This week's poll: What do you think about the Occupy Wall Street / 99% Movement?

We are the 99%What started on September 17 as a relatively small demonstration in Lower Manhattan has blossomed into a global revolution where the main focus is against corporate greed and corporate influence in government.  At GodDiscussion.com, we have been reporting on this movement from the very beginning because of its contrast with the Christian nationalist views being presented by the Religious Right. Individual writers on the site might have opinions about the Occupy movement, but the site itself does not currently endorse or condemn it.

The New York movement has published an initial list of issues, but the demonstrations as a whole do not have specific goals or leaders.

Where do you think this movement is headed?

Our unscientific poll allows for up to four selections, and will remain open until the early morning of Sunday, October 23.  Comments are welcome and wanted, especially for those who vote "other."  If it is your first time commenting on the site, your comment is held in moderation. Once your very first comment is approved, all the rest should automatically publish so long as they comply with our terms and conditions.

Thanks in advance for voting!

    A hundred percent is not not an assurance that is why they were able to come up with the right decision of living 1%. I am sure many will be interested with this and they will also have their own opinion about this issue or protest.

    Mobilizing the vote like the religious right? that is like saying "out of the 2 puppets the lobbiests give us to vote for who shall we choose the antichrist or the false prophet?" Isn't this what the occupy movement is about, I mean reforming this sham of a democratic system to something completely new like a government of the people for the people and not a system that has the 1% kicking the homeless so they can take the last 17 cents out of their pocket to keep this fantasy of an economy going. Believing in an "economy" that is a figment of our imagination and hands control of our lives to the elites. If we all just came out of Babylon and did what John the baptist said to do there would not be 1% with to much and 99& feeding them but all would have enough, my mom and yours called it sharing.

    I think they have total it as 99% because there is a doubt on it that why they left a 1% on this wall street issue because it is lack of assurance.

    Corporate greed in the US and other countries has certainly seen an uprising of protests
