Capitalizing on Capitalism

Capitalism has been blamed by worthless people rich in power and other peoples' money.

True capitalism earns money.  
Jobs are created by capitalists. 
Workers earn a living from them. 
Bankers gather together workers savings and use this money to create more by usury. This is not capitalism, 
although they do capitalize on other peoples earnings
(and greed)
They also are "The Federal Reserve" 
(They run the money!!) Not congress (They passed it off)
Politicians have capitalized on their positions to such an extent that anyone elected to congress is set for life 
even if he is never re-elected.  
They made these rules.
They decided their salaries and benefits. 
They decided how much to tax us.
They created offices and positions of power, departments of "Government" 
At incredible costs to us all.
To the point that other governments in less free countries use their peoples' money to lend to us.

 We have been sold out.
The blame is being put on "Big Business" "Wall Street" and all those rich Capitalists

Our representatives, Your representatives have no alternative than to turn to Socialism in order to keep lining 
their pockets and living beyond their means.

It is too late to seek and elect real representatives.
They own (have bought) the majority of voters.
America has been stolen.

Me? just another sucker! But at least now you(the reader) know what you've lost
(Or stolen)
