Wall Street Protests Turn Into America Protests - Page 2
So my friends, if you are now in the group who constitute over 20% of the unemployed Americans, pay attention, note what the Republicans think of you! They say—you have no one else but yourselves to blame for your plight. They say, you are anarchists and anti-capitalist, while the fact is, it is them who have turned capitalism upside down by removing the free competition. Only six banks control over 40% of the nation’s wealth. What we now have is crony capitalism, which is indeed fascism, where the deck is so conspicuously arranged that the small people have no chance at all against the giant corporate monoliths. If you don’t think so open a mom-n-pop shop opposite a Wall Mart, and see how you fare.
After three weeks of muddled voices, it appears that a few clear distinct demands are now coming out from the organizers of the movement; they want corporate America to be reined and seek campaign finance reform. This is the moment to take hats off for John McCain, the maverick who lost his soul in his campaign for US President’s office.
Before the five kings of the US Supreme court made a mockery of McCain-Feingold Act, Public Law 107-155, which became effective on 6th November 2002, with the blocking of ban on unlimited corporate spending in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission ruling, the maverick GOP leader had rendered a true service to the nation.
The class war that was started by Ronald Reagan is now coming full circle. This is the moment my friends, this is the last vestige of opportunity that we have to redeem ourselves. The unity and solidarity between all of us is our only weapon in this uneven fight for survival! We must keep this movement non violent to succeed. Neither the Republican Party nor the Democratic Party are our friends. It is imperative that we watch, our movement is not hijacked by any political party.
