    That's so stupid it almost makes my brain explode.
    The voters select the politicians who create policies that rob the middle class to pay the rich. I would have thought that Americans would rally in support of the ideals of Occupy Wall Street, but much to my surprise Americans bent over backwards to support the banks that caused the economic downturn.

    No, occupy wall street was totally misguided. We shouldn't be focused on the corporations, but the government that makes laws that support those corporations. Companies have no loyalty to the American people, while our politicians swore an oath to protect and serve and to represent their constituency.

    It should have been occupy capital hill. All the occupy wallstreet whiners did was cry that they wanted higher taxes, IE: give the corrupt government more money. Ridiculous.

    The American public didn't support banks. They simply failed to support a movement with socialist goals. And, as Alpaca said, nothing could be more stupid than giving a greedy, corrupt, over spending government even more money to waste.

    Mind reading is just not your thing.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    But this the left defended. When the 'stimulus' package' went to the cronies the leftists defended it, and actually demanded more stimulus, claiming the economy would improve. When Obama spent millions mre with his cronies on solar companies again the Leftists approved, saying Obama was a visionary businessman. When Obama tries to ass a budget that no one votes for, it's still the intransigence of The Republicans. When the debt grows ever deeper and the economy fails to improve its the fault of George Bush..

    Now they can see the debacle begin, pretend its just a 'temporary glitch' , and still support the government controlling the personal health of millions of American people.

    To say these people are stupid does now quite explain it. They seen deliberately and stubborninly stupid, and the country is being overwhelmed by them.

    That 80% got healthcare insurance through their employers so if they lost their job they lost their insurance. That is the utopia you will miss?

    Now that utopia will exist with Barrack Obama and the firmly established, though clearly incompetent, bureaucracy. Is that what you wanted?

    Most American's would support a peaceful rally or protest. One that had their rally or protest for an afternoon and then went home. I think what a lot of Americans had against OWS was that they took over parks, portions of a town and just camped out. After a few days they became and I am looking for the right phase or word and this may not be what I have in mind. But they became the rowdy, in your face, take my park bunch and keep it, the enemy of sorts to the common man/average American who couldn't identify with them. Their message was lost due to their tactics.

    When you compare them to the tea party back in 2009/2010, they had their rally and went home, cleaning up the mess they caused prior to departing, not so with OWS. OWS came to be look down upon as a bunch of dirty college kids who didn't clean up after themselves. The tea party ralliers were older, dressed neatly and well behaved. Now I am just using the comparisons here, not the political ideology. So more Americans could associate themselves back in 09/10 with the tea party than the OWS bunch.

    It is how one presents his arguments, the appearance of those rallies and protesters. Most Americans will ask themselves, "Do I have something in common with them?" The answer was no to OWS. It didn't matter what they were protesting about, what matter was the perspective and conclusion the American people drew from those protesting if you get what I mean.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
