Why Occupy Supporters Support Ron Paul

Many young Occupiers support Ron Paul.

The most surprising thing to emerge at the Ron Paul Speech Thursday night, outside the library at U.C Berkeley (it was supposed to be at Zellerbach Auditorium but so many people showed up, the venue was too small so they moved it outside), was that there were so many "Occupiers" among his supporters.

But when you think about it, they share a lot in common: A suspicion of the federal reserve, what they see as an increasingly corrupt and government subsidized banking system, and a desire to end the expensive overseas wars.

Watch the video of Robert Benson, a Ron Paul supporter who's camped out outside the federal reserve building in in San Francisco.

Occam's razor suggests that they just crave attention, their 15 minutes having expired.
