People talk a lot about "Freedom"...
But freedom to do what exactly?
For really poor people, "economic freedom" is meaningless. For them, it's just freedom to starve.
For all you right-wingers, tea-partiers and libertarians out there who whine about constantly about taxes and "punishing job-creators" (yeah right), be thankful that the government is keeping the poor well enough fed that they don't decide to storm your gated communities.
To all of you protesters that consider yourselves "Anarchists", please remember: Big Business LOVES anarchy because it means that there are no safeguards in-place to keep corporations and banks from riding roughshod over everyone else.
This is humorously illustrated as follows:
Government's proper role is to protect the people and to regulate economic interests. Not protect economic interests and regulate the people - which is what's now happening.
If you get rid of government, you get rid of our only safeguard.
We have to take government back from Wall St. and put it in the hands of The People.
