“Republicans mistakenly believe that the Occupy movement will die when the first frost occurs. They are wrong about that” said one of the many letters that talked about the Occupy Wall Street movement. Many letters complained about the GOP apathy to the movement. This letter continued on:” Whether we won’t to admit it or not we are witnessing a revolution of ninety-nine percent of the people in this country. Republicans should be afraid, be very afraid. Change is coming…”
Arguing the Conservative viewpoint another writer said:…..It seems to me that many of the demonstrators I see on TV are able-bodied persons who are probably unemployed, who are probably receiving unemployment checks from the government, and who certainly do not appear to be seeking employment. Accordingly, I do not think it is unreasonable to cease issuing those unemployment checks to the otherwise able demonstrators. Surely, they might then rethink the validity of their misguided goals, whatever these might be at the time.
Here are some excerpts from a few other letters:
- Protesters are not policy makers. Their common point is that the system has become flawed, indeed, rigged by the industry-government axis that enables the 1% to ensure that government protects their interests above any kind of serious reform
- It is conceivable that a case can be made indicting culpable individuals for negligent or involuntary fraud, and if found guilty, the fines should be commensurate to the obscene reimbursements and awards these people reaped for their exploitation of naive employees and investors.
