So I had a lengthy debate with my unfortunate friend who called to invite me, assuming I would come flying down there with signs aloft to protest. I said to him, What a waste of time and energy when real work could be done. If I go, my plan would be to ask every person there if they'd be willing to protest with their wallets as well as their posterboard signs proclaiming END THE FED. They want to get their face out there as open protesters, but they are sucking the world dry just like anyone else. What if instead of going to some basically govt-organized protest, those same people simply walked to their banks, took out every dime of their money from their accounts and sold all of their stock? That is what I would call a protest.
So anyway, I know this has been discussed before but it seemed like a relevant poll for the day.
