#OccupyRNC or #resistRNC is set to stage a huge demonstration at the Republican National Convention in a little more than 2 days. The economics aside — We’ll get to that in a minute — take a second to look at the “big money” and corporations argument of the occupy movement. The organization of the website they have built for this event is staggering resistrnc.org they’ve set up a map like a battle grid with strategic locations (including Romney ville a play on the depression era Hooverville). The map even includes real time updates so occupy rioters can avoid police, barricades and even fires (which there is talk of them planing to set using molotov cocktails). Now this is no small task. A ton of planing and organization went into this website, not to mention money. It is very clear that some “big money” is behind this plot. Leftist corporations like Greenpeace and Labor Unions are likely to be involved in providing funding and tactical organization for such a massive endeavor.
The whole premiss of the occupy movement is a joke. If the protestors had bothered to learn anything in their high school economics classes we wouldn’t be in this mess. They would realize that republicans Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are far more likely to improve the economy. Occupiers look at images like the below graphic and get all riled up.
The problem with the above graphic is that if you read this article the labor participation rate has dropped to a near 30 year low of 63.7% what that means is that 36.3% of americans are not working and generate zero income. Now please if I’m wrong let me hear about it in the comments, but if according to the map 40% own roughly the size of Bermuda and 36.3% generate nothing towards GDP or really any economic indicator, then doesn’t that sound perfectly and exactly fair? That sounds like the perfect amount for the 3.7% poorest wage earners in America.
The problem is they want you to focus on that 40% but 40% isn’t a fair number. Because only 3.7% live in that spec the other 36.3% are either married to or the child of somebody in the other regions, or squatting in the 1% land. A better number to look at would be the disparity between how much the 40% have compared to how much they use. Because in reality that spec on the map probably uses closer to 40% of the government resources which comes from your pocket. So if occupy wants to talk about what is fair they should go back to their spec and tell us from there. The “wealth gap” as they call it comes from not working not from unfairness, and in any system somebody always has to be at the bottom. The great thing about our system is you don’t have to stay there.
And if you don’t believe it, then do what you always do and listen to this actor and the mainstream media.
