How has Wall Street been defeated?

Well, Romney lost. The Republicans lost seats in the House and Senate. The election proved that even massive amounts of money can't be relied upon to fool people. In the year Occupy Wall Street made "the 1%" and "the 99%" household words that everyone in America knows and understands, the Republican Party nominated the poster boy for the 1%, and the people responded accordingly. I'm hopeful that in his second term, now that he doesn't need their money (so much) Obama may be emboldened to move on some of the things he can do without Congress. Perhaps, after 2014, if the Republicans lose their majority in the House, it will be possible then to really do something about the abuses of Wall Street. In the meantime, because of her strong stand on these issues Elizabeth Warren beat Scott Brown for the U.S. Senate seat in Massachusetts, so, she's a rising star and that will help the movement too. It's a long term process.

Well done as usual !
Just a thing, if you want to see your work be share and "disseminate" as you say, it could be better to choose a license who allow that...

I wasn't making a comment on whether or not Obama actually supports the bills; I don't know what his position is, and I would bet that most people can only infer from vague comments he has made. I was pointing out the fact that everyone blames Obama for everything. And I mean pretty much EVERYTHING. But everyone forgets that bills have o be passed in the House and Senate to become laws. And even if the Obama administration supported some of the bills in the first place, they most likely were not privy to the loopholes built in to allow censorship and spying and all these things that were protested against so fiercely unless they were explicitly stated in the bills.

People also blame Obama for the economy, but that was something that was long in the making. In reality, Obama came in on an economy that was already going down to very near the $6 trillion debt. The stimulus added to it, but most of the fault can be laid on the previous administrations. Aka Bush.
Off-topic, I know, but I still feel the need to bring up the economy when people are bashing Obama. Most people bash on him because of bills and laws that occurred while he was in office, and then try to add on by blaming the economy on him as well.

No, I was more referring to just anyone who bashes on him. I wasn't assuming anything about you in particular. I just felt like going off on a small political rant at the time.

The ideas for SOPA and PIPA came from Joe Biden. The Obama administration completely supported those bills.

Seeing how gay rights were supported wherever there was a vote on and conservatives shot themselves in the foot with women's rights, the playing field is open for progressivism to make a push.
Hopefully Obama won't hold back so much now that he doesn't worry about another term and we can get progressively progressive.

The Dems PICKED UP 2 seats in the senate. The last time these batch of senators were up for election in 2006 was during the first blue wave under Bush. Let me repeat, Senatewise, the Dems did better than they did in the first Bush Blue Wave. The Repubs. and their philosophy of being blatantly loyal to the 1% and to the extreme right-wing ideology got them in a lot of trouble. Every Dem who won in the Senate, as well as the President, was outspent by the pro-Wall Street Super PACs. It makes me giddy that Wall Street wasted all of that money just to get their asses handed to them. The first true election under the horrible Citizen's United ruling was a huge disaster for the party of Wall Street and the 1%.
