Occupy movement has already spread to The Federal Reserve! It started WEEKS ago around the US.

The Occupy Movement has clearly motivated Americans to occupy The Federal Reserve in Chicago and Boston and it's spreading. Please make the effort to research what is really happening BEFORE you encourage division. The Founding Fathers didn't agree on everything before they joined forces. Please stop the nonsense and help educate our fellow Americans concerning The Fed and the monetary system. That is our role and some of you are really good at it. *VIDEO

Here is protest at Boston Federal Reserve.

It started with Ron Paul

What happened after that is either that the socialists came and took over or the media is trying to make people think these are socialists, etc.

The Occupy SF movement has

The Occupy SF movement has been camped out in front of the SF Fed for the past couple of weeks. Looks like Alex Jones is a little late on getting to the Fed. Others have already done it. I saw plenty of people outside the SF Fed yesterday holding signs that said either "End the Fed" or "Audit the Federal Reserve".

The only reason AJ is getting

The only reason AJ is getting involved is to take the protests back from the socialist beat-nicks who are funded by the banks. Is it the right way to go about it? I don't know but Alex was covering the first protests by Paul supporters.

Why do you keep spamming OWS threads with negativity? We have new people joining this movement all the time and there is a lot of info that they haven't gotten to yet. If you have something constructive to say then say it. Name calling and rudeness isn't helping.

There are all sorts of Ron

There are all sorts of Ron Paul supporters, from the meek "let's all join hands" types (you?), to the kind that want to kick the s--t out of the folks who are turning our republic into a dictatorship (me). So I'm sorry if my calling the trolls out for who they are is 'negative.' I have to at least let them know that they aren't near as clever as they think they are.

You just admitted being a provocateur.

A provocateur is one who promotes violence when peaceful resistance is called for.
Of yourself, as compared to someone like me, you said "the kind that want to kick the s--t out of the folks who are turning our republic into a dictatorship (me)."
As Lennon said, "I hope some day you'll join us, then the world can live as one."
Thank you for your confession, now go forth and sin no more.
:)

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

You are quick to judge.

Maybe I am a "Let's all join hands" person. I am working with my local GOP leaders who are all white and elderly. I even work with our local liberal progressives who are organizing a local OWS protest. But I think you are confused on who the enemy is. Stick around, read more and post less and you might learn something.

What does "LT" mean?

??

Armyfree said in another post

Armyfree said in another post that 'LT' meant 'left' or 'left-winger'. I also thought he meant 'libertarian' at first...I have never heard of 'LT' before he used it(seems writing out 'left' is too hard for him for some reason).

OMG!

WTF does LT stand for???

THE MORE I LEARN ABOUT GOVERNMENT
THE MORE I LOVE MY GUNS

Liber Tarian?

Further proof OccupyWallSt

Further proof OccupyWallSt protesters are aware of the "real issues" and it is part of their protest. This comes from the twitter account of OccupyWallSt (twitter has been a MAJOR factor in these occupy events just like protests in other parts of the world).... don't always believe everything mainstream media feeds you.

Protesting the Fed doesn't

Protesting the Fed doesn't automatically mean these people "get it" or are our allies. Many leftists only oppose the Fed because they do not like the fact that it is technically privately owned and believe it operates too independently. Most of these types are perfectly fine with a government-owned, government-run central bank, which isn't any better (and possibly worse) than what we currently have.

So what? This is your chance

So what?

This is your chance to influence people. If I were in America still I would be out there changing people minds towards Ron Paul's views!

what is the problem with people on here, this is a great opportunity! Any encouragement to boycott the movement is clearly misguided.

That's right. It started at the SF FEDERAL RESERVE!

My god what is wrong with some of you here. These kids need you and your knowledge. Help them/us!

Ron Paul on Occupy Wall Street:
“But I think that the majority of them think government is the problem and taxes are too high and they know that the Federal Reserve plays a role in this, which, of course, is something I agree with.”

"They" are "Us", stop trying to create an adversary

that isn't there. Paul supporters need to be at these protest to have conversations with Americans who sense something is wrong and need clarity. Using this bizarre "commie" nonsense as an excuse to do nothing is pathetic.

Ron Paul on Occupy Wall Street:
“But I think that the majority of them think government is the problem and taxes are too high and they know that the Federal Reserve plays a role in this, which, of course, is something I agree with.”

The funny thing is, you do

The funny thing is, you do the exact same thing, except the "they" is the neocons, and the "us" is everyone else apparently.

Quit getting your panties in a twist.

I've been watching and researching this thing for a week now and that is my informed impression. If you don't like it, that's your problem. Deal with it! I didn't say don't go or talk to them did I? I encouraged cooperation on the points we do agree on.

yeah, you researched it all right.

must have missed the part about Americans occupying Feds across the country and the presence of Ron Paul supporters. Divide and conquer will not work. Sorry.

Ron Paul on Occupy Wall Street:
“But I think that the majority of them think government is the problem and taxes are too high and they know that the Federal Reserve plays a role in this, which, of course, is something I agree with.”

Occupy the Fed

is not Occupy Wall Street. Two different movements. Occupy the Fed was started by people who saw that Occupy Wall Street was socialist.

wrong. Occupy started at the SF Fed and

is now next to the NY FED and has spread to Chicago and Boston FED. Yet, you still allow the corporate media to paint this as a "commie" plot to trick Americans. Very sad. Alex Jones is a clown and LATE. This is a FACT.

Ron Paul on Occupy Wall Street:
“But I think that the majority of them think government is the problem and taxes are too high and they know that the Federal Reserve plays a role in this, which, of course, is something I agree with.”

Why are unions endorsing and joining it?

http://www.cnn.com/2011/10/05/politics/occupy-wall-street/

They stand for pretty much everything free marketers are against.

OWS is NOT a free-marketer rally.

This is the international socialist movement. It's being coordinated internationally.

BUZZZZZZZZ WRONG!! I am for

BUZZZZZZZZ WRONG!! I am for free markets and I support the common man's right to form a union . At its most fundamental, a union is nothing more or less than a group of people who have figured out that if they act together to place limits on the supply of their own labor, the businesses that have a demand for that labor will need to pay more. Unions are basically employee-owned businesses that sell labor. Like any good business, they try to both encourage demand and control the supply. This is my opinion. I am a libertarian and a proponent of the free market. The libertarian party is not like the Republican or Democratic party where we all must fit inside some neat little box and think the same. It is the FUNDAMENTALS that bring us together and whta we as libertarians need to focus on and stop tearing each other apart. The constitution , LIBERTY, and free markets... all the other stuff everyone here is arguing and nit-picking about is silly. Quit bickering and work harder to spread the message that the constitution GIVES US

This is what democracy looks like?

That's cool they are protesting at the FED, but I'm surprised to here the same tired line being chanted from the 1999 WTO protest in Seattle. I liked the other vid I saw where they were chanting "F@#$ THE FED"! I got one! how about...

"FORNICATE THE FED! FORNICATE THE FED!"

What really gives me hope about the Occupy Wall st. movement is seeing this admission that their 5th plank of the Communist manifesto sucks!

http://www.libertyzone.com/Communist-Manifesto-Planks.html

"5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.
Americans call it the Federal Reserve which is a privately-owned credit/debt system allowed by the Federal Reserve act of 1913. All local banks are members of the Fed system, and are regulated by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) another privately-owned corporation. The Federal Reserve Banks issue Fiat Paper Money and practice economically destructive fractional reserve banking."

So, when I see throngs of mostly (not all) commies in the streets at the FED I have great hope because obviously our arguments for ending the fed are winning. The video on the front page of the Ron Paul End the FED guy talking was great! I want to see more of this, and less of this direct democracy and end capitalism garbage.

I and many other DP'ers are not going to start chanting in unison like Borg hive mind/Alien Avatar tribal collectivists, but we can cooperate with them on the points we do agree on without either giving up their core principals, and we treat them like we treated the Soviets in WW2 - temporary allies. No compromise, just voluntary cooperation where appropriate.

Please spread this around,

The MSM and the neocons want this protest labeled LT to keep us and other Independents away. Don't let them do what they did to the "Tea Party". Occupy is ALREADY at the Fed in several cities. WE are the occupy movement. Search for the videos.

Ron Paul on Occupy Wall Street:
“But I think that the majority of them think government is the problem and taxes are too high and they know that the Federal Reserve plays a role in this, which, of course, is something I agree with.”

Bump

Three weeks into a protest against corporate abuses and Wall Street power that has led to hundreds of arrests in New York, similar demonstrations are popping up in other cities across the country with the aid of social media and with the same loosely organized structure as the original demonstration.
On Monday, protesters were camped out in Los Angeles near City Hall, assembled in front of the Federal Reserve Bank building in Chicago and marching through downtown Boston to rally against corporate greed, unemployment and the role that financial institutions have played in pushing the country into its continuing economic malaise.

If I'm not mistaken, these are some of the same issues that we have rallied against here at the DP. So I don't understand why some of us here are insisting on being so devisive.

When you protest for giving more government power to the same government that enabled the 1% to screw the other 99%, count me out.

"I don't understand why some of us here are...being so divisive"

I completely agree Katherine! It seems like people around here are either regurgitating MSM opinions about the protesters or just reacting out of emotion rather than thinking critically for themselves.

Our cause isn't dissimilar than theirs and we have a real opportunity to bring people to Ron Paul's camp.

There are criminals walking free on Wall Street but some people around here want to just bash the protesters and call them names. It's mind-boggling!
