Let the Kleptocratic Larcenists fail. Break up the behemoth banks. Do not subsidize them. They are strangling the life out of us, and are nothing but greedy vampire squid zombies who want to make us their slaves. The President, the Congress, and We the People can do this. FDR stood up to these Fascists, and we can too. We must, while there is still a planet left. The Private Central Banking Club that is the Fed, and Wall Street, and the gargantuan corporations want to Sequester us even more? How dare they. We can't let them do it.
