The banksters were defeated in the House yesterday on account of the will of the people, who inundated their representatives with calls demanding a “no” to the bank bailout. It’s time to make more calls and send more letters, this time in particular to the Senate.
Tomorrow the rich elite will brazenly circumvent the decision of the House and attempt to get the Senate to pass their bill. This is like a child who doesn’t get his way with Mommy and tries running to Daddy, except that it’s so much more serious.
Below is the letter I sent tonight to my Senators. Feel free to copy it and to send it to your own Senator. Phone calls are even more effective. I plan to call both my senators in the morning.
If enough of us do this, we will again bring down this bill. We are making history, folks! To get the phone number and e-mail address of your Senator, click here.
My letter to the Senators:
Dear Senator So-and-So:
It is imperative that you reject this tricky new move by the banksters to pass their bailout bill by going around the decision of the House, in direct and opposition to the will of the American people. This brazen and tyrannical move, by the elite who wish to control both the top levels of finance and government, is proof that we are closer to a police state than we think.
Whatever happened to that rule we learned in grade school civics, that if a bill is rejected by the body of Congress it starts in, it is defeated? Why can these banksters and their friends in high government twist the rules of our country, to serve their greedy purposes? What kind of republic is that? Or shall we call it dictatorship?
Their attempt to doctor the bill by tacking a puny tax cut onto it is like a swindler attempting to get a man to sign over the ownership of his home by offering him a cherry lollipop. The American people demand accountability, not lollipops. Let the banksters take their medicine and go bankrupt. The market will recover, as the 166 expert economists who signed a letter to Congress all attested.
Take a stand on the side of the people tomorrow, Senator. History is in the making, and you have the chance as never before to make a difference. Do the right thing, and you will be elected in again proudly by your constituents. Vote for the elite tomorrow, and you will lose much more than your career in government. You will lose your freedom to live in a republic where the will of the people determines the law of the land.
