The grassroots movement is evolving beyond health care. It is an overall opposition against socialism and reversing that trend by demanding a return to the Constitution.

Grassroot movement is motivated by great concern that the America they knew is slipping away and the politicians (GOP and Dems) are not doing anything about it as bankers loot the nation and leave the taxpayers the bill. Americans can feel something stinks and the politicians have a major role in causing the stink. GOP and Dem reps are both catching hell, but the Dems are getting the major brunt of it because they are the ones in charge. As far as I can see, American is divided into three camps, the very rich corporate types who don’t give a damn about the declining US except lobby Congress to pass bailouts, the ones who are already poor and fearing cuts in their entitlements and see the Dems as the only way to pass laws to tax the producers to keep their entitlements flowing, and finally the American middle class who still have their wealth and are in the fear of losing it to economic events and the organized poor. They do not have full faith in the GOP and are still looking for a poltical movement that will meet their needs. This is similar to 1930’s Germany where the poor supported the Communists/Socialists, and the middle class who fear losing their wealth eventually support the Nazis, while the aristocracy/industrialist supported the government till the last minute and made a pact with the Nazis.
