    There would be a lot to be affected. Obama is just going on the same corporate train as everyone else has so I wouldn't expect anything there. There could be much gain in terms of actual competition and economic mobility if we moved to a more free market style economy instead of corporate capitalism.

    Certainly that's the primary motivator of large corporations. The regulations hurt smaller businesses... the one's which do not have the man power or payroll to hire people to understand the millions of regulations they need to follow. The corporations have those people, but hate the high taxes and costs of doing business here in the U.S.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Well see that's the problem with OWS. it's a left wing tea party (current form) blaming the other guy disquised as a new movement.

    The regulations absolutely harm small business. But the government isn't looking to protect small business.

    I think they had a valid point and ridiculous execution that allowed the movement to fall into dysfunctional obscurity.

    Now the big question: Why?

    What point? I missed it. It seemed the "point" changed depending on who you talked to. On the same corner of zucotti park!

    Not their buddies. Not part of the proper aristocracy they are looking to evolve. Kill competition, destroy economic mobility, and you can elevate a certain group of people to a higher station while freezing out any competitive force which could challenge their power.
