Goldman Sachs "An Enemy of the State"?
That is a very good question. In my previous post - The War On Wall Street", July 21, 2010, I made some pretty harsh statements about the nature of Goldman Sachs and its' affect on our nations as well as the people of nations around the world.
I have often maintained that any action by any company, individual or group of individuals, that has a mass negative affect on the people should be considered an enemy of the state. In fact, some actions taken by these individuals may even be considered treasonous. I believe that some high ranking government officials have commited treason but their actions, by virtue of who they are, are not dealt with as they would if it were you or I doing the same things.
So to is it with our TBTF (too big to fail) mega corporations. They too can commit crimes that greatly and negatively impact the population, yet, by virtue of who they are (how much money they have and control) little is said or done.
Recently Richard Eskow wrote an article in the Huffington Post -Wall Street "Justice": AIG Evidence Raises the Question, "Where Are the Indictments?"- wherein he also questions the lack of any criminal prosecutions in the face of very obvious criminal activity. By the way, Richard also mentions this site and quotes a statistic I gave in another of my posts. Thanks Richard, I am happy to see that you follow us.
We know we are fighting an "enemy" of terrorists who have attached us, our way of life and threaten our very existence. We call the biggest of these terror groups Al Quida but know that that are other factions and groups with the same goals against us as theirs.
But does an enemy of the state have to bear arms against us to be a danger to us? No, they do not. Those who would cause financial ruin to people, states, a nations and the world can and should be considered our "enemies". The banking cartel led by Goldman Sachs should fall into this category. They should be treated as enemies, held accountable for their crimes, be detained, tried in a court of law and sentenced to appropriate punishments if found guilty by a jury of their peers (that would be you and I not their fellow CEO's).
