For those of us nationwide that can't make it to NY we need to start groups to protest infront of every one of the 12 Federal Reserve Banks. FRB and Wall Street share the same revovling door of corruption.

Wall Street is just a symptom within a much bigger problem. The root of the problem is the Federal Reserve. I would encourage everyone to go to you tube and type in...

Protesting in front of the 12 Federal Reserve Banks, is a brilliant idea that will force attention upon the Federal Reserve itself. But there should be a follow up strategy to it. Perhaps try to have Ron Paul give a speech on the Fed history and role in today's situation. Or something similar?

I don't think this deeply fascist bankster corporativism deserve to be called "Capitalistic". It has more in common with the command economy of the Soviet and Nazi dictatorships, than with a free and open market system, I feel. And I think it is difficult and even impossible to have genuine individual freedom without also having a free economy.

This Federal Reserve Act establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President (Wilson) signs this bill the invisible government of the Monetary Power will be legalized. — Hon. Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr., Dec. 23, 1913

We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. We are no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominate men. I have unwittingly betrayed my country. — President Woodrow Wilson, 1916

That makes so much sense. I am not in a locale with a Fed Reserve branch but those of you in cities that are - step up to the plate. Your occupation should be there! Let's get to the root of this monster.

Great idea. The Federal Reserve banks should be nationalized and represent the interests of the people at large. This would be a key point of a political platform in order to gain long term rights for the people.

Better yet, let's get rid of the Federal Reserve Banks!

hg wells predicted this 50 years ago maybe we should listen to some of his solutions

Nevertheless, because of the continually increasing efficiency of productive methods, the relative pressure of this new unemployed class increases. The "mob" of the twentieth century is quite different from the almost animal "mob" of the eighteenth century. It is a restless sea of dissatisfied young people, of young men who can find no outlet for their natural urgencies and ambitions, young people quite ready to "make trouble" as soon as they are shown how. In the technically crude past, the illiterate Have-nots were sweated and overworked. It was easy to find toil to keep them all busy. Such surplus multitudes are wanted no more. Toil is no longer marketable. Machines can toil better and with less resistance. These frustrated multitudes have been made acutely aware of their own frustration. The gap of their always partly artificial disadvantage has been greatly diminished because now they all read. Even for incidental employment it has been necessary to teach them that, and the new reading public thus created has evoked a press and literature of excitement and suggestion. The cinema and the radio dazzle them with spectacles of luxury and unrestricted living. They are not the helpless Hodges and factory fodder of a hundred years ago. They are educated up to what must have been the middle- class level in 1889. They are indeed largely a squeezed-out middle class, restless, impatient and as we shall see extremely dangerous. They have assimilated almost all of the lower strata that were formerly illiterate drudges. And this modernised excess population has no longer any social humility. It has no belief in the infallible wisdom of its rulers. It sees them too clearly; it knows about them, their waste, vices and weaknesses, with an even exaggerated vividness. It sees no reason for its exclusion from the good things of life by such people. It has lost enough of its inferiority to realise that most of that inferiority is arbitrary and artificial.

To anyone in the 12th District, San Francisco:

Wrongs will be righted, when We stand United

West Coast response to Occupy Wall Street Mission Plaza outside the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco Saturday Oct. 1st @ 10AM San Francisco, CA

We, the People, demand-

1) A full audit of the Federal Reserve- a) The Federal Reserve is a private bank that serves private interests. b) The Federal Reserve is the chief culprit behind the economic crisis. c) Since the inception of the Federal Reserve in 1913, the US dollar has lost 96% of it’s purchasing power.

2) To bring the troops home now. End American imperialism- a) Over 900 bases in 135 foreign countries, which is bankrupting America. b) Reclaim America’s interest from the Military Industrial Complex. c) Blowback - Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.

3) Legalize Freedom- a) Repeal the PATRIOT Act. b) Divorce the federal government from the Institution of Marriage. c) Expose the realities of the failed War on Drugs.

Lobby much? Imagine the politician that only accepts anonymous donations.
