Jack Balkin says that “Occupy Wall Street is pretty easily characterized as a constitutional movement, seeking to take back the Constitution from ‘the malefactors of great wealth …” and shows how “the Guarantee Clause of Article IV” providing that “the United States shall guarantee to the states a republican form of government” is available to the growing Occupation in his essay Occupy the Constitution at Balkinization.
