    I think you've become a little meme addled.

    Repeating the same thing over and over causes some to BELIEVE said thing.

    It doesn't actually make it TRUE.

    Do you support ending monied influence or only when you disagree with where they spend the money?
    Like the people from my home country of Germany learned only too well in the not to distant past, I support the unions as they protect people's rights. I prefer that to domination by corporations who only seek to protect the rights of their profits.

    the socialists have hijacked this movement, much like the corrupted DC politicians hijacked the tea party movement.
    both are now invalid and controlled by outside interests.

    Professor of Anthropology, West Chester University; Author, 'The Power of the Between'

    Facing an economic, social and political future of limited possibility, the presence of the Occupy Wall Street community is compelling us to wake up to our bleak reality and take action to secure the future."


    "David Paul, 10.05.2011
    President, Fiscal Strategies Group

    A decade of borrowing and greed finally culminated in the collapse of Wall Street, and it has taken three years for any visible protests to bubble to the surface.

    Ian Fletcher, 10.05.2011
    Author, 'Free Trade Doesn't Work: What Should Replace It and Why'

    I was on the phone talking trade policy with Gov. Roemer this morning, and so far, he's by far the best Republican candidate on the issue of trade and its Wall Street connection.
