BANKS DID NOT DO IT TO US. Banks did not do it to us. We did it to banks by over extending ourselves by buying homes we could not afford. By living beyond our means on credit card we could not make payments on. We did it to banks. Now we expect banks and the federal government to bail us out. Big plus blame is our jobs left the country, left us jobless without income to make mortgage and credit card payments and to support businesses with buying power and leaving them bankrupt and more Americans jobless. Banks, big businesses and wall street did not do it to us. We did it to our selves with the help of our government and illegal immigration also. How many illegal aliens defaulted on their mortgages when they lost their jobs and mortgage loans they never should have had in the first place. Now that the goings got bad, they have gone back to Mexico. Living large is the blame. We living large and businesses living large on cheap illegal labor. We need to get back to basics. Smaller and less government involvement will mean smaller and less government for us. So it that is what we want, we had better get use to it because the right it going in that direction full speed.
