RICK SANTELLI: While the vandals are on the street corners, the Tea Party conservatives they’re working state houses, the governorships, the mayor ships, the Senate, the House. See, they understand, they’ve read the Constitution. If you want to make a difference, don’t go break windows, okay? Break some phony arguments that things like austerity are going to put you in the hole. What put you in the hole is borrowing 38 cents of every dollar you spent. That’s what put you in the hole, pure and simple. Everything else is political spin.
What’s sad about this is that someone actually had to explain the difference between people who are expressing an opinion and standing up for their rights (Tea Party) v a group of vandals and thugs (OWS). I’ve been to Tea Party rallies and you will notice the police have nothing to do because the crowd is orderly and respectful. The Parks people have no clean up because Tea Party rallies leave the area cleaner than what is was before they got there. Tea Party works through the system using the ballot box. OWS works outside the system using violence, they make a mess wherever they go, destroy other people’s property, commit crimes, attack police, and have no intention of working within the system to bring about change.
The “leaders” know that giving the masses free money (from other people) will get them elected to VERY lucrative positions. The vast majorities of the people are completely ignorant of the consequences of continuing on this course and think that the money supply to the government is perpetual and free from any downside.
In short, they think that the ending of the Soviet Union was not a structural flaw in their economic system, but that the people in charge were simply not smart enough. Our current geniuses think that they will make better decisions and prevent the system form imploding in on itself. They are arrogant and narcissistic.
The Tea Party is the same people that stand for the same things (Liberals feel free to say to yourself – “Yeah, Racism,” it not correct but we all know you’ve been trained to think it).
OWS is different people every day with very different goals or no goals, they just want some fun. This is why they had to try to come up with something AFTER they started protesting. The TP never doubted what they were about, OWS never knew. They are Astro-Turf, called out by the Unions, the Democratic Party and the Community Organizer-in-Chief.
This is why all they can do is make noise, get high, start fights with cops and break things. They have nothing else.
We are VERY close to the point of no return, if in fact we have not already crossed that line. For 48% of the population, the federal tax system generates income. Even if they have money withheld from their pay every week, when they file a return they get a refund larger than the amount of their withholding.
