CREDO helps you tell your Congressfolk to support an aggressive sales tax on Wall Street stock trades. Why? Because it would raise a lot of money -- until that point at which it fulfills its real purpose, to restrain lightning-fast computerized stock trading that adds nothing of value to the economy but which now makes up most stock trades. Trading in ever-more convoluted derivative products doesn't do as much for the economy as, you know, making stuff, selling stuff, and saving money. But though that may be obvious to you and I, banksters act like it's not, and pretend that a Wall Street sales tax (or financial transaction tax, or Robin Hood tax, take your pick) would somehow injure Mom-and-Pop stores and small businesses -- as if they're the ones creating all these hifalutin financial "instruments"! Of course, they don't really mean you'll injure them -- they mean they'll injure them, if they don't get their way. Remember when you were a kid, and acting like a spoiled brat got you shamed and put in the corner? Banksters have apparently never experienced such things. I guess it's up to us to teach them, then.
Meanwhile, if you've missed previous opportunities to tell the House and Senate Judiciary Committees to investigate alleged attempts by the FBI and the DHS to intimidate peaceful protestors and activists, then Roots Action still helps you do that. Maybe it doesn't matter to these committees if the FBI has conducted "counterterrorism" surveillance on Occupy protestors or planted informants among Keystone XL pipeline protestors or compiled social media posts of Black Lives Matter protestors -- maybe they're all just "dirty hippies" (or worse!) to our Congressfolk. But you no doubt recall how our Congressfolk overreacted to reports of the IRS collecting information on Tea Party groups? This, when the Tea Party is a corporate-grown "protest" movement! Of course, corporate sponsorship explains Congress's priorities in most cases, but no matter -- our Congress has a duty to rein in the excesses of federal law enforcement officials, who will very likely never find a "terrorist" in any of these movements unless they make one themselves. And I'm sure that's come up in official meetings at the FBI and the DHS.
