Socialist OCCUPY Liberals are

Socialist OCCUPY Liberals are taking the event away from us..

"Believe half of what you see, and none of what you hear." - Benjamin Franklin

O - C - C - U - P - Y aint no diff from us, really.

You have allowed the neocons like Rand who? that infiltrated the Tea Party to convince you that OCCUPY ______! are really different from RonPaulers.

As a RonPauler I have more in common with OCCUPY than I do with the GOP. Every Ron Pauler ought to have been out there with OCCUPY.

Do you ever read Zero Hedge? Do you know who Dave DeGraw is?
What do those guys stand for?

Last time I checked (6 or so

Last time I checked (6 or so months ago) on OWS' claims, proposals, and so on, my personal conclusion was :

1. approximate diagnostic on the roots of the Evil ; many of them blame capitalism ONLY as opposed to capitalism going in bed with government, WHICH IS FACTUAL since 1913

hence, conveniently for them :

2. eventually drift towards more and more semantic, rhetoric abstract stuff with socialist ideas trying hard to work out a system with more ... regulations and Statist stuff ... more planning full of good intents; except, IMO, that doesn't work that way : you CANNOT engineer a FREE society; it's either FREEDOM (exclusive-)OR (totalitarian) ENGINEERING, I'm afraid; ask people who knew the soviets; replace Global Collectivism of today with Local Collectivism in the USA ? Er.. thanks but no thanks; might as well relocate to North Korea, if that's their thing

3. it seems we already tried hard, from what I understood, to have them re-do their homework and join Ron Paul and understand THE HIGH STAKES of returning to the Constitution for a fair-again America; they obstinately refuse any official commitment as a whole to BACK UP A MAN WHO HAS BEEN STANDING FOR US FOR 40 YEARS (damn it!) and hasn't woke up just in 2008 ... maybe some individuals have joined us, though, but nothing of significance for their movement as a whole

So... Occupy-[whatever] ... okay, but, it's either:

Romney = Obama = Globalists Status Quo

or Ron Paul

or, their own plan as they seem to believe to know better than everybody/everything including the Constitution (with some intent to re-interpret it their way)

I say :

go for Ron Paul.

P L E A S E.

I don't see how...

They're grabbing a few seconds of media spotlight on the one hand, but on the other they are adding more voices to the chorus against the tyranny coming from inside the RNC.

History will view their part in this alongside ours as Valorous.


Well after looking at the groups endorsing protesting the RNC

mentioned at the beginning of the video I would say stay away from them.

November 6th 2012 I voted for Dr.Ron Paul

I would do the same.By ALL

I would do the same.

By ALL MEANS, faithful Ron Paul supporters should RESIST ANY provocation.

Smiles! Respect! Proper language! But also firmness and passion for the principles! Unambiguously!


That's what EVERYBODY ELSE decides to ignore condescendingly.

I'm sure we'll do great in Tampa, though. :)

"To study and not think is a waste. To think and not study is dangerous." -- Confucius

AFSCME is perhaps the dodgiest group on the list for me

but I bet we have more common ground with them than we do with Mitt the Twit Romney....

seems to me that the police always preparing for . . .

unpeaceful protests is like the cure that is worse than the disease--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Delegates -- be sure you don't get trapped in a

random police sweep and kept away from the Convention. Keep yourselves safe so you can do a great job for Liberty and a rise in Dr. Paul's positive influence, and that long shot chance at the nomination.

All of our best thoughts, prayers, best wishes go with you. Be strong and safe.

Don't really like the idea of

Don't really like the idea of Occupiers protesting, but what can you do.

Whether with us or not

They will blame anything bad that happens on Ron Paul supporters even if we have nothing to do with Immigration protests.

My opinion.

So lets just stay together as a group because this protest may have 5000 as they said in the video while there could be over 100,000 Paul supporters. Who knows?

Seen Ron Paul supporters from Canada coming down and from all over the world this could be or will be huge!

Stay Together As A Group

I agree the Ron Paul supporter group must stay together and keep separate from protest groups that are not directly involved in the Ron Paul Revolution and/or support Ron Paul For President 2012!
