Arkansawyers Don't Have a Champion in Congress
For now at least, The Great Bank Robbery (where the banks try to use government to rob the taxpayers) has been foiled by Congress. Calls against the "bailout" were 300-1 against by one account. It was the special interests against the taxpayers, and with a monumental effort, the taxpayers won a single round. The majority of Congress voted against this criminal theft, but what about OUR congressmen?
Sell-outs, each and every one. Marion Berry, John Boozman, Vic Snyder, and Mike Ross all voted for the bailout. This bailout would pledge your future earnings to help pay back foreign banks (like those owned by the Chinese Communists) who were conned by our banks into buying bundles of the bogus loans our banks were making to illegal aliens (and others) under government pressure to do so.
This vote means that each and every one of our congressional delegation voted for foreign banks, our own Wall-Street High flyers, and even illegal aliens, over the interests of the people who elevated them to office.
In addition, both McCain and Obama supported this bailout, so there is no major party candidate who you can trust either. Increasingly, Americans have no where to go as the "leadership" of both parties tries to force the rank-and-file to sell us out to global interests. Thankfully, enough in Congress decided to serve their constituents instead of their "party leaders" that we were able to stop this particular robbery. Each and every congressman who voted against this scheme deserve our thanks and gratitude. Unfortunately, we in the Natural State don't seem to have any of those.
