2012 will be an interesting election year
it just seems like people will pay attention this time and OWS will be a huge motivating factor potentially leading to a rise in candidates without a political party attachment. The American people can't stand both the Republicans and the Democrats, and it seems like a rise in candidates backed by the OWS movement will bring in a legitimate 3rd party for 2012. Bernie Sanders/Alan Grayson for OWS anyone? A fourth party could potentially rise with Ron Paul potentially running as a Libertarian with Jesse Ventura potentially as his running mate. So for the general election in 2012, we could have 4 parties making an impact: Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, OWS. This is just my view, what do you guys think?

1. I agree.. And with that 60 min. interview showing how our congress
becomes wealthy while telling the working people and poor they are too expensive to deserve medicare, jobs, social security, and other basic elements of a well governed society..

2. I think 2012 will start the fall of the Democratic and Republican parties to be replaced by whatever
OWS and the Libertarian movements. I watched the debate tonight, I don't agree with Ron Paul on everything, but on foreign policy, I'm with him.

3. For the most part I have an upset stomach all election season. Until
the last vote is counted I am scared. Our world is in critical condition and it matters.
