We have been captives of corrupt economic and political systems for far too long. The concentration of wealth and the purchase of political power stifle the voices of the increasingly disenfranchised 99 percent. Corporate dominance subverts democracy, intentionally sows division, destroys the environment, obstructs the just and equitable pursuit of happiness, and violates the rights and dignity of all life. </div></div>

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">We are assembled because…

It is absurd that the 1 percent has taken 40 percent of the nation’s wealth through exploiting labor, outsourcing jobs, and manipulating the tax code to their benefit through special capital tax rates and loopholes. The system is rigged in their favor, yet they cry foul when anyone even dares to question their relentless class warfare.
Candidates in our electoral system require huge sums of money to be competitive. These contributions from multi-national corporations and wealthy individuals destroy responsive representative governance. A system of backroom deals, kickbacks, bribes, and dirty politics overrides the will of the people. The rotation of decision makers between the public and private sectors cultivates a network of public officials, lobbyists, and executives whose aligned interests do not serve the American people.
The entrenched two-party system overlooks public interests by pursuing narrow political goals. This climate encourages candidates to polarize voters for individual power and personal gain. Citizens’ meaningful input has been compromised by gerrymandering, voter disenfranchisement, and unresponsive politicians. Residents of Washington, D.C., continue to lack autonomy and legislative representation. </div></div>


Q..........I think the above quote is absolutely true.

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>Excellent!

Love this:</span>
]•Government authorities cultivate a culture of fear to invade our privacy, limit assembly, restrict speech, and deny due process. They have failed in their duty to protect our rights. Exacerbated by profiteering interests, the criminal justice system has unfairly targeted underprivileged communities and outspoken groups for prosecution rather than protection.
•Corporatized culture warps our perception of reality. It cheapens and mocks the beauty of human thought and experience while promoting excessive materialism as the path to happiness. The corporate news media furthers the interests of the very wealthy, distorts and disregards the truth, and confines our imagination of what is possible for ourselves and society.
•Leaders are trading our access to basic needs in exchange for handouts to the ultra-wealthy. Our rights to healthcare, education, food, water, and housing are sacrificed to profit-driven market forces. They are attacking unemployment insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security, creating an uncertain future for us all.*[/b]

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>All of it is so true!

Bravo OWS!</span>

Yeah, right, that's why he's been trying to raise taxes on all those who make over a quarter of a million dollars a year ever since he got into office.

Rep-iglicans have blocked every single job bill. Intelligent Americans know that.

You just make it all up as you go along.
Repiglicann governors have lost more jobs than any other states....particularly Walker, who has lost the MOST jobs of any state.

Better find your crying towel, you're going to need it next year when President Obama is re-elected.

</div></div>It is merely a front. He is not trying to do anything but tell the voters he is a tax cutting president. On top of that, bought and paid for refers to the past, NOT what he is doing right now. It has everything to do with where the money came from that put him in office that came primarily from the banks and the top 1%.

You don't speak for the lefties here.

In fact, you don't speak for anyone here.

Just incessantly throwing up more and more of your own irrational, self-aggrandizing BS.

You are as out of touch with reality as LWW.

Its the banks now that are the major players because they have the most money. The OWS say it doesn't matter who is Pres because you cannot become Pres without playing to the system, even how good your intentions were in the beginning.


During the TARP bank bailout, everyone agreed that the banks needed better supervision. As soon as Obama tried to do something about it, the GOP opposed him en masse. Now they want LESS regulation!!!

Remember this?

WASHINGTON -- Two House Republicans have cast votes as members of the 112th Congress, but were not sworn in on Wednesday, a violation of the Constitution on the same day that the GOP had the document read from the podium.

The Republicans, incumbent Pete Sessions of Texas and freshman Mike Fitzpatrick, missed the swearing in <span style='font-size: 20pt'>because they were at a fundraiser in the Capitol Visitors Center.</span> </div></div>
