Here is just another taste of what a Romney Presidency would ultimately look like. He has no clue what the 99% are going through, and he tends to see America through altruistic rose colored glasses. It doesn’t matter that millions are out of work and millions more are losing their homes, as long as his dividend checks keep rolling in, all will be fine. Check out footage of the 99% getting roughed up and ejected from Romney’s 2012 CPAC speech.
From the GOP debates to the Stop Online Piracy Act and the Protect IP Act, there are many different things going on in the US. From the Occupy Wall Street protests, to the thousands of websites protesting SOPA and PIPA yesterday, it is evident Americans are looking for change.
The Occupy movement is making its presence felt in Iowa ahead of the Iowa Caucus — the nation’s first nominating contest for the 2012 presidential elections. Demonstrators have targeted the Iowa Democratic Party headquarters and the “Obama for America” office in recent days, protesting measures being considered in Washington dealing with defense spending, a planned oil pipeline and jobless benefits. Next they plan to focus on Republicans who will be crisscrossing the state in the next two weeks seeking voters’ support. “We think that we have a right to — a constitutional right — to state our purpose and to call for, and to address grievances that we have with the government and the corporate control of the government,” says Hugh Espey, the executive director of Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement, a 36-year-old grassroots organization with some 4,000 members. “These sorts of protest are going to continue until we have a system that puts people before profits and communities before corporations.”
MIC CHECK!!! Well good ole Newt finally gets dealt with specifically, thanks to some ingenious Occupy protesters! No 1 %er is safe. We ARE the Boogie-men of they’re nightmares, a growing force, a growing voice, standing up to the excesses and corruption of the elite. THIS is what Democracy looks like! – Occupy Cyberspace-American Autumn
On Thursday, December 7, a few dozen protesters snuck into a fundraiser for GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich. The protesters chanted “We are the 99 percent!” and disrupted the event before being ejected by the Willard hotel’s security.
About 25 protesters entered the event with the purpose of asking Gingrich to meet with the “99 percent outside” rather than the “one percent inside contributing thousands to his campaign.” Demonstrators chanted “We Are The 99 Percent!” before being ejected by security.
