Occupy Wall Street – What About the Government?

'Day 8 Occupy Wall Street September 24 2011 Shankbone 17' photo (c) 2011, David Shankbone - license: since the news surfaced about the Occupy Wall Street protests in New York City, I’ve been trying to put my pulse on what exactly it is they want.  In a recent blog post, I shared a list of demands taken from a member on their website – demands that were so irrational and crazy that they could never hope to be taken seriously.

We seem to hear a new mantra each day, slowly gaining more focus, but the one thing we are not hearing was called out perfectly by Independence Hall Tea Party Association President Teri Adams in a statment issued on Wednesday:

“If Occupy Philadelphia wishes to reform a corrupt corporation let it start with the world’s largest, the United States government, which routinely wastes billions of taxpayers dollars and seeks to interject itself into every aspect of our lives–threatening our very freedoms.”

via Tea Party criticizes Occupy Wall Street actions – The York Daily Record.

I could not have said it better myself.  To those who are sitting in protest, screaming at Wall Street (all while not collecting a pay check themselves), perhaps you should look first to the government.  The current administration is working hard to grow a society that encourages dependence on the government, does not support business growth and will ruin the values that make America what our founding fathers intended it to be.  Now THAT is something to be concerned about.
