I Challenge Everyone to Watch These Interviews of OWS Folks Talking About Free Enterprise, Capitalism, the Fed

To dispel once and for all the MoveOn stealth campaign to portray OWS as socialists and statists to Paulers, in order to keep them from linking arms. These are the interviews the major media NEVER runs. Instead it pans in on the guy with dreadlocks doing yoga.

SPOT INTERVIEWS WITH OCCUPY WALL STREET, NYC PROTESTERS:
http://www.frequency.com/video/occupy-wall-street-interviews...

---------
MORE INFORMATION ON OWS:

- - (What is Occupy Wall Street about?) OWS is about stopping the transfer of the wealth from the middle class and the working class even further into the hands of one wealthiest one percent. This is done through bank bailouts, through war profiteering, and other forms of crony capitalism. They only call it class warfare when we fight back.
(See OWS Fact Sheet)

From "A One Demand? Get the Money Out of Politics":

"One of the little-known and most startling facts of American politics is that, on average, 80% of congressional campaign contributions come from outside the district, and largely from outside the state. Citizens should only be allowed to give money to candidates who would represent them in Congress. Giving money to one who would not should be considered bribery. Citizens who would not be represented by a particular candidate have no business giving money which dilutes the influence of citizens in other districts on their own congressmen..."

pls turn this into a super thread. it already has enough responses. put all updates further under this thread. every other ows goers put your update here as well. no more each of you starting your own thread on overlapped news. no more spamming. thanks. this is the source of ill sentiment behind a lot of people. you do this and it will be step one of achieving a less antagonistic consensus. a step toward actually being a positive spokesperson for ows, instead of just contributing negative impression. one super thread, no more all over the place.

LOL you are now DailyPaul grand arbiter of

what has "enough" responses. Guess what? You're fired. You Neocons are awesome!

Here's a good one for you. Boston police searching vehicles without warrants for winter tents.

The policeman said what was written on the side of the truck was "suspicious." Sign said "Wikileaks - Top Secret - Information Collection Unit." Video: Priceless.

I hope they're serious enough

I hope they're serious enough to hold their nose and become register GOP in time for primary season. Otherwise, they're not currently of much use.

In states with open primaries it would be easy to

persuade people to vote in the Republican primary and pull the lever for Paul. Lots of people did it in liberal Massachusetts in 2000 for John McCain when he was on a crusade for campaign finance reform (he won the Mass. primary.) I personally know Democrats who switched to vote for McCain, because of this one issue, then switched back.

There is no party loyalty among many voters and there shouldn't be. The Founders thought political parties evil and damned near outlawed them, fearing people would begin to put party above country, which is exactly what happened.

you

You don't even live in NYC. You're just a tourist who thinks it's fun to come into MY town and degrade the quality of life for those of us that do live here, so you can feel like you're doing something important.

You're just like a Republican and the way they view overseas war. All romantic and fun because you DON'T LIVE THERE and don't have to deal with the impact.

Why don't you trash your own neighborhood instead of someone else's?

The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt

That's right Jackboot, you would have said all those dirty

colonists stomping in YOUR streets and making them all muddy, pulling down statues and swearing things like "F*CK KING GEORGE!"

Why didn't they just GET JOBS? : )

BTW someone like you appropriating a sig line about "eternal vigilance" is blasphemous.

Hahahahaha

Hahahahahahaha.

Oh man, anyone else notice how OWS is EXACTLY like the US military?

Apparently, anyone that doesn't want their city occupied by disruptive foreigners is "against freedom".

Where have I heard that before?

First our military goes and "occupies" foreign countries in the name of "fighting tyranny."

And now you get your jollies "occupying" a foreign city in the name of "fighting tyranny".

The irony is just too much.

Get out of my city, occupier. We don't need foreigners clogging up our streets, being disrespectful to the natives, and trashing the place in the name of "spreading freedom".

The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt

Hey, foreign occupier

You foreign occupiers aren't accomplishing anything.

You're not fighting the powers that be.

You're only fighting local residents and living out some deluded fantasy of self importance.

Get out of my city, foreign occupier scum.

Or join the army and go occupy Iraq if you really want to "bring freedom" to people that don't want you there.

What part of occupation = blowback don't you understand?

I watched the OWS Livestream

I watched the OWS Livestream last night. It looked and sounded to me like there were quite a few Canadians mixed in with New Yorkers. I also remember the recent huge riots up in Canada... is there a connection?

Actually

Actually there ARE a fair amount number of Canadians here. Odd. I never thought about it before. Yup. Just more foreigners occupying my city.

But, like I said: I live in NYC and OWS is a self righteous, destroying, foreign, occupying force that's not welcome by the natives. Maybe OWS should just join the military, if they love occupying and "saving" unwilling people so much.

I didn't hate OWS before they started screwing things up here, but now I do.

What part of blowback from occupation don't you OWS people understand?

Further, I've discovered

Further, I've discovered additional details about the Anarcho-Socialist magazine AdBuster's connection to OWS.

The most high profile web site Occupy uses for communication and coordination is www.occupywallstreet.org, which is owned and run by AdBusters.

AdBusters provoked an already simmering anti-Wall Street sentiment to push their anti-capitalist, socialist message. The Occupy Wall Street Wikipedia page also makes this information very clear.

Occupy is a socialist movement at heart. You are being used by Canadians who want to bring down America.

When living under a corrupt

When living under a corrupt regime, illegal does not imply wrong. Just saying.

Besides, thank the guys from saving the poor children from the unbridled dehumanizing indoctrination that is contemporary public schools.

blah blah blah

You'll notice that everyone at the daily paul that actually LIVES in NYC HATES OWS. And all you people who just watch it on TV think it's great. Wanna know why? Because they suck, and just degrade the quality of living wherever they go.

I've said it before and I'll say it again:

All you OWS supporters are just like Republicans loving overseas war. It's soooo easy to romanticize and support something when it's not in YOUR neighborhood messing things up. And do you care that people's property and jobs are being messed up by OWS? Nope. You think the "cause" is more important, and besides, those are just people far away that you never have to meet, right? I mean, no one messing up YOUR neighborhood, right?

Hey OWS- you wanna have some insight into the mind of a people like Hannity who don't care about invading, do gooder, "freedom bringing" hordes that talk about "saving the people from tyrants" but who only succeed in lowering the quality of life of the natives? Look in the mirror.

Go home Occupy. You are the invading force and we don't want you here "spreading democracy".

Game. Set. Match.

I dont like public schools either

doesnt mean grown men can act like animals and chase little 8 year olds going to school. I will never thank anyone who terrorizes kids. I challenge you to come to wall street you clown.

this is what im talking about.

coalition building. the most effective way to be unified against the tyranny of the state. OWS +Tea party = results the political establishment cannot hijack a unified movement. Unity does not mean Uniformity, I know Ron Paul understands this fundamental division between the terms, united and uniform, governments want uniformity Not Unity in the populace.

We should all be going to these OWS things and handing out

literature. The people at these things are ripe for the teaching. Don't talk to people at these things, hand them fliers and let them learn. Don't mention Ron Paul, mention the Federal Reserve. If we can kick the Fed's ass it will be much smoother sailing for liberty.

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must. like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.-Thomas Paine

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

bond holders

Capitalism is in the tank because people are powerless against the bond holders and the terrible terms the politicians have agreed to and mismanaged the funds. Afterall, they are contracts and thus legal. The politicians are to blame because they were and are party to contracts.

If this was one hundred years ago, there would already be war in Europe. Only the Greek people thus far have the intestinal fortitude along with the Icelanders to stand up and be counted. Ironic, since Greece has the next highest percentage to GDP on military spending(3.07%)in NATO next to the U.S.(over 4%) and Iceland has the lowest.(0.9%)

donvino

It's not OWS that turns me off...

It's the feeling I keep getting that someone is trying to control me here. "Look at my links or you're just an a**hole."

Frankly it's a little spooky. Reminds me of a cult.

Canadian socialists are

Canadian socialists are behind the exploitation of American discontent in their attempt to undermine capitalism.

The cult of Romney

They SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO want Ron Paul to get OWS all over him.

RON PAUL 2012

Romney will give Obama a second term

Obama will run on pulling troops from Iraq and the jobs bill the Republicans wouldn't pass. No one will pull the lever for old dck-head Romney he's too stupid. They'll hold their nose and pull it for Obama. It's all been planned.

Anyway what do you mean "all over him?" Can't Ron Paulers say anything they want to anyone they want? No one is talking about Ron Paul addressing the protesters. We're talking about getting your lazy azz from behind the computer and doing some soldier leg-work at these things. I'm headed there now see ya, you can save your flame back.

Say hello to kidbquick and jblackpost for me!

Glad to you're taking them up on their challenge to meet them in NYC. I'm sure they'd be happy to see you're for real.

How do you go from Romney angling to use OWS to discredit Ron Paul in the media (my theory) to me saying that nobody here should engage with OWS??? As far as I am concerned everyone has a right to freely associate with whoever they want.

I really think the Romney campaign is paying people to aggressively spam the DP with OWS propaganda. Team Mitt values your contributions on the DP.

When you get back, instead of posting more OWS propaganda here, why not tell us how well you did mixing it up with the protestors? Can't wait.

RON PAUL 2012

This is getting hilarious...

Well I guess the Paul campaign and specifically the Daily Paul are being co-opted the same way the Tea Party was by the Neo-Cons. Aren't there OWS sites?

What I find really funny is that we here from OWS that they are representing the 99%. Along that same percentage comparison. I bet 99% of OWS doesn't follow or believe in what Ron Paul stands for. Why would he or any other supporter work on trying to convince such a small number of people when there are so many more out there that can more easily be woken up.

I understand OWS being pissed about the direction of the country and some of their other griefs, but we're trying to win the primary and the OWS rallies are a distraction.

HA! you can say Ron Paul is being co-opted same way Tea Party

was? You can say that when OWS gives us a couple of million bucks and sends Michael Moore to speak, the way the GOP "sent" Sarah Palin and the Tea Party bent over and took it. Occupy won't let ANY politicians speak at their General Assemblies so they won't look co-opted. IF ONLY THE TEA PARTY HAD DONE THE SAME THING.

Call them punks but these punks are smart and no one owns them the way the GOP now owns the Tea Party.

Ok, so OWS is against ALL

Ok, so OWS is against ALL politicians. I'm guessing because they are POLITICAL.

What is the point of OWS then? Are they a non-political group (isn't protesting a form of political speech?)? Are they just after the non-political folks?

If so, then who are these non-political folks they are after? And why?

sigh

It's funny. While we're all on here talking about OWS, my girlfriend just texted me that ONCE AGAIN she's stuck in traffic on the bus. Why? Because the OWS dopes are clogging up the street- not doing anything meaningful or well thought out- just standing in the street, blocking traffic so that poor and middle class people can't get home.

Nice one.
