People, this is the blue print for how democracy will be stolen from you. The same as Greece and other countries. They will state you are broke and litterally put democracy into recievership. Its totally disgusting, but unfortunately because not enough people give a damn this is what is going to happen across the board IMO.

We know the banks committed massive fraud and now the authorities have been signed over to a corporate facist dictatorship. Welcome to corporate law, we can expect corp punishment for doing nothing

If unregulated rehypothication and derivative fraud by the banks is not bad enough now we are paying for that fraud committed by the bankers by losing our freedom to choose.

CENTRAL FALLS, R.I. (AP) — When the state stepped in to take over financially struggling Central Falls in 2010, Rhode Island's smallest city lost something fundamental: its democratic government.

Mayor Charles Moreau would be forced to give back his key to City Hall, and the City Council was relegated to advisory status — unsure for months whether it was even allowed to convene.

"They're being governed without elected representation," state Sen. Elizabeth Crowley said of Central Falls' 19,000 residents. "That flies in the face of the democratic principle that our country is founded on, not only our little city. Maybe we should have a tea party and dump some tea in the Blackstone" River.
