But you, the common man, does not have to.
Many have asked why I became so critical of the “Tea Party” around the election in 2010, and why I’ve continued that criticism since. You can look up the articles; they’re many and varied.
My view has just been validated by a major lobbying organization in DC with the following memo:
According to the memo, if Democrats embrace OWS, “This would mean more than just short-term political discomfort for Wall Street. … It has the potential to have very long-lasting political, policy and financial impacts on the companies in the center of the bullseye.”
The memo also suggests that Democratic victories in 2012 should not be the ABA’s biggest concern. “… (T)he bigger concern,” the memo says, “should be that Republicans The Tea Party will no longer defend Wall Street companies.”
Two of the memo’s authors, partners Sam Geduldig and Jay Cranford, previously worked for House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. Geduldig joined CLGC before Boehner became speaker; Cranford joined CLGC this year after serving as the speaker’s assistant for policy.A third partner, Steve Clark, is reportedly is reportedly “tight” with Boehner, according to a story by Roll Call that CLGC features on its website.
Got it folks? “Your” (The Tea Party’s) political party has been defending the acts that led into the mess we are in today and continue to do so. The fear is that they might stop doing so.
The political folks who utterly refuse to address this issue – including the so-called “Tea Party” (Joe Walsh anyone? Or how about Steve Southerland?) are simply pointing out that you are considered peasants and under the boot of an imperious King who grants those in his favor the right to screw you with impunity.
If you continue to support and vote for these jackals on either side of the aisle — if you continue to provide consent of the governed to the government under those terms — then you’re consenting to being screwed.
It’s that simple folks
You want to know why “OWS” is right? It’s found right here in this sort of so-called “justice” that the SEC is trying to mete out. And don’t start this crap about it only being “Democrats” that do this sort of thing: The Republican Party controls The House which means it also controls appropriation of funds and could literally close any department or agency that refused to bring actual prosecutions and demand actual jail sentences.
Along with this chart:
Note that under “three strikes” laws any person who had three dots on that line above would be locked up for life. Therefore, any firm with three dots or more under the very same rule of law must not be allowed to continue to exist.
How can this continual, repeated and intentional violation of the law happen? There’s only one way: The institutions involved have to be protected by the government. But the government’s job in this instance is to prosecute such actions, not protect those who engage in them.
It is the very protection of these sorts of acts that in fact led to the American Revolution!
Go read that linked Ticker again and understand this folks: The Wall Streeters and lobbyists know that if the common man Tea Partier and Occupy Wall Streeter come together and execute non-violent decisive action — such as a national general strike until the rule of law is enforced — their game is over.
And what is their “game”? That’s simple: They’re robbing you. Serially, intentionally, even violently using the force of government to obtain your property under fraudulent pretense.
“They” know the risk if you put away the divisive rhetoric and foolish name-calling and instead come together and, as the actual 99%, withdraw your consent to being screwed.
There is only question remaining: Are you up to the challenge?
