The letters condemning the Tea Party and the “far right” for threatening the well being of the Country and indeed everyone’s financial security going forward have become an almost daily ritual in the Camera as the so called debt limit crisis plays out. It is ridiculous that those writing put blame on the citizens that are demanding responsibility and accountability from the very government and investment banks that actually have already collaborated to destroy the economy and now still believe they have the right to run the show. Most of those in both the Senate and House, regardless of party, should have resigned after they failed so miserably to manage a situation that was actually no surprise to those paying attention. After their failure to regulate the corruption, they turned around and gave 16+ trillion dollars to the very same corrupt Wall Street banks as well as several foreign banks and no one went to jail or lost their phony baloney government job. After running deficits for years, they simply piled more debt on top to try and prop the collapsed economy back up. Well, it won’t work.
The best thing that can be done now is to repeal all “free trade” agreements, withdraw from the WTO, reimpose appropriate tariffs and duties on foreign goods including those made by American companies abroad and shipped back here including all imported oil. We need to stop pretending that we are engaging in “free trade” when many of our trading partners have one tenth the labor costs and little of the regulation involved with manufacturing here. The income tax needs to be abolished and the Federal Reserve Bank that protects the interests of these investment banks needs to be dissolved. The letters condemning my “radical” proposals may be forthcoming but since most writers only parrot the words of their party leaders and aren’t really interested in solving the long term problems of the country so be it. What is obvious, however, is that more money in future interest payments to the international banking establishment only further enriches that corrupt element and bankrupts our Nation.
