On the #OccupyHouston site, I saw the following comment about the planned October 15th demonstration:

I think I agree with this.
The appeal of #Occupy runs across all divides: political, ethnic, social. That appeal is: 1. Getting big donor and corporate money out of our politics so that leaders need many more small donations (and voters’ support) to win office, and 2. Focusing our leaders’ attention on the nation’s real and pressing problems, and not their next election challenge.
This simple notion is the reason I met folks ranging from homeless to socialist to Ron Paul Libertarians at #OccupyHouston. It’s the one thing pretty much everyone agrees on.
KISS! (Keep It Simple, Stupid!)
One message, one goal, one people, one movement.
Other groups will glom onto #Occupy’s now-high profile, but they should not be supported by, or identified with, #Occupy.
