Too Big To Fail? Then Let's Make Big Banks Smaller

I'm slowly beginning to realize just how many of us have absolutely unjust and wrong incidents with our "big banks." Don't believe me? Just read the comments in the "Dear Chase, FUCK YOU" diary I wrote yesterday. Guess what? We're far from alone.

Phil over at ACB pointed me to the website Move Your Money, which he happened upon over at Huffington Post.  It even has a handy-dandy feature that allows you to put in your zip code and receive a list of small local banks with good reviews in your community. I plan to take advantage of this in short order.

I urge you to check out the site and consider moving your money to a smaller, community-based bank that hasn't engaged in the kind of practices that caused our economy to tank or that screw hard-working Americans over on a daily basis. If banks are "too big to fail," let's make them smaller.

Wouldn't people moving their money out of large banks into smaller banks then make the smaller banks into large banks, thus creating the same environment for the practices now being implemented by the larger-soon-to-be-smaller banks?
