Just as the Patriot Act has done little to stop terrorism within the United States, so too has Dodd-Frank and bank bailouts not righted the ship following the 2008 credit crisis. But in each of these laws is the underlying truth that they have accomplished exactly what Congress intended them to do, and that is to put the screws on the rights and liberties of the American people.
For the Patriot Act, we now have 100% total surveillance without a court order, and the creation of a government agency (DHS) that labels honest Americans, not Islamic militants, as the number one threat to the country.
And with Dodd-Frank and the Fed’s use of Quantitative Easing (QE), the elites work in the financial real is nearly complete as a new report out shows that the disparity and wealth inequality between the 1% and the rest of America is now at the highest level in history.
Greater than during the Roaring 20’s, and the Gilded Age.
