About a week ago it got out that Bank of America realized that when the derivatives they held blew up they would go under,so what did they do? They transferred approximately 50 Trillion in derivative/credit default swap holdings from their Merrill Lynch trading division to their consumer banking division,you know the one that is FDIC insured.So now that this garbage is in a insured account, when it blows up/goes under guess who's on the hook for that? You and me,our kids and probably their kids. This video explains it pretty simply from the 4 minute mark on.

You're being robbed and they don't even have a gun.

... but it doesn't matter because "Ron Paul can't win", right?

But the bigger question is:
WHY DO PEOPLE STILL SUPPORT LETTING PRIVATE BANKERS RUN THE MONETARY SYSTEM IN THIS COUNTRY?
Why won't the people DEMAND that Congress abolish the Federal Reserve?
Answer: Americans are IGNORANT. The Vast Majority don't even know what the Federal Reserve is... let alone how it opertates.
Ron Paul is the ONLY Politician that even addresses this issue and the Banker Owned Media refuses to give him coverage. Look at the GOP Debates... nothing reported but infighting as the Bankers once again try to skew the publics perception by filtering the truth.

The question should not be who's to blame for AHCA, the question should be, "Is it working." Is there anyone out there who has signed up, had a good experience, received much cheaper healthcare than before?

Investment banks leverage up casino-like. When they fail, they put in jeopardy the commercial banks and you, Joe taxpayer, have to come to their rescue. Obama wants to stop that by implementing the Volcker Plan. Some say it doesn't go far enough, but at least it is an attempt to keep insured...
