Occupy Los Angeles. Occupy Tulsa. Occupy Houston. Occupy Seattle. Occupy Boston. Occupy New York City. Occupy Denver…

Occupy America.

This is the progressive version of, or solution to, the Tea Party. If you can’t beat them, don’t join them; make your own haphazard party of individuals who have absolutely no solution to any of the problems being protested.

After all of the slander the Tea Party has endured from the left, they continue to seek definitive, well-articulated solutions to the problems they find in the federal government (the Tea Party did not want more taxes so they and others who do not even identify themselves as Tea Party backers put men and women into Congress in 2010 who promised to not raise taxes, the Tea Party wants no part of Obamacare so they and others who do not even identify themselves as Tea Party backers sought law suits and are pursuing an interstate compact to avoid Barack Obama’s legislation, the Tea Party and others who do not even identify themselves as Tea Party backers do not understand why illegal aliens are so entitled when so many perfectly legal citizens are struggling so unfairly...

The list goes on and on, and here is the difference between Occupy America and the Tea Party. One group does not have any solutions for the problems they identify. The other does. One group is getting arrested in the streets by the hundreds. The other is not. One group wants four more years of Barack Obama. The other wants Someone Else. One group wants failed Socialistic governance. The other wants America.

Point is, the Tea Party has and continues to take the necessary steps outlined by the laws we have set in place, through civility, problem-solving, and sheer logic to bring about the changes they and so many others desire from the inner-most cores of their Constitutional hearts.

Occupy America, by the name alone, suggests and has exhibited nothing more than a culmination of the same chaos we have been experiencing for the last three years. Their cause and their inability to even articulate into words what exactly it is that they want is a testimony of how frustrating and unexplainable times are right now in America.

When I was twenty-years-old, I would have loved to have been a part of this movement and to take to the streets with a clever sign and a clenched fist in the air, just to say, “Yeah, man, I was there. It was awesome. We really stuck it to the man!”

But I haven’t been twenty in thirteen years and I no longer have the patience for actions that serve no purpose except to disrupt the progress of an entire nation.

We are one year, one month, and two days away from possibly saving this country. Someone Else 2012!

883.8 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day36.
