Hello, I am an American who is a Libertarian (believes everything should be run according to the US Constitution at an extreme) and I often find myself being conservative these days due to the high number of Democrats opposing the US Constitution. I have been to a number of Tea Party Protests. I dislike Obama, Liberals, and other Americans who dislike classic American values. I am not the '1%' but I believe in Capitalism because it is a system that rewards creativity and hard work. From the videos of the Occupy protest shown on the news and Youtube, I am getting mixed feelings about the Protests. On one hand I appreciate the protesters and members of Anonymous defending their 1st Amendment but I am disturbed by the amount of people who value Marxist ideals. There are also many people who believe the Government should increase taxes - but that would make the government more powerful.
So my question is, what is the true purpose of Occupy? I don't want this to turn into a debate - even though I would not mind explaining the irony and flaws behind some of the protester's political views.
