I am in absolute support of the OWS movement.   Our country has been taken over by greed and profligacy.  WE THE PEOPLE need to take it back from corporations and revoke their personhood.

For everyone who supports the occupy movement- I have a question. Please explain to me exactly how this movement will create change? I agree with a lot of their complaints but do not see how this will change the way our govt operates. please explain!

i support the 'theory' of the occupy movement.  but i think they're going about it in the wrong way now.  i think it's time has passed and they've not accomplished a lot.

I agree that Wall Street and government are too intermingled and have too much power.  As far as the occupy protesters, I don't agree with all that they do in their movement.

I am the 99%. Wall Street and government have taken this country to the brink and it needs to change direction and I want to be there to see it. I believe in Occupy and will stand up with everything I have to defend it.

 Beware, nana: that's going to make you a target.

I'm a proud OWS supporter.

 I'm with you.  I agree with the idea that Wall Street has way too much influence in our government to the detriment of the overwhelming majority of Americans.  But I'm disappointed with the movement's ineffectiveness.  Although, I do have to wonder how much of that has been a result of corporate-owned media being successful in marginalizing the movement. 

It was interesting to watch...At the height of the movement our media focused on stories that made it look like people didn't really know what they were protesting.  Yet, if you watched news stories in the international press, it was very clear what they were protesting and what the movement stood for.  I think our media has been successful in making it look like a directionless movement by people who really don't know why they're there.  Because of that it has lost momentum.
