Columnist Ron Smith says the Occupy Wall Street movement is "creepy" ("Is serious social unrest in our future?" Oct. 7). Really? How about the movement bankrolled by billionaires where people parade around in powdered wigs and proclaim the evils of Social Security?
Sometimes, I think GOP must stand for Gullible Old People. Republican voters have been duped into electing politicians who want our government to fail and then whine when it does. Do they even know who the 1 percent are? They are the millionaires who play musical chairs on corporate boards and decide if you will keep your job, or your pension, or your house. The contrast between what they produce and what they collect is obscene. I am proud of the people demonstrating on Wall Street and around the country; they are standing up for us.
The middle class built this country, and it's time to take it back from those who would have us all be serfs.
