No: Ron Paul praised the Occupy Wall Street movement.


The point you are missing is that The Banks/Wall-Street run the government, and not the other way around. They are the head, not the tail. They are what has often been referred to as "the shadow" (or unelected) government, or the Invisible Government.

Here's a quote from Teddy Roosevelt that proves the point here:

"Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.

These International bankers and Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests control the majority of newspapers and the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of public office officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government."

--Theodore Roosevelt, 1919

""The warning of Theodore Roosevelt has much timeliness today, for the real menace of our republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus, seizes in its long and powerful tentacles our executive officers, our legislative bodies, our schools, our courts, our newspapers, and every agency created for the public protection.

To depart from mere generalizations, let me say that at the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller-Standard Oil interest and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as the international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes.

These international bankers and Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests control the majority of newspapers and magazines in this country, control both parties, write political platforms, make cats paws of party leaders, use the leading men of private organizations, and resort to every device to place in nomination for high public office only such candidates as will be amenable to the dictates of corrupt big business."

--John Hylan, Mayor of New York, 1922

Now this isn't "my opinion" here. This is the opinion of insiders who witnessed and saw the agenda of this suffocating private power as it was being formed. Those people were telling us the truth about where the controlling power now resides (the Rich cliques, Oligarchs). They are the controlling power. The same power that prevents change from ever happening. The same power that prevents Ron Paul from ever getting elected.

And Ron Paul knows this as well. Here are excerpts from Occupy Wall Street article linked below:

While campaigning in Iowa on Wednesday, Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul praised the Occupy Wall Street movement, comparing it to the Tea Party movement. "In many ways, I identify with both groups," Paul said.

Although “some people like to paint Occupy left and the Tea Party people right," Paul said, "I think it makes my point. There’s a lot of people unhappy, and they’re not so happy with the two-party system".

"Occupation seems to be more addressing the subject of the very rich....in my talk already I've criticized many people on Wall Street and the people who get rich because they get special benefits, whether they get contracts or whether they benefit from the devaluation of the currencies, or whether they get their bailouts, yes, we should address that. I think the Occupy people are."

-- Ron Paul, 2012 Presidential Candidate
