VIDEO: Ron Paul Defends Occupy Wall Street

Representative Ron Paul joined Patch for a Q&A session at The Draft in Concord today.

Ron Paul is one of the few Republicans who said he agrees with both the Tea Party and Occupy protesters.

The Republican candidate defended both movements at a Q&A session with Patch editors in Concord today.

When asked about Occupy Wall Street, he said it was unfair to dismiss the concerns that are being expressed by the protesters.

He added that, much like the Tea Party, there are always individuals who make the movement look bad.

While he supports public anger towards government and banks, Paul said that we should avoid blaming businessmen who have gained wealth honestly.

I have no doubt that water seeks its own level. :-)

@ Tony I've heard the Nascar patch suggestion before, and I love it!

John, have you been reading off Glen Beck's chalkboard? Do you have any sources to support these claims?

@ LJoel Isn't it wild how people claim Obama screwed up our economy? They do! With a straight face! They'd have you believe GWB handed over an America to Obama that was humming along just fine. Actually, America was doing fine when Bill Clinton handed off to GWB. Remember those Clinton years? All that peace and prosperity? Bush was appointed by the SCOTUS, and in less than a year everything went to hell.
