And while we're on the subject, can you defend your assertion that "Capitalism doesn`t work" chrn368?

jravity1 - here's some food for thought. There`s no better example of "making your money go to there hands" than the 30% or so of your income that you are robbed of, which goes directly into various government coffers. We are literally indentured servants to the debt that our `democratic` government has accumulated `for` us, and the irony is that 99% of these 99%`ers want to see MORE of this outright plunder going toward the same purpose. Do you think that because top-earner income was on the decline between the 1940`s and 1970`s that EVERYONE ELSE was necessarily getting richer? If you refer to more thorough statistics on the issue, I`m sure you`d see that the opposite (i.e., that standard of living has increased in measurable proportion to this `boon` of corporate greed that was inaugurated by circa-80`s deregulation) was true. This is not a kleptocracy - nor is it a democracy.

You can't take a system of government that was designed to be a `republic` and convert it into simple majority rule without encountering some, if not all of the problems that these misguided protesters are rallying against in the first place!

Nothing will change until people realize that Wall Street and K street own our politicians.
