      @TomORand Agents of the government are doing the arresting, not capitalists. Capitalists can only be corrupt if the government is corrupt.

      @TomORand The government is most corrupt of all! It is based on #MoralHazard. Simply to function it must violate morality–i.e., steal!

        @LitMargaretNan if conservatives focus on disagreeing with the #WeAreThe99Percent over trivia , #Pelosi wins.

          @TomORand The Communist Manifesto is no trivial matter. #Occupy is a dangerous political machine of Obama and Pelosi, like it or not.

          @LitMargaretNan #OBama is not popular at all ever since it came out that DHS may have coordinated the raids against peaceful protestors.

          @LitMargaretNan I guess my point is– these kids are LISTENING. They don’t HAVE an ideology– they just know Congress is bought.

          @TomORand Well, perhaps you can do a lot of good by helping them understand the principles of liberty and the value of capitalism.

          @LitMargaretNan Liberty is fresh on their minds– their right to assemble in particular. 100% agree they must stop seeming anti-capitalism

          @TomORand Obama’s campaign has 1 BILLION $. Will use that to buy votes among #Occupy , use protests to stop elections, declare martial law.

          @LitMargaretNan Capitalism ended the cold war more than democracy. Capitalism is an INCREDIBLY powerful tool– just a poor golden idol

          @TomORand I hope you are right. But #Occupy is a violent term, in and of itself. There is no getting away from that. #Peaceful matters.

          @TomORand Capitalism is the free market if it is TRULY free. TRULY is the key word. Free means free from government favoritism or disfavor.

          @TomORand A legitimate function of government is prosecuting fraud. In a free market, investors bear their own risks! You flub, you fail!

          @LitMargaretNan #Occupy is a poor name- but it’s leaderless. If corrupt pols were running it, they’d have a focus-grouped name

          @TomORand Sorry to tell you but #Occupy is a “focus-grouped” name and worse. Obama was once a”community organizer,” specializing in actions.

          @LitMargaretNan “investors bear their own risks”. Not the frauds- they intentionally create risk to sell 2 suckers. “free market” is fixed.

          @TomORand Investors have not been bearing their own risks as they should. Government bailouts and insurance are picking up the tab.

          @LitMargaretNan @moronwatch Government is a Moral Hazard? I guess no one stole during the big financial meltdown, huh?

          @StupidTeaParty @moronwatch Government takes our earnings by force and risks them in ways over which we have little or no control.

          @StupidTeaParty @moronwatch The proper role of government is to prosecute fraud, not to abet and encourage it.

    Praise the plan of cutting back the size of government and give tax money back to the people where it belongs.

    However, I disagree on cutting the deficit and paying down the debt. How can you ever win if you pledge to use tax money towards immoral interest payments? The FED has got all the dollar ever printed in their books as “liability”. Let them start paying interest on THAT debt! It will be ridiculous to compete against the other candidates who propose the usual deal of kicking the can down the road, never pay any debt, and increase the deficit just by the effect of compound interest. Cancel the debt, Audit the debt, Write off the debt… but do not pay it. Nixon stopped paying GOLD, it is time to stop paying INTEREST. Each tax dollar cut must return to the tax payers and not be used to pay interest on lavish big government spending facilitated by the FED.
