There is a lot wrong in America, and we hear a lot about corporate corruption and influence in government, but what many are not aware of is just how important it is to stop members of Congress from being allowed to own and trade stocks in these mega corporations.
They are financially influenced by their investments when voting to pass laws, budgets, food and drug approvals that affect American citizens, award contracts, etc.... How do you think we ended up not only with Genetically Modified foods, but food disparagement laws that they cannot be labeled or "discriminated" against. Why do we go to war so often? Because war is a money maker for the big corporations that blow things up and rebuild them.
We are hearing more and more about corporations and insider trading, and many watery bills are sprouting and making headlines. The proposed STOCK ACT is NOT strong enough. Do not let Officials, our legislative lawmakers continue to monitor themselves. Demand RROOTS Real Restrictions On Officials Trading Stocks. Divest or Resign.
No More corporate influence in Congress. They know it's wrong, they know what they've done, now let's stop them, No Other Bill will accomplish as much or solve as many of America's problems as this would.
In America politicians beat the hedge fund managers in the stock market by trading on non-public information gained while performing their public duties. American politicians don't have to divest when they assume federal office, they trade freely while in office. Multiple Studies indicate strongly that U.S. Senators trade common stock with a substantial informational advantage compared to ordinary investors and even corporate insiders.
These elected officials approve budget expenditures and spend millions and billions of taxpayer dollars paying for the research these corporations need to hawk their wares with blessing.
These same elected officials that fund the supporting research for these corporations to develop these products, which of course includes a lot of contracts and secret military spending, also arrange and sign the contracts securing services and goods.
These same elected officials then pass the laws, legislation and approvals allowing the citizens of America to be exposed to questionable vaccines, chip implants, Genetically modified foods, aspartame and Hfs and Human Growth hormones, and chemtrailing, etc etc..... Haven't you ever asked yourself WHY are we even developing half of these things? Do we want them? Google stupid government funded studies and see where your tax dollars go..and then ask why.
These legislators then pass laws Protecting these corporations and their questionable products and practices, for example Food Disparagement Laws that prohibit saying GE foods or foods with Human Growth Hormones added, or high fructose sugar are any different from any other food. This past decade has seen more spending and more top secret blocking of access to information regarding the spending.
Why? Why do they do it? Because they make millions on Wall St. The American people, the Sherman Anti Trust, the injustice all around...none are as important as these companies too big to fail and their shareholders. How do they do it? Because they have all worked together for decades. These same elected officials are now trying to tell us We Do Not Even Have A Right to Protest.
Time to Evict Wall st. From Our White House Just like they are evicting Occupy protesters
That is why we demand No Member of our House or Senate can own stocks and no member of our House and Senate can serve more than one term.

We the 99% People of the United States of America DEMAND TO BE HEARD< Now is the time ..do we say YES we want GM foods? YES We want to go to war? YES we want tax breaks and loopholes for corps?
