Can libertarians, conservative Republicans and local Occupy Wall Street groups ever work together in a common cause?

Libertarian Bryan McAninch thinks they can. He's asking such disparate freedom-oriented groups as libertarians, area Occupy groups, and Ron Lawl conservatives to put aside their differences and find common ground at the Federal Reserve Protest in Dallas on November 5.

I don't think so.

Just try typing Ron P-aul's actual name

The bastards the actually changed RPs name when I typed it! What a fucked up forum this is. I honestly thought this movement was going somewhere, but that is biased censorship

Well, we (the USA) were in better shape before the Fed got created, but at this point in the game, I don't think it can really be changed. As far as 3 different political groups coming together on common ground, good luck.

I can agree on some of the OWS stuff, but, well, since nobody can really agree on what that is amongst themselves I have no clue what they really want.

I was Republican, went Libertarian when I was younger then switched to currently (well the last decade or so) into the Constitution Party which most of you I'm sure have never heard of, and even at that, I don't agree with ALL their platform. Unless I start my own party of one, I doubt that I'll agree with anybodies platform entirely.

It depends what End the Fed means. Ending the Fed means something very different to Libertarians then it does to most people. End the Fed is a misleading slogan designed to do just that, mislead you.

End the corruption in the Fed, yes. End the privatization of the Fed, yes. End our current monetary system and move to a resource based economy with out a central bank, no.

Do you not feel that the independence of the fed is one important reason to keep it semi private. After all there are already more members appointed by the gov't on the board than there are actual private bankers.

I don't think it should be privatized at all.

If it is completely run by the gov't than anybody with a personal connection, who knows somebody, who knows a congressman, who wants to push a certain social agenda........

well you get my point

Hence the reason we need to get money out of politics and hold our politicians accountable for their actions. =)

I get where you are coming from though. I know some people think ending the fed will fix all the worlds problems, It wont. That's not to say it's not a huge problem ! It's just one that needs to be addressed after we take our government back.

This is the real problem with America. I hope we wake up before it's too late.
