    I’m not a fan of MR but just because an American has a Swiss bank account does not automatically make them a criminal…so tired of this sentiment. Imagine…some of us even LIVE here.

      I agree Chantal but unfortunately Swiss banks are not getting a good press in the States at the moment. But there is the fact that if you live here, it’s normal to have a Swiss bank account. If you’re a millionaire living in the US, it does beg the question why not have your money in an American bank account? Even if it is above board and declared, why ship it over here?

        Come on Diccon, you would seriously have your money in a US bank with the whole corrupt payramid system of banking and investment they have over there? It is going to topple any time soon.

        The Swiss are pussycats compared to the trillions going through US and UK banks from misrepresentation and other tricks. Even MFGlobal did the unthinkeable, illegal thing of emptying out 600 million from US client accounts via London, and the CEO goes to Congress and says he does not know where those funds aere now….and he is not even charged!!! Farmers who need to hedge their crop prices have been left with empty accounts!!!

        It suits these US “banksters” to point fingers at the Swiss because it helps distract attention from their own problems, including all the dodgy companies and banks in Deleware – they don’t even need to choose to go offshore!

        Romney was smart and put his money somewhere safer, but unfortunately the vultures got to know and now they are eating him alive and distracting everyone from the problems they created at home.

        It’s time the Swiss developed a strategy to focus on quality of product, safety of banking system (if UBS and Credit Suisse ensure they completely disconnect from the US that is) and Market like crazy.

        I also respectfully suggest you should read a little wider Diccon. I highly recommend the experienced US Wall Street trader / journalist Max Keiser who produces a video show 3 times weekly in his site and syndicated to various stations also. He is not only informative but can be very entertaining, very funny, but absolutely spot on.

    America is the worlds only hope of lasting peace and the continued reduction of industrial violence. Much of the world is home to uncouth-ed savages and, worse, elitist pacifists, who somehow believe they’ll be part of the new world communist proletariat. Social progressiveness and eat the rich attitudes make the world only a more dangerous and barbarous place. I only wish I had my own Swiss bank account – with millions in it.

      Assuming that this isn’t irony, I suggest you read The Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein, unless you don’t want your simplistic monetarist boat rocked. Reading makes you smarter. Hopefully.

    Since Republicans don’t think it worthwile to get to know other countries anyway, let alone to speak another language (if they even know that there are other countries and other languages), that will be the case with pretty much every Republican candiadate.
