Let’s Merge the Tea Party and OWS: Part II

Posted by Larry Doyle on October 18th, 2011 5:11 PM |

Should the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street try to join forces under the auspices that they have much more in common from a macro standpoint than what may differentiate them from a micro standpoint?

I would love to see these movements join together. I think a merger of these forces could lead to the third party our country so badly needs.

Comments left on my post yesterday, Let’s Merge the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street, covered a wide scope of thoughts and opinions.  I appreciated the range of views and personal experience with OWS shared by readers.  I understand that a merged entity would certainly not fit easily into any sort of politically defined group as we have come to expect.

Isn’t that the point? Haven’t we allowed ourselves to be defined by the media and the political establishment? Isn’t it time that those who aspire for an unfiltered access to the truth turn the tables on the power bases in Washington, New York, and elsewhere? (more…)

Let’s Merge the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street

There is strength in numbers, right? No doubt.

There is also strength in scale, strong organization, defining one’s place in the market and then accentuating all of the above.

Thanks to a loyal reader whose recent comment prompted me to think of how and why a merger of the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street movements should occur.

Why do mergers work? In my opinion, successful mergers accomplish the following:
1. Define a need and opportunity within the marketplace.

2. Develop a unified vision in joining forces which looks for far reaching and grand common goals.

3. Agree to make the shared sacrifice which marginalizes those inside and outside the individual units which would prefer the status quo or a variation thereof.

4. Realize that prior to winning future battles, nothing can and will be accomplished unless there is an acceptance and agreement on the points above.

Against this backdrop, why do I think those involved in both the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street movements should merge?  (more…)
