We have a major industry, banking, controlled by an oligopoly of big banks. This oligopoly, along with others, control our representitives by campaign contributions. In other words our politicans are bought off. This will not change until the following:
- Anti-trust laws are enforced to make our "free markets" truly free.
- Our government becomes an honest umpire to see to it that every business in the marketplace is playing by the rules and not choking the free market.
- A law is passed outlawing contributions by corporations and unions. They cannot vote and therefore they should not be able to buy votes.
