They have devalued our currency and widened the gap between the 1% and the 99%.

They are the cause of problems Occupy Wall Street is in protest of.

They have empowered the political system which conspires with Wall Street to commit banking fraud.

Socialism is not neccessary, nor even preferred. Simply return to sound money, and prosecute fraud.

The existing American system, if enforced by its people, is capable of that, without "Stomping out capitalism" -- which is impossible.

By "impossible", I mean literally, scientifically, impossible. The human body requires resources to sruvive. Processing of resources requires labor.

Wether an individual capitalizes upon his own labor, the state capitalizes upon it, or a wealthy entrepreneur does, they are all forms of capitalism -- and have quite blurred lines.

Consider this:

Someone comes to me and employs my expertise in working on cars. I charge them two ears of corn for my labour.

They then turn around, and trade the car I fixed -- for two fat pigs.

They have capitalized off my labor by their possession of the means; the car.

How could you, OWS, or ANYone, ever successfully prohibit this transaction, or anything like it?

Do not seek to bring down capitalism. That is futile. Bring down corruption, conspiracy and political deception -- and your goals will have been met.
