Solid Evidence That Occupy Wall Street Is A Communist Movement Run By Socialists Who Wish To Bring Down The Free Enterprise System

Posted: 17 Oct 2011 02:13 PM PDT Is Occupy Wall Street a communist movement? Is it being run by socialists who wish to bring down the free enterprise system? As you will see in this article, the answer to both questions is yes. Of course many of the people participating in these protests want nothing to do with either socialism or communism. Many of the protesters are simply angry at the big banks or they just want something to be done about the economy. But the truth is that when you take a close look at the "organizers", the literature and the stated goals of this movement, you see socialism and communism everywhere. As our economic system crumbles, an increasing number of Americans are coming out of the woodwork and are proudly declaring that they are socialists or communists. An increasing number of Americans truly believe that the free enterprise system needs to be brought down and that the answer to our problems is to fully embrace socialism and/or communism. Sadly, this puts Occupy Wall Street in direct opposition to what our founding fathers intended. http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/solid-evidence-that-occupy-wall-street-is-a-communist-movement-run-by-socialists-who-wish-to-bring-down-the-free-enterprise-system?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=solid-evidence-that-occupy-wall-street-is-a-communist-movement-run-by-socialists-who-wish-to-bring-down-the-free-enterprise-system

No, but your mom is.

Get over to TheMultitude.org. Make trolls a thing of the past.

Because the movement can't accomplish anything without selectively silencing dissenting voices?

One of the biggest backers to OWS is Soros. Don't think he'd qualify as a communist. BUT, more importantly is that communism, socialism, or any other "ism" is only as good or as bad as the people behind the system. A balance of many of these "isms" might actually prove to be the perfect society--as long as we can act ethically and empathetically.

Attempting to used labels from failed systems of the past is the pastime of those who don't want to understand. This is a new movement for new times. It can chose and pick anything from any system it wants. It is just painfully obvious that the path we've been on since Reagan isn't working.

48 percent of the American population are on some type of government subsidy. I would consider this a start to becoming a socialist economy verses a Free market System where the money was suppose to "trickle down " from the very wealthy by creating good paying jobs to boost the economy .

Bring American jobs back, get people off socialist subsidies and the US economy will grow

Where do these statistics come from? I think they're made up.

I thought OWS was to get rid of Crony Capitalism. What's up with this Socialism stuff? Are the masses of supporters aware of this?

Yes it is true we want to end free market. We want equality for all, not communism or any other lame name you pick as a label. What do you call, evryone living good, no suffuring or need for crime because there is no poor, everyone acting like responsible adults, not selfish children. What ever you call that......is what i want!
