall Street movement except to ridicule them and ignore them in favor of their rich powerbrokers who they seem determined to defend.
On the side of the protesters, the Republican Party offers them absolutely nothing. The protesters realize after almost three years of President Barack Obama, voting changes nothing. The Democratic Party caters to the same pack of fat cats, even though they are not waging out-right class war against the poor (“If your not rich, blame yourself,” –Cain.)
The Republicans have adopted such ridiculous positions they seem to many of us as little more than a clown show. Outside the 5 percent of the most wealthy, only the most gullible Americans can buy this rhetorical clap-trap coming from the debates.
If these people win, they seem to believe Occupy Wall Street will just go away.
But if one of these clowns win the election, it may be like pouring gas on a fire. The Occupy Wall Street youth have been heard to say that this nations problems will cause “shit to hit the fan” in their lifetimes and they will be the ones left trying to fix the mess. There are also the sick, elderly and poor Americans missing jobs and losing homes to a regime that simply doesn’t care. The youth are also being short changed in their education. This has been a problem around the world.
Many Occupiers already know that only socialism will be able to replace capitalism. They may not make that a public statement, but many have already figured it out.
This is spilling over into other countries, such as Greece.
Whether or not we have a real revolution, It is likely that will happen somewhere in the industrial world. If it happens anywhere, it will be a victory for Marxists world wide. ឥសតិវ អតុ
