The unfortunate part is that the protesters aren't exactly sure what they're trying to say or perhaps they're not getting at the most important things. The focus of the protests will probably become more clear as it progresses but the way I see it is that people are pointing out that what we're doing is totally unsustainable in a number of ways here.
Most of the people who want everything handed to them are largely at home collecting government checks probably hoping this all blows over.
Call it what you want, but the people who started this, were mostly college students who couldn't get a job, after getting their degree. And yes, they are liberals. And yes, none of them have a set goal, and most of them have no clue why they are even there. The same people who are out there, are the same people who voted for open. College students flooded the polls in droves, and that's exactly what they are doing now. And, they want their dear leader for a second term, to fix all the problems for them.
Everything I've seen about this, is people who want free college, and free everything. They want Obama to give them everything.
