    A self-described "Wall Street occupier" has some advice for Democrats:

    "Dear Democratic Party,

    Cave into pressure from us.

    Do it.
    Go whole hog with it.
    Now is your moment.

    "You have never had the type of political cover you have now, and you never will again. Stick a big middle finger up in the direction of Wall Street, fire your revolving-door-begotten staffers, declare yourself now and forever the party of working people, and be done with it...

    "You will be seen as hypocritical, and this assertion will be just.

    "After all, you spent the first few years of this global economic crisis letting Wall Street sweethearts do whatever they felt like doing with the American economy. Sweethearts like Tim Geithner, whom bankers call 'our man in Washington.'

    "Sweethearts like Larry Summers, whose major career achievement is deregulating the derivatives market in the 1990s. Sweethearts like Chris Dodd, whose top three lifetime contributors were, in ascending order, the American Bankers Association, JP Morgan Chase and Bank of America, before he retired.

    "Sweethearts like Barney Frank, whose top staffer, Michael Paese, cashed out after writing the 'financial regulation reform' bill by becoming director of governmental affairs at Goldman Sachs.

    "President Obama, who, in 2004, took in more than ten times from Goldman Sachs what President Bush had taken in from Enron, is hemorrhaging banker support to Mitt Romney anyway - corrupt financial bigwigs are reportedly seething with fury at the Democrats who've had nice things to say about Occupy Wall Street."

    Which of the above losers would you kill (or die) for?

    Stand tall for Goldman Sachs.

    Richest 1% of Americans versus 99%.

    Like those odds?

    Love it! I'm all in!

    But Dems are fucking liars and won't publicly admit their party is to the left of the Communist Party.

    You're the lunatic fringe and your "ideas" fail 100% of the time
