Description : Is it possible? Can it be that those who would identify themselves as sympathetic to the 'Occupy Wall Street' movement have something in common with those who would are sympathetic to the 'Tea Party'? What might this mean for a political environment more and more of us are becoming convinced is stacked against ordinary people? Here is what that might look like, told from the perspective of one who, while sympathizing with the 'Tea Party' movement's concern for the fiscal future of our kids' economy, yet recognizes that the same basic dynamic that has produced debts and deficits has also produced income inequality. A wide array of political issues are taken up here from a conservative point of view. But this is a conservatism rooted in the community, not the Wall Street board room or country club lounge. The hearts and minds of a generation which puts belonging before believing can be reached by conservative ideas - but these ideas must be articulated within a commitment to putting community first, and then interpreting our politics in that light.
