Guess what? I'm a liberal-leaning independent. I've given food to the homeless countless times. I don't have an ipad, hipster glasses, or goatee. I hardly ever go to Starbucks. I don't mindlessly support everything Obama says or does. I don't want to kill your babies or abolish your religion. By making that generalization, you're the hypocrite.

You can't generalize an entire group based on the actions of a few.

using big government to force equalization is exactly what democrats advocate for, it's hardly a mere generalization

99% of democrats don't give to homeless shelters so you can hardly represent the party

I'm not representing the party. Technically, I don't even belong to the party. But I know plenty of Liberals who are honest, non-hypocritical people who go out of their way to help the poor, just as I know plenty of Republicans who do the same thing. I'm just saying it's not fair to stereotype a whole group because of some assholes.

actually, most of the people who vote democrat don't follow the news, have system of values on which to vote on, and don't give a damn what happens in washington
They just vote democrat because the internet told them to.

being for gay marriage doesn't automatically make you democrat, yet a huge chunk of those voters think it does

That's another generalization. I could say all Republicans vote that way because Fox news told them to, but that wouldn't be fair either. I tend to vote Democrat because: A. I'm an Environmental Science major, and I'm educated enough to know that there are countless, demanding issues in our environment that need to be resolved, or at the very least, ameliorated, and the Democratic Party has done far more than the Republican Party to solve these issues. B: I don't condone the unnecessary wars that today's Republican Party tend to get involved in. C. I believe that gay people have every right to get married, and we have no right to tell them that they can't. D. I believe that diversity should be encouraged, not looked down upon. The Republican Party stresses conformity, to an extreme. E. The majority of the Republican Party chooses to hold onto antiquated beliefs, and refuses to accept science in fear of change.
I don't agree with every platform of the Democrats, but their policies are much more agreeable with my beliefs than those of the Republicans. I don't vote Democrat because people tell me to. I live in Alabama; 80% of people here tell me to vote Republican. I vote Democrat because the party's belief system matches mine much more closely.

I never said I was supportive of it, and I'm not at all. That's my point. I certainly don't agree wholeheartedly with the Democratic Party. But, right now, we're on a two-party system, and I agree more with the Democrats. The Party in a whole does some stupid things. But until we're able to break the two-party system, we have to settle for who we agree most with.

The Alternative Vote Explained Likewise a lot of republicans disagree with the party's reluctance to support gay marriage, but we still vote for them because allowing government to grow beyond control is a bigger problem.

In all honesty, both of the political parties are ****** up in their own way. That is why I am independent. If I see a president who I think will run the country well, I will vote for him. Political parties are just ******** that is dividing the country.

It's a large amount of younger people who are very angry at wall street workers. Most of the youth thinks that the rich economic business men should give out their money to the rest of the country (AKA the not-so-rich-teenagers) and make everything "equal"

now, on to a biased opinion, it's a bunch of stupid liberal kids who don't want to work and just want everything handed to them. The comic makes a joke about how kids want the rich to give up their money to the poor, and now a kid is in the same situation as the rich business men....

Occupy was a ******* joke. They have legitimate reasons to be angry. The fractional reserve system giving disproportionate opportunity to those with money. The constant wealth growth resulting in exponential growth for the rich while the poor simply have their wages inflated. Hell the student loan system is broken. But what did they say?

"JUST PRINT MORE MONEY LOL! TAX THE RICH 99.9999999%!"

Well, the movement is to get the very rich 20% (if the 80-20 rule is true, probably actually 95-5) to give to the poorest people. I don't agree with it, but I just wanted to say that the people doing that are not saying everyone gives an expensive item to a nearby bum. It's more Robin Hood style, but rather than stealing, it's just being the hippie of today.

I still don't get the whole "occupy Wall Street" thing. Well I mean I kind of get it, but I need some clearing up. Aren't the people who work wall street Capatalists? If so, then Capatalism is where if you work hard then you should reap the benefits of a job well done. Isn't that what they are doing? If so, then I see nothing wrong with it. But if that's not the case then tell me what I am missing. I come here to ask a real question, and I don't want to start any fights.

Capitalism isn't about working hard, really, it's about economic competition and maximising profits. Basically, those who work hard (e.g. construction) earn inconceivably less than those who don't work at all (e.g. mayor shareholders without an actual seat). Thus, wealth accumulates, but in a very polarised way.
Wall Street represents the companies, not as much the individuals, that accumulate this wealth without actually working for it. While the individuals on Wall Street do work, a lot of the profits go to such shareholders.

I live in Fresno California. we had a big occupy wallstreet rally but absolutely nobody paid them any attention. lather that night a local news reporter said that when the protest leader contact the city government, the mayor told them to quit calling themselves "occupy Fresno" they can just have the city.

The elite have suggested that the protesters should be helping the poor, while they (the elite) themselves should do nothing. The protesters suggest that the elite should be helping the poor, while they (the protesters) should do nothing. An idealist suggests that everyone should be helping the poor, while the poor should be helping themselves, until everyone is even. An intelligent person knows that none of these options would work because the elite and the protesters alike can't get their heads out of their ass.

Well, actually there's a slight flaw in that logic. The elite in this model isn't telling the protesters to help the poor, it's saying the protesters can't tell them to help the poor unless they do so as well.

A lot of the "elite"'s actual belief is that by incentivising people to create business we are improving the global economy in the long term, and that giving everyone's wealth away isn't a long term solution. Of course that isn't fully true either and there has to be some solidarity, but what's for sure is it's less hypocritical than what many of those protesters say.
