I dropped by as the Occupy Houston protestors were gathering outside City Hall Thursday morning. The Occupy Wall Street protests have gone global, and when I arrived in Austin later in the day, a similar one was going on there, too. In Houston, the gathering garnered a lot of drum beating and chanting and people holding signs calling for everything from the repeal of Supreme Court decisions to eliminating the Federal Reserve. One sign even said “recycle the rich.”

Christopher Keeble, though, seemed a little out of place. He was wearing a tie and holding a sign that read “I <3 Capitalism.” It caught my attention, since the Occupy movement has been billed as some sort of liberal Tea Party.

Yet Keeble wasn’t a counter-protester amid the throng. Keeble, who told me he works in sales, said he came to the protest because he wanted to fight the perception that it was some sort of socialist gathering. In fact, it’s his love of capitalism that caused him to show up.

“Capitalism isn’t the problem,” he said. “Capitalism is being destroyed from within.”
