Up until now, the vast majority of
Americans had no idea that insider trading was actually
legal for members of Congress. Will the shocking
revelations that have come to light in recent days finally
be enough to motivate the American people to start throwing
all of the con men and charlatans out of Congress? This
is the question asked by endoftheamericandream.com.
According to the 60 Minutes, the members of
Congress have been using secrets that they have learned during
the course of their duties to make huge amounts of money
in the stock market. During the financial crisis of 2008,
some Congressmen and Congresswomen were making huge stock
moves that would only pay off if the market crashed really
hard. In short, the US government at the time of crisis was
not focusing on creating legislation that would help the
U.S. financial system survive but rushing to make a huge
profit for themselves.
It is not hard to notice that nearly all US
politicians are wealthy elitists and are rapidly becoming wealthier at
the time when 99% of the population are doing really tough.
Today, the average net worth for a member of Congress is
approximately 3.8 million dollars,
and the collective net worth for all Congress members increased
by 25 percent between 2008
While these con artists have occupied the Capital
Hill for two decades or even two centuries, yesterday they

had occupied the place for two long - almost two months!
And now President Obama is seeking to start
new wars in Middle East and in Asia to create more opportunities
to earn more commissions or rebates from the military
and related industry, and it is the ordinary US citizens
who will have to pay for the wars with their money, surely,
and plus their lives, probably.
While at the same time, Obama and his colleagues
at Capital Hill still have the nerve to talk about promoting
human rights in the world! Do they ever care about the basic
survival rights of the 99% people in their own country?
Now the American people are learning the truth.
Are they going to defend their rights and re-occupy what
were taken away from them or just give up and let the corporate-government
keep ripping them off?
Here are some clues:
how come the Americans are always saying Mexico
is corrupt when US sets the gold standard.
Schmidt - East Meadow High School:
I've gone from loving my country to not even
wanting to display the American flag any longer because it
no longer stands for liberty and freedom. I've even gave
up on the GOP campaign because there is not one politician
you can trust.
