I think a majority of protestors would agree with most of these statements. People are upset and protesting because the government bails out the banking industry and big corporations. Yes, some people think we should all be bailed out, but many more would not be upset in the first place if the banks and corporations hadn't been given handouts while the people lose their jobs and homes.
What this movement needs is a focus, and I'm pretty sure the focus on ending corporate and banking handouts to create a fair economic system is one thing that 99% of us can actually agree upon, so let's make that the focus!
