Minnesotans – It is time to MOVE YOUR MONEY

Many of us wait for a time that is critical to do the right thing.

Well, Minnesota – the time is now, the critical mass has been reached.  It is time to move your money from Minnesota’s big banks and move your money to local banks and credit unions.

If your money is in a big bank in Minnesota- your money is now part of the problem.

You need to move your money to local banks and credit unions where the money will be used for community growth and support.

If your money is in the big banks of Minnesota – your money is being used to buy politicians to pass pro-corporate (banksters) legislation and to fund initiatives which destroy our democracy and destroy representation of, by and for the people.

The time is now for Minnesotans.

An example of this is Wells Fargo executive vice president Jon Campbell chairing the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce, the state’s top lobby, joining together with the Minnesota Business Partnership, the state’s third largest lobby, for a mega-lobby called MN Forward, which focuses on slashing corporate taxes and cutting government spending. All the entities — the Chamber, the Partnership, MN Forward — have flooded hundreds of thousands of dollars over the past few years into the coffers of Republican candidates, some of whom are architects of a photo ID voter mandate that Republicans would like to have placed on a referendum ballot in November.

Dan McGrath, Executive Director of TakeAction Minnesota told the crowd outside of the House chambers, “There are far too many here in this place who have been told by the 1% that voter ID is what we need. It is not. This is this people’s house and our voices, and votes, will not be silenced.”

The report finds that executives from Minnesota’s three largest banks—Wells Fargo, U.S. Bank and TCF—led and funded a series of inter-related campaign entities that were instrumental in the Republican takeover of the Legislature that put members of ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) in the House leadership and placed an attack on the voting rights of Minnesotans at the top of the 2012 legislative agenda.

The time is now for Minnesotans.
