CALL TO ACTION: Victory Party at Goldman Sachs
The System isn’t broken – it’s fixed!
Every four years, billions of dollars are spent convincing Americans that we all have a choice in our leadership. Endlessly repeating political ads and staged debates insist your $5 contribution is just as powerful as Goldman Sachs’ millions in contributions to both sides. Do you really believe this? People who contributed $5 are now living on the streets because of foreclosure, while those who contributed millions are better off than ever.
Goldman Sachs, Citibank, and JPMorgan played starring roles in the financial collapse of 2008. Yet Congress and the President bailed them out. They still receive cash infusions from the Federal Reserve to cover future losses on their “investments.” The $5 donation crowd pays for this through taxes and the debasement of the dollar. Since 2008, investment banks broke disclosure laws, manipulated the rates that are the foundation of all financial interactions, laundered money from drug lords, promoted anti-US terrorism by ignoring financial embargoes… the list just goes on and on and on. But not one of these banksters has been indicted or gone to jail. From the cop on the beat to our President, our government has been purchased by the ultra-rich, who hold the reins of power.
Every four years these faux rulers like to throw themselves a victory party. We’re not invited. But this time things are going to be different. On Election Eve at 7PM, Occupy Wall Street is going to be standing in front of Goldman Sachs and telling it like it is: whoever wins, we the people lose. Why not join us at the Occupy mocktail party? It will be fun. Formal dress encouraged. Refreshments will be provided.
