Amazing that even a 12 year old is capable of understanding what many refuse to accept here. Not only do these corrupt politicians "not" deserve our votes, they deserve to be locked up behind bars.

"...You're just 12 years old. Why do you think you understand what's wrong with the economy that you have the answer and the world leaders don't?"

"Well, I've been researching and watching documentaries and like reading books and it's not that hard to understand once you start researching. And umm...like, world leaders, they probably know what's happening, it's just they're not doing anything about it."

"Why not do you think, why don't they care?"

"I think they don't care because they're benefiting from what they're doing to us."

LOL Priceless :-)

It is priceless, Kevin.

The fact that we are having to hear our kids tell us how bad things are getting is pretty telling on the rest of us tho.

I used to get thrashed verbally for telling people the same things.

I'm so happy that we've all come to realise that a bunch of crooks are trying to mow us all under. How ironic is that?

I hear you. I just wish more people were Awake. It's happening gradually, (The Movement helped, it got the ball rolling) but we still only represent like 2% of the population. For the most part, America remains asleep and we still have alot of work to do to Wake This Country Up...to the fact that "Everythang's Corrupt": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GB0PdeU87BM

TheRising claims 40 to 50 % of Americans side with #ows.

I haven't got the stats, nor the research, but I don't for a moment believe that only 2% of Americans know that they are being cornholioed on a regular basis by people they voted in to look after their rights.

I'm all for an old-fashioned tar and feathering, and perhaps (worst-case scenario for some) a lynching or three.

We are dealing with criminals here, and make no mistake about that.

Parasitism, larceny and criminality are the 'm.o.' and as an appendix to your excellent forum-post :

fiat lux et fiat justitia ...

"TheRising claims 40 to 50 % of Americans side with #ows."

TheRising also claims that “My own view is that we have a very good system designed by the founders and that it has been temporarily hijacked by corporatists.” -therising Forum Post: America Is Not A Democracy And It Never Was A Democracy... http://occupywallst.org/forum/america-is-not-a-democracy-and-it-never-was-a-demo/

I don't have any official stats either and I think its safe to say "there are no official stats" and the only way there could be any official stats is if they did a survey and asked everybody in America individually (315,062,000 People) if they side with #OWS or not lol I've never been asked that question officially so I'm absolutely positive there are no official stats :-) What I meant really by that 2% number is that out of however many of Americans who do "know that they are being cornholioed on a regular basis by people they voted in" only about 2% are willing to "do anything about it" to effect real change. Most everyone I know who sided with The Movement and watched Obama continue the pro-1% policies of the Bush administration for 4 straight years ended up Voting For Him Again! lol Because they are still caught up in this corrupt-2party, lesser-of-2-evils non-sense. When someone like Jill Stein of The Green Party was the obvious choice if anyone wanted to get political about the Movement. And she ended up receiving less than 1% of the vote. All we needed was 5% of the vote for The Green Party to receive gov. funding to become an official third party to compete with the republicrats and to be allowed into the debates.

"We are dealing with criminals here", but if I were you, I would go look into the mirror and ask yourself if you really support this Movement or not, when you start advocating for "a lynching or three"??? This is a Non-Violent Movement. And you only discredit it when you say stupid shit like that.
