Conservative blogger
aka, the Fifty-Three Percent

Erick Erickson is most famous for founding the conservative blog RedState, but more recently founded the “We are the 53%” tumblr in response to the “We are the 99%” tumblr of the Occupy Wall Street protest. The site posts messages from “the 53 percent of income earners who pay taxes” and “refuse to b-tch about it.” Erickson recently posted a picture of himself holding up a sign that said, "I work 3 jobs. I have a house I can’t sell. My family insurance costs are outrageous. But I don’t blame Wall Street. Suck it up you whiners. I am the 53 percent subsidizing you so you can hang out on Wall Street and complain."
