    I'm in favor of shrinking the government to 5% of what it currently is. Then the leeches at the top will FAIL.

    The counterattack many put forth, is increasing the size of government is socialism, and shrinking it drastically is anarchy.

    That's because the elite want to keep things exactly as they are to protect the status quo.

    What the OWS moonbats refuse to recognize:

    The only source of the power that corporations have to abuse, comes from the entity that charters them and gives them legal standing: Big Gubmint.

    Lobbyists r us. Everyone wants a lobbyist to promote their agenda but nobody likes a lobbyist who promotes the other guy's agenda. The fools in OWS think Wall Street is the problem when Barney Frank told Americans that Fannie Mae was doing fine while it was on the verge of collapse when he was chairman of the House Banking Committee which has oversight of Fannie Mae. The president's financial advisor, Frank Raines, walked away with 90 Million in taxpayer money while he allegedly cooked the books as Fannie's CEO. Tea Party want to elect politicians who respect the Constitution and OWs wants...What the hell do they want?

    They have nothing in common, absolutely nothing. This search for common ground is futile.

    Proof? OWS wants the support and approval of the adults in the tea party. They find "common ground". The Tea Party adults find nothing in common with the toddlers shitting their diapers in the play pen.

    There are more lobbyists for the financial sector than any other.
    There are 10 financial lobbyists for every congressman, plus, lets not forget the number of former bankster turned politicians we have working in "our" government.

    Also, in regards to the Mortgage Industry, you can throw in Fannie Mae, and I'll throw in Goldman, I mean, Government Sachs along with JP Food Stamp Morgan, and Citigroup as well. All Wall Street firms.


    Let us not also forget, that in 1994, well before the financial crisis hit, Brooksley Born tried getting derivatives regulated.

    13 Banksters told Summers who is boss in our government:

    So, what would happen if 13 common citizens walked into Summers office and demanded he stop something? They would be thrown out by security, that is, unless you are Wall Street Banksters that call the shots.

    The tea party has only one aim, beat Obama, that's it, it's pure partisan politics. All this other stuff is just bullshit to make people think they have a wider agenda.
