Do you even know what Capitalism is?
Capitalism doesn't force you to do anything. Other than make of yourself what you will.
Democracy is MAJORITY RULE and to hell with the rights of the minority. our republic wasn't set up that way,sorry to tell you.
Secondly what happened during the '08 bailouts wasn't anything short of socialism. Taking from one group of people and giving it to another. That's
wealth redistribution. That has already proven to not work well. So why do OWS people keep asking for it in reverse?
Why not sensible banking reforms like Glass-Steagall? Why not flattening and simplifying the tax code so that this class warfare of "pay your fair
share" simply stops?
Why, instead are we hearing cries to end capitalism? And replace it with what? Democracy? Rule by numbers? You know what that gets you? A ruling
class. Something the founders were against. If you can remove the power of government you can have a more fair society. How? Because the power
government assumes for itself is often co-opted and bank-rolled by special interests. It is the reason we have the system we do today. Wall St. is the
worst place to protest. Washington is where OWS should be. And they should be declaring with one voice that they want reform. Instead they are
screaming about Revolution.
I hope they realize that one of the caveats of the Constitution is that insurgency and insurrection is considered a crime against the union.
