Comment from Mike Rivero:

We are not a capitalist society any more. We have degenerated into fascism. What Occupy America wants is a return to true capitalism where you keep the money you make and if you lose money that is your own tough luck.

A fascist economy is where corporations get to keep the profits they make but pass the losses onto the general population as “Bailouts”. Which is what the USA is doing right now.

Asked about the coming US election, Davis responded: “The two-party system has never worked; it does not work now, and we clearly need alternatives. Personally I believe we need a powerful, radical, third party. In the meantime, this movement, which is not a party, can accomplish much that political parties are unable to accomplish and so it would seem to me, that the best way to exert pressure on that corrupt two party system is to continue to build this movement and to demonstrate that it reaches not only across the country but across the ocean.”
