The problem is that Restore the Republic doesn't guarantee that things will be better. Plus what does it really mean? What would be cut and what would be kept from the changes made in these 200+ years?

If you deny anyone with a pulse their rights, you do not have a democracy to begin with.


Direct democracy is mob rule. Who said its fair?


And lemme guess... you think markets are a fair/good alternative as the FOUNDATION of society??

What is means is you get government out of the job of sustaining and controling more and more of the people, making them dependent.

It means you organize and update the Constitution of it is needed! One of the FEW things I agree with this protest is they are asking for this! Not one I find should be the highest priority but still....a SMART move and VERY patriotic all the same!

Edit: if OWS was asking for an amendment that would solve the banking and/or wallstreet issues you have NO IDEA how many supporters you would gain! BUT, as long as this protest is a far left movement, you will get no help from the general public. Why do you think they are paying people to protest? To facilitate the illusion the movement is growing...... EVEN with paid protestors the and several weeks to build, the numbers are STILL not what the Tea Party produced. You NEED their numbers..... You wont get it as long as you demands would destroy the Constitution.

The People can add amendments as well as REPEAL them! It means not one is ever *too big to fail* and so you never have to worry about what is happened now....crooked people and shoddy products dont last!

It means you look to the Bill of Rights to judge what is FAIR...not make up things as you go along.

The people could make change by embracing the Constitution! There is ALSO the 10th Amendment! google the 10th Amendment Center..this is a movement not getting any press either!! See what they have to say!!

The People CAN overrule Congress!!! It is RIGHT THERE....

wiki




The Tenth Amendment (Amendment X) to the United States Constitution, which is part of the Bill of Rights, was ratified on December 15, 1791.[1] The Tenth Amendment states the Constitution's principle of federalism by providing that powers not granted to the federal government nor prohibited to the states by the Constitution are reserved, respectively, to the states or the people.


from Nullify NOW!




The Tenth Amendment Center is conducting a nationwide tour to educate people about the process of nullification. Plans are currently being made for nine additional states. First tour stop was Kansas City; in January, 2012, Nullify Now! heads to Philadelphia. TAC uses a quote from founding father Thomas Jefferson to explain nullification, a process with origins in the Tenth Amendment to the US Constitution. That amendment delegates powers to the states and to the people on matters not assigned to the federal government. A state has the right to nullify an unconstitutional federal law. Jefferson said, “Whensoever the general government assumes undelegated powers….a nullification of the act is the rightful remedy.” Liberals in particular have an issue with the principle of nullification, but liberals tend to approach the Constitution and amendments that followed it from an expansive standpoint rather than from the limiting document the Constitution was meant to be.


This country can not be fixed from the top down! It MUST be restored from the bottom UP!

While the Tea Party got a very bad rap in the press and is hated by the Left, still now with OWS the Left is saying they are like the Left version of the Tea Party..well.......WHICH is it..is the Tea Party full of # or not?? If they ARE, then OWS is full of # too! If they AREN'T...why such a HUGE attack from the left??

Answer: They are STANDING on the Constitution! This is the main reason the media attacked them so.

What many of the OWS protestors want is the same thing many Tea Partiers want.....

The Tea Party wants to do it standing on our founding documents, OWS wont seem to address anything about the Constitution.....I have found it's a great way to shut up an attacker...ask them which articles of the Constitution they want to restore....they shut up...every time...

I you support OWS and also realize that old piece of paper is the ONLY thing standing between us and Communism or Fascism...the learn about it!

If you think it's outdated and obsolete...well...better read up on the other two options I mention...because that is where you are going

If you SERIOUSLY see no good in Communist theory, then you're either lying or you're an unreasonable/brainwashed/immoral person.



I have a family history to draw from.

I still have family in Cuba under threat of the communist regime.
So many spoiled American brats wanna tell me what's what when it is they who have the luxury of erroneously pursuing failed ideology at the theoretical level in a free society they wish to tear down.

America may not be perfect. But I seek to restore liberty. I seek to restore constitutional governance. I am not brainwashed enough to stand with a bunch of morons who seek to place my family in the bonds they escaped from so long ago.

Talk about immorality.

Communism will only work in the real world when all men are angels. Never in history has Communism benefited the people it has been *imposed* on.

Most people who find aspects of communism noble were not alive when Communism existed in many more places around the world than it exists today.

I find it interesting though that most people not opposed to it have this *those other guys didn't do it right* outlook. I have yet to hear anyone alive in the days of the USSR and Communist China share your views.

And so I suppose the world must try again for they have forgotten the lessons learned about it decades ago.

sigh



Did you EVEN READ WHAT I SAID??

I'm NOT a Communist, you fool. I am sympathetic to some of the ORIGINAL THEORIES of Communism, but I recognize that it is a UTOPIAN and FAILING system which encourages totalitarianism.

What I'm also saying is that CAPITALISM is not the answer to Communism, just as Communism is not the answer to Capitalism. BOTH have proven terrible, destructive, tyrannical failures in their own special little ways.

THIS MOVEMENT IS NOT COMMUNIST. THE LEFT IS WAY PAST COMMUNISM, but obviously... people like you aren't past the cold war, nor are you educated enough to see the evils of your beloved Capitalism. YOU must leave Capitalism behind as the left-wing has left Communism behind. And until you do that, you all just sound like anachronistic fools.

Really?

We may be suffering from military adventurism. We may have some seriously misguided folks in government. Some of them egomaniacs of the worst kind. But we are NOT a dictatorship.

If you think that I invite you to live in Cuba for a few weeks and see how you feel afterward.

No no... you truly are butt-hurt about the whole thing, you're lost in a delusional fantasy world and I'm here yelling at you to wake the f*** up.

You barely make any sense... but I'm going to assume you meant that I'm censoring you... but I'm not... I'm telling you facts and calling you a liar... that's not what a Fascist does, a Fascist is more like you and your buddies- using lies/propaganda to discredit a resistance movement. All I can do is sit here and inform you otherwise... nobody's taking your freedoms. And seriously... for you to call an Anarchist a "fascist or communist" is beyond ridiculous. C'mon man... how many times do I have to repeat things?? Do you have chronic amnesia??

The tenth Amendment does not give the people the power to overrule congress. It says that whatever a superior level of government doesn't regulate may be regulated by the next. By the time you get to the people there is very little freedom left. It moves the power upwards not down.

I believe the constitution is only a piece of paper. The people must defend it and what it stands for and not the other way around.

Yeah... why don't you do a simple search on that book. Here... I'll do one for you:
en.wikipedia.org...

Here's a quote:
"Critics commented on Zakaria's teleological point-of-view. In a review published in The Progressive, Johann Hari took exception to Zakaria's Thatcherist assertions that there is no alternative to increasingly globalized, free market capitalism."

It is a book that advocates globalization and free-market Capitalism. Hardly some kind of anti-American commie book if that's what you were thinking. Try again.

Did I not REPEATEDLY STATE that Communism is tyrannical??

AM I TALKING TO A BUNCH OF WALLS??

I'm not a Communist, but to say that there aren't good ideas/concepts in the original theories of Communism is to be willfully blinded. I understand your family's history with Communism was not pretty, and I completely acknowledge that and feel for them. However, this red-scare crap... calling everyone/thing a commie... it's completely inaccurate. The vast majority of the left-wing (including radicals) already know that Communism is a tyrannical failure. Socialism in GENERAL is not, however, and includes many leanings, the most popular of which are LIBERTARIAN (as Chomsky calls himself- Libertarian Socialist... which is not an oxymoron).

If you see no tyranny in the effects/demands of Capitalism upon humans and ecosystems then you're very lost and have a LONNNNNNNG way to go in learning about the world.

Just because Communism sucks... doesn't mean Capitalism doesn't suck... all it means is that Oceania is still fighting East-Asia and fighting over their respective brands/cults of tyranny.

One of the protections in our founding documents does indeed keep capitalism from getting out of control like it currently is.

Straying from the articles within the document is what brought all this about.....
