No doubt the Wall St shysters made off with more than all the criminals in history, but GOP "dregulation" made it legal. And they did it while simultaneously crashing the world economy. Technically, what they did probably wasn't illegal. But they need to be checked from a repeat performance. Because they'll certainly do it all over again if they're permitted to.

Seems simple enough.

If enough people abandoned their banks, the problems banks have would fix themselves.

DOH!
You really have no idea how complex the Financial System is, do you?

Several false premises here.

1. Obama-Romney is a loss for the nation, no one wins.

2. AG-Holder is not prosecuting now and has no intention to prosecute because he and Lanny Breuer worked for a law firm that defended same big banks.

Obama is owned by Goldman Sachs/JP Morgan every bit as Bush and Clinton before him.

I suggest the communists go to Russia where Putin will be creating your new utopia.

Since the Democrats have declared those wars on women and minorities for the GOP I guess I voted wrong. Can Obama dismantle the banking system on his own hook? Not till he declares himself the dictator, I don't think.

Sorry, my opinion here. Art history should not be a major but a hobby.
