‘The Protester’

Dear Editor

Anti-capitalism protests and demonstrations are nothing new.

Thanks to lunatic fringe groups like the occupy movement, there’s been no shortage of outcry against capitalism.

Not surprisingly, Times Magazine person of the year, is the protester, whose recipe for change is chasing utopian pipe dreams to make everybody the same.

The whole show is mildly amusing, but now the president and governments are starting to get into the act, and its not so amusing anymore.

Capitalism is sowing your seeds and being rewarded and socialism is President Obama reaping your rewards and spreading them around.

Like so many who use tactics to spread the wealth around…they end up spreading the poverty around.

Do you think that can’t happen here?…look no further than the decline of the middle class.
