Occupy movement got it right
11:15 a.m. EDT, September 25, 2012

Former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s column on the Occupy movement summed up the us vs. them Republican party platform (Occupy movement got America wrong," Sept. 23).

The dismissive notion the Occupy movement's goals were bigger government and entitlements from "cradle to grave" is grossly inaccurate. Though alien to Mr. Ehrlich, many Americans were and are motivated to speak out for a sustainable planet, a government "for the people" rather than corporate interests, and civil equality for all. While greed motivates some Americans, Mr. Ehrlich, you are not the majority. With income disparity skyrocketing and without campaign finance reform, the Occupy movement represents the authentic voice of the American people.
