actually, you're the 47%

erick erikson has launched we are the 53% as a kind of counter-protest to the occupy wall street (and every other city) movement. as others have pointed out, the we are the 53% tumblr is actually pretty sad, filled with messages of people facing difficult situations who don't seem to get that they are among the low-earners who pay no federal income tax or who otherwise receive assistance from the government.

which is why the "actually, you're the 47%" tumblr is so sadly funny.
