One commonality the Tea Party has with Wall Street Pre-Occupiers

This is a very good article, explaining the one commonality the Tea Party may have with the Wall Street Pre-Occupiers — that being opposition to corporatism, which is the organization of a society into industrial and professional corporations serving as organs of political representation and exercising control over persons and activities within their jurisdiction, according to Websters.  Monolithic predator corporations, which actually stifle capitalism by prohibiting small businesses from thriving, control the brunt of wealth and by extension influence — those corporate entities being government, unions, media, banks, Hollywood and multinational corporations, among others.

In my opinion, the corporatists are the Occupiers, for it is they who have violated our constitution, destroyed our otherwise mutually prosperous economic system, and relegated a large segment of our population to poverty.  They continue to engage in every dishonest effort to rob Americans of their natural birthright to free enterprise, made possible by taxation, over-regulation and centralization, and exacerbated by disincentives provided by the welfare state.

I believe the following is key to decentralizing, and restoring a significant measure of control to individuals and small businesses, thereby restoring individual liberty:

*********************************************

“After the nation’s founding, corporations were granted charters by the state as they are today. Unlike today, however, corporations were only permitted to exist 20 or 30 years and could only deal in one commodity, could not hold stock in other companies, and their property holdings were limited to what they needed to accomplish their business goals. And perhaps the most important facet of all this is that most states in the early days of the nation had laws on the books that made any political contribution by corporations a criminal offense.” (Emphasis mine)

Our founding fathers would have never approved of any form of collectivism.  They understood that all great concentrations of wealth and power represent a significant threat to the freedoms and liberties of average citizens.

“I hope that we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations, which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country.” ~Thomas Jefferson

Unfortunately, things did not turn out how Jefferson wanted. Instead of us controlling the corporations, they now control us.

“Banks have done more injury to the religion, morality, tranquility, prosperity, and even wealth of the nation than they can have done or ever will do good.” ~John Adams

“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them (around the banks), will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.” ~Thomas Jefferson

One Response to One commonality the Tea Party has with Wall Street Pre-Occupiers

    I just heard this morning on WBEN that the OWS protesters have actually articulated another complaint that is shared by the Tea Party: Union control stifles competition and innovation.
    Unfortunately, in the Western New York area, the unions are very strong due to an unholy alliance with primarily Democrats, who have been in control here for 50+ years — which also explains why we are among the highest taxed and poorest (and dilapidated) areas in the entire nation.

    Note to OWS Protesters: Research how we may overturn job-killing laws like Wicks Law, the Triborough Amendment to the Taylor Law, and PLA’s (Project Labor Agreements).
