Has Freedom Died in America?

Quotes of the Day:

"And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise" -- Jesus of Nazareth, Luke 6:31 (KJV)

"Liberty is the only thing you cannot have unless you are willing to give it to others." -- William Allen White

----

Once upon a time, in a country known as the land of the free and the home of the brave, these words were rarely heard:

"May I see your papers please?"

But, increasingly, the free and the brave became dependent and cowardly. They begged to wear chains.

Many fought the trend, but even they were undone, because some in their ranks harbored fears greater than their love of freedom.

Remember where you heard this . . .

If American freedom dies, the widespread desire to control immigration will have been a major factor.

And remember where you heard this . . .

If the fight to defeat the creation of a national ID card FAILS, it will be because of the widespread desire to control immigration. Let us not forget, we have drawn the line on Real ID. Five years have gone by, and we've stalled implementation. But now, other Real ID Jr. proposals are building a head of steam.

So remember where you heard this . . .

Americans will have to carry internal passports, and show them to State officials constantly, and have every aspect of their lives controlled by far off know-it-alls in the federal bureaucracy. Your federal overlords will gain increased control over . . .

* Where, how, and even if you can earn a living
* Whether or not you can board a train, or enter a federal building
* Whether or not you can cash a check, or buy guns or alcohol
* What kind of healthcare you receive
* How long you'll stand in line at the DMV, and whether you can have a license
* Whether or not you can be stopped on our streets, and even detained, for failure to display your card
* And many other aspects of your life

This total control will be made possible by a national identification system that was put in place in order to control immigration. But it will really control YOU!

In this way, immigration control and registration is just like gun control and registration -- it most deeply affects law-abiding citizens.

Remember where you heard this . . .

The immigration debate is NOT about what Mexicans will be allowed to do, IT'S about what YOU will be allowed to do. It's about YOUR freedom . . .

* First the politicians wanted to curtail your freedom to protect you from terrorists
* Now they want to curtail your freedom to protect you from Mexicans

Remember where you heard this . . .

The immigration debate is a scam. It's fear-mongering, foisted by busy-bodies of all varieties. The result will be Bigger Government in Washington, DC. It will control YOU. And now, it's up to YOU to decide . . .

Are you afraid of terrorists and Mexicans? ...or whatever hobgoblin the Big Government Fearmongers will conjure next?

Will you be free and brave, or dependent and cowardly? Will you trade YOUR FREEDOM for a false promise of protection?

This is how we see the issue. And if you end up in chains, remember who warned you. We did.

Meanwhile, for the brave who want to remain free, let the spirit of resistance continue . . .

Please send a letter to Congress opposing all national identification schemes, including the new attempt by Senators Schumer and Graham, to MAKE ALL OF US CARRY Social Security cards with biometric identifiers.

In addition to this campaign's hardwired letter to Congress, which reads as follows -- "Please don't try to fix the REAL ID Act. Please, just repeal it." -- we suggest you add the following in your personal comments . . .

"Please oppose any legislation that contains any support for any kind of national identification system. I specifically oppose plans for a Social Security card containing biometric identifiers. I do not want ANY national identification scheme, and I reject your claim that I need such a system in order to be protected from terrorists and Mexican immigrants. I am not afraid! And I want you to stop being afraid on my behalf."

You can send your letter to Congress here: https://secure.downsizedc.org/etp/campaigns/30

Our thanks go to those who prefer bravery and freedom.

Words to Our Legislators - NO More Excuses

We the people of this great nation are tired of excuses. We are constantly hearing lackluster reasons why we need legislation that we do not want. We constantly here them try to justify taking away our liberties, but Americans are tired of excuses.

Most Americans want to see action taken, they want legislators who will stand against legislation that is unconstitutional. They want legislators who will be the lone wolf if necessary and be the voice of reason during heated debate.

The time for excuses is done, the time for results is now. Americans are already rallying behind those who are running against incumbents. Americans will show their disdain for the lack of representation in the mid term elections as well as the presidential elections.

Americans will start voting in favor of more third party candidates and true conservatives who will not vote according to the will of their party but vote for the will of the people and in accordance to the Constitution.

The United States will see an immense change over the next few years. Let us all use due diligence and learn as much about each candidate as possible before we support any of them.

Stand up, Speak up, Live Free

URGENT: Audit the Fed Amendment Vote TOMORROW

URGENT: Audit the Fed Amendment Vote TOMORROW
Posted by James Leroy Wilson

As you know, the "financial regulation" bills offered up by the House and Senate will do considerable harm.

But the House version has one thing going for it: the bill they passed includes Ron Paul's proposal to Audit the Federal Reserve.

The Senate hasn't passed their bill yet. But Banking Chairman Chris Dodd stripped the House's Audit the Fed provision from the Senate version.

A trans-partisan coalition of Senators, including the Independent Bernie Sanders, Democrat Russ Feingold, and Republican Jim DeMint, are proposing an amendment to Audit the Fed in the senate bill.

This amendment could be voted on Tuesday, May 4. Tomorrow.

DownsizeDC.org has joined a coalition of organizations in signing a letter that opposes the overall bill, but which supports this amendment. Here is the letter . . .

Dear Senator,

Although we oppose S. 3217, the financial regulatory reform legislation currently being considered on the Senate floor, we urge you to vote for Sens. Sanders, Feingold, DeMint, and Vitter's Federal Reserve Transparency Amendment.

This amendment is similar to S.604, the Federal Reserve Sunshine Act, which was offered as an amendment to last year's Budget Resolution. S. 604 has 33 bipartisan cosponsors. The Federal Reserve Transparency Act (H.R. 1207), the House companion bill, has 320 bipartisan cosponsors. A slightly modified version of H.R. 1207 passed the House Financial Services Committee by a vote of 43-28 and was incorporated into the financial reform bill passed by the House.

This amendment does not take away the "independence" of the Fed. It simply requires the GAO to conduct an independent audit of the Fed and requires the Fed to release the names of the recipients of more than $2 trillion in taxpayer-backed assistance during this latest economic crisis.

S. 3217 unacceptably increases the Fed's powers at a time when the American people are demanding answers as to what the Federal Reserve has been doing with the powers it currently possesses. It also strips out the strong audit language contained in the House's reform bill in favor of a watered-down approach that allows the Fed to continue operating in secret. Any true financial reform effort will start with requiring accountability from our nation's central bank.

Therefore, we urge you to work for a standalone vote on S. 604 and, if S. 3217 is brought up for a vote, strongly encourage you to support increased transparency at the Federal Reserve by voting in favor of the Fed Transparency Amendment.

Sincerely,

Americans for Tax Reform
Center for Fiscal Accountability
Campaign for Liberty
The Rutherford Institute
DownsizeDC.org, Inc.
The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste
U.S. Bill of Rights Foundation
Eagle Forum
FreedomWorks

We urge you to also send a letter telling the Senate to support the Sanders/Feingold/DeMint/Vitter amendment for Fed Transparency using DownsizeDC.org's Educate the Powerful System.

Time is of the essence. Forward this to your contacts. And by the time you receive this Dispatch . . .

* It will have been posted on our Facebook fan page for you to share: http://www.facebook.com/downsizedc

* And also on our Twitter page for you to retweet: http://twitter.com/DDCDispatch

Thanks for taking action!

Sneaky Underhanded Power Grab Underway in Washington

HUGE POWER GRAB UNDERWAY IN WASHINGTON
-- Democrats looking to get almost ten, brand new anti-gunners in Congress


Friday, April 30, 2010

The Democrat-controlled Congress and the White House are pulling out all the stops to offset the oncoming tidal wave that is threatening to throw them out of power this November.

With their polls sagging badly, the liberal Democrats rammed through a Puerto Rican statehood resolution yesterday which many consider the first step towards making Puerto Rico the 51st state -- a move that would give liberal progressives in the Congress six more Representatives and two new Senators.

Making Puerto Rico a state would bring another gun control bastion into our nation and bring almost ten anti-gun congressmen and senators into the Congress.

This is disgraceful! With her party's polls plummeting, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is trying to get as many additional progressives into Congress as possible so that she can continue advancing her liberal, anti-American agenda.

Regarding the statehood resolution, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) says it "is the Puerto Rico statehood bill which is being pushed by the new progressive party in Puerto Rico trying to create a federally [sanctioned] vote that they say is nonbinding but would give them the legitimacy to then come back and try to seat people in the United States Congress."

To see how your congressman voted on the Puerto Rican statehood resolution, go to:
http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2010/roll242.xml

GOA will keep you updated as to when a vote is scheduled in the U.S. Senate.

GOA helps kill Pelosi's attempt to give DC a vote in Congress

Not to be satisfied with merely eight new liberal votes from Puerto Rico, liberal Democrats want to give statehood to Washington, DC. S. 160 would take a major step in that direction by giving this federal enclave a vote in the House of Representatives.

The bill is the DC Voting Rights Act, otherwise known as the DC Vote Grab Act. It would make Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton a legitimate voting member of the U.S. House of Representatives.

If you know anything about Del. Norton, you know that she is one of the most liberal, anti-gun legislators in the country -- one who completely supports Nancy Pelosi's agenda. Of course, Democrats are not just going to settle for a mere Representative in Congress... they want statehood for the District of Columbia in order to get two anti-gun Senators, as well.

It seems that the Obama-Reid-Pelosi strategy is to continue screwing the country -- even if it hurts them in the polls -- because then they will work to get as many "new" votes as possible through Puerto Rican statehood... DC statehood... and even things like amnesty for illegal aliens.

But if Pelosi were to succeed in making DC a state, there will be two more liberal votes in the Senate -- a situation that would allow them to break any Republican filibuster that would stymie their anti-gun agenda.

The Senate passed S. 160 last year, and if it were not for Gun Owners of America and Senator John Ensign, it would have been signed into law last spring.

Pro-gun Senator John Ensign and Gun Owners of America worked together to attach an amendment to the DC Vote Grab Act

. The amendment would repeal all the restrictive gun control laws still on the books in DC after the landmark D.C. v. Heller Supreme Court decision. The vote margin was an amazing 62-36 in the Senate!

Wiping out DC's still very restrictive anti-gun laws was not what Speaker Pelosi and other rabid anti-Second Amendment members of the House wanted to see.

Because of this GOA-supported amendment, the House has been unable to take any action on the Senate measure. While Speaker Pelosi has no desire to see a pro-gun provision within the DC bill, many House members are afraid to vote for any such bill that doesn't contain the pro-gun Ensign amendment. In short, this has been a real Mexican standoff that has lasted for nearly a year.

In fact, when Pelosi tried to bring up the bill last week, she could not muster enough votes to secure passage. S. 160 might now be dead for the year, but GOA will continue watching this and alert you to any attempts to bring up the bill again.

Senate "disses" America's veterans

For several years, GOA has been alerting gun owners to the travesty of justice that has been perpetrated on our veterans.

After the Brady law went into effect, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) began sending the names of many of its beneficiaries to the FBI so they could be added to the NICS list, denying these individuals their right to purchase a firearm. To date, more than 150,000 military veterans have been denied.

However, none of these veterans were ever convicted of a crime; none were found to be a danger to anyone; and none were afforded any meaningful due process of law. Under the semblance of being "mental defectives," these veterans were added to the list strictly because a doctor or a bureaucrat in the VA appointed someone to manage their finances.

The al-Qaeda terrorists in Guantanamo have been given more due process than the American soldiers who fought them!

To combat this outrage, pro-gun Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) authored S. 669, the Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act, that will safeguard for veterans two of the most fundamental Constitutional rights enjoyed by Americans: due process of law and the right to keep and bear arms.

The Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act merely stipulates that a veteran cannot lose his or her gun rights "without the order or finding of a judge, magistrate, or other judicial authority of competent jurisdiction that such person is a danger to himself or herself or others."

This very reasonable bill passed out of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee last June, having been approved unanimously.

Burr's language was offered on the floor of the Senate during the health care debate, but unfortunately, it was defeated 53-45. To see how your Senator voted, go to:
http://tinyurl.com/2ufvgu4

GOA will continue fighting for the passage of this very important legislation.

Where we are at

As you know, elections have consequences. GOA is fighting in the trenches to protect/regain our rights. And, thankfully, we have won a couple of major battles at the federal level -- like securing the ability to transport firearms on Amtrak trains and carry loaded guns in National Parks.

In the states, GOA has been successfully pushing Firearms Freedom Acts around the country -- laws which allow guns that are made in their home states, and stay in those states, to be free of federal regulation. (Currently, there are seven states that have enacted such laws; several others are still in the process.)

GOA also worked in Arizona to pass a new Alaska-style carry law which allows citizens to carry concealed firearms without first getting permission from the government.
___________________________________________________________________

Larry Pratt recently appeared on MSNBC's Hardball, hosted by Chris Matthews. The interview was, well, interesting to say the least. Just click on the top video at http://gunowners.org.

We have also lost some battles, as would be expected in a climate that is overwhelmingly controlled by liberals in Washington.

So we need your help. We can win the battles that are facing us, but only if we each give our maximum effort. Thank you for your continued support for our work. Even if you can only a give a couple of dollars, every little bit counts.

Obama Number One in Wind Power

That smell in Mo wasn't the output from the biodiesel plant that Obama visited today. No it was the foul stench of rhetoric by an administration that has proved themselves to be full of wind power.

After the Health Care control Bill, Obama has begun his journey of converting this nation into socialism. Next on his agenda?

Well, the regulation of the financial sector that caused the housing bubble. Never mind the fact that it was the regulations that forced banks to allow those who could not afford to purchase a home to get a home mortgage.

Other issues on his agenda, Immigration Reform. Now, I dont agree with Arizona's decision to become a "Show me you Papers" state, but I dont live there, and I most certainly do not have to go visit there any time soon. However, it is their right as a state to do as they will and up to the legal citizens of that state to deal with their legislators.

There will be no immigration reform. They will call it whatever they want, but we know it will be nothing more than AMNESTY. Hey, why not give amnesty to all lawbreakers who are just trying to make better lives for themselves?

Obama's other agenda's, too many to go over them all, but Cap & Trade, also known as Cap & Tax, Cap & Slave or energy regulations.

Genius idea, put the whole nation on a smart grid that has no viable protection against hackers. Some schoolboy in Asia or Russia will be able to shut the nation down while playing online games.

Now, if Obama wanted to do something besides smile and let out a lot of hot meaningless air, perhaps, he could get congress to lift the ban on growing hemp. Hemp is not a drug, but it is related to marijuana. It does produce far more biodiesel per pound than any other plant and it burns much cleaner and it grows in the most harshest of conditions.

The American people are tired of having a leader who is number one in wind power, they want a leader who will protect and defend the Constitution, they want a leader who will protect their liberties, they want a leader who can do more than smile pretty for the camera/

We will have to wait until 2012 for that issue to be resolved, unless of course someone comes up with the real obama birth certificate, in the meantime, we have the 2010 election that have the likes of many Socialist democrats already checking out the help wanted sections of their newspapers.

Don't be boiled in the VAT

Quote of the Day: "Nothing is official, until it has first been denied." -- Jerry Hughes, radio talk show host, and a friend of Downsize DC

You probably have a fundamental disagreement with the politicians who represent you . . .

* They think your money is their money, and they determine what your "allowance" will be
* You probably think that you are not a slave, and that you work to fulfill your own dreams, not theirs

Consider -- If you had a choice, would you rather give your money to . . .

* The Department of Housing and Urban Development, or Habitat for Humanity?
* The Department of the Interior, or groups like the Nature Conservancy and Ducks Unlimited?
* The Department of Education, or a local private school?
* The National Institute of Health (NIH), or St. Joseph's Hospital and the Shriner's Hospitals?

If you're like me, the NIH is the only bureaucracy that might spark a glimmer of interest. But I must wonder, if state-directed medical research is really such a great thing, why must it be funded at gun point?

Other State efforts provoke similar questions. And I can summarize my answers as follows . . .

There's nothing the federal government does that I value anywhere near as much as it costs. I would gladly choose a private, voluntary alternative for nearly every so-called "service" The State provides. I even think it screws up national defense, creating more enemies for me than it actually kills or constrains.

If I could fire my so-called government, I would. But I can't -- it's a monopoly protected by violence and intimidation, with the result that . . .

There doesn't seem to be any limit to how much of my money the know-it-all, busy-body politicians want to spend. They have no brakes. However . . .

Since the bond market does place a severe limit on how much money The State can borrow, there is more and more talk of raising taxes. In particular there's now a great deal of talk about a federal VAT.

VAT stands for Value Added Tax. A VAT is like a sales taxes except that the state and local sales taxes you're used to paying are only imposed at the final point of sale. By contrast . . .

A federal VAT is a sales tax imposed at EVERY STEP from production through distribution to final sale. In other words, the tax would be imposed at every point at which value is added to a product. That's why they call it a "value-added" tax.

We expect President Obama's current commission on the federal deficit to recommend a VAT. Now, the Obama administration has been quick to deny that it wants to impose a VAT, but we don't believe it. When politicians' move their lips, there's a considerable chance they're lying, and any denial is usually a prelude to confirmation. So you need to decide . . .

*
Do you want to pay more taxes, or do you want the politicians to cut spending?
* Are you going to tell them what you want, or will you sanction what happens by remaining silent?

Resistance is simple.I just sent a letter to Congress, using DowsizeDC.org's "cut spending" campaign.

You can copy or borrow from what I said in my letter . . .

You are spending too much, and borrowing too much. This must end. You must balance your books. And you must do it by cutting spending -- NOT by increasing taxes. Please pay special attention to the following -- NO Value Added Tax!

END LETTER

Remember, Congress cannot hear what you do NOT say.

You can send your own letter to Congress using DownsizeDC.org's Educate the Powerful System.

Please forward this Dispatch to others, and ask them to also send letters to Congress opposing a Value Added Tax.

What did you do to celebrate Patriots Day?

When you sit down and read about the long hard battles our founding fathers endured in order to allow us to live free, you cannot help but wonder was it all in vain.

The choices we make each and every day will lead us either down the road of destruction to a nation of socialism, then Communism and tyranny or it will be a road of sacrifice and struggle to return our nation back to the way it was intended to be and that is simply that all are able to live free.

Liberals will have you to think that because you celebrate patriots day that you are doing so because of what happened in Oklahoma City when in fact Patriots' Day is celebrated to honor those who fought in Battles of Lexington and Concord. This is where the phrase "The shot heard around the world," comes from.

Americans were tired of tyranny. They did all they could do in order to stop King George's oppression though discourse. Ultimately they had to make the heart wrenching choice to sacrifice themselves and all they had so that all who lived in the colonies could live free.

Today is Patriot's Day. Have you taken the opportunity to sacrifice some of your time and money? Perhaps a few months to speak to freinds, neighbors, family members about the issues and what is happening to our country? Were you able to help out a liberty minded candidate?

Today, we do not have to go to the extent of our forefathers to regain our liberties. We do need to have the same passion and zeal as they had and use it to find ways to defeat those who are in power and are abusing it. Both Democrats and Republicans should be scrutinized and voted out according to their performance.

We don't need to resort to violence to win our country back, what we do need is votes and candidates who will uphold their oath to office.

Freedom Loving Americans Amuse Obama, Freedom Loving Americans Amuse Obama? Ae we the King's Jesters?

Talk about pouring salt in an open wound, Obama has a way with words. The liberals are talking about how words can be hurtful, yet their exalted leader is not too careful with his words, nor are a majority of his smug senatorial and congressional lapdogs.

The American people are not amused about owning banks, auto manufacturing plants, loan institutions and being forced to pay for abortions, and be forced to accept government health care.

"He who laughs last, laughs best." Currently more than 20% of Americans support the tea party movement and nearly 59% are not happy with the way our legislators are doing their jobs.

November will remove the smirk off the amused liberal faces. November will reveal the true American spirit when Americans head to the polls.

So be amused, come 2012, your laughter will be forgotten once you are replaced with someone who will embrace the Will of the People waste stop the waste and incursion of our liberties.

A Move Back to Freedom & Liberty Does not Take a Tea Party

Face it, the Tea Party movement has been usurped by politicians and some "conservative" talk show hosts who really had nothing to do with it in the beginning.

As a matter of fact, Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck both called Ron Paul supporters nut cases and Glenn Beck went as far to refer to them as "terrorists."

Aside all this,true conservatives have come to believe that the GOP aka Republican Party is conservative party, but over and again, we have lots of examples where those in the Republican Party are far from conservative and the more legislation they push forward they look more liberal then some Democrats.

Go to a Tea Party and show your disdain against socialist policies of Obama and company, but when the GOP is in charge, be sure to protest any anti-conservative legislation they draw up as well.

Now if you really want to affect change, get involved in the grassroots efforts and push for candidates who not only talk the talk but walk the walk when it comes to all conservative issues.

Stop compromising and stay focused. Make your protest known by the candidate you support.

Once the GOP takes over in November, we expect them to start repealing any and all legislation that is unconstitutional. But will they do the right thing?

Can they regulate you to prosperity?

Notice the pattern . . .

* Politicians burden our economy with laws, regulations, taxes, and debt, but then . . .
* When the economy turns sour, it's never the fault of the laws, regulations, taxes, and debt, but instead . . .
* Always an excuse for more laws, regulations, taxes, and debt

The politicians tell us that an excess of government meddling was in NO WAY responsible for the Panic of 2008. They claim it all happened because we didn't have enough government involvement! Never mind the fact that . . .

* The Federal Reserve kept interest rates at artificially low levels for years
* The Democrats erected a host of programs and policies designed to expand home ownership
* The Republicans endorsed these efforts in the belief that an expanding "ownership society" would lead more people to vote Republican

The result? A huge housing bubble followed by a massive bust.

Now we're supposed to trust the same people who did all of the above, and who couldn't even regulate Bernie Madoff, despite having ample evidence of his crimes, to suddenly be able to regulate us to prosperity.

Are you really that big a sucker?

If you still believe the politicians can protect you, then get ready to be conned again . . .

The Senate is about to debate Chris Dodd's financial regulation bill. It's a whopping 1,136-pages!

Tell Congress you have a better idea. What we really need to do is end the Federal Reserve's power to blow bubbles. To make that happen . . .

Tell Congress to reject Dodd's cancerous bill, and instead pass Ron Paul's 3-page Free Competition in Currency Act.

You may borrow from or copy this letter . . .

The Free Competition in Currency Act is a much better alternative to Chris Dodd's financial regulation bill. Dodd's bill will make things worse . . .

* Its so-called "consumer protection" bureau will simply create regulations that conflict with regulations formulated by other agencies
* The bill "vastly expands the government's power to do arbitrary things -- like liquidate bank x but let bank y stand." http://www.csmonitor.com/Money/ThinkMarkets/2010/0319/Dodd-financial-reform-bill-goes-too-far
* Large banks "will be seen as safer to deal with since they will be deemed protected by the government. That will cause more individuals and companies to put their money with large banks, making the biggest banks even bigger." http://www.time.com/time/business/article/0,8599,1978531,00.html#ixzz0kWFpJfot
* The bill "will do nothing to put restrictions on two entities that were proximate causes of the housing bubble, the government-sponsored Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and instead hit Main Street businesses and entrepreneurial firms that had nothing to do with the crisis."
http://cei.org/articles/2010/03/16/dodd%E2%80%99s-main-street-punishment-bill
* And the bill will force prudent firms to pay into a $50 billion bailout fund to subsidize the risky behavior of irresponsible firms http://cei.org/articles/2010/03/16/dodd%E2%80%99s-main-street-punishment-bill

Creating new armies of regulators who will write thousands of pages of new regulations will only make it harder to do business in America. This may be what you want, because it will make politicians more important and powerful, but it isn't what we need.

Moreover, Dodd's bill doesn't get to the heart of the problem, which is the boom-and-bust cycle the Federal Reserve creates when it expands and contracts the money supply.

We can end the boom-and-bust cycle, and achieve greater openness and transparency, with LESS regulation, not more. The Free Competition in Currency Act achieves this by allowing individuals to "opt out" of bad Federal Reserve policies. Here's how:

* Legal tender laws will be repealed. Individuals will be free to use mutually-agreed-to forms of money, not just Federal Reserve Notes (dollars)
* Gold, silver, or other forms of money the people may want, will compete with the Fed's dollars on an equal footing
* Because no-one can inflate metal-backed money, their long-term value is more stable than the Fed's dollars, which have lost 95% of their value since the Fed was created in 1913
* In order to compete, the Fed will have to stop inflating their dollars, and banks in the Federal Reserve System will be forced to be open and transparent in order to attract skeptical depositors
* This means the boom-and-bust cycle will end and banks will become more reliable

Let's create REAL reform and transparency in our markets. Oppose Dodd's financial regulation bill and pass the Free Competition in Currency Act instead.
