The Single Most Important Issue Facing America
I’ve read over all of the comments on facebook, twitter, etc. It saddens me that most widely miss the mark.
Government corruption, and its complete capture, by those that they are supposed to regulate, is the single most prevalent issue. It goes deeper and is far more complex than a stupid sound bite or a one sentence explanation.
|Signers of the U.S. Constitution|
After the repeal of the Glass Steagall act, financial institutions were allowed to merge cross platform industries. Retail banks could merge with commercial and investment banks. They argued that when the economy was good, the population invested in the market. When the economy was bad, they saved. In order to allow a one stop shop, they wanted to merge the two. Some senators and congressmen immediately saw that this would create monolithic entities that would crash the system, but no one listened.
Let’s go back even further to understand today. The banks put out propaganda saying “the banks don’t want your house, they want your payments.” During the 1800s the banking community was a bit more overt. They passed around a “memo” saying, “if you mess with the banks we will crash the economy and buy all the property up, pennies on the dollar.” Fast forward 100 years, and guess what happened? In fact, they have done this over and over and over.
Also remember, they finance the wars, they finance the crashes, they finance the middle-class slipping into the lower-class, they finance the democrats, they finance the republicans. Only a fool looks at our system and thinks there is someone somewhere who is honest and pure and just isn’t being listened to. No politician is paying attention to you. They are being financed.
The american citizen is under direct assault. They are financing your freedom right out the door.
Anyone saying anything other than the economy is the single-most important issue, is a fool. This is america, the dollar is king. Yes it can buy happiness. It can buy power. And, with enough of it, it can buy freedom.
I’m amazed no citizen groups have pooled their money to finance and float their own candidates. You call yourselves adults? Don’t you realize what’s going on?
