s kaplan gave the following reason for signing this petition:
"Protect the people who voted and require the corporations that spend millions on lobbying and bribing politicians to follow PEOPLES rules that ensure a sound financial system.
Currently we have a system that drains the money from the people so that banks (bankster gangsters) and corporations can gamble and spend the taxpayers money so that they can amass ridiculous bonuses and CEO pay among other scandals.
The Glass Steagall Act needs to be reinstated.
Finally, Congress can not delegate money creation to the Federal Reserve which is an independent international banking cartel. The US Constitution requires the US government to create the money.
US President Andrew Jackson was the last president who was able to "END the FEDERAL RESERVE piracy" during his presidential term. "
1682 other people have also signed the following message:
Section 619 of the Dodd-Frank Act ("Volcker Rule") gave you specific guidance to write a rule that places strict limits on proprietary trading and ownership of hedge funds/private equity funds by banks. Unfortunately, your proposed implementation of the Volcker Rule creates a number of loopholes that can be exploited by banks.
We ask that you close down those loopholes and be faithful to the elected leaders of this Nation and the guidance they gave you in the form of Dodd-Frank Section 619. Further, between now and July 21st, 2012, the banking industry will send its loyal army of lawyers to lobby you to try to dilute your current draft of the Volcker Rule.
I join Occupy the SEC in requesting that you faithfully and strongly implement Congress's intent when you draft the final version of the Volcker Rule.
Please stand up to the banking lobby and protect the people, and not the banks.Sincerely,
