US congress today is about as powerful as a student council in high school. Remember high school? Changing the student council, or even forming a new student council “party”, never changed anything. The principal makes all the key decisions. The principal runs things.
The unelected evil banker elite have started making our key decisions today. The unelected evil banker elite think they should run things. They are the problem. Unfortunately, US congress has become as impotent as a high school student council. Here’s the bottom line:
Until politicians and media pundits start talking about true economic regime change–shutting down the FED and arresting the evil banker elite, they are irrelevant. Discussing tiny little adjustments at the margin (changing the student council) is a tactic used by the evil banker elite to weaken and slow down the profound changes that are needed. It is just like high school principals who use the student council to dissipate student anger away from themselves by pretending that the student council actually makes a difference–it doesn’t.
Shut down the FED and arrest the evil elite bankers.
The first question we should ask any candidate for President is this: If elected, will you promise to arrest every banker for whom we have probable cause to believe they committed a crime?
If the Answer is Yes, we will listen. But, if the Answer is No, then we ought not to listen as any candidate who does not listen to us is against us and not for us.
This is a non-negotiable issue. If you will not arrest the people who stole tens of trillions of dollars, how will you put an end to Bailouts, Austerity Cuts and Mindless Tax Increases?
I don’t care if you are a member of my political party, my religion, my race, my gender or my veterans group. I don’t care how photogenic your children are. I don’t care about any other issues you run off at the mouth about.
If you cannot and will not listen to me, there is no reason why I should listen to you.
When Ben Bernanke created 16.1 trillion dollars out of nothing and gave it to the bankers and to big corporations, he did nothing to help us. But he did everything to inflate the currency and raise prices. We are all 11% poorer this year than last because you said and did nothing to stop the inflation the Federal Reserve unleashed. 6.1 trillion of those dollars went to buy back fraudulent loans from the Europeans so Ben’s banker buddies would not have to go to jail.
Again you did nothing so I must assume these banking criminals are your friends. If that be true, then they should be your only friends.
The Lies Will Stop Here. The Lies Will Stop Now.
‘The big banks do very little traditional banking. Most of their business is from financial speculation. For example, less than 10% of Bank of America’s assets come from traditional banking deposits.
Time Magazine gave some historical perspective in 1993: What would happen to the U.S. economy if all its commercial banks suddenly closed their doors? Throughout most of American history, the answer would have been a disaster of epic proportions, akin to the Depression wrought by the chain-reaction bank failures in the early 1930s. But [today] the startling answer is that a shutdown by banks might be far from cataclysmic.’
Signs of the Times:
According to a recent CBS News/New York Times poll, Congress has a disapproval rating of 82%.
A recent Washington Post poll found that 78 percent of Americans are dissatisfied “with the way this country’s political system is working.”
