You know what the problem is?
People being brainfudged into think in boxes, rightwing, leftwing, all that crap.

Personally I don't understand why some Americans treat Ron Paul like he's the village idiot, while he is the only one who actually seems to know what he is talking about most of the time. I do not agree with everything he believes, somethings are just not realistic. But he does seem to be the only one who is willing to adress the problems facing you Americans and the world.

But still people treat him and his followers like they are complete idiots. The funny thing is, from a distance and from close up they, the anti-Paul peeps, seem like the utter tools they claim Ron Paul and his followers are. (Just an opinion, don't crap your shorts in frustration)

Watching Americans and their politics, has always been like getting slammed on the head with a sledge hammer of irrationality and insanity. (Especially since 2001)
But hey people need to do what they think is right, sadly it seems that has to come at a cost to everybody else.

You "think you know what they're protesting". If that doesn't prove my point, I dont know what does.

PLEASE tell me how "I dont know what I'm talking" about. I've talked about the debt based monetary system which guarantees a cycle of endless borrowing and debt tax slavery. Are you going to try and tell me that the formation of the "Federal Reserve" and the IRS concurrently was a coincidence?

You've made a statement based on absolutely nothing...

My question/point is simple. What are they protesting, what do they want???

The most important thing that we have to demand is a reform to our debt based monetary system which turns us into tax slaves. Its not coincidence that the "Federal Reserve" and the IRS were formed in the same year.

Unfortunately, these unemployed bums could care less about tax debt slavery because most of them probably dont work. Who else can spend all day protesting?

They just seem to "want stuff"...

Let's face it, if this movement is successful in any degree, many of your loved ones may witness greater freedoms and justice in the future.


Only if the Communists/Socialists/Marxists don't get what they want.

Unless they are bankers. But, ho hum, they aren't people either.

So why are you here then?

I also love the tag line. Might as well include a quote from Pol Pot, Castro and Hitler.

Sounds like another shady back room deal created by the fantastic Govt.

People are so militantly demotivating surrounding this "Occupy x" thing.

IMHO at this point you've got to be just jealous that you're not the poster-boy for the event(s).

And if anyone had an ounce of allegiance toward their anti-[communist/socialist/marxist] arguments they would march down there and start preaching their personal ideals instead of sitting here wallowing in disapproval about it as if it's accomplishing anything.

It has raised awareness if nothing more but I think people are realising they can do more and so it's not a complete washout.

No. that's sound dubious to me.
Can we agree to stay focused on the issues?

I was struggling to understand your position, but I think it's all clear now.

Thanks for your "contributions" to this "crap" site that "no one" is "taking serious." Now, where is that "ignore" button...

Long gone, yukitup, which is why I could read your post in the first place.

I gave you a star, seems you could use it.

Personally, I enjoy ATS and didn't agree that this site is crap...

To each their own.

There are plenty of left oriented threads, no need to cry.

I scratch my head every time I read one of your posts.

Sooooo....an American citizen that attempts to right a few wrongs (social injustices) and direct attention back to the constitution and it's actual and meaningful content, is either a Marxist, Communist or Socialist?

Or a Nazi...or Stalinist...or *enter random out of context insult"


They don't even know what Marxism, Communism, or Socialism is...else they'd at least apply it in suitable situations instead of randomly throwing around those words

Because then the media started up "It's pro-Obama!" "It's a new radical left!" "It's a George Soros group!" And that is the same time the crap started on this board.

You can have a diverse crowd and if you only show people that are 24 and black, you might present them as being a 20 something black movement. You neglected to show the other colors of the rainbow and ages of aquarius standing out there...

Media paints the picture they want you to see. Last night on fox, they said "Here them chanting 'Take the bridge" and they showed the crowd chanting, but guess what? They were NOT chanting take the bridge..if you listened.

I have seen a good 10 videos of the protesters yelling...."lets take the bridge"! They ALL can't be hoaxes...!

I just want to edit to add: Why can't the government make big corp's bonuses dependable on the employment stats of the country? The stronger the 99%, the stronger the 1%. Seems like a great incentive to keep wall street and big banks on the up-n-up, the straight and narrow. Win win in my opinion.
