Pot meet the kettle. This occupy Wall Street crowd has just started and you've already decided want they want, who they are and made a snap judgment. At least regarding the TEA party there's sufficient imformation to make a judgement. In fact the Tea Party started off strongly because people were upset about the Bailouts and other things the Tea Party was about but their approval ratings have been dropping signficantly since it's become obvious they just want less regulation and less taxes.You know there is such hatred and ignorance about the T.E.A. Party.
.For someone your age to attack Reaganomics tells me a lot about you. Never in the history of this country did so many raise themselves up and prosper as they did under Reagan. Why don't you ask yourself why liberals are so anti Reagan? Reagan made people proud of themselves and their efforts thus they didn't need liberalism. No wonder liberals hate Reagan
I'm not anti-Reagan, I'm anti-his economic plan. By what metric are "so many" prospering? Income inequality has grown greatly, median wages have remained stagnant. I have nothing against the President. It's pretty telling when his primary opponent and future President George H.W. Bush called his economic plan "vodoo economics". Do I think his message was needed in the 80's? Probably, I think people at the time felt the same way they do now. Do I think his economic plan solved our problems? No I think Volcker decreasing inflation and the end of high oil prices are what helped the economy.
