Comments on: The folly of making political prediction markets like Intrade illegal http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2012/11/27/the-folly-of-making-political-prediction-markets-like-intrade-illegal/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: 4Sanity http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2012/11/27/the-folly-of-making-political-prediction-markets-like-intrade-illegal/#comment-67297 Wed, 28 Nov 2012 02:54:33 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=15760#comment-67297 This naked power grab by an agency which has waged an outright Jihad against prediction markets for years now is ample evidence that the CFTC MUST be dismantled, and retooled into something that actually serves the interests of the American people, not the cronies of the people inside the CFTC itself. That they are stomping all over these innovate concepts that have great value to society, AFTER TURNING A BLIND EYE TO THE REAL DANGERS like the CDS/CDO debacles of 2008 and before, is proof that these clowns should not have a shred of power at their disposal. They are parasites at best.

There is only one question now. Which member of Congress’s door do I and thousands of others need to knock on to get this process rolling?
