You are wrong, the media is reporting with rose colored glasses. My ABC morning news has been fairly non-partisan..which is odd for them. But pretty much all other places, including my progressive radio channel (820-Chicago AM) drools over the wonderful heros and their mission.

Fox is just the opposite. The MSM trys to tell us it is a anticapitalism prosocialist movement and no mention that the Federal Reserse is the real problem. I hope the movement does not get hijacked and turned into something that would steer it away from the Fed issue. Crony capitalism/corporatism is what needs to be removed.

I see a lot of Ron Paul signs in the OWS group. I think it is the educated young people who see no future because both parties are so corrupt and have ruined the country. I have said for about three years now, Libertarian is the only answer, and I think the young people see it. There are not only no more answers in the Dems and the Repubs, all both parties do is run up debt on us and harm the country in so many ways. There really is no other answer left but Ron Paul and to go Libertarian no matter who tries to do what. NO matter what the Dems sell, their pension promises ARE going to bankrupt the states soon. No matter they promise SS and Medicare, it all goes indigent only soon. No matter how many more oil wars the Repubs want, we will default on our debt and go under. At the end of the day, the country is faced with going Libertarian out of necessity. Obama is at the point of running up one trillion dollars of debt per year just to prop up the state pensions. Without him running up a trillion dollars of debt on us each year, the state pensions collapse. All the Repubs are offering is making the one percent even richer, funneling them more and more money and taking the entire tax burden off of them and dumping it onto their poor victims, they offer more wars, ending regulations and more tax cuts for the rich. None of this crap can be financially sustained for more than about one more year. Libertarian means no welfare, no entitlements, no wars for oil, no income taxes, no funding the federal government. This is exactly where it is going no matter what group wants want out of the government. There is NO more money, no jobs, no stable economy and a permanently tanked housing market. None of them can fix any of it. Like Ron Paul says you have to let the market correct.

"Unlike Obama, Romney took office during an economic uptick. Massachusetts had a net job growth of 1.4 percent under Romney. However, that was far slower growth than the national average of 5.3 percent. As Romney’s opponents have frequently, and correctly, noted, Massachusetts ranked 47th in job growth over the entirety of Romney’s term. The only states that did worse: Louisiana, Michigan and Ohio."

Warren could easily run a billion or 1.5 billion dollar campaign without a leaving Massachusets and leave GOP Corporate Serfs (Sand Paul,CHRISTie, Rubio, Cruz,in the dust..Virginia/North Carolina are the key States for 2016..Warren wins those and EvanHELLical ConSERFatism is over in the US for all time..Warren/Booker 2016 donors are ready to support this platform and make her a multi-millionaire with or without Clinton (I like her, but Im worried about her insider image)

She obliterated NeoCon Sen. Brown and has donors telling her she can be the first Female President of a Western Industrialized Superpower..Her campaign has a billion in the bank-Its over for the ConSERFatives
