Poor Peter

He doesn't even know that he is part of the 99%.

Everything he says is that the money is going to the government bureaucrats and the banksters. They are the 1%; he is part of the 99%.

The problem is, a lot of OWS

The problem is, a lot of OWS people don't see it that way. Many do see it as a top 1% income earners vs. bottom 99% income earners. Sad, but true.

OWS

is a perfect opportunity to share ideas with other people who care about this country.

Very cool - and brave. Bravo to Peter Schiff.

There are a lot of wrong-thinkers down there.

Peter has got

LMAO! Peter has got got a pair of steel ones!

The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it-Andrew Jackson

I have a love/hate relationship with my man Peter Schiff

He's quick as a whip, I don't normally find anything to disagree with him on, but his delivery sometimes comes across as a little arrogant. However, I thought he killed it in these videos! I'm hoping there's a Part 3 to check out.

Oh, and that takes some serious stones. Fairly sure I wouldn't be confident enough to take on a crowd of people who likely are mostly educated enough to have some deep references. Props props props.

serious stones

"Some serious stones" is right. That man has balls of steel, and so does his father. Awesome!

Big Bump

Love the message, love his education of people, love the enthusiasm, but mostly, I love the courage!

Big props to Peter for

Big props to Peter for spreading the word in such a hostile environment even though I know he's had lots of practice on the cable business channels. The looks on some of those poor kids' faces as Peter's pinpoint logic burst their little liberal worldviews was priceless. The headache he gave some of them will probably last for several days! I just wish we could clone him and Tom Woods a thousand times and send them all into the OWS crowd to spread the word.

OMG

Peter Schiff is my HERO! Next to Ron Paul of course ;)

Thanks for the post...

Thanks for the post...

Epic!

Wow, these people are lost!

Wow, these people are lost! Most of them just want to be right instead of listening. Peter makes perfect sense!

Good

Peter did great. He really got people thinking and it was more peaceful than I expected. He needs to come to SF and help us out!

"you're a funny dude, but who gives a fuck about that? I don't care about someone's wit, I care about the courage of their heart and the honesty of their mind."

It is really hard to watch a mob

All the other guy have said is "I will take from you. I will take from you."
This is true color of OWS.

Not actually

You must not have watched very much of this at all because there are quite a few good conversations and most of the people he talks to say they are pro-capitalism. Most are just young and don't really know where to point the finger yet but I thought Peter did a pretty good job of educating.

notice how quick people are to label

OWS "socialist". I saw a group of Americans having an awesome discussion. This is what Occupy is trying to do. Create a space for discussion AND send a clear message to the corrupt, WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH. Peter had a chance to educate those folks because Occupy created that space.

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.”
