Forum Post: Worse than Bernie...

When I think of Bernie Madoff, I think of a slick-haired, lying, cheating, heartless, soul-less, two-faced greedy bastard who ruined thousands of lives with his manipulation of an unregulated financial system. For what Bernie Madoff did, he deserves to be drawn and quartered. I can't think of anyone more notorious, more unscrupulous, than Bernie Madoff in recent history.

Oh, wait. I take that back. Every member of Congress just orchestrated the biggest Ponzy Scheme in the history of the world to the tune of $16 Trillion dollars. Our very own Congress makes Bernie Madoff look like Santa Claus.

So, by definition, shouldn't Congress be drawn and quartered as "Traitors" too? Who on Earth can possibly hold them accountable? Oh, wait. That's right. WE the People. WE the People have the right to tell Congress to stand down. WE the People hold the right of Impeachment.

OK. So, I'll be the first to say it. "Go home, Congress." "You are hereby officially Impeached from office." "Your willing participation, and outright ignorance, to the destruction of the U.S. Economy has rendered you unqualified to hold office at a State or Federal level."

There. I said it. Now, who else is going to stand up and say the same thing? Who has the balls to come right out and say it?

Occupy WallSt, not elected representatives. They may be corrupted but who corrupts them?

Wall Street

I recently heard it explained this way. With corrupt business comes corrupt politics. With corrupt politics comes corrupt business. They go hand-in-hand. OWS needs to have a serious discussion about this premise. You can get rid of a corrupt Wall Street; but the corrupt politicians will simply find new CEO's to play their dirty game. I understand OWS is about business on Wall Street. I get that. But, surely, you realize that it is a bi-lateral issue that requires a bi-lateral solution. Tell me you realize this.
