Move Your Money – Vote with your Feet

November 5th is Move Your Money Day

We have seen what happens when consumers vote with their money. Since we are no longer represented by our government, we have a moral obligation to lobby for ourselves.

Netflix’s lost over 800,000 + customers, and now the banks are backing down from charging for using debit cards.

Why You Should Move Your Money?

  • Invest in main street, not wall street
  • End too big to fail
  • Fewer fees, more savings
  • Get more personal service
  • Lend a hand to local businesses

It’s time for us to participate in some non-violent social action – vote with our pocket books. We need to find ways to become our own lobbyists.  The too big to fail banks take our bailouts, our deposit money and use them to buy  lobbyists and politicians to de-regulate,  and give them immunity from prosecution for their crimes. Then they turn around charge more fees to make themselves richer. They get interest free loans and tax payer bailouts. Its time to stop being The Bank of American Taxpayers.

Take your money out and put it in a local community bank, the ones that stayed in business because they acted like banks, and not thieves.

If you have an account at a BANK, go move it to a CREDIT UNION.

You know, a place that you own and is a mutual association of people?

Yes.  One that you own.  Where the fees assessed go to provide services to…. you, not to feather the nests of bank executives and stockholders.   This link will take you to the data base that provides information about credit unions in your area:

The Move Your Money project is a nonprofit campaign that encourages individuals and institutions to divest from the nation’s largest Wall Street banks and move to local financial institutions.
