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.
