The protesting is not just about little injustices

The protest is about the imbalance in control of
our political system that gives more power to the
wealthy and corporations.

Attacks on our civil liberties should identify those
people who are trying to supress the majority of the
population for their own benefit.

Protests will cease when the sources of the complaints
are dealt with.


Bye, bye Scottie!!!

I believe in the personal freedom to choose for one's self

The problem I have is that the laws in each state overlap, meaning, each state has some laws you like and some laws you disagree with. So, what do you do, pick the least offensive state?
(Then bringing in Dragon's original arguement that you can't pick up and move to the state that you want because you can't get a job with equal pay. One way is to go to college in the state you want to live in and start your career there.)

I believe that either fewer laws need to be written that restrict people's freedom to choose their own lifestyle. When people get to say thet "you" can't live the life you want because "my beliefs" don't allow it - I think that's wrong. My belief is that pro-choice is best way to design laws. You get to choose your life and I get to choose mine.

What's the difference between one group saying the rest of our society needs to follow their rules and a dictatorship. We need to allow for differing beliefs under the law.

Each person has one vote

Any business owner can contribute using their personal income.

We have a situation where the congress is bribed by lobbyists in order to sway decisions.

Lobbying should have been outlawed a long time ago.

Republicans have shown that they will try to benefit the wealthy on any issue even though the wealthy represent a small portion of the population. This is not a democracy.

The fact that Republicans, blatantly, vote to note close tax loopholes for the wealthy and totally disreguard the middle
class tells me that the GOP is paid by the wealthy for their vote.

All decisions made by congress should benefit all Americans
and not just the upper few percent who control 50% of the wealth.

We should see a lot of changes in the 2012 elections!

Corporate leaders are employees of the company

Therefore it is misappropriation of corporate funds for the CEO to be able to give corporate money to any political entity without also giving an equal amount on behalf of the rank and file of the company to the party of their choice.

The fact that the supreme court has voted to allow this tells me that they are as bought as the congress.

Get money out of poitics!

Why lobyists weren't seen as providing bribes
in trade for votes is mind-boggling.

This should have been addressed a long time ago.

Socialism to protect the rights of the individual

From the text:
The achievement of socialism requires the solution of some extremely difficult socio-political problems: how is it possible, in view of the far-reaching centralization of political and economic power, to prevent bureaucracy from becoming all-powerful and overweening? How can the rights of the individual be protected and therewith a democratic counterweight to the power of bureaucracy be assured?

Greed and the desire for power are the reasons for the
fear of a more socialistic society.

The wealthy are seeing now that by hoarding the wealth the middle class has no means to purchase products manufactured by the businesses owned by the wealthy.

Stop being so reactionary and listen to the logic....

I just signed on to DU3 and find it has been taken over by Repukes???

Everybody screams about no one having a plan or doing anything about the mess this country is in!

Dylan Ratigan comes from a financial background and is trying to point out the various things that need to be worked on to get this country back on track.

From the responses here I'd say DU has been infiltrated by the nay-sayers who post derogatory comments just to piss people off...

If you want to be constructive let's hear your specific disagreements and what you think he could do to be more effective!

If you look at this from a pro God perspective....

you may say that God decided that there are many orphans in the world and they need a family setting. Since the general heterosexual public has only been able to stay married 50% of the time and all the fighting going on during the break-ups of those marriages, God may have decided to create more family units with what he had left - namely- loving people who are attracted to the same sex partners and can provide a loving family setting while setting an example for the heterosexuals who get married and then divorced because they don't understand the needs of the opposite sex. Hey, but what if???? Huh???

Everything is self-serving without oversight.

Sorry to say that every business becomes corrupt
-without someone else watching over their shoulder.

Gone are the days when the news was balanced and impartial.

Businesses do not make things cheaper when they can charge
based in the value of the product to the user.

People just accept that everything is going to become more expensive. They want what they want and will pay anything to get what they want.

Things get more expensive and we pay more and they charge more and we continue to pay. there is no more "supply and demand" balancing the economy because we will pay whatever they charge.

Where does it end?
When we run out of money to purchase.
