NEW YORK, NY - OCTOBER 11: Protesters with the "Occupy Wall Street" movement chant before walking up 5th Avenue to demonstrate in front of the residence of NewsCorp CEO Rupert Murdoch on October 11, 2011 in New York City. Hundreds of activists marched along 5th avenue and Park Avenue stopping in front of the buildings where prominent heads of major business and financial institutions live. Many of the 'Occupy Wall Street' demonstrations have been living in Zuccotti Park in the Financial District near Wall Street. The activists have been gradually converging on the financial district over the past three weeks to rally against the influence of corporate money in politics among a host of other issues. The protests have begun to attract the attention of major unions and religious groups as the movement continues to grow in influence. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)

    An unscripted reality show, Occupy America is a populist movement in the tradtion of the nineteenth century Cross of Gold. Speculation (George Soros; hedge funds), long or short, oil futures, de-regulation, neo-liberalism, benefits the 1 percent connected class with no social benefit. Banks once organized and allocated capital in order to produce wealth, economic expansion, that benefited the many rather than the few. Globalists know no national loyalty and are detached from their nations.

    Get the $oney out of politics. Campaign contributions are the nexus of corruption in the capitol. Reduce the amount of money involved in re-election, which really is the name of the game, by promulgating free air time during elections. Keep the current system for primaries.

    http://napoleonlive.info/what-i-think/occupy-wall-street-get-the-money-out-of-politics/

    History repeats itself: no leadership, no vision, no perspective, chickens have come home to roost…Selfishness.

    For example, there was an imbalance in trade between the Western and Eastern halves of the Roman Empire, along with high taxation. Consider: the government lost control of its borders — Goths, Franks, Suevi, Alans — and society experienced moral decay.

    NeilSalemMA Why does all this remind me of France in the 1780s and 1790s?

    1) 1780s – The economy of France is in crisis. The civil population is poor and becoming poorer and they are starving.
    2) 1789 – The storming of the Bastille – the revolution begins
    3) 1791 – The King and Queen flee for their safety.
    4) 1792 – The King and Queen are arrested.
    5) 1793 – The guillotine – King Louis XVI and Queen Marie Antoinette are beheaded.
    6) 1793 – 1794 – the Reign of Terror. Over 16,000 people are beheaded.

    Our system of free enterprise is a corrupt oligarchy of the wealthy that drives more and more middle class Americans into poverty, even while the very rich get much richer. As happened over 200 years ago in France, the people will eventually rise up.
