#OWS isn't dead. It's just getting started.
#OccupyWallStreet was deeply unsettling to the wealthy ruling class because it reminded them that WE THE PEOPLE haven't completely deteriorated into brain-dead, wage-slave zombies just yet. The top 1% knows we overwhelmingly outnumber them, which is precisely why democracy bothers them, my friends. This is why they desperately seek to weaken our collective voice with redistricting schemes, blatantly racist voter ID card laws, and every other dirty trick in the book -- the Republicans are frightened we'll USE democracy to make this world a better, fairer place. And I propose we do exactly that.

5. And TPTB will do everything in their power to stop us.
And I betcha they'll start by dragging out Kalle Lasn's name all over again just like they did back last fall. And if those kinds of gambit don't work, you can expect them to start to do the full Monty. They are scared of Occupy, especially thanks to the recent successes by our good friends in Libya, with their holding down both Gaddafi's thugs and the Islamist fanatics in that country.
And in general, TPTB are really going to start yanking out all the proverbial stop signs, especially if Obama wins another term.
What really scares me is, how far will they be willing to go?
