The year 2012 is shaping up to be a clash of cultures, says Kiplinger. Tea Partyers vs. Occupy Wall Streeters are fighting for the minds….and votes…of those in between. But it’s more than just the have and have nots, as some are saying, a fight over capitalism. It’s really about Washington, not Wall Street…a showdown over the size and reach of the government that will shape policy for at least the rest of the decade.
The ultimate success of the movement hinges on its finding a dance partner. Don’t be surprised if labor unions step up their backing, looking to cut into a period of declining influence. Other liberal groups may get involved too. But linking too closely to specific causes may cost the protesters some public support.
Note from Petey… I wonder how many of the protesters have spent as much time and energy trying to get a job? Whatcha think?
