With such a close election at hand, the public is energized now to speak up. Would it not be nice if this always was the case? I look forward to reading your next post on the topic.

I too believe we’ve gone much too far in the way of deregulation. I participated in the Carnival of Real Estate again this week with some thoughts on a different blog, but it looks as though the Senate is going to take up the slack today, since the House failed to adequately protect the interests of our Wall Street Overlords on Monday.

The fact that the vote was killed on Monday and that it was mostly voted against by Representatives who were in hotly contested races shows that enough grassroots activism actually does work. Where I think we fail as a society is not that we can’t exercise our voice, but that, too often, we don’t.
