you can sit in your parks or "shut down the ports" til the cops show up, do all that til hell freezes over, but it should be OBVIOUS to anyone following politics even just the last few months (debt ceiling, jobs bill, super committee, payroll tax cut..) which side REPRESENTS the 1 percent, and which the 99 percent.

newt g's tax plan drastically reduces the corporate tax rate, so corporations pay almost no taxes. all his other tax proposals are designed to only benefit the rich too. read his plan. you support all that?

From the Man who would be King, and the only Speaker of the House ever to be sanctioned for ethics violations, Gingrich quotes:

"The problem isn’t too little money in political campaigns, but not enough."

"The idea that a congressman would be tainted by accepting money from private industry or private sources is essentially a socialist argument."

"Politics and war are remarkably similar situations."

For President, I will most likely vote for Rocky Anderson of the Justice Party.

do you honestly believe rocky anderson has a chance in hell of winning? or that your vote for a "protest candidate" will "make a statement" that will change anyone in the major parties' philosophies in the next election? when has that EVER happened?

I'll never tell ; ) LMAO

There is a vote going on right now that matters:

Should some (about $8,000) of the money already raised (about $15.5K) be used for the required down-payment for the venue in Philadelphia where OWS can hold it's National General Assembly. YES or NO?

A vote for Gingrich is a death warrant for our country

[-] 1 points by avery724 (60) 2 years ago

And to vote for obama is to vote for fascism.

[-] 0 points by MikeLobotomy (29) 2 years ago

Well I agree with you there!

[-] 0 points by avery724 (60) 2 years ago

So then, are you going to vote ?

[-] -2 points by MikeLobotomy (29) 2 years ago

Ron P aul all the way I know I know now I'm going to get blasted but haters gunna hate.

[-] 1 points by nkp (33) 2 years ago

Ron P aul 2012! can't believe they censored his name. That's against OWS ideas isn't it. It turns into Ron Lawl

[-] 1 points by nucleus (3291) 2 years ago

You'd need a lobotomy to vote for Ron Lawl. Or Newt Gingrich. Or any GOP candidate. Or Obama, for that matter.

Hopefully there will be another choice.

[-] 0 points by shifty2 (117) 2 years ago

Yes Trump said he could be the other choice, Is that who you refer to, Talk about needing a lobotomy. http://www.wealthdaily.com/articles/the-ron-paul-interview-you-cant-afford-to-miss/3274

[-] 1 points by nucleus (3291) 2 years ago

Trump? LOL

The sad truth is there are no good candidates. Period.

[-] 0 points by MikeLobotomy (29) 2 years ago

So you gunna sit at home with a thumb in a warm spot?

[-] 1 points by avery724 (60) 2 years ago

Ron Lawl's foreign policy is suicidal for the USA.

[-] 0 points by MikeLobotomy (29) 2 years ago

So is the one were using now. ( why do you think they hate us?)The war on "Terror" sucking up all our money and killing our men and women for nothing but the industrial military complex! Now with the NDAA your a terrorist too so what now boi?!

[-] 0 points by avery724 (60) 2 years ago

The reason "they" ( muslims ) hate us is because we are not muslim. Muslims hate anyone that isn't muslim. They have no tolerance for anyone , even their own. Ever hear of honor killings? Paul does not see Iran as a threat to the world, It is. Isolationism is naive.

[-] 1 points by MikeLobotomy (29) 2 years ago

Aren't we the biggest threat to a free world at the moment. We're about to march into our own country. I have known Muslims in past and they didn't kill me. That's like saying all Christians shoot abortion clinic workers.

[-] -1 points by avery724 (60) 2 years ago

Do you know what taqiyya is?

[-] 1 points by MikeLobotomy (29) 2 years ago

Thanks to wikipedia I do now love instant information! You know what the spanish inquisition was. This is a silly game you play LOL

[-] 0 points by avery724 (60) 2 years ago

If you think that by leaving the muslims alone they will leave us alone, you're overwhelmingly naive.

[-] 1 points by MikeLobotomy (29) 2 years ago

Seeing as the military send more money to Ron P aul than all of the other candidates in this race I think I will be supporting my troops on this one. Hate leads to more hate, thus preemptive defense is aggressive hostility. You're naive to believe in RINO'S you are a obviously a neo-con shill who loves bail outs and war.So I will no longer have a conversation with you on this subject. Good day to you.

[-] 0 points by avery724 (60) 2 years ago

Congratulations , you're lobotomy was a success !!!!!!!

[-] 0 points by zati321 (169) 2 years ago

no, the reason they hate us is that they want us OUT of their part of teh world, and want to keep their millenia-old traditions which pre-date islam by 1000's of years, instead of becoming like every other country: steamrollered by internet porn, britney spears, and mcdonalds, get it?

Look up your state congressional district. Look up 2012 elections in your area. Google candidate petition in your district. Get signatures and vote for yourself or any Occupier:) Your State does more than you think; run in your state and declare the People's sovereignty over all the institutions we create; business or government. dcosts.com

If I had to vote right this second, I would probably pick Newt Gingrich.

[-] 4 points by XaiverBuchsIV (508) 2 years ago

Of course you'd vote for Gingrich, Rush Limbaugh just endorsed him.

[-] 0 points by avery724 (60) 2 years ago

Limbaugh has not endorsed anyone as of yet.

[-] -3 points by REALamerican (241) 2 years ago

Of course you would assume to know a damn thing about me, you're a liberal cock sucker

[-] 2 points by nucleus (3291) 2 years ago

We know you're a moron.

If your first post didn't prove it beyond any doubt, your second one surely did.

[-] 0 points by REALamerican (241) 2 years ago

You'll have to excuse my outburst. I just get sick of you people assuming you know anything about anyone else. Just because someone is conservative doesn't mean they are as hateful as the extreme ones you see on tv or radio. You know they pick the idiot conservatives on purpose right? News run by a smart, controlled conservative wouldn't interest anyone. Only crazy, negative, hurtful, hateful news makes money.

[-] 1 points by fabianmockian (225) 2 years ago

Like the news on FOX everday?

[-] 1 points by nucleus (3291) 2 years ago

"You" people? Clueless.

For the record, the most conservative people I know are indeed ignorant as well as bigoted and hateful. It all seems to be part of the package. Of course I don't know all conservatives (nor would I want to).

[-] 0 points by REALamerican (241) 2 years ago

the "most" conservative doesn't describe me. I am only fiscally conservative. Socially I am far more independent. You could call me a constitutionalist. I feel we have stepped to far from our roots and need to get back to the basics of the constitution.

[-] 0 points by avery724 (60) 2 years ago

Can you give examples of ignorance , hated and bigotry of the people you know that are conservative?

[-] 3 points by TIOUAISE (2526) 2 years ago

And would you agree to help the children of the poor scrub the toilets in the public schools as your idol Newt-the-TROLL recently suggested?

[-] -2 points by REALamerican (241) 2 years ago

Yes, I think giving poor people a job is the perfect way to get them money. Or do you prefer hand outs?

[-] 2 points by TIOUAISE (2526) 2 years ago

Let me get this straight: You are in favor of replacing school janitors by poor kids and use child labor to scrub the toilets???

[-] -2 points by REALamerican (241) 2 years ago

They will be paid, so yes I think its a great idea. its not child labor if they willingly apply for the job. Every job must be done, including scrubbing toilets,

[-] 1 points by NLake72 (510) 2 years ago

How come the poor kids have to scrub toilets? Can't the middle class kids get this primo gig? Sounds like Newt hasn't ever worked in a public school before... Trust me, the CUSTODIANS are a critical piece of the puzzle, and they do a lot more than what little kids are capable of. Let's not even talk about the insurance costs of letting small children do this kind of work.

[-] 0 points by REALamerican (241) 2 years ago

small children? Your twisting the truth my friend. Obviously these people would be subject to the same labor laws as everyone else. Must be 16, must be safe, must make at least minimum wage. Besides it isnt JUST for the low income kids. It can be for any student that wants to apply for the job. Low income kids stand the most to gain, however. and I agree. JANITORS are very important. That doesn't mean they should be paid 30 dollars an hour though.

[-] 1 points by fabianmockian (225) 2 years ago

What has he said that sounds even close to what America needs to fix our economy? Firing janitors and letting the students clean the school. How many jobs will that create and more importantly, how many will it eliminate only to be replaced with lower paying jobs that kids will have to do before doing their homework. Newt Gingrich was bad for the country in the past and is bad for the country now.

[-] -3 points by avery724 (60) 2 years ago

I would vote for gingrich also.
