“Occupy Wall Street,” the movement that protests against big government’s relationship with Wall Street, is now in more than 250 cities across the U.S. and 800 around the world. The movement claims the big business leaders who call the shots on Wall Street are to blame for the stumbling economy.
Now that the protests have begun in South Carolina, 1st District Congressman Tim Scott says–
“Everybody has a right to do what they want to do, that’s what makes America great, but there’s no question that it seems to me that what their objective is isn’t to make our financial systems crash, it is to make anarchy a real possibility in our country–which is total chaos. It is the epitome of all things that do not fall under the rule of law,” says Scott.
Scott says the country’s founding fathers had it right.
“We do not have a perfect country, but we have the best thing going on the Earth, and the reason why that is is because our rights come under the rule of law, which means that all men, whether you agree or disagree, fall under constitutional opportunities, which starts with responsibility,” says Scott.
Anarchy, which is the absence of public government, is exactly what Scott says the country is heading toward with these protests.
“The folks that we see on TV occupying Wall Street and occupying cities throughout this nation is one thing: It’s anarchy, and it’s being funded and fueled by MoveOn.org, by other organizations who have one objective–to stir the pot in hopes of keeping the current system of moving towards Socialism alive and well,” says Scott.
In Scott’s district, “Occupy Charleston” will begin Wednesday with a 99-hour protest.
