So if you are reading this and you have your money in a "too big to fail" bank move your money to a local credit union, or don't. I am not writing this to tell others what to do, but if you choose to bank with the "too big to fails" you are casting your vote of support to the greedy people and practices that have cause the financial mess we are in. As someone who lives in 2 different states for parts of the year, and travels a lot I know it is way easier to bank with a large bank that has branches everywhere. I hope you care more about your local community then you enjoy ease of banking at a bank with tons of branches.
"Each time a man stands for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance." - Robert F. Kennedy
