To the editor:
In your Saturday editorial, you make the claim that President Obama’s promise of change had turned into “more of a revolution.” Were it only true. If so, we would have captured the Treasury and the banking system from the thieves of Wall Street, instead of allowing them to double down to the tune of trillions of dollars on their speculative gamble on imaginary derivatives and credit swaps. We could have implemented universal health care, as the majority of people desire, instead of allowing the greedy insurance and pharmaceutical companies to continue reap obscene profits from our pain and suffering. And we could have brought our troops home from the adventurous protection of oil companies and the dying fossil fuel industry and used those resources to convert to an ecologically sustainable and peaceful economy.
