I say we demand that people be held accountable for the actions that have resulted in this crisis. We, the people, did not do this to ourselves. We are hardworking, ethical and patriotic. We wake up everyday and go to work and take care of our families and care for our community. It's the bankers and CEOs and wall street type that gamble big with people's lives they could care less about. It's those people who got us into this mess. And it's those people who the government is more willing to help. They get to be bailed out, and they get to keep their positions of power. And it's us, the average American, that is left to face the consequences of their actions.
We should simply demand accountability.
Maybe this means a government agency that files through the mess and irresponsible actions can be traced to actual people, rather than just "the bankers" or "the wall streeters". Actual names of people that are to be tried. We should demand jail time for those who have done illegal things, and firing of those who are simply not taking their positions of power with the responsibility it needs. It is not acceptable that WE are the ones suffering while the people that got us into this mess get off free, and we should make it clear that we will not back down and we will not be silenced until there is some accountability set into motion.
