60 Minutes: Congress Trading Stock on Insider Information?
Here's an article titled: 12 Facts About Money and Congress That Are So Outrageous That It Is Hard To Believe That They Are Actually True I encourage you to read it.
If all of this upsets you, it's time to learn that voting either Democrat or Republican is not the answer. Politics is a game of influence and quid pro quo. We elected our current president with virtually no track record and based solely on people believing in two words: Hope and Change. Now 3 years later, hope has been squandered and change continues to mean more of the same. Meanwhile, in that same election, there was a congressman from Texas with a 30 year track record of unwavering principles who has represented the common man unflinchingly. He runs under the Republican ticket but make no make mistake, he is a Libertarian.
If you don't know who I'm talking about. Go to youtube and search for Ron Paul. Listen to him speak. Investigate his track record. Compare his to your candidate of choice. Make your own decision.
If you want this country to return to its previous glory, we have to be educated and informed about the better options that exist. This is as true when it comes to our retirement and banking strategies as it is with who we choose to stand with when we head to the voting booth. Do not rely on the media to influence your vote. The media is bought and controlled by the financial, banking, and corporate elite who have their own special interests in keeping with the status quo. They have already decided their favorites. They will never endorse Ron Paul which is why I encourage you to do your own homework.
Perhaps instead of Occupying Wall Street, people who learn about stories like this will focus their attention on Occupying Washington D.C and the White House. You'll have one choice in November 2012. Make it count.
