59. When you examine the utter lack of regulation or punishment of wall street and the banks

 

especially after the "bailout" theft, a lack of oversight regarding the illegal foreclosure mill run by local and foreign banks (robosigning has been known about for over two years), banks stifling investigation into foreclosures, and a genuine unwillingness among other things for either party to even breath a bad word against the endless war budget of the military industrial complex, much less making it simply stop, or in regards to the continuing neocon 9/11 power grab, which includes the hilariously named "patriot act", TSA, DHS, the HR347 "anti-Occupy/protesting" law, NDAA with its indefinite detention of US citizens without trial or representation, the warrantless wiretapping FISA law...and the 2013 versions of the NDAA and FISA were signed into a years' extension just this week. Also, drones drones drones. 64 drone bases planned inside the US, drone sales to law enforcement, a creeping police state, 7,400+ Occupiers arrested and beaten with nary a whisper from the white house...

Or even to stop the simple issue of the Citizens United ruling, which allows corporations and the rich to spend unlimited amounts of money to influence elections and lobby elected officials. Note that Mussolini called Fascism "the merger of state and corporation". We are now a Fascist country under his definition, and elected officials aren't doing anything to change this. Or to even reinstate the bank regulation of Glass Steagall.

Who run Bartertown? Wall Street run Bartertown. Neither party are doing anything to stop the man behind the curtain. Meanwhile, Goldman Sachs have installed officials in office in Italy and Greece through the social engineering/theft process called "austerity". This is a Trend, and it is not one friendly to the people of this country, of the world.
