These are the facts Tax on capitol gains Obama - has proposed raising capitol gains tax and opposes any attempt to roll back the 20 percent rate due to begin in 2013 Gingrich - Called for elimination of the capital gains tax Ron Paul - said he repeal it Romney would like to decrease it for those earning under 200,000 a year And the Republicans are calling for tax cuts for the wealthy And to abolish Obama care. Obama might not be perfect BUT look at the alternative - put action in to VOTES thats the way to accomplish things - Get him on our side .

Obama also loves Monsanto and Halliburton/KBR

Obama is a war mongering, wall street loving fraud.

He betrayed my vote from 2008. He is a republican in disguise. If he meant anything he said during his state of the union when he was saying "Congress, draft me that bill" he would have went around trying to gain support for the Need Act, HR 2990, instead of his lobbyist approved jobs bill.

HR 2990 restores constitutional authority over the monetary system, lowers taxes for the working class, and gives congress the ability to actually create jobs by allowing them funding to strengthen our infrastructure, as well as supply funds for actual Universal healthcare. But Obama didn't go around trying to get this bill passed because he is a fraud who loves his lobbyists. HR 2990 was drafted by the honorable Congressman Dennis Kucinich, a workers rights advocate who actually works for middle America. The same guy known for saying

"Is this the US congress or the board of director's meeting for Goldman Sachs?"

Obama is a war mongering fraud insistent on borrowing money from China while the Federal Reserve continues to create trillions of dollars out of thin air for their own private interests. At one point in time it was 7.7 trillion dollars. Could you imagine if we had that money to fix our economy instead of letting the Federal Reserve do what they please?

And I know the republicans suck. But that changes nothing about Obama being a fraud.

Vote third party. Don't buy into the system that THEY created for us. Don't buy into the lesser of two evils bullshit.

I will NEVER vote for that lying, fucked up clown. I have no love for the republican candidates and will not vote for any of them. I refuse to support the staus quo.

The President is one man, a powerful man, but one man. What the OWS needs to do is implement this on a grassroots level.

We need change at every level for this to work. Most importantly congressmen and senators who are easier for the rich to 'influence' and even put into office.

With enough of them on the payroll, one is easily able to stymie initiatives that truly serve the public good.

You are on the wrong track - Don't look at how much and who is going to be taxed, look at how much of a change will be made with the tax code to "even the playing field for all" instead for a few.

That's where the real issue is - politicians can be voted in and voted out but the tax code remains the same - vote to change it. Start thinking in that direction.

That's where the problem is - get someone in office who is going to do that. obama isn't that's for sure - pick other options instead.

You may not like the personality of the individual you want to put into office but if he says he wants to chang the tax code to help everyone then that's the person to vote for.

He can always be voted out later if he doesn't own up to his promises. you can be sure that will send a "big message" to our representatives.

I would also recommend that people start paying attention to candidates that have a long voting record. If "we the people" put someone in office that does not have an actual record of how they voted on things in the past, then all we have to go on, for the future, is what they "promise to do".

And as many Americans know, we sure do get a lot of "promises" from politicians. Shouldn't we take a close look at their record?

I know who I'm voting for.

Obama who else - but I think he already is on this side

[-] 1 points by Mooks (1985) 2 years ago

Why would you want him on the side of Occupy. Only 43% of Americans approve of him. Occupy is about the 99%.

But on the other hand, if Occupy is really a left wing fringe organization, then yes, you should try to have Obama on your side.

By "this side", are you referring to the Occupy Wall Street group?

"Get him on our side."

Get who on which side?
