    It makes sense if it's to stop the income of tax to the treasury which is abused and squandered by the government, the problem with Op wall st is that most of the protesters have never had a job, and probably never will, and are protesting and getting people to stop working, and working people is the source of money the government gets to pay them a welfare check, so in effect they are getting people to cutoff their own income without realizing it, lol is this rite?

    Yes it is. I mean, I get the romantic "fuck teh govrnmintz" idea that's clearly present, the problem is that most protestors, instead of actually doing shit, prefer to go out on the street and pick the 'lazy option', protesting.

    I bet the ones who describe themselves as "socialists" don't even know what it means.

    They're just retards brainwashed by the liberal media into thinking that companies and anybody who earns more than them = AUTOMATICALLY EVIL!!!

    But liberalism actually do have some good ideas. Unfortunately the individuals who promote them are just too fucking retarded. Most of them are college students, the rest of them are on welfare checks. I barely see any liberals that actually has a job except a job in a liberal organization.

    But srsly, some of their ideas are such bullshit such as the idea that everybody should earn the same income. This is just a pass for those lazy bastards who happen to make less or too fucking lazy to get a job.

    I'm mainly talking liberalism in economic terms. Conservatives are retarded when It comes to enforcing laws of the bible as actual laws.

    But you know what's even funnier?

    Yes, there are college students and people on welfare checks protesting on the streets, but the majority of their forums are teenagers and 12 year old who actually think communism can definitely work globally.

    Stop confusing terms. Liberalism is something completely different than the liberalism you're talking about. You are referring to a centre leftist American political party, liberalism as an ideology is something totally different.

    As I've said many times before, the majority of American liberals are opposed to communism and other forms of extreme leftism.
    True, but there are a few things read in the bible that really help a man better himself. Though it is a work of fiction, the themes and lessons to be learned are totally real.

    I have to disagree; they do have good intentions, but it's the Federal Reserve that is the problem here. Ever since we switched from the Gold Standard for (basically) Monopoly Money, we were fucked. The problem is that the US currency is a fiat principle, where it has no intrinsic value; we only determine how valuable it is by how much the economy is gorged.

    Lets just say you have an XBAWKS 720, and I want to buy it. Due to manufacturing costs, labor fees, and a bit of money for yourself, it's worth OVER 9000 dollars, in your perspective. I want to give you a bunch of rocks that would be the same price, thus being the currency in TRAWLIN' CITEH! Now since Jesus can shit out rocks like a motherfucker, he's caused the price to increase because the value of the rock has fallen due to the world being flooded with them. So now the XBAWKS 720 is now priced at WELL OVER 9000.

    See what I mean?

    I love these guys. They're riling against the one thing that's keeping America afloat these days.

    God bless government schools, their political indoctrination and their convenient scapegoats for all of society's ills.

    There is a lot of agendas the movement wants, but the single lead demand is the removal of institutionalized bribery that is campaign contributions committed by those who can afford it (the global elite). That money has more power than votes in a democracy is unacceptable and if you agree with that then you should be a part of this movement on that simple point. We don't need to accomplish anything else (we want more reform obviously), but if we can even get that much, it would be a huge victory for all people.

    Then maybe politicians shouldn't be living glamorous lifestyles. Prussian politicians and other bureaucrats got a small salary, but took pride in their work regardless. Maybe our leaders should be more humble and selfless. Or at least be smart enough to get money before they get into politics so they never need to worry about outside forces corrupting on their ability to make decisions.

    Which doesn't count as a job at all as it's probably all missionary charity funded work like digging a hole for niglets in Africa to shit in so their feces doesn't end up in the river that they drink from and shit in, of course they never seem to use it,which is why they have diarrhea.
    I've seen world vision ads on TV since i was a little kid, in 2005 we had Live 8 aid, promoted by that Bono dick, i would have thought by now after a decade and a half there would be less poverty, but since i've learned from NM the point is those "starvin children" and company are not going to do work to help themselves, nah, they realize it's much better to just expend no energy and just lay around till the next food package from gullible YT heads there way.
    Why dig your own shithole when you can just shit in the river give your village stomach flu and have the perfect excuse to get preferential treatment andnappear in a worldvision ad asking for more donations.

    I know, but I am just saying there are historical examples of politicians living within their means and not being corrupted in their patriotic pursuit of working for the government.

    What guided Prussians wasn't patriotism, it was nationalism. Instilled into them from a young age by indoctrination from almost every aspect of their lives. I suppose in that regard they're exactly like Americans. It's not merely a coincidence since American leaders throughout the decades have tried to recreate a militaristic society (like Prussia's) in America. And, for the most part, have succeeded.

    It is very unfortunate that in the founding of American the Founding Fathers did not include in the Constitution a separation between political ideology and state schools. (And I know no where in the Constitution does it directly say "separation of church and state"). But in their time only the rich could afford schooling.

    Nobody would heed it anyway. The constitution is nothing more than words on paper. Everybody regularly uses it to wipe their asses.

    The OWS protesters aren't all what Faux News paints them to be, as explained in the other thread about this same stupid shit. Most are actual working-class citizens, coming from both the left and the right of America. There is almost no promotion of Marxism or Socialism, nor violence. Although "hipsters", "hippies" and the like may be present, it couldn't be less truthful to claim these individuals to make up the majority of such a diverse movement.

    Don't buy the bullshit that unemployment is at 9.1%. People who have 3 jobs to survive are unemployed. 46 million people live in absolute poverty in the United States, these people barely have a living wage, these people are unemployed.

    The truth is, that the real unemployment rate is much higher than officials and economists are willing to admit.
