Occupy Wall Street

I have been supporting OWS since the first day. I have been there several times, and I write extensively about it on Facebook, so I have read most of the stuff on it since the very beginning. JFK and Bobby wanted to do away with the Federal Reserve and distribute America's food surpluses to the poor free of charge (a potential big blow to Kraft, General Mills, Kellog's, etc.) After JFK was killed, Johnson took office and was in bed with big business. J.Edgar Hoover and Johnson were the leaders of the element in the Democratic party that sought to eliminate power from the people by destroying and/or corrupting the unions, bribing the three branches of government into submission to the tyranny of the rich, and doing away with the banking and investment laws that kept the financial sector in check. Bobby was the leader of the Democrats who opposed them, and after his death, the Hoover/Johnson plan started to work, and Democrats became virtually indistinguishable from Republicans as almost all politicians on both sides of the aisle were accepting money thrown at them by the oligarchs and doing their bidding. Every president since has contributed to the success of the Hoover/Johnson grand plan, some openly like Reagan and some behind a smokescreen of liberalism within superficial boundaries like Clinton. By the time Obama took office, the plan had been completely realized, and Obama, behind that screen of token liberalism, is continuing the march toward the absolute tyranny of the rich. He knew before taking office that to do otherwise would result in his immediate assassination. The evidence of this is that big business contributed most of the funding for his election in the firsr place. He would not have been nominated without their approval. The only way to overcome this is the continued growth of OWS and all of its subsidiary supporting groups. Obama will not support the people until those who have stolen all the power and money have been subdued through relentless investigations, courtroom exposure of their criminality, indictments, and convictions for violations of Constitutional law. That is a very problematical process, since the corruption runs virtually rampant throughout the political and judicial structure, but it's sure as hell worth a try. I wouldn't think it was possible at all if I did not have memories of MacCarthy and Watergate. Each time, I was sure that those who supported the exposure of the lies in the politics of fear and the dissembling of Constitutional Law would lose their fight, but along came folks like Welch and Sam Ervin to prove me wrong. Hopefully, such people will emerge again and teach us that it is still possible to defend freedom and justice for all and win.
