The Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street are The Same

I believe the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street are essentially the same.

They both want to use the force of the government to accomplish their desires.

The Tea party wants to use the force of the government, veiled by a fake devotion to the Constitution, to ensure their retirement and medical coverage and to protect the military-industrial complex. They view the government as a parent who is the world's disciplinarian and who should reward you at the end of your life if you've been a good little taxpayer all along.

The Occupy Wall Street group wants to use the force of the government to confiscate the wealth of the top "1%" and redistribute it evenly to the "working class." They see the problems of crony capitalism and mistakenly blame the free market, when no such thing exists. They see banksters getting trillion dollar bailouts from the government and they blame capitalism and point to government as the solution. It is insanity in its purest form. They couldn't care less about our foreign policy now that a Democrat is in office, but they aren't satisfied with the pace of wealth redistribution and they want their socialism now, not 4 years from now. They see the government as the great equalizer who's main function is to make sure we all have equality of results, no matter what.

Fundamentally, they are the same. They both think the government should control our lives, they just differ on the means of control and the desired outcomes.
