How do people reconcile being against Obama the Socialist and Supporting The Wall Street Banksters?

I support the Wall Street Protests and side with those that want an end to the corruption between Wall Street and our Government.

Unlike some of the characterizations put forth about the protesters on Wall Street, I have a good job and am quite satisfied with how much I make as well. I don't want other people's money nor do I want a handout from the government either.

Having said that, what I do want is for our system to be equal in justice and opportunity for all citizens in this country.

If your a well to do financial investment banker and run over a guy on a bike, then the same charges that would be filed against a poor person and the following punishment, should be leveled against the banker as well. But, that is not what we see in America today, where if you have the financial means, you can pay off people to escape the same punishment and get away with a slap on the wrist.

Also, everyone should have the same opportunity to succeed, but when you pay off politicians, or even go so far as to be a politician from some Wall Street Bank, you have used the tax payers money to benefit you and your cronies at everyone else's expense and given yourself opportunity that not everyone else has access to.

What we have today is 10 financial lobbyists per congress member from Wall Street, and more Wall Street Bankers turned politician, then back to Wall Street than ever be for.

Obama the socialist has his admin full of Wall Street Banksters, whom must also be socialist.
Look at the donations from Wall Street to Obama:

Goldman Sachs $1,013,091
JPMorgan Chase & Co $808,799
Citigroup Inc $736,771
Time Warner $624,618
Morgan Stanley $512,232
Latham & Watkins $503,295

That must be a tough web to weave around for those against Obama but Pro Wall Street, and yet anti OWS.

I am for smaller government as well, because with smaller government, these leeches at the top will hold no power at my and everyone else's expense. I would say a government 5% of the size it is today would suffice, and the welfare 1% would have to put on their bootstraps and make it in a free market, rather than holding their hand out to their sugar daddy or having rules tailored to benefit them and their cronies.

There are some here that would not want to join OWS because there are gasp, communist and socialists sympathizers in the movement.

Yea, and when we rally around election time, did you also know there are also communists, socialists, repubs, dems etc in that movement as well?

I side with those in the protests against the corruption we have, and getting money out of politics and from the talking I have done with some of these protesters, I realize there are more of them that have my own views as well and did not come across one that is communist or socialist, despite how the media likes to portray them as the majority.
