6. All those people are just tools
The movers behind them are the ones to focus on - the financiers. Paulson, Bernanke, Geithner, Summers, Greenspan, Blankfein, Dimon, Lewis, and so on and so forth. You can get every last person on your list put away and NOTHING will change. They are agents, not commanders.

This country is run by the demands of debt holders, and the longer you look back in history the more evidence you will see that this has been going on a very, very long time. Every war this side of WW2 that this country has been involved in can be traced to them (e.g., just take a look at our obscene history in South America, nation after nation subjugated to make them suitable for commercial plantations, or in the Middle East, for exploitation of oil).

Strike the root, not the branches. All those you name deserve to be put away permanently but don't be fooled into thinking that a single thing will change. They are simply replaced by others who are willing to do the same or worse. We need fundamental systemic change.
