    [Response to 53 percenters] "If the top 1% paid the same proportion in taxes as the bottom 47%, we wouldn't have poverty."

    And here are some of my favorite slogans seen on signs:

    - Want jobs? Bail out education

    - Land of the Fees and Home of the Slaves

    - "First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you, then you win." - Ghandi

    - Dear Wall Street: You took a lot now give a little!!

    - If you aren't one of us, you will be soon

    - The only minority destroying America is the top 1%

    - 94% of winning candidates had more money than their opponent. Is this democracy?

    - Just the beginning...

    - "The power of the people is stronger than the people in power."
