(2) Looting the Treasury for Wall Street and corporate favorites.

(3) Bailing out criminal banks instead of nationalizing or closing them, and prosecuting their top officials for fraud and grand theft.

(4) Consigning millions of Americans to impoverishment without jobs, homes, savings, social services, or futures.

(5) Letting hunger, homelessness, and poverty fester while plundering the nation's resources illegally.

(6) Funding Israel's war machine, its crimes and overall lawlessness.

(12) Endorsing torture as official policy.

(15) Passing wealth and power-friendly legislation, harming millions, including the middle class, targeted for destruction.
