It is clear that the Banksters own our government for any observant person. They also buy our politicians. In 1994, Brooksley Born tried to regulate derivatives, well before they are a danger to the economic system. 13 Bankers told her and Summers who is Boss as seen in the small transcript below.

If 13 common citizens walked into Summers office and told him to stop something, they would be thrown out by security.

So, how do we get the banksters and wall street politicians as well out of our government when we have no control over who to elect. Since, it is the same people also buying the politicians to run for office?

[quote]"I walk into Brooksley's office one day; the blood has drained from her face," says Michael Greenberger, a former top official at the CFTC who worked closely with Born. "She's hanging up the telephone; she says to me: 'That was [former Assistant Treasury Secretary] Larry Summers. He says, "You're going to cause the worst financial crisis since the end of World War II."... [He says he has] 13 bankers in his office who informed him of this. Stop, right away. No more.'"[/quote]

Private issuance and regulation of our credit and currency is the root cause of all our many problems. Over time whoever controls the currency will control the nation.

I have no doubt that these Wall Street Bankers also were the ones drawing up the "Free Trade Agreements" which they have profited from handsomely, at the expense of the rest of the nation.

They sell it to the public via false claims like "helping everyone own a home", in order to intentionally build a bubble, and sell everyone in the world rated triple AAA securities that were not worth the paper they were printed on.

If they were earnestly "helping out" people, then they would have bailed out the home owners, but we know that was not the game plan in the beginning.

They played everyone as suckers, and put the blame fully on them.

Well, guess what, the moral of the story their teaching is not to trust the financial industry, nor the institutions, nor the economists in this country.

So, what happens to a country when all trust is lost in its institutions, financial industry, government etc?

It collapses.

These guys that thought they were so smart, and who were at the head of this with their policies have destroyed this country, and I hope they burn in hell when it is their time to depart this world.

This is the kind of exposure OWS needs to see. Most people here haven't fully awakened yet. Most people in general still think that somehow the entire globe all decided simultaneously to rise up against their governments. This is nonsense. To still think, at this point that this "global uprising" somehow ARBITRARILY happened belies common sense! OF COURSE it has been engineered. Anyone who thinks differently is not an independent thinker. WAKE UP!
