There are stark contrasts between the Occupiers and the Tea Party in terms of both direction and how they present themselves. Put simply, the former wants things without earning them, concentrating more on complaining about the problem than offering a tangible solution, and leaves behind a wave of waste, racism, violence, and arrest records. The latter would prefer to go about their lives unfettered, trusting that all levels of government adhere to the limited authority given them, but instead see a level of intrusion so antithetical to the American way of life that they are bound to rein in the charge away from liberty.
Whenever you see a Tea Party you do not see racism or violence, but a peaceful and patriotic voicing of opinion, and a dedication to cleaning up after themselves. Yet we have a bygone and wholly slanted media intent on forcing the image of the Occupiers onto the Tea Party.
Cut through the media narrative, and pay attention to what each group stands for or against. From their solutions see what will bring America back to prosperity, or continue its path to financial and cultural ruin.
