Endorse the Glass Steagall Act! (Letter to sign/email)

Let Us Hold President Donald Trump to his word: 
Endorse the Glass Steagall Act in Your State of the Union address!

Here in Northwest Ohio we are taking a positive approach to the New Year. Our Revolution of Northwest Ohio is calling upon President Donald Trump to make good on your campaign promise: Endorse the Glass-Steagall Act in your State of the Union Address! 

This simple action has several powerful effects: it initiates a positive action; brings varying groups together to build a coalition with a common purpose; will be synchronized with Congressional legislation and inform lobbying on Capitol Hill; be the basis for press conferences and public actions. Letters will be personally hand-carried to members of Congress and official representatives of President Trump.

How to circulate and return:
1. Feel free to take this printed letter to friends, groups, and citizens.
2. Post on websites, Facebook and other electronic media.
3. Collect signatures on paper and electronically.
4. Secure endorsements of organizations; any and all----Our Revolution, Tea Party, Republicans, Democrats, Labor and Business.
(If your group would like to modify this letter to personalize it, that is fine, provided you maintain the spirit of the letter)

4. Please Send Your Letters Back! All letters, electronic and paper must be turned in by January 18, 2017, ahead of the inauguration.

Open letter to President Donald Trump:                                           
Make good on your campaign statement to support the Glass-Steagall Act!

We the undersigned strongly feel the need for protecting our economy from another unnecessary market crash and recession like the one experienced in December of 2007.  As you take office, the conditions for a collapse are too similar to those of 2007: rising asset values together with a lack of separation between FDIC insured banking and risk-investment brokering. 

We applaud your campaign statement in Charlotte, North Carolina, October 26, 2016, endorsing a call for "A 21st Century version of Glass-Steagall," and reintroducing a modern day Glass-Steagall Act.  We trust that you understand that stabilizing the business climate and securing the assets as separate from Wall Street speculation is a key to prosperity during your administration.

To set the tone of discourse in Congress 2017, we ask that you restate your support for a Glass-Steagall Act during your State of the Union address.

Be assured in doing so, you will find common ground with both the Republicans and the Democrats since both party platforms have the support of banking legislation that separates insured accounts from Wall Street speculation in their respective platforms. 

Thank you for responding to the call from citizens, businesspersons, bankers and legislators as we move forward. 

Sincerely Yours,

  1. Congratulations on Glass Steagall Petition. This coheres with the AMERICAN SYSTEM as conceived by Henry Clay in 1833 and implemented by Abraham Lincoln in 1861.

  2. Glass Steagall principle is proven (by its 40+ year success) as just the absolutely necessary first step to mobilizing investment capital to productivity and tangible wealth creation, instead of draining that capital into the speculative swamp -- Hamilton and FDR clearly got the most important stuff right.

  3. Agreed! The Glass-Steagall Act has done good and not harm for ALL Americans, and it's particularly good for working Americans. It's time it was brought back and strengthened so it can't be taken away from us ever again by the 1%.
