20. Agreed...

... bankers have done everything they can to keep the workers down and their monstrous, predatory institutions need to be broken up. Criminal bankers should go to jail, not be appointed positions in the fed.

People like Hillary, who support these folks as they get wealthier by tacking fee after fee on low-balance($) customers then come tell me how hard they are fighting for me, really make me sick.

So Hillary makes about $4000./minute if her "speeches" are an hour at $250K. Yeah, I guess I can see why she thinks people unfortunate enough not to have bank accounts should have to pony up almost an hour's pay at minimum wage just to have the priviledge of getting paid for a day's work... or to have to work over half a day to cover one accidental overdraft fee of $35. per... The eggregious examples go on from there. Yeah, she's fighting for the little guy!

It's time to put campaign finance in the hands of the public and to impose regulations on broadcasters to limit what they charge for political advertising, thereby decreasing the funding needs of campaigns so they can get back to solving our problems.

Those two steps would be significant as a first move in taking the power back from the media and the banks who profit as a result of a rigged system while us citizens simply struggle to stay alive...
