The OccupyWallStreet Crowd’s In-No-Way Socialist List of Demands
There seems to be some active denial or even potential disinformation about the #OccupyWallStreet aka #OccupyAllStreet crowd. Many participants are denying that they seek Obama’s re-election, and that they are socialists.
Some major news media outlets claim the “movement” is picking up steam, while leftwing organizations like MoveOn.org are lending it support. A public relations firm in New York City is already working to run interference for the small group, which feigns to imitate the Egypt uprisings (sans the raping of female journalists, presumably).
As a counterpoint, let’s examine one popular proposed list of demands on the OccupyWallStreet website (Attention: This is not parody! I would never stoop to such “low-hanging fruit.”):
Demand one: Restoration of the living wage. […]
Demand two:Institute a universal single payer healthcare system. […]
Demand three: Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment. […]
Demand four: Free college education.
Demand five: Begin a fast track process to bring the fossil fuel economy to an end while at the same bringing the alternative energy economy up to energy demand.
Demand six: One trillion dollars in infrastructure (Water, Sewer, Rail, Roads and Bridges and Electrical Grid) spending now.
Demand seven:One trillion dollars in ecological restoration […]
Demand eight: Racial and gender equal rights amendment. (Umm, don’t we already have those?)
Demand nine: Open borders migration. anyone can travel anywhere to work and live.
Demand ten: Bring American elections up to international standards of a paper ballot precinct counted and recounted in front of an independent and party observers system.
Demand eleven:Immediate across the board debt forgiveness for all. […]
Demand twelve: Outlaw all credit reporting agencies.
Demand thirteen: Allow all workers to sign a ballot at any time during a union organizing campaign or at any time that represents their yeah or nay to having a union represent them in collective bargaining or to form a union. (AKA Card Check)
These demands will create so many jobs it will be completely impossible to fill them without an open borders policy.
