'Occupy America'

“……government of the people, by the people…..”

Occupy Wall Street

(NEW YORK CITY) - It seems fair to say that millions of Americans are wondering exactly what the Occupy Wall Street movement seeks to achieve for the future of the United States.

There is a general consensus that Wall Street is the main culprit in the general downfall of the country's financial structure and many are unemployed, poor, struggling to make ends meet, losing homes...

It seems like the right approach could open a door to a brand new America; one that sets everything on a straight course by enforcing accountability, ousting politicians who don't support 'cleaning' efforts by utilizing the vote of this massive body of Americans participating in and supporting Occupy Wall Street.

Well executed plans could straighten out trade agreements that don't favor the American worker and reinvigorate the housing industry.

Perhaps most importantly it is time to pull every single American out of the Middle east war theaters. The doctrine also addresses oil, transportation, education and of course, the tax structure.

As they say, It's a people's movement.

Those who have not visited the actual Website for the movement should go to" where you can catch the latest information.

This is the description of Occupy Wall Street:

Occupy Wall Street is leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders and political persuasions. The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%. We are using the revolutionary Arab Spring tactic to achieve our ends and encourage the use of nonviolence to maximize the safety of all participants.

THIS IS IMPORTANT: Barry D Bernsten does not represent any part of the OCCUPY MOVEMENT in the US. He has not been authorized to draft any "Doctrine" for the movement. The Occupy Movement does not operate in a manner that produces doctrinaire missives either to the media or general public. The Occupy Movement is not seeking "leaders' nor is it seeking "direction" or "organization" from doctrinarians (such as Barry). The "Occupy America Doctrine" alleged to have been drafted "for" New York is pure drivel having no connection to reality, in no way represents any goals of this movement and is potentially quite damaging to this movement if media attempt to collectively employ this garbage as being representative of the movement. There are a lot of con artists and disingenuous and unscrupulous individuals now surfacing in attempts to harm the movement or profit from it in any way possible. One such website was recently exposed (needs greater exposure to protect unaware): The Occupy Movement operates thru genuine democratic General Assemblies and employs volunteer working committees to explore any efforts they wish to enact. They are not seeking to be a third political party or financiers of lawsuits or candidates (suggested in B. Bernsten's phony doctrine). They are not naive kids who are attempting to create pie in the sky legislation or demands. These are highly intelligent people who have established a very thoughtful, daily evolving, mechanism for exploring a better future through addressing the real problems of today. Please do not be taken in by the dangerously doctrinaire productions of lonely nutjobs and purposeful operatives with negative agendas. To Repeat: Barry D Bernsten does not represent any part of the OCCUPY MOVEMENT in the US. He has not been authorized to draft any "Doctrine" for the movement. The Movement does not work this way. Do not be taken in by the emerging cons surrounding this monumental exercise of Freedom.

Lets see, I understand that the most of the demonstrators are being paid by the Obama Administration and the Unions up to $22 an hour including overtime. Well, what about that one? It was planned by the Obama Administration and the Unions to overthrow capitalism and introduce Socialism/Marxism. Welcome to the former Soviet Union. All these scumbags want a free ride, big Government so they can get a check in the mail and be totally dependent on the Government. They are to lazy to work and brainwashed by the Obama Administration. Obama was handed a broken mess alright however, he made it worse. We have no money, the economy is a mess, no Morales and every time we disagree with Obmama we are called racists. It's not because Obama is black (half black) it's because Obama is incapable to be the President. It has nothing to do with the color. Obama is also a warmonger. He just started the fourth war, sending American troops to Africa. Stop making excuses for a President who is a Marxist and the worst President in US History.

I have no doubt that the democratic party will have a repeat performance of 2010 in the 2012 elections. Maybe the editor missed the last elections, or a republican winning Rep. Weiner's NY seat that had been in democrat hands for nearly 90 years. In terms of what Obama inherited, his policies have made it worse. They obviously thought it would be statistically impossibe for the conservatives to take over the House of Reps. Had they not, then the gunrunning and bogus "green" loans by the Whitehouse would not be investigated. Only FOX and conservative radio shows would have been reporting. Now we have the Obama corruption being exposed to the world. It was the voters led by the conservative Tea Party that did this. 2012 will be an even bigger year. Go look at what Reagan inherited from Carter. It was far worse. Unemployment was over 10% and the prime rate was over 20%. The policies he put through totally reversed the economic downturn and created significant growth which is needed to create private sector jobs. He helped create over 20 million jobs. Look what's happening now. 70% of Americans depend on a healthy stock market for their pensions, so the majority of voters are quickly learning that another four years of Obama will ruin them, and not just economically.

TO editor: according to my research, its the democrats that are done. Its the same move taken over 100 years. Screw the country with a democrat, then bring in a republican to "fix" things. You DO know that Clinton and HIllary were involved in Mena yes? You DO know that it was Clinton that spent all the baby boomber social security money to balance the budget and now we hae a problem yes? You DO know that on Clintons watch, he allowed Glass-Steagle to b repealed, which ALLOWED bush to create havoc yes? As mentioned, we dont have a two party system, and anyone who thinks we do needs to get a grip. You know what our "two party" system really is? I will tell you.. Globalists, vs. non-globalists..and that is a fact.

To previous posts: You are kidding me right? You are still fighting over the republicans and democrats? You have not noticed there is no two party system for the last 100 years? That both parties are owned? To Editor: and to the poster: You guys need to truly turn off your television. Try to read a book once in awhile.. The two party system was set up by the bankers, its all documented..Get people fighting amongst themselves, and they wont see the true culprit..What do ya think their think tanks 24/7 have been doing for the last 200 years?? Question: can u answer this without looking it up? How many democrat and republican presidents in the last 100 years? I will answer for you... 11 r's and 11 d's...and when you do your research, none of them changed overall agendas..they are all bought and paid for, and anyone who thinks there is a difference between the R's and D's, needs a wake up call. The elite planned all of this..cause havoc with a republican, then change to a democrat for hope and change..then when the democrat totally screws the country, go bak to a republican..they have been playing this for many decades..The only actual presidents I know that are real, are JFK and Andrew Jackson, and even tho Ron Paul is not president, I put him in that catagory. Alan Greyson and Kuchinich are not so bad either.. When you label yourelf a republican or a democrat, all you are doing is putting yourself into a closed box with no windows or doors..a frigin sheep.

All increases in taxes/fees are ultimately passed on to the consumer. Bertsen should look at the tax plan submitted by Rep. Paul Ryan...did he plagerize some of his plan from Ryan and the Republican congress? Maybe Bertsen should discuss federal spending and available revenus with current spending levels. Then tax everyone making over say $200,000 a year at "100%" and still we would be in a spending deficit scenario. Obama and the democrat congress (when in power 2007-11) created more of a national debt in 2 years than all other presidents and congresses going back to our founding. Sure write all the finance plans you want and put in all those fine details, but until spending is reduced, it means nothing.

Editor: I'm not happy with Obama but he was handed a broken mess of a country thanks to that warmongering windbag  falsely elected prior to him.  Two false flag wars... come on!  Don't try to paint some picture that doesn't and didn't exist, Obama has screwed Palestine and his moves in Mexico are sinister, but the point you are trying to make, some feeble excuse for the Republicans, screw that.  As for plagiarizing, who gives a shit if that is true and why would you cite that?  The Republicans are done, you might as well close the party down today and stop wasting time, you guys screwed the pooch and have no idea how much the 'party's' aspirations are in direct conflict with American values - the first and worst every time, on everything.  No, the Democrats are not great or good or even excusable, but they are NOT as bad as the GOP, the ultimate expression of the sickness of the American heart.
