No. I have been reading the OWS own statements. If OWS people got what they wanted, it would stand directly against my own interest's of living in a
free, Constitutional society.
Demand one: Restoration of the living wage. This demand can only be met by ending "Freetrade" by re-imposing trade tariffs on all imported goods
entering the American market to level the playing field for domestic family farming and domestic manufacturing as most nations that are dumping cheap
products onto the American market have radical wage and environmental regulation advantages. Another policy that must be instituted is raise the
minimum wage to twenty dollars an hr.
The first part I can actually agree with, second part... um you know how badly a $20 an hour minimum wage would mess up the economy and job market?
Imagine the inflation. No.
Demand two: Institute a universal single payer healthcare system. To do this all private insurers must be banned from the healthcare market as their
only effect on the health of patients is to take money away from doctors, nurses and hospitals preventing them from doing their jobs and hand that
money to wall st. investors.
Again no. Every "universal plan" I have seen is focused on reducing cost's for the elderly and women by balancing it off the backs of young men(who
are the most economically disadvantaged group in the 21st Century). Combined with the socialist/sociopath mentality of "since it is a government
program we can tell you" and then use that as an excuse to tell Americans how to live. No TY(P.S why not focusing on reducing the cost of health
treatment? Use deflation to make it affordable).
Demand three: Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment.
And where does that money come from? Ohh right by stealing from another person. Every single Soaking the Rich initiative(remember the Income tax was
originally only for the "rich" till FDR came around) has been used to soak the middle class(and those just above the poverty line).
Demand four: Free college education.
Yeah, because people like working for free! All that will happen is, that the wrong people(those 2-5 years from the grave and people who will end up
taking up space because they aren't smart enough for the degree/training program and prevent others who are smart enough from having a chance) will
flood places of learning even more.
Demand five: Begin a fast track process to bring the fossil fuel economy to an end while at the same bringing the alternative energy economy up to
Yeah because candles, riding a bike/walking several miles + freezing to death in the Winter is so freaking awesome! I always wanted to live like a
serf in medieval Europe! Not! The OWS are just a bunch of liberal arts rejects. They want, they want, but have no freaking clue how to accomplish
anything. So they resort to mob thuggery(see the OWS liberate a foreclosed home[I would give props if it was for the family that originally lived in
Demand seven: One trillion dollars in ecological restoration planting forests, reestablishing wetlands and the natural flow of river systems and
decommissioning of all of America's nuclear power plants.
Demand six: One trillion dollars in infrastructure (Water, Sewer, Rail, Roads and Bridges and Electrical Grid) spending now.
Again, Pipe dreamism. We as a Country was going to spend close to a trillion on infrastructure. What happened? Obama gave it all to the Unions,
women's employment and the bankers.
Demand eight: Racial and gender equal rights amendment.
I support this, but I think OWS and I are coming from different angles(as I believe the USA is a female chauvinist nation, compared to Islamic male
chauvinist nations, but I digress).
Demand nine: Open borders migration. anyone can travel anywhere to work and live.
This alone= every OWS should be tried with treason. These people are MORONS! You can't have communism/socialism or anything other than extreme
poverty/feudalism or anarchy with open borders.
These demands will create so many jobs it will be completely impossible to fill them without an open borders policy.
A world of only the extreme rich or extreme poor, is all the OWS would create. Who is the one being a tool now?
