Default Send a letter to you congressman to NOT support the bailout

I'm sick and tired of paying for everyone's mistakes.

Use a pre-written form:
http://www.votenobailout.org/

or find out your congressman:
https://forms.house.gov/wyr/welcome.shtml

and write one yourself, or use this one:

"Congressman,

I rarely write my representatives but I fear that we are going to ram bailouts through the political process without using one bit of logical reason. You’ve most likely been told to sign on the dotted line and accept this proposed $700 billion bailout by the same men that have put our great country into this horrible economic situation.

The true dollar amount of the bailout is enormous. These bailouts grow by the day and even now it is impossible to tell how large the final cost to us taxpayers will be. The total financial obligations could easily be over 4 trillion dollars. And what is this for? To bail out the poorly managed financial institutions that made poor business decisions. These bailouts will just transfer the burden of these bad decisions from a small group of people to the entire American Public. This is not free market capitalism. It is Socialism!

I urge you Congressman to NOT vote for this proposed bailout. It will bring about an economic future for this nation that is exponentially worse than the one we would have without this proposed bailout by destroying the value of our currency.

Thank you for your time."

i'm not sure our economy could handle all these financial institutions closing their doors. For me the bailout is a necessary evil. It keeps businesses open and lets people have their jobs.

"Congress has no right to give the White House and its Secretary of the Treasury the power to transfer the people's money to the richest bankers in the country."



hgahahahahahhahhahahahhahaahhahahahahahahhahahahah ah

that is the most idiotic website i've came across in a while.

I'm sick of engaging in conversations with people who are so out of touch with what is really happening in current events that I'm going to just stop visiting threads like this.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. That's the fear they are feeding us with no guarantee that they are just postponing the inevitable recession.

Greenspan was good at moving the economy from one bubble to another, not it's time to pay for it, and why am I the one that has to? Instead of the people that created this mess?

keep reiterating the thoughts of the democratic party who wish you would pull your money out of the markets, and wish you would become more enslaved to big government.

I just watched john adam's on tv talking about signing the declaration of independence, and it gave me hope.

Section 8:
Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency.

So what part of that is hard for you to understand???

Thankfully my congressperson was just on the radio and I won't need to send a letter based on what she said.

I'm all for a bailout as long as all of the idiots in charge who didn't see this coming are charged with a capital crime. How's that for accountability?

What is so bad about the government investing our money into buying bank notes? I seriously think they could turn a huge profit. Hell, even Warren Buffet announced today he is dumping $5,000,000,000.00 of his own money into goldman sachs today.
