    What influence do you think the Occupy Wall Street movement will have on the 2012 presidential election?

    This OWS movement resonates with young people. The young people of today are a bunch of whiny, self-centered, what-can-I-take people. The democratic candidate (surely Obama) that endorses and speaks highly of the OWS movement will have a higher showing of young voters than in any previous election. The liberals have been after the young vote hard since the early 90's and have been highly successful. This will just be one more step for them to dominate that people group.

    I am wondering if some judge will rule that OWS protestors should be able to vote where ever they are protesting rather than in their district.

    Or perhaps special polling booths will be set up at OWS protest sites.

    Hopefully they will vote for fringe, third party candidates and not Obama. And convince their whiny, self-centered, what-can-I-take friends to do likewise. <g>
