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.

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.

......have been fully victimized ny the educational octopus

Every politically controlled educational system will inculcate the doctrine of state supremacy sooner or later. . . . Once that doctrine has been accepted, it becomes an almost superhuman task to break the stranglehold of the political power over the life of the citizen. It has had his body, property and mind in its clutches from infancy. An octopus would sooner release its prey. A tax-supported, compulsory educational system is the complete model of the totalitarian state. –Isabel Paterson, The God of the Machine (1943)

Your an idiot, at least get your facts straight
1) bailouts happened under bush
2)instability, ok this can be credited to Obama
3) over taxation - by over taxation you mean how not a single tax was raised, but how temporary tax breaks were extended (bush taxes) and tons of other temporary tax breaks were given (i.e. 280B of the stimulus, making work pay, the decrease in social security withholdings etc...) so you are suggesting temporary tax break means over taxation ?:cuckoo:
4)overregulation - true to a point, but most regulation was in place long before he took office.

Proper option is NONE of the Above...which wasn't taken into account...
I've never seen a poll this poorly crafted. It assumes that everyone is coming from the position of the polster. There are no options for any dissenting opinions.

What a joke

Nowhere you can follow
"Nothing will change, the rich will get richer, and the poor will riot"

Probably, and if anything does change..Paris commune? :lol:

Nothing changes really, why do people think these protests will change anything?

Did obama get a stimulus of over a trillion dollars or not? Does he want MORE more for a new stimulous or not? Did obama not dump millions of dollars down the drain with the stupidly conceived cash for clunkers program or not? What was the unemployment rate under Bush? Did it go up or down under obama.

No matter how you slice this cake, all the slices fall to obama.

1. Those is the options, deal wit em. Prosperity or riots, it will turn one way or the other, trust me.

2. The rich "earned" their money generally by bribing pols to make loop-holes and by moving jobs overseas to get the super low wages.

3. I hope you're right about 2012 jobs, but unleashing energy jobs won't necessarily get the manufacturing jobs back.

Democrats should raise taxes and regulations until there isn't a SINGLE manufacturing job left in the country. ALL of them should leave.

Once Barack Obama--the biggest threat to business growth in this country-- is gone--this economy will explode.

“I’m saying it bluntly, that this administration is the greatest wet blanket to business, progress and job creation in my lifetime. A lot of people don’t want to say that. They’ll say, ‘Oh God, don’t be attacking Obama.’ Well, this is Obama’s deal, and it’s Obama that’s responsible for this fear in America.”

“The guy [Obama] keeps making speeches about redistribution, and maybe ‘we ought to do something to businesses that don’t invest or hold too much money.’ We haven’t heard that kind of talk except from pure socialists.”

“Business is being hammered. The business community in this country is frightened to death of the weird political philosophy of the president of the United States. Until he’s gone, everybody’s going to be sitting on their thumbs.”

You mean like Boeing building that $Billion plant in SC and not being able to use it because of the NLRB?

They are all leaving?! Where have you been?
