Between 2006-2012 (so far) the Finance, Insurance, and Real Estate (F.I.R.E.) sector has invested a total of $4.2 billion in political power and influence including:

    • $829 million in congressional campaign contributions
    • $181 million in presidential campaign contributions
    • $2.8 billion in lobbying with over 18,400 lobbyists
  • Wall Street has spent $1,331 dollars per minute, every minute since 2006, to gain political influence.
  • F.I.R.E. sector campaign contributions and heavy lobbying of both parties are used to foster industry-loyal voting practices in Congress.
  • An average of 74% Senate Finance Committee votes matched the F.I.R.E. industry lobby position for seven bills examined; the total Senate’s average ‘industry loyalty rate’ matched the F.I.R.E. lobby position 66% of the time for the same bills.
  • To ‘put out the F.I.R.E.’ voters must expose and challenge the toxic campaign money from Wall Street that is putting corporate profits over the needs of a healthy democracy.

Make no mistake; these European Masters of the Universe hate democracy and protest like the plague. For them, Spaniards on strike are the equivalent of terrorists. The usual, shady, anonymous sources of the European banking lobby in Frankfurt will keep stressing, not so subtly, that national sovereignty is garbage; what matters is their diktat.

So the concept of "democracy", in Europe, is now a travesty; what matters is to install bankers as heads of state - as in Rome and Athens; impose a reactionary social and labour counter-revolution; and intervene at will to service the Lord, also known as "the market".  

And it gets worse; it won't work. As in Western corporate media spinning the same scratchy CD - "the new austerity plan hasn't won investors' confidence".
