*******4 THINGS TO PROTEST NOW ON WALL STREET*******
These protestors are gaining traction, but they are still missing specific objectives. They need objectives. They need to focus in on some needed changes and demand that they happen now!
The underlying problem is CORRUPTION. Our monetary system is corrupt. Our political system is corrupt. Our corporations are corrupt. Our banks are corrupt. Our media are corrupt. The politicians and banks and corporations and media are all in bed together, creating the most corrupt, overeached conglomerate in the history of mankind. The corruption will end in massive violence, social uphaval, political and economic collapse, the likes of which our generations cannot even yet fathom. The only chance we have to fix this thing is by demanding change now. Here are a couple issues of the top of my head, things that piss me off, that could easily be targeted by the Occupy Wall Street crowds, things that the masses could understand, and that the 99% could most likely unanimously agree on:
1. Make Congressional insider trading ILLEGAL!!! Holy sh!t this pisses me off. Why are these as$clowns, the people who MAKE laws, the very laws that could hurt or reward publicly traded companies, allowed to legally inside trade?? Just saw a stat that 94% of elections are won by those with the most money. Other stats show that onc ein office, reelection is HIGHLY likely. Well, putting two and two together, it's because they crooks, ah hem, I mean politicians, enrich themselves in office, and get in chaoots with corporations right off the bat to ensure funding for the next election. People need to wake up and realize that our Congress is 100% bought and paid for special interests.
2. How about we demand that corporations NOT be classified as PEOPLE!! Ok, I'm getting worked up just writing this post. Mitt Romney put a nice spin on it during one of the recent elections when he said he agreed with calling a corporation a person because "corporations are made up of people." What a snake! And people think this guy will look out for them?? Look who our Presidential choices are!! This is DISGUSTING!
3. How about this. How about we actually seek justice against high level criminals! Americans are obsessed with throwing the book at people who commit victimless crimes (prostitution, marijuana use, etc) and petty crimes (shoplifting). Our jails and prisons are full of these types of nonviolent criminals. Yet, NOT ONE Wall Streeter has been prosecuted over the mortgage catastrophe.
4. Here's one more: End the FED! It is clearly UnConstitutional. How anyone can even possibly justify its legality is beyond me. The Federal Reserve is a private group made of unknown banks, several of which are likely not even American. We have another Presidential candidate, Herman Cain, who would NOT want to audit the Fed. He also happens to have once worked for the Fed. WHY WOULD WE NOT AUDIT THE ORGANIZATION UNDERPINNING OUR ENTIRE MONETARY SYSTEM??!!! The IRS can audit YOU. If the government can pay for audits of middle class citizens, it can sure as hell pay for ONE audit of the Federal Reserve. In fact, I guarantee you could find patriotic professionals willing to audit it pro bono. Ditto for Fort Knox.
So there you go. 4 things off the top of my head that should piss you off. 4 things that normal Americans should be able to understand. 4 things that can be changed with the stroke of a pen. 4 specific things that these protestors can all agree on and get behind. 4 things to turn this corruption around, to demand accountability.
-Make Congressional insider trading illegal!
-Overturn the Supreme Court ruling that calls a corporation a human!
-Prosecute the Wall Street crooks worth hundreds of millions and Billions of dollars, the ones that knowingly broke laws to enrich and empower themselves. They are easy to find and we can create a list.
-End the Fed
