  1. Bring back banking regulations

    The banking industry needs to heavily regulated to return them to their primary function: loaning money to business and individuals. Currently, without regulation, they operate more like casinos playing a dangerous game betting against America.

      • Put a regulatory leash & collar on America's dominant & woefully unproductive financial sector.

        The vast, unproductive expasion of America's financial sector has been counter productive, turning into a "rent taking" industry. Speculative leverage with casino style bets with depositors money has sadly become the new capitalist model. No more.

        • Prosecute the banksters

          Widespread financial fraud by banksters, lawyers, and accountants should be met by aggressive prosecution. Moral hazard demands accountability.

            The mega-banks are too big to fail, manage and are too big for the U.S. economy. Break them up!

              • Recommit to American obligations to balance our accounts with the rest of the world via its trade.

                Recommit to American obligations under the Bretton Woods agreement to balance our accounts with the rest of the world via balanced trade and reverse the hollowing out of the American economy.

                • How about the congress explain why we didn't re enact the glass steigal act on the banks.

                  I think our politicions need to let us know why we can't bring back the glass stiegal act back & other ones that saved us from the last depression. I want all politicions to let the public know whats good about not having it now. And whats the good reason why we can't break up the banks.

                  • Constitutional debt-free money to rebuild infrastructure - unlimited job creation

                    A New Book Provides a Wake-up Call to Americans in a declining economy.
                    Reality Of Money and The Federal Reserve by Stephen Clark and Frank Wallace explores the prime cause for America’s national debt and outlines the steps needed to reverse it.
                    If knowledge truly is power, then this book carries more than its fair share to inform the American people on the alarming pattern of corruption and unfair usury practiced in the United States each and every day.
                    Here are a few of the documented potential benefits of government issued, debt-free money spent, not loaned into circulation:

                    • Take back control of our own money as Article I, Section 8, Clause 5 of the Constitution mandates.

                      THE WAY OUT
                      The primary cause of a recession is a shortage of money in the hands of the American people, the way out of recession is to put more money in their hands. Under the present monetary system this can only be done by borrowing more and going even deeper in debt. It is difficult for people to understand that we actually have no money, that, instead of money we circulate bank-created interest-bearing debt as a "substitute money." The American Monetary Act takes three simple steps to correct this problem.
                      (1) It incorporates the Federal Reserve Banks into the…

                      • Prosecute Wall Street Banksters from the Top to the Bottom

                        The US Attorney General needs to prosecute those who looted America for their fraudulent, compiratorial business practices.

                        I am sick of hearing how "difficult" it is to bring these cases. This is evading the truth that the corruption stretches from Wall Street to DC and beyond.

                        • Exchange mortgage principal write downs for future price appreciation

                          Create agreement with banks to write down mortgage principals today in exchange for future price appreciation. Base new mortgage on actual income levels that puts billions of current debt service dollars back into consumers pockets. Banks get future price appreciation to pay off old mortgage when property sells in the future.

                          • Create a publicly owned mortgage entity

                            Use 'troubled mortgage' assets to start a mortgage company owned by Social Security. Interest paid would create contributions to the social security system. Moneycontributed to social security but previously used in the general fund general fund would be used to justify the initial cost of funding the startup. Thereafter Social Security would have a profit center other than direct contribution. A rule to limit each citizen to one mortgage for personal habitation would limit competition to private mortgage companies.

                            • Educate the citizenry on the unrealized powers of The Federal Reserve system; how it actually works

                              www.MoneyAsDebt.net. Two (2) popular, stellar, and stunning YouTube animated documentaries are available that detail the arithmetic of the money system: "Money as Debt" (a 5 part series), and its follow-up animated documentary "Money as Debt II: Promises Unleashed" (an 8 part YouTube series) made after the crash. WAIT 16 seconds for the YouTube video to begin actually displaying animation: Debt as Money: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVkFb26u9g8 . Money as Debt II: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_doYllBk5No&feature=related ...or simply search for both: "Debt as Money". Pretty shocking insights into exponential money creation powers banks have and what it means in a fractal reserve banking system. Knowledge is…

                                  • Have everyone move their money to local banks and credit unions

                                    Take away the power of the "too large to fail" banks by using local credit unions and banks instead. They would lend money out to small businesses insteadof hoarding it or worse still, using it to buy up other banks.
