Here’s a fun action step that you can take!
Do you get a lot of junk mail? If your mail is like mine, it’s full of credit card offers. These offers are from the same banks that ruined our economy.
In each of these offers, you’ll find a free postage paid envelope. The banks are only charged postage when you send the envelope back.
So all you simply do, is take the envelope, lick it, seal it, and send it back.
You can mail the envelope empty, you can put a message in the envelope, or you can make the envelope heavier, by filling it up with a wood chips, or something bulky. This will cause the bank to pay more postage.
This isn’t really about running up the postage bill on the big banks, although that’s a nice side effect. The real effect of this is to force banks to react to us. If they start getting hundreds and thousands of weird responses to their credit card applications, well they’re going to have to have meetings. They going to have to develop new procedures and every hour banks spend reacting to us is an hour banks don’t spend lobbying Congress on how to screw us. The banks will have to stop and take notice, as this will impact their daily operations, and possibly open up new discussions.
And as a side benefit, you’ll of course also be helping out the post office, as they need the money.
