American politics has a wonderful tradition of grassroots political organizations taking hold and influencing major policy. In fact, you could say that the American Revolution was really just a grassroots movement! In the past few years the movement dominating politics has been the Tea Party, in the past few weeks that movement has been Occupy Wall Street. So which is going to be bigger in the long run? Well, if the first 10 days of traffic on Zazzle are any indicator, it looks like Occupy Wall Street t-shirts are much more popular than Tea Party t-shirts were during the first 10 days of the start of that movement.
Of course this is very early data, but what do you think? Does the Occupy Wall Street Movement have the staying power to outlast the Tea Party? Is the Tea Party still considered a grassroots movement? What’s your favorite grassroots organization t-shirt? Share in the comments!
