Obviously I don't live in America so it is hard for me to comment but I follow the discussions with interest. A point that has been brought up many time is getting money out of politics and I don't see how anyone can say that that's a bad thing. Anyway this guy agrees.

There are others. There are a bunch of military guys down there. One was a former marine in his dress uniform holding up a portrait photo of Gen. Smedley Butler. He was going around explaining who the man was to interested parties. For my part, I'd like to see some more changes such as reducing the ability to trade in exotic OTC securities (i.e. if it's more complex than a vanilla call/put, it needs to be listed), instate a central clearinghouse for CDSs to reduce counterparty risk, etc.
Really, it boils down to this: It doesn't matter how much money you have- you've got to play by the same rules as the rest of us.

Don't forget that the Occupiers are simultaenously described as useless hippies who need to get a job and dangerous anarchists that seek to overthrow democracy.
