Voltaire: ‘I detest what you say; I will defend to the death your right to say it’
On October 5th, 2011 visited the Occupy Wall Street demonstration and march in the financial district in downtown NYC. Took photos and made this video. I have a longer video on YouTube. I’m getting fed up with Obama, and I was one of his campaign workers. I’m afraid that people who feel like me, who will probably find both presidential candidates intolerable, may not vote. If that happens that will be the same as voting Republican, but I can’t see that Obama is any different than the Republicans regardless of what he says in his speeches. If he could only show a little enthusiasm. When asked about what he thought about the demonstrations, he gave a slow, measured reply that was without enthusiasm and brilliance: “They are expressing their dissatisfaction.” No kidding. The country is crying out for strong leadership, no matter where it comes from. I think most people are still hoping that Obama will get his act together. Only because all the Republicans are even worse. If that’s possible.
