    The OWS is just the first sign that the masses (99%) are getting very angry at the wealthy. This is just a wild guess, but it seems very likely that because the wealthy moved 5.5m manufacturing jobs overseas, as well as outsourcing millions of other non-manufacturing jobs, that the masses will not go quietly into the night.
    Call it "Class Warfare" or Class Envy, or Capitalism, or whatever you want, but when there are no jobs, people get angry. They will hold their pols accountable. It will be very interesting to see the cross-voting patterns of 2012, and what gets cut, "entitlements" or "defense" or if they finally go after closing tax loop-holes.

    While all these things have happened, they have happened at the design of democrat policies and they should take full responsibility and blame.

    Something will happen, that's for sure. It ain't gonna continue the way it's been going for the last 30 years. It will reach a tipping point. What you're seeing all over the world with OWS is a survival mechanism on a very fundamental, biological level.

    Hopefully our 'leaders' will get their heads about themselves and find a middle ground before this shit gets real ugly...

    Not the last 30 years, but the last 3 years! Just since obama was immaculated. No one wants to say that though. The trillions of dollars in bailouts, the instability, over taxation, overregulation, all since obama.

    Happened under Bush.
    We've been "unstable" for decades.
    Taxes are currently at their lowest point in decades.
    Not really.
    No.

    Your poll is such a joke. There is no proper options.

    The rich earned their money and the poor ARE NOT ENTITLED TO IT.

    Unemployment will come down when the idiot in office is voted out.
