    I think the Tea Party and OWS Movements both have some very legitimate beefs. I think they're actually similar in a lot of ways. But there are big differences too. So what do you think? Which Movement suits you best?

    I see one vote so far for supporting both. That's interesting but is it possible?

    They have legitimate beefs when it comes to Government and Wall Street. They were onto something early on with their protests. But the protests changed as time went by. Now it seems to only be about someone owing them something because they deserve it. But they had it right in the beginning. Now they have lost a lot of support though.

    The end does not justify the means.

    There is a reason why the OWS movement is 30X bigger than the Tea Party movement...

    I voted for OWS but I prefer the protest behavior of the Tea Party. I guess I could of voted for both.

    Well as I bathe regularly and practice other forms of hygiene I have to go with the Tea Party.

    Yea but grabbing Taxpayer Freebies is very enticing so i expect that kind of Movement to have more followers. This is 'Generation Gimme' after all.

    I ask because I look at their list of demands that they released in the first few days of the first protest and there is nothing legit in there. I do know that originally there were some Libertarians there, I remember seeing a video of a Paul supporter there but I think that that message is long gone.
