After reading Eric Treider's "Occupy" letter to the editor (Oct. 28), I was compelled to do some research on the subject and found some very interesting facts that are not being published in the media. For example: Who is funding OWS, a supposed grass roots movement? By funding, I mean who is paying for the free food, Medical Care stations, The Occupy News Paper that is shown in every news clip? Google it and you will find the answer. You are judged by the company you keep!
Who Organized it? The primary organizers of Occupy Wall Street are radical left political parties and unions. All of them are collectivists that oppose limited government and instead want to increase government dependency. The entire Occupy Wall Street action is a distraction from the Obama Administration's and Democratic Party's failed economic policies resulting in even higher unemployment rates and more people dependent upon government, as evidenced by the recent record rise in the food stamp program participants. This is exactly why Obama intentionally implemented the first stimulus package and now asks for a second one relabeled the American Jobs Act. Both Obama and Occupy Wall Street are executing the Cloward-Piven strategy to blame the high unemployment on business and not the government in order to over load the system. Government is the problem not the solution. All the far left radical parties are advocating more government in the form of socialism and communism as the solution.
In his final paragraph, Eric talks about propelling us "toward a more pure democracy," to which I must remind him and all the other people in this country who ignore the Constitution and the principles on which the United States of America was founded, that we are a Republic, not a Democracy.
"Neither you nor I, nor would 99 percent of the farmers walk up and ring a man's doorbell, hold out a hand and say, 'Give me what you've earned even though I have not.' We simply wouldn't do it because we would be facing directly the violation of a moral law, 'Thou shalt not steal.' In short, we would be held accountable for our actions." -- James R. Evans, "The Glorious Quest"
