I know, AND you are the 1% ....


I guess I am wishing for socialism ??...according to you.

Whatever you want to call equality, that's what I am wishing for.

Why is this so hard to understand?

Let's try to make it more fair. I think this is what the fuss is about.


edit:

My way? What way is that?
Acting? You should be glad anyone tries to have a conversation with you at all.

I do believe that you can not say anything relevant.

So instead you resort to insults.

Good one.

You edited your text. How was I supposed to catch that?

You were saying that the 2 party system doesn't work.

Please tell me more about it. I am all ears.

IMO,you need to expand your thinking a little,and not be so closed minded on things.
There is a lot of stuff going on right now that is beyond what is being posted on here.
This whole OWS thing is just the tip of the iceberg.

Well I think you need to expand yours?

Do you really think I would be posting if I just thought is was some little insignificant thing?

Stop telling people to do your research for you, I will add nothing because I am not a paid teacher, and God bless that I am not, If I had a student like you....I would have to quit. People all through this thread have tried to school you, but I say you can lead a horse to water, you can't make the idiot drink though!

Would you go and protest just like all the other union teachers?

I have been unemployed and underemployed since 2005.

I have had nothing better to do than research to understand why.

Think about that.

You seem to think that the only alternative to a 2 party system is a 1 party system.

There are countries where there are half a dozen parties or more so that the people have a choice other than the lesser of two evils.

It also makes it harder for congress to pass or block laws based on having the majority because even with a majority a single party seldom has more than half of the votes.

I am below the poverty line.
I do believe that if I can not perform my job at a satisfactory level I should be fired, or for any other reason.
I respect the right of my employer to terminate my position, even if it is because he or she just doesn't like me.
I believe I have the same opportunity as everyone.
I believe I can make the most out of any situation.
I do not protest against those who are successful.

I still believe in the american dream.
I do not believe the answer to government corruption is more government.
I do believe in my children.

I do not believe that you know what is in the best interest for me or my children.
I do not believe that I know what is in the best interest for you and your children.
I do believe that there is a 1% of wealthy americans who have achieved the American Dream.
I do not believe that that qualifies them as being criminals or oppressive.
I do believe that to have 99% there must be 100% and that is true in every circumstance, there is always going to be a top 1%.
I do believe that capitalism is the driving force behind freedom.
I believe in freedom.

Please leave me alone.

I am the 1%.


You should have titled your post I am naive.

I am pro capitalist - but the top 1% and wall street in particular are criminals that have bribed their way out of prison - really they deserve to be put to death for what they have done. The system is raping you, and you are two dumb to even know it's happening. This is not about pro communism that is not why this rally started - use your head, it was started because people realized wall street screwed them - hence the name.

Banks were and still are selling assets they don't own, they are betting money they don't have - none of them have 1/30 the assets of what they are gambling with. When they lose even a little, they can't cover the loss and they all collapse, governments ability to bail them out is used up. The real collapse is coming and soon. It is beyond criminal - They have destroyed our country, actually the whole industrialized world in the name of their greed, you just don't realize it yet.

The reason housing prices, medical costs, college tuition, and CEO salaries have sky rocketed is because outright criminality, and removal of laws that prevented it.

The standard of living for the middle class has been destroyed - and I assure you it has nothing to do with the middle class not working as hard as they used to, and everything to do with government and the top 1% stealing from them. Until the rule of law is returned we will continue further and further down the path to 3rd world status till we are there.

The media is spinning this in terms of left/right BS that is completely diversionary. They don't want people to focus on the fact the banks raped them - and that the media knew about it and did not report on it.

Sadly you seem to be falling for it hook line and sinker.

OK good point but a system where those in power only choose who they like is tyranny.

It is not equality or freedom.

12 is better than 1, but it's probably just as confusing.
