As most of you have noticed, we are primarily focused on covering the economic coup. We strongly feel that the theft of Trillions of taxpayer dollars by a small group of men on Wall Street is the biggest story of our time. We understand that these are very difficult times for most people and there are many pressing and vitally important issues confronting us. However, the theft of Trillions of dollars has to be the lead story every day until there are investigations and prosecutions to resolve it.
Many of the news sites that we link to on a daily basis have been covering this issue. However, these sites are not covering the issue sufficiently. There should be blazing headlines on a daily basis: ECONOMIC COUP IN THE US! TRILLIONS OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS STOLEN!
Think about all the vital issues you care about and then think about the Trillions of dollars that were stolen. How could a small fraction of that money directly affect the issues you care about most? We need to make this connection, and we need to make the theft of Trillions of dollars THE LEAD ISSUE RIGHT NOW!
Just think about how much can be done with this stolen money. The highest quality universal healthcare could be provided to everyone in the US. Every foreclosed mortgage in the US can be paid off, for that matter, it would take a fraction of the stolen money to provide a free house to every family in the US. Thousands upon thousands of jobs can be created with the stolen money. Young people who are shackled with massive student debt can have their loans paid off and we can have free higher education for everyone, not to mention a drastically improved educational system. Think about the social programs across the board that could be funded to improve our societal functions and standards of living, if we could use the stolen tax money for what it was originally intended for.
This money could be used to help combat the environmental crisis. The bottom line is that people seem to be missing the point that this stolen money could be used to actually solve many of the serious issues we are confronted with. This is not a utopian dream, the resources are available, it could be a reality, if we had the stolen tax money.
In our last Economic Death Squad video, we featured Franklin D. Roosevelt talking about an Economic Bill of Rights, he never had a chance to implement them, but if we were to recoup the Trillions that have been stolen from us, we could turn FDR’s Economic Bill of Rights into a reality.
So here we are providing you with a roundup of our coverage on the issue. We are a small operation with limited resources, but we have created several reports and two short videos to help drive home the importance.
We will start by featuring two of our videos to get the ball rolling, with more in depth reports below. Please help spread information on this issue in any way possible.
