Supporters say “We are the 99%,” but critics say the group has much less than 99% of the nation’s support. We want to know how you feel about the Occupy Wall Street protest movement. Do you support it, or not, and why?
Do You Support the Occupy Wall Street Protest Movement?
The movement represents the frustration of blue collar, Main Street America, alongside much of white collar, impoverished to middle-class America, with Wall Street and much of corporate America and the advantages and power these elites wields in Washington DC. But some say the Occupy Wall Street movement is just a bunch of bums looking for a reason to party and raise a fuss. However, judging by how quickly and how far the movement has spread, with protests now running across most of metropolitan North America and Europe, it seems there’s solid issue and reasoning supporting it.
Due to my own very personal experiences with the evil side of Wall Street, its lying, cheating and stealing, which I hope to someday write about in an important book about the inner workings of Standard & Poor’s, I sympathize with the movement. I know why nobody has gone to prison over this financial crisis, and I’ll write about that here shortly, on a thread we’ll label “Occupy Wall Street”.
Personally, I was insulted by the Supreme Court decision that overturned the campaign finance limit legislation, an act that gave Wall Street and corporate manipulators an open spigot to fund and influence politicians. I’m also unhappy with job creation by corporate America, and I’ll write about the reason these companies choose to hoard cash and create jobs overseas, before helping to lift our economy at its core through domestic support.
