They're pretty short videos.

Two very interesting videos! One thing, I can't understand is this: I thought the TeaParty folks from the beginning were as much against Wall Street as they were against Washington. Now, it seems, at least Tea Party Express is against the protest against Wall Street. I checked out Alex Jones http://www.infowars.com/ It appears he supports the protest against Wall Street.

One of my Prohibition Party friends, Don Webb had a an email exchange with a pro-capitalist, which I post below, including my remarks:

Don Webb- "Redistribution of Wealth is Socialism.

Wealth kept in the hands of a few is Capitalism.

Opportunity for all to become Wealthy is Populism."

Scott- "Opportunity for all to become Wealthy is Capitalism."

Don Webb- "NOT SO! It don't work that way, Scott. Sure, this is the "textbook" theory we teach our children in school, but in the real world, it doesn't work like this. Most Capitalists are greedy because of their sinful nature, and they - because they control the banks and the politicians - are NOT going to allow a system where common people can enjoy such with them. Real competition would be a threat to them and they "ain't gonna" allow it. I trust you are NOT that naive. I suspect I'm a little older than you, and I've witnessed such all my life. Now if you would support efforts to establish a National Bank - and abolish the Federal Reserve System with it's compounded interest and collateral demanding policies - then ALL who are serious and have plausible business plans could get the loans they need for starting businesses. Yes, some will fail, but many will be successful. Some fail even under the current system. But this is the ONLY way - as long as we

have a sinful greedy, unbridled capitalist system, that there can be a real "Opportunity for all to become Wealthy" even it you still insist it is called Capitalism."

Well Actually, I agree with Don Webb! Thanks for sharing those two videos! Although I disagree with Obama on a number of very important issues, common sense tells me he is right on this one. By the way, I think I'll just write in the Prohibition Party candidate for president come Nov 2012!
