Journalist Luke Rudkowski was attacked by police Wednesday night while trying to document the Occupy Wall Street arrests in NY. NYPD used pepper spray, batons, and brute force to move protesters away from the entrance to Wall Street after many tried to push through police barricades. Rumors immediately circulated that police provocateurs dressed as protesters were to blame for the incident.
Some of these demands are really stupid and some are great. Go vote. Make sure to vote "no" on the stupid ones too.
Not only do I support this movement but I will also prove to you why these 13 demands are constitutionally viable.
The Constitution was written over 200 years ago and it was written by brilliant men who really had no idea what the future would hold.
So John Jay and James Madison came up with two justifiable clauses in the Constitution for unforeseeable problems that they we might face in the future.
The first was"for the good of the welfare clause"and the other was" the right for Congress to control commerce state to state".

Ron Paul On The Dylan Ratigan Show Talking OWS And The Fed
I HEART RON PAUL !
With a few the GOP candidates pounding their chests over their robust third quarter fundraising skills, now is the time to permanently connect them to big banks and financial institutions.
"We have peaceably assembled here, as is our right, to let these facts be known..." From the First "Official" Statement of the Occupy Wall Street Movement
from Time magazine article...
Occupy Wall Street: A Tea Party for the Left?
I understand that your crowd consists of a very diverse range of upset people which, for the most part, I endorse as its nourishing for the American spirit. That said, I also believe that there are quite a bit of clueless people out there who are touting potentially dangerous ideas. I will address them in order; this list may be amended later.
Wealth Redistribution comes from the ideology that all rich people became rich at the expense of the poor using malevolent devices. This simply is not true and displays envy.

We should be all over this forum.
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.
Hi, new member here! I just wanted to share this video of a passionate, intelligent Ron Paul supporter telling people the real root of the country's problem, he deserves applause and just one of us in the field is great, but for anyone having doubts about Occupy Wall Street's intentions need to look no further than this passionate soldier spreading the good Doctor's words:
Dear Occupiers, Progressives, Libertarians, etc.,
Greetings and Salutations. I've been reading about your exploits this week in the news. Protests are spreading around the nation, and though largely symbolic right now it must striking a nerve :) (though you wouldn't know it by the lack of media coverage).
But that's about par for the course, isn't it? The Status Quo doesn't want to listen; isn't that part of what this is about?
I admire your efforts to get out and be heard. More over, I encourage you stay out there as long as it takes to be heard.
In that regard, I hope the weather is cooperative and kind to you, because lord knows, the police won't be.
And it is for this reason that I wanted to write to you.
The Occupy! website suggests that this movement seeks to imitate the "Arab Spring".
I'm concerned when I read that friend, because, well, if we're going "Arab Spring" on this, that means we're talking revolution here.
If that's truly the notion, you're gonna need some help.
You see, the crucial strategy that made the "Arab Spring" so successful (for the Egyptians anyway) was non-violence.
Occupy! may not know entirely where it's headed yet, but a few things are clear. First, the longer it continues the more likely the top 1% will use violence to end it. Now is the time to ramp up non-violent rhetoric. Take every opportunity to emphasize the non-violent nature of your presence.
I was listening to Alex Jones, and he suggested that it is time for us freedom lovers to start occupations of the Federal Reserve on our own. I happen to agree with him, and I have even taken the initiative in starting a facebook group about organizing a Detroit protest:
An open letter and warning from a former tea party movement adherent to the Occupy Wall Street movementSubmitted by rex84 on Tue, 10/04/2011 - 07:44
I didn't write this letter but it's well worth the read, as well as are the responses below it:
I don't expect you to believe me. I want you to read this, take it with a grain of salt, and do the research yourself. You may not believe me, but I want your movement to succeed. From a former tea partier to you, young new rebels, there's some advice to prevent what happened to our now broken movement from happening to you. I don't agree with everything your movement does, but I sympathize with your cause and agree on our common enemy. You guys are very intelligent and I trust that you will take this in the spirit it is intended.
I wish I could believe this Occupy Wall Street was still about (r)Evolution, but so far, all I am seeing is a painful rehash of how the government turned the pre-Presidential election tea party movement into the joke it is now. We were anarchists and ultra-libertarians, but above all we were peaceful. So, the media tried painting us as racists. But when that didn't work they tried to goad us into violence. When that failed, they killed our movement with money and false kindness from the theocratic arm of the Republican party. That killed our popular support.
