Small business doesn't have the power to lobby the government to write law that help the business.
MBA-run publically traded companies act differently than owner-run businesses.
Finally, a statement of reason.
As someone who is...very involved with this movement, to say the least, and more importantly has been to four Occupy's in the last month, I'd like to set the record straight with one singular fact:
This is not a liberal or socialist movement.
Sure, SOME people down there are socialist, and many are liberal, buuuut...
I, and We, are not anti-Captialist. I am very pro-Capitalist. This is a movement against elite capture of the Republic, whereby the markets are siezed and distorted and turned into Crony Capitalism.
Period. Point blank. The media is and has been lying this entire time. And, its a subtle lie by omission -- they're picking and choosing who they interview, and who they show you on the nightly news.
Why? Because the 1% put bread on their table, and wanted to split this into left-right paradigm quickly, in a vain attempt to hinder it from becoming populist.
They're trying to lasso it and rein it in, slaving it to the system, just like they did with the Tea Party -- except tethering it to the left instead of the right.
That guys and gals, is the eyes-on, direct truth.
So yeah, straight from my little Occupy protestor mouth: Small business is pure, distilled, awesome.
