From the start the banks will ALWAYS be bailed out first. This always happens in the US. When the S&L crisis occurred we allowed the banks the write off their loses over 40 years, enough to mask the fact that all banks were insolvent at the time. You see, when you are in the fiat business the most important thing is to make sure that the people have faith in your currency. Otherwise, it is worth nothing! The way they do this is through legal tender laws. The banks have owned the united states for quite some time now. They own the US congress, they own the courts, they own all the important corporations, and they own all the important land.

Listen to 3:18:00 of this movie. He describes exactly what is going on in this country:

Reality of Money - Edward Griffin

The next step to hit the fan will be inflation. Get ready!! It'll take a couple years though.
