not a good move. he is way off.

Chris Hedges explains how he sees Occupy. Great interview. There is so much potential in this movement. We have sound logic. We have passion. Don't alienate Occupy participants. Get there and talk to them.

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.”

From the MSM coverage...

...and Ron Paul's granted air/speaking time during recent debates...you would think Ron Paul supporter's are the REAL 1%

Difference is; this 1% can impact this Republic for the better with TRUTH and LIBERTY and SOUND MONEY, than the other 1% with their crony capitalism propping up a failed system backed by promises made, and the shuffling around of debt notes in the form of digits on a computer; a mathematically proven impending bankruptcy!!!

great way to drive Americans away from Ron Paul.

This guy is a fool. The NeoCons killed the Tea Party the same way. There are already Ron Paul supporters involved in Occupy and they are doing great work.

Agreed

This will not help.

I was interviewed at the ISU Occupy by Patch.com: http://ames.patch.com/articles/occupy-movement-made-its-way-...

I was afraid that even making those comments while wearing a Ron Paul shirt would be used against us, it wasn't thankfully.

This video however is not productive.

That is harmful and divisive

The 1% does not "go to work."
Do you PAY taxes, or does the tax collector bring my money to you?
NO ONE HERE is in the 1%. Trying to place yourself above of other humans is ignorance wrapped in arrogance. YOU STILL BELIEVE A LIE. I don't know which one, but no one on this planet has the whole truth. Thinking you are better than another person because you figured out a LITTLE more than they have is LAME.

So, people like Blankfein should get more bonuses?

Did Ron Paul say he stands by the 1 per cent? Why would a Ron Paul supporter stand by the 1 per cent?

"I support the Declaration of Independence and I interpret the Constitution."

Paul doesn't see all wealth as "excessive,"

only wealth via the largess or protectionism of government. Like many, Bill Gates has evidently acted like an asshole on occasion, a saint on other occasions, and a cutthroat businessman a good deal of the time. However, Gates' great fortune came largely without special privilege from government so does he deserve to keep it and spend it as he wishes? I strongly suspect Ron Paul would support his right to do so.

I plead ignorance about Blankfein but apply the above to his case for the probable Ron Paul answer.

"I plead ignorance" but will speak for Dr. Paul anyway?

If Dr. Paul really feels that way about Blankfein's money, I won't support him. Do NOT speak when you KNOW you are not educated on the topic. Go learn who Blankfein is and how he got his money. Correction, how he got YOUR money. "Wealth" is not the problem, CORRUPTION is, and if Dr. Paul is defending corrup0t people, that is news to me.
This is a prime example of the intellectual elitism you folks here revel in, and YOU NO LONGER ARE THE INTELLECTUAL ELITE. You are now the sheep, refusing to look into anything you don't already "believe" in.
That makes you (by your own admission) ignorant snobs. Is that what you are trying to project?
I encourage you do do some research on Blankfein, then consider retracting this statement.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

Ah fishy,

it's not intellectual elitism I'm after but intellectual honesty. I'm sorry you took such umbrage at my admitted ignorance despite speaking to a principle.

In no way did I say I thought Ron Paul supported Blankfein. I gave the example of Bill Gates not Blankfein. I layed out the conditions under which I thought Dr. Paul would approve or disapprove, then suggested applying those conditions to Blankfein. You say he is basically crook and I have no reason to doubt you. All I wished to point out was that, from what I know of one individual who's undeniably in the top 1%, simply belonging to the 1% category is not proof of ill-gotten gains.

I have now learned who Blankfein is and am convinced that if you do as I suggest (apply the principles) you will find Ron Paul very unsupportive of Blankfein's personal fortune, so I don't see what beef we have.

The 1% does not EARN THEIR MONEY - they steal ours

This is just so pathetic, I was hoping to be able to send some fresh blood to this site, but I guess I will be avoiding that.

I like the contrast

I think the Rich should not be taxed as well as the poor. Equality is what I think should happen. A good question to ask these guys that want communism to happen is. If the rich make the same wage as the poor, but the rich had a better wage before, then where did the money go from the wage of the rich? It's stolen money! They "REDISTRIBUTE" the wealth! And REDISTRIBUTION IS THEFT!!!

Have you been to an event?

I have only been to the ones in my town, but I have yet to see anyone who wants a handout. People put slogans on posters, it is an oversimplification of their concerns. "END THE FED" is a catchy phrase, but it does not really explain the complexity of the situation, does it?
The people I talk to at occupy want an end to off shore tax havens and want the corporations getting big tax breaks to stop sending jobs overseas. That is too "entitled" for you?

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

I applaud you for going, fishy,

but I'm afraid you'll be swept away in the strong current. You know what Ron Paul says about the fact that 50% don't pay taxes: "Well then, I'd say we're halfway there [to zero taxes]."

Also, should corporations be prevented from using overseas manufacturing or other services? Dr. Paul's solution is to eliminate the taxes and regulations that make them decide to go overseas, and there are a ton of them!

I brought 3 ounces of silver with me

I like to keep a silver dime with me

It explains "real money" in tangible terms with a simple question: What is this worth? Then give them face and melt values....

A socialist tried to sell me a book of Che's words

To educate me on Socialism after he was convinced I was mis-educated on the subject.

I offered him a silver Kennedy half-dollar for it. He was confused, even said, "But that's just 50 cents," even after I explained it's silver content and the value of it.

I always carry silver (and even gold sometimes) with me to educate. I regularly offer to pay my bar tab with it, "Do you take silver yet?" is what I ask.
