"The elements are the deficit spending for the war of 3 to 4 trillion
dollars, the trillion and more tax cuts, the war itself and the lack of
serious investment in the country. We are being hollowed out. We are
going to see more unemployment and more people losing their homes. With
$700 billion we could have made a real investment in the country, in
jobs, in infrastructure and in homes. Instead, we got robbed." U.S. Rep.
"I believe that the American public has every right to rise up in anger
against (the Wall St. $700 billion bailout) and retire from office every
legislator who voted 'Yes; to its passage... This Act marks the
beginning of the end of the American Empire, in my opinion (along with
the Iraq debacle)... Americans are being held hostage by their
government. The government is rubbing sand in their faces and defying
them, both on Iraq and on its financial measures. The government is
overstepping its bounds so egregiously that it is arousing even passive
Americans to action. It is only a matter of time before they rise up and
cast off their bonds." -- Michael S. Rozeff, LewRockwell.com, Monday,

"The Paulson bailout saves his firm, Goldman Sachs. The Paulson bailout
transfers the troubled financial instruments that the financial sector
created from the books of the financial sector to the books of the
taxpayers at the US Treasury. This is all the bailout does. It rescues
the guilty. ... The same reckless leadership that gave us expensive wars
based on false premises has now concocted an expensive bailout that does
not address the problem, which will fester and become worse." -- Paul
Craig Roberts, CounterPunch, 10/6/08
"Both presidential candidates endorse the plan and voted for it. Most
party leaders as well. A bipartisan conspiracy to compound the fraud.
Reward criminals with public money. Empower the Treasury secretary as a
financial czar. With unlimited authority to dispense public money.
Direct it as he wishes. Stipulate the terms. Conceal the plan's true
purpose from the public. To save Wall Street and big banks. ... And make
ordinary people pay for it. ... The measure is solely to help banks...
Corporate giants rule America and the world as the dominant institution
of our time. Their influence is pervasive and profound. Over every facet
of our lives. ... In his 1961 farewell address, Eisenhower warned about
... 'the potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power....' ...
According to (economist John) Williams, America is already bankrupt...
... The culprit - unsustainable military spending." -- Steve Lendman,
