It's a no brainer, 1% can't control 40% of the wealth and earn 24% of the income and have a fair and balanced financial system. We became a world power because of a huge, strong middle-class. The 1% is killing the middle-class. This can not stand.

In Romney's own words.
The story of two men trapped in one body

Bring the free market back, eliminate corporate control.

Ron Paul comes in second in New Hampshire Primary, more and more people are understanding and supporting him. Polls show if the General Election was today Paul 45% to Obama 47% so Ron Paul does have a real chance of beating Obama.

Ron Paul has a voting record which can not be surpassed by any candidate, his position has been the same from day one, he does not flip flop like most all the other candidates do when the polls disagree with their position of the day.

Ron Paul is a fiscal and constitutional Conservative, just what some Democrats are now wanting and most Republicans and Tea Party people want but the establishment says no and more and more people see what the establishment has given us, more of the same thing and we are not falling for it again.

Ron Paul - Watch this presentation to see why so many people are endorsing Ron Paul for President

Ron Paul can beat Obama, probably better than Romney can.
Election 2012: Barack Obama 42%, Ron Paul 41%

I ONLY identify with the occupy in a conservative way. I DO NOT identify with certain 'members' that reject drug testing because their son is a heroin addict. I DO NOT identify with finanical irresponsible people that thought bank loans would end all their ills. I DO NOT identify with people that thought they could go mos ignoring their financial obligations then cry foul.

I do NOT identify with losers that cost ME money because they think the one percent owe THEM. And MAYBE occupy should be more transparent. YOu blame the one percent. Many of the ONE percent BLAME YOU because of YOUR irresponsibility want something for nothing YOU cost SOME OF US one percent very much. We are sandwiched in between the 'want's and wallstreet. YOU WHINERS COST ME dearly because I am a conservative saver/investor.
I DO NOT identify with losers that use occupy to further their dysfunctional agenda. I REPEAT. WHO empowered the one percent? LOL YOU did.

If a carpetbagger rang your bell and promised you something for nothing and you bit. Who's the idiot? YOU? Or the carpetbagger?

Check this out.'Bally girl'(unidentified, with what appears to be her black finger nails), admonishes Gov Scott making 'them' sick, LOL and the long haired dude, American flag on his shoulder behind her, is wolfing down that cigarette like his addiction is on steroids.

But GOV SCOTT is making OCCUPY sick. lol

Bally gal. Appreciate the humor. Think or LOOK before speaking. ALL you just did was make Scott look MUCH more aware than YOU, mouthpiece of unknown origin. How pathetic.

"Nite Nite", bally girl. You took the wind out of your own mouthpiece sails.

you have it partly correct, but 2 things you have wrong imo:

the so-called "occupy" movement isn't made up of good people,
it's made up of lazy ashols who don't want to do any work at all , they just want to be given free money;
and the things they've been doing is nothing helpfu, it's just useless anarchy, vandalism, harassing law-abiding people, etc.

2ndly, it's not just the elite who are killing off the middle class,
it's also those same lazy ahols of occupy and others who simply aren't willing to work; all those popping out babies they can't support, because the govt steals from the middle class and hands it to these lazy creeps, and refuses to force drug testing on any receiving a govt handout.

this so-called "1%" is like every other group on the planet - it has some good people (Warren Buffet being a prime example), and it has some bad people.

the middle class needs to do 2 things:

pay attention to details, don't jump into one bandwagon/camp or another, most of these groups suck people in by speaking partial truths, then twist things and lead you down to hell. that's exactly how hitler and many others acquired their status.

grow a pair and fight the hell back, don't allow anyone to harm you or steal from you, ANYONE. be ready to die for what's right, that's what the hell created this country in the first place.

Saw an elderly gentleman pulling a sign out of the trunk of his car. It read 'End Capitalism'. He stood inside the circle on Main Street showing all that went by.

The irony of it is he took it out of a 600SE Merecedes Benz.

Guess he figures capitalism should end now that he's retired and he already made his money.

LOL "End capitalism". What an idiot.

Got a better one for you. Coming west on 301 I saw a vehicle that said "kony 2012" I absolutely could not believe the ignorance.

Captialism is what BUILT this great nation. Socialism is what is going to completely COMPLETELY destroy it. But the DREGS think they will get ONE MORE THING FOR FREE. And I am SICK TO DEATH of living in a country of losers because they bought into the 'charge card everything free for everyone trash' bs.

And I have three words for one of the local anti Crist, pro obama jealous idiots portrayed here.


She'll know who she is. She is not propelled by motivation for what's best for ALL citizens. She's propelled by jealousy about ONE citizen.
