The People’s Party? Are We Witnessing The Birth Of A New Far Left Political Party In The United States?
Are we witnessing the birth of another new political party in the United States? The election of Barack Obama was the spark which fueled the rise of the Tea Party back in 2009, and since that time the Tea Party has become a major league force inside the Republican Party. Now the Occupy Wall Street movement is rapidly becoming more organized and many believe that “The People’s Party” is going to be to the Democrats what the Tea Party is to the Republicans. Others believe that “The People’s Party” could accomplish what a lot of organizations in the past have tried and failed to do – launch a third political party which could successfully break the stranglehold that the “two party system” has on American politics. It would certainly not be an easy thing to do, but there can be no doubt that Occupy Wall Street is now a major political force in America. The Occupy Wall Street movement has spread to 100 cities inside the United States and to nearly 1000 cities around the world. Certainly as the weather gets colder the protests will die down, but there are an increasing number of signs that Occupy Wall Street is becoming very organized and that it plans to be a major political force for years to come.
To get an idea of what is going on around the world right now, just check out this video. The Occupy Wall Street movement has become a lightning rod for the frustrations of millions of young people around the globe. A number of these protests have been going on for weeks, and there are no signs that they will be ending any time soon.
So what do these protesters want and what is next for this movement?
Well, just like the Tea Party in the early days, it really is hard to make generalized sweeping statements about this movement.
