1) The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 opened the door to the organized plunder of the citizens of the USA through the control of economic booms and busts by a few "insiders".
2) The repeal of the Banking Act of 1933 (Glass-Steagall Act) opened the door to the banking system being involved in bad mortgage practices, mortgage backed securities, and credit default swaps that led to the collapse in 2008.
3) The Dodd-Frank law does practically nothing to separate the banking system from the casino of wall street, mortgage backed securities, and credit default swaps.
4) Neither President Obama nor Mr. Romney have the desire or political power to correct the stated problems of the financial system.

The resolution is "WHOEVER" wins the Presidential election, the USA will continue to decline. As such, third parties are allowed. I hereby declare that if Gary Johnson wins the election, the USA will NOT decline.

1) Gary Johnson promised to AUDIT the Federal Reserve. http://www.garyjohnson2012.com...
2) There were numerous causes of the 2008 resession and it had nothing to do with the repeal of the G-S Act.
3) Johnson has a plan to balance the federal deficit, get us out of war, and to down size government.

Negated.

I completely agree with the background supporting this resolution! :)
Decline will most probably continue, but it may slow down and even improve over the next decade
