If you're not paying attention to Occupy Denver news on Twitter, you're missing some of the strongest and most readily available social commentary on the movement. (You're also, of course, missing a great deal of infighting and Internet trolling.) This week, Occupy Denver asked Twitter followers what they would change about the United States. The answers (below) lend greater understanding to the issues that concern the occupiers.

Since Occupy Wall Street's inception, it has been plagued by allegations that protesters don't actually know what they're protesting. The difficulty here, that of identifying a central message among thousands, is echoed by one Twitter user, @squashstreet, who responded to Occupy Denver's request with the message below:

I would demilitarize America, force corporations to benefit the world rather than benefit themselves (or forcefully remove them from American land), and institute a federal vocational college instead of artificially rising private college tutions with federal loans.

The Occupy Movement itself has no concrete agendas, however, it's individual members do. This is not to be forgotten.

there would be no "American dream" without capitalism.  I am against war, but no military? Are you crazy?   Sure, let's just let Al Qaeda take over the U.S. Occupy needs to have realistic goals, clear goals, and possibly even suggest reasonable solutions, then I would get behind them.
