Occupiers vs. Liberal Politicians

"Portland Mayor Sam Adams is a self-described strong liberal, but despite sharing the politics of many anti-Wall Street protesters who rocked his city, he has also emerged as one of their harshest critics.

Adams told Reuters this week in an interview at City Hall in Portland that the movement had lost its focus.

The Oregon mayor's running argument with the Occupy movement, much of it conducted openly over Twitter, points to a similar rift between left-wing protesters and liberal politicians in cities across the country, from Los Angeles to Atlanta.
Occupy protesters have denounced economic inequality and the perceived undue power of the wealthy. But they have also clashed with liberal politicians in ways that suggest the movement will not necessarily align with Democratic officials and candidates, political analysts said."

It is not surprise the misunderstanding for the occupiers since the monopoly of government and the political process dominated by the Democrats and Republicans, the two party system, has become the problem and not the solution; basically the "crisis makers" and the basis of the national stagnation.

The political parties suppose to work together to bring the best of the people and the nation. That is the ultimate "focus" of the occupiers. 

"There are again two methods of removing the causes of faction: the one, by destroying the liberty which is essential to its existence; the other, by giving to every citizen the same opinions, the same passions, and the same interests." Because neither of these are possible factions must exist. However, the way to maintain a balance of power is through a "multiplicity of faction."

When mayor Michael Bloomberg came behind the No Labels movement, a year ago, maybe he never thought that the occupiers will take seriously the call to action to be arrested by his orders.

"We’ve seen a government more concerned with tallying partisan points than engaging in the politics of problem-solving," states No Labels. 

"The Armed Forces and the Police are only loyal to their salaries, so they will never be on the side of the 99%," somebody said. 

The irony is that the 99% pay taxes so they can have their salaries and the 1% don't necessary pay taxes and don't want to even consider paying taxes. Most members of Congress and the Senate from both parties work for the 1% American people.

The politicians we elect to serve us once they are in office they ignore their constituents. The difference with China is that we elect our tyrants.

Hopefully the Armed Forces and the Police will realize their loyalty is to the Constitution and to the people (American taxpayers) that pay for their salaries.
