Nearly 233 years ago, our forefathers risked their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to fight an egregious wrong: Taxation without representation.
Nearly everything we have — everything we enjoy as Americans — can be traced back to the moment in time when the founding fathers chose to risk everything for that cause.
Today, a new generation of Americans is rising up to oppose another wrong: The plundering of America’s families and the sacrifice of our children’s future on the altar of corporate survival.
For many years, the millionaires and billionaires who run America’s banks, brokerages, insurers and car companies seduced millions of consumers into piling up unpayable debts and then invested their ill-gotten gains in risky, even insane investments.
Now, these companies are paying the piper — or rather, demanding that Washington force YOU to pay the piper for them.
By borrowing or printing trillions of dollars in a vain attempt to save these failed companies, our leaders in Washington are ensuring that YOU will ultimately repay in higher taxes and interest rates — not just during our lifetimes, but for generations to come.
Day by day, as we watch the financial future of middle-class families plundered to pay for these companies’ five-star company junkets and their executives’ million-dollar bonuses, a second American Revolution is being born.
This time, though, we will not be asked to take up arms or suffer the bitter cold of a Valley Forge … or even to leave the comfort of our own homes. Because this war will be fought not with bullets, but with the combined power of millions of voices demanding that Washington STOP this terrible injustice before it bankrupts our country.
At last Tuesday’s national press briefing, I fired the first shot in my personal campaign to stop this insanity before it’s too late.
I sought to help thousands of investors protect their incomes, homes, savings, investments and retirement as this crisis continues to intensify …
And I also announced the launch of a massive, national grassroots movement to STOP Washington’s insane bailouts of bankers, brokers and insurers with OUR MONEY.
Exactly 24 hours from now, in my regular Monday Money and Markets edition, I will make an announcement that I believe will shake the very foundations of Washington — the details of an unprecedented campaign to …
1. Help everyday Americans protect their incomes, homes, savings, investments and retirements while there’s still time …
2. Help family members, friends and neighbors get through this great crisis in comfort and safety …
3. Send a clear, powerful message to Congress and the White House — to convince them to STOP throwing good money after bad, and …
4. Help the most innocent victims of this crisis.
A lot is riding on the success of this campaign. To the degree that we can be successful, I believe this depression can be shorter than it would become otherwise. To the degree that we fail, it could condemn our country to many years — probably a decade or more — of destitution, dependence and desperation.
But I can’t do this alone. The only way we can succeed is with your help. I need you to stand with me.
So watch your inbox at this time tomorrow for the single most important announcement my company has ever made. And join me in my fight to help save our families, our future and our nation before it’s too late.
Good luck and God bless!
