We American's are sick and tired of the greed that has infiltrated wall street and big business.
Regular folks like you and me need to fight back by speaking up !
When we don't speak up, special interest groups come in and take over. There are some major changes coming very soon down the road that will change your life. Whether its for good or bad will depend on how much you get involved. I have made a list of websites that you can click on to keep track of how your government is changing your life.
