And, in the long term we shall win, because we have the numbers.
I was referring to 'moderate' (as opposed to hard-core) GOP figures, ok? You have no idea what I was saying in my post. Just complete misunderstanding.

Calm down now . . .note I said the "overwhelming majority" not "all". And even your support has at the very least been analytical no? Rather than blind and unquestioning?

So is it that your suggesting that most of FYM given their views SHOULD be supporting OWS blindly?

If so that only reveals your willfull insistence on creating straw men rather than debating real people.

But..but....anarchists!!! University students! Socialist community groups!

Please...nothing more than a distraction to keep voters fighting over the scraps while politicians rob this country blind. Go back to worrying about inconsequential shit like gay marriage because your conservative media overlords tell you it's an important battle in this day and age.

This chart sums OWS vs Tea Party succinctly. I'm putting it under a spoiler tag because it's reaaaaally long, albeit colorful and entertaining!

1) What do Occupy protests in Spain, Italy and Germany have to do the stated beefs against American bank executives, American campaign laws and the American tax code? Foreign protests don't count.

2) Those arrest totals are woefully out of date.

3) Where's the stat on positive vs negative news coverage as presented by the MSM? Let's just say they were very sympathetic to OWS.

4) The public opinion polls have turned drastically against OWS since this chart was made.

1) I think it just brings up the question/point as to why there is no support for conservative tea party folk overseas. Remove them and the number for the US is still overwhelming against the tea party numbers. I'm just talking numbers. Please don't jump down my throat. I don't even like OWS.

2) Probably, but it takes time to make grafix this nice. There is a + next to it, you know. And the number is still overwhelming versus the tea party numbers. The point is proven regardless.

3) Where do you start? The major channels + cable news. Do we include The Daily Show and The O'Reilly Report in the "news spectrum" as most people do? I think if you tried, it would be incredibly inaccurate, not to mention a differing opinion between positive and neutral or negative and neutral since tone is totally subjective. It's probably impossible to gauge those numbers accurately.

4) I think you'll find that support for protests lessens over time in general. People get tired of seeing other people waste time and energy. Even protesters become apathetic over time. Different reasons for protesting emerge as people just break off into smaller and smaller fringe groups and the message gets lost. I'd wager that support for the TP was high at the beginning when it actually was something set up as a grassroots movement, but the moment political leaders got involved, it nosedived. OWS has different issues, but in the beginning, before they got annoying, the numbers were higher than they are today.

I'm just talking numbers. Please don't jump down my throat. I don't even like OWS.


Out of curiosity, what networks, radio shows, newspapers and magazines don't fall under the umbrella term of "Mainstream Media"?

This is not a "gotcha" question. You don't have to watch/listen/read to list it. I just want to see a list of media that is somehow not in the general public's radar, yet so much more drastically in tune with the heart of America.

ABC, CBS, NBC, AP Wire, NY Times, Wash Post and sorta CNN.

Also know as "old" media as they used to be Americans sole source of news prior to talk radio, the internet and the cable news explosion.
