As in the song "Lawyers In Love" we have a land, a nation with too many in high places willing to do anything for money neglecting people, honor and principle but a change is coming. No more falling for the lie of living only individualistic and independent lives leaving us divided and conquerable by powerful special interests but a people, a nation collaborating for the greater common good in various groups all across the nation. A land of people working together to help one another with a vision moreover as Jesus would have us be. Love, Mercy, Forgiveness, Kindness....something about another Land. The change is coming

Financial Reform Exposes True Rightwing - Take A Good Hard Look America!

The Rightwing, Republicans and their faux independent party called the "tea party", pretending to represent middle America, can barely bring themselves to utter words supporting bank regulations but they know they have to for the cameras so the American people will think they are on their side in the wave to the upcoming election but if it were not for that they would openly express disdain for it as they fight tooth and nail straining at a knat to oppose regulations on Wall Street.
Right now is a touchy and embarrassing time for these right wing groups because they risk having their hearts "cut out" by media spotlight and shown to all exposing them for what they are as servants of themselves,the wealthy and Wall Street. They didn't like the banks having to fork money into a fund as a disincentive for bad behaviour so they came out pathetically pretending the bailout fund would cause more bailouts but the Republicans, so under the power of Wall Street, would rather see you foot the whole bill for a bank too big to fail rather than the banks contribute to a fund to pay part of it. You see one way or another there will be another bank failure and the banks do not want to pay for any of it. If the banks know they will have to keep maintaining a 50 billion fund for bank failures then they will be less likely to take big risks with your money but as long as they have no responsiblity for it they can do as they wish and that is what the Republicans are trying to give them, no accountability and no responsiblity.

When the Republicans met behind closed doors with the Wall Street bankers they got their marching orders to essentially try and perpetuate the same ideology that gave us our economic catastrophe and to such an extent that the Republicans came out making a desperate false claim that the bailout fund, which the banks will have to pay into, would cause more bailouts while the reality is the fund is actually a liquidation fund, all this showing they will do anything to serve Wall Street,LOL. The truth is if the banks have to pay for some or all of future bank liquidations then they the banks will have strong motivation to avoid any failures therefore resulting in less risk taking with your money and your economy.
The rightwing is so full of it and what they are trying to do is serve Wall Street by keeping financial institutions free of responsibility for bank failures and behavior free of real disciplinary regulations. And it is not that the Republicans are just that stupid but it is what you get when you sell yourself off to Wall Street and it's lockstep for money mentality. If the Republicans were now in control of congress this is what you would be getting, no real regulation, no real punishment for Wall Street and most of all no real consideration for all the people that have had to suffer at the hands of Wall Street corruption.

An ideology can hide the real motives in reckless servitude for only so long. God said you can serve Him or you can serve money but you cannot serve both and so with that in mind just who do you think Bush and the rightwing were serving leading into the economic collapse?
Take a good hard look America and see who the rightwing and the Republicans are truly working for and have been working for.
