Occupy Wall Street protesters were a group of brave individuals who took a stand on the issues that they believed in, they should never be addressed as occupiers. The individuals that are a part of the Tea Party movement want American citizens to believe that the Occupy Wall Street protestors are nothing but occupiers. If they can control the way American citizens think in issues such as the debt crisis and on how to resolve the deficit than they can persuade the people to choose solutions to the problems that will benefit the party instead of the people. Instead of opening up the argument so that the citizens can have a say in the decision like the occupiers strive to do, they want to close the argument
The picketing of Wilson was so controversial because no one had ever publically opposed President Wilson. In addition to this many citizens found it disrespectful to oppose a wartime president in the midst of war. Citizens were enraged, along with troops. They felt that at this time the war was the only fight America should be involved in, and the fight for women should not be dwelled on. Likewise in England the suffragettes themselves agreed that they should stop their use of violence in the fight for suffrage during the wartime.
Even inside the borders of our great nation, the Constitution shows that it’s still relevant to the American society. For example, the 27th amendment says that Congressmen and women can’t raise their salary while in office. If this amendment weren’t in place, then our debt wouldn’t be to China; instead it would be to the Congressional Officers of the United State government. Now to reference into foreign countries again; in some countries like South Africa, the right of women’s and colored person’s suffrage isn’t allowed. In other countries like Libya the right to vote is granted to no one because they are either under a dictatorship or the entire country is in mass chaos.
No more freedom, it used to be virtually impossible to get out of the USSR, the country owned you; no more freedom?

On top of this, vertical integration put all the money and power into the hands of a few people that controlled whole industries and there was no attempt to regulate or try to monitor the system (Vries, 03 25 2003). The government needed to regulate businesses. and TR tried to fix it but was demonized and called “un-American”. He didn't want to restore competition at a lower level but wanted to show JP Morgan and Carnegie that they also had to feel democracy and follow the rules, no matter how wealthy they were they weren't an exception to equality (Vries, 03 25 2003). Roosevelt believed that the government had the right and the responsibility to regulate big business so that its actions did not
Occupy Wall Street members will find many of Mill’s observations and conclusions relevant to today’s society. The “One Percent” represents many of the “Power Elite” and the control and influence they have on US policies in both at home and abroad. Mills criticism of US society and politics for its lack of democracy, class inequalities, and increasing militarism can be heard in the voices of protesters on Wall Street. Occupiers represent people who have put aside apathy and hopelessness to become a voice of change for American politics. They have realized that we need to make a change and disrupt the status quo.
Jillian Taft AP Government Mr. Hardin Is the Media Biased? Health Law is Dividing Republican Governors | This editorial was written by Jonathan Martin of the New York Times. Martin reveals the Republican Governors will use the fiasco of The Affordable Care Act in Washington DC to their advantage while running for reelection. He explained this in a neutral manner, however, the author then takes a biased turn never returning to a neutral position.

The privileged group, the 1%, does not want to give up power and change specific (tax) laws or wealth distribution to implement drastic change in the country. In his letter, which is written from jail, Dr. King states that, “we know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed”. This idea was evident during the times of the Civil Rights movement, and it is parallel today in the Occupy movement. The protestors are out in the streets demanding for their voices to be heard, to have a fair shake, and to influence positive change in the lives of the 99% of citizens in this country who are suffering at the hands of the most
Make Love Not War While the popular anthem of Sex, Drugs, and Rock ‘n Roll sent shock waves across America, the message of peace and love brought light to the new civil rights movement and the devastating war in Vietnam. At the center of this revolution was the hippie. Often referred to as freaks, stoners, and lazy, dirty, bums, the hippie experienced extreme social discrimination. What most failed to realize was that hippies were actually the most influential figures of the time period. Hippies were vital to American counterculture, fueling a movement to stretch accepted values, increase environmental awareness, and open ears to a generation of new music.
In the past the only time you heard of the GLBT in society or the media was when there were crimes committed against them.
