I believe in open markets assuming all things are fair, however, in reality there is greed and manipulation abound. It is under these circumstances that I expect my government to be involved and ensure the general public is protected.

To this day it still amazes me how individual leaders can allow good solid process control to be destroyed. I respectfully request that you reinstitute the necessary controls on short selling before it completely ruins our market confidence and stability.

We have suffered too much already and time is of the essence.

Thank You,
