    The Tea Party is thinking the Occupy Protestors should have to pay for property damage, extra security, space and other expenses associated with their protests.

    Since the Tea Party paid for all the permits, processed all the paper work necessary and cleaned up behind themselves, shouldn't the OWS have to as well??

    I hear they are collecting quite a bit in cash donations. Seems like they could reimburse the cities for the costs.

    Yes they should.

    But I doubt they will.

    Pay to protest in a democracy?


    The right has NO commitment to the spirit the founders built this country on.

    Of course they should pay. It is a Capitalist society.

    I know, they want others to pay...

    Go figure?

    Most cities require a permit in an effort to help avoid traffic and crowd problems.

    I understand that taking responsibility for yourself is not something liberals embrace.

    Because 'protesting' costs money. The TEA Parties paid. Are the OSW in some way special that they should not be paying? Why should the taxpayer foot the bill for their 'protest'. They have the right to protest... no right to do it for free.
