Every time I listen to this man, he makes sense. It amazes me that so many Americans don't like him or what he stands for. Thank God I don't live in the U.S.; but if I did, I would vote for him.

Amen to J's point. Makes me wonder what the American people were thinking about electing their last President. It' a breath of fresh air having one who can not only actually string a coherent sentence together but comments intelligently.

I agree J. He has such a genuine narrative if only he wasn't watching his back with every single statement he made.

The problem isn't wall street as much as it is big government.Who goosed the money supply,mandated banks to lend to people who should have never gotten loans in the first place and who bankstopped those institutions with GSEs and created a risk free environment that OF COURSE wall street etc. will take advantage of! In the free market none of that would have happened to the degree it has because the money supply would be naturally limited to gold and silver production,banks would not lend to people who couldn't pay it back and any speculators would be allowed to fail therefore putting a natural break on speculation.Instead govt. has called for more regulation,more bailouts just perpetuating the status quo.

Latest comment: it doesn't matter who is in charge, America is run by the same back room staff the whole time. When they are not in direct control of the president, they **** it up for everyone else by blocking any sensible vote. When they are in direct control of the President (Mr bush etc), they **** it up for everyone else by pushing through crazy tax cuts. What is funny is that they use thick headed ignorant rednecks to front their campaign of greed (Mr bush, tea party etc). America needs a real revolution, OWS is the kind of catalyst that could start it off. Obama should be more favourable towards them and openly support their direct action.
