At last weekend’s Left Forum 2012, the annual pep-rally for liberal thought, renown leftist professor and activist Frances Fox Piven shown some light onto the makeup of the current America Left. In this minute of audio, Piven tells the packed auditorium which worldview philosophies embody their movement: According to Frances Fox Piven: •The Occupy Movement is made up of “All parts of the Left.” •That includes proudly: “Democrats, Socialists, Communists, Anarchists.” •Must all work together because of the “Huge task of transforming America and the world.” •“We are all together”

I really detest the "transform America" concept embraced by the left. Transform it into what exactly? Socialism? Nanny Welfare State? EcoNazism?

How about real Free Market Capitalism for big and small business as universal employment and health care for the rest of us. Just the opposite of what we are currently cursed with.
