We have just passed Christmas where spending is a virtue. We have seen an autumn of demonstrations about the evils of our economic system. The question is what comes next? Keep occupying the street? Or something else?

If we succeed and buck the party system with new people (Tea Party pulled it off), they will be at odds with those who are supporting the status quo or want to make government even less able to curb economic evils. It should be an interesting year to say the least. Take a look at the following article for one take on this.
