Glass-Steagall -lain uudelleen pystyttämisen sponsoroijat ja tukijat Yhdysvalloissa: Lokakuun 2011 tilanne

LaRouche -liike (LaRouche PAC) on jälleen koonnut yhteen Glass-Steagall -lain uudelleen voimaansaattamista kannattavat tahot. Viimeksi tämä tapahtui elokuussa, jolloin kirjasin silloiset kannattajat ylös blogiini lainauksena (Glass-Steagall -lain uudelleen pystyttämisen sponsoroijat ja tukijat Yhdysvalloissa: Elokuun 2011 tilanne). Kannattajia on tullut sen jälkeen paljon lisää ja tällä kertaa mukana on Yhdysvalloissa olevien kannattajien lisäksi runsaasti myös muissa maissa tapahtunutta kannattamista (Tässä erikseen juttu Tanskan Occupy Wall Street -liikkeen uutisoinnin yhteydessä tapahtuneesta promotoinnista; Glass-Steagall Higlighted From Occupy Denmark Demonstration).

Tästä aineistosta huomaamme, kuinka Ruotsi on Suomea edellä tässäkin asiassa. Eipä taida täällä olla muita ko. lain kannattajia julkisesti kuin minä... Joka tapauksessa lainaan kokonaisuudessaan alle tämän uusimman kannatuskoosteen, jonka on tehnyt Michelle Fuchs. Viime kerran lainauksessanihan kävin poimimassa jokaisen USA:n kongressiedustajan wikipediasta löytyneet henkilökuvat lainattuun tekstiin, mutta tällä kertaa jätän ko. artikkeleiden etsimisen teidän kiinnostuksen mukaiseen huomaan ja monihan on jo valmiiksi löydettävissä tuosta edellisesta koostelainauksestani. Nyt muuten on huomattavissa se, kuinka demokraattien lisäksi on alkanut tulemaan lain kannatusta myös republikaanien puolelta, vaikkakin vasta vähän.
