    Governments are a distraction on a massive scale, preventing people from realizing their own potential for immediate change.

    So? Congress is passing laws helping those they truly represent....corporations and banks. What? You thought politicians represented "you" ?

    Of course they are, it`s all about the money. They don`t give a f*ck about the average Joe on the street because he doesn`t line their pockets with ca$h.

    The problem is that Government even has the funds to bail out the banks in the first place. The more power you give the federal government. the more power they have to tax and spend without limits, the more power it has to pick winners and losers, the more reason people and companies will have to exert funds and effort to influence the government. The answer to all of this is, as the founding fathers recognized, is to significantly limit the powers of the federal government. Until people realize this and act to reimpose limitations this is what you will continue to get, from every party, in every election and congress, every time.

    "This didn`t happen because of some massive public demand..."

    LOL, like the other bills that pass because of massive public demand. The last massive public demand was legal pot in Colorado. His shirt, Colorado. ergo, he`s stoned.

    Serious question, where are the I-A-B Conservatives here? It really makes me think they are GOP Murdoch drones......

    The Democrats aren`t innocent in this either. Some actually voted for this.

    Can we actually do something about this?
