For the sake of political expediency I have 'accepted' no single payer, no public option, a war on whistleblowers, Presidential execution by drone, the expansion of the security state, the militarization of our police forces, the persecution of Bradley Manning and Julian Assange, fifteen months of unemployment, a house that's 263% underwater, no healthcare coverage, Eric Holder, Tim Geithner -- BUT THIS IS WHERE I DRAW THE LINE. Wall Street must be held accountable for their criminal behavior. No prosecutions, no votes.

If President Obama does not initiate prosecutions of Goldman Sachs and the other criminals on Wall Street who looted our country, I will not vote.  I have voted in every Presidential Election since 1972, but I won't be voting in this one if he doesn't publicly direct the Justice Department and the SEC to prosecute.

U.S. Won’t Prosecute Goldman Sachs, Employees Over CDO Deals

Our only leverage is our votes.  If we don't force President Obama to do the right thing before the election, he never will.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
