The Birthplace of Democracy gives us the Death of Democracy!

It's a long post! Grab a cup of tea.......

Wherever you live you will no doubt have read of the Greek elections in January of this year when Syriza, led by Tsipras, swept to victory on an electoral platform which pledged to free Greece from the "illegal and odorous" false debt which had stripped Greece of its sovereignty and its assets.
Once elected, of course, Syriza showed its true colours and decided to deal with the Bankster criminals despite the pre-election promises. In most people's opinion, this would seem to suggest that they had been elected under false pretences.

To legitimise this complete u-turn, they offered the Greek electorate a referendum on the issue, expecting the Greeks to vote "Yes" to a deal with the Banksters after months of fervent propaganda in the media.

The Greeks voted "No" deal!

Tsipras and the Syriza government completely ignored this clear instruction from the electorate, and Democracy was rushed into the Intensive Care ward, gasping its last breaths.

To try to gain some legitimacy for this crime, the assassination of Democracy and the theft of a nation state, Tsipras called another election.

Understanding Cognitive Dissonance, and understanding politics, he knew that enough of his supporters would be reluctant to change their vote, having spent months telling their friends and family how great Tsipras was.

So the September election took place.

It was the funeral service for Democracy in the country of its birth.

Here's the numbers:

  Registered Electors  9,840,525  
 Voters  5,566,295 56.6%
 Blank and Invalid Votes  134,445 2.4%
 Valid Votes  5,431,850 97.6%

From this it is clear that 97.6% of 56.6% of Greeks eligible to vote voted.
So 55.24% of eligible Greeks voted, or 5,431,850

Here's how they cast their votes:

 Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA)  1,925,904 35.5%
 New Democracy (ND)                               1,526,205  28.1%
 Golden Dawn (XA)                                  379,581 7.0%
 Democratic Coalition (PASOK-DIMAR)     341,390 6.3%
 Communist Party of Greece (KKE)     301,632 5.6%
 The River (To Potami)                                  222,166 4.1%
 Independent Greeks (ANEL)                    200,423 3.7%
 Union of Centrists (EK)                                  186,457 3.4%
 Popular Unity (LAE)                                  155,242 2.9%
 Others                                                               192,850 3.6%

What does this mean?
It means that a party which won 35.5% of 55.24% of the voters won this election.

AS 5,431,850 voted, that means that Tsipras and Syriza now rule Greece with a mandate from just 1,928,307 people.

This represents just 19.6% of eligible voters.

Here is the fallacy and illegitimacy of Democracy exposed for all to see.

A party which sold a lie to the Greek people, illegally ignored a referendum of the Greek people, seized power yet again on behalf of its Bankster masters on just 19.6% support of eligible voters!

Rest in Peace, Democracy.

And what of people's disenchantment with the "democratic" process?

See how the proportion of eligible voters that bother to vote has dipped, after years of corruption and theft by politicians:

April    2000       75% voted
March  2004    76.5% voted
Sept     2007     74.2% voted
Oct       2009      70.9% voted
May     2012      65.1% voted
June     2012     62.5% voted
Jan      2015      63.6% voted
REFERENDUM  62.5% voted
Sept    2015      56.6%  voted.

In just 15 years the comparatively high proportion of Greeks using their votes has shrunk by an astonishing 18.4% in actual terms, by almost 25% in relative terms. 

Only three quarters of those that used to vote now bother to vote.

The biggest fall off happened after the "no" vote resoundingly won the referendum and the Tsipras government completely ignored the legitimate voice of its electorate, its supposed masters.

You can hear "what's the point of voting" everywhere on the streets here now.

Tsipras speech BEFORE the referendum bears reading, considering what he did AFTER.
Here it is, in all its lying glory for all to see:

“Greek citizens,

For the last six months, the Greek government has been waging a battle under conditions of unprecedented economic asphyxiation, in order to implement your mandate, that of January 25th. (LIES START HERE)

The mandate to negotiate with our partners to bring about an end austerity, and for prosperity and social justice to return to our country once more.

For a sustainable agreement that will respect democracy, as well as European rules, and which will lead to a definitive exit from the crisis.

During the negotiations, we were repeatedly asked to implement memoranda policies agreed to by the previous governments, despite the fact that the memoranda were unequivocally condemned by the Greek people in the recent elections.

We never considered giving in—not even for a moment. Of betraying your trust. (LIE)

Following five months of tough negotiations, our partners submitted a proposal-ultimatum at the Eurogroup meeting, taking aim at Greek democracy and the Greek people.

An ultimatum that contravenes Europe’s founding principles and values. The values of our common European project.

The Greek government was asked to accept a proposal that will add new unbearable weight to the shoulders of the Greek people, and that will undermine the recovery of the Greek economy and society–not only by fueling uncertainty, but also by further exacerbating social inequalities.

The institutions’ proposal includes measures that will further deregulate the labor market, pension cuts, and further reductions in public sector wages–as well as an increase in VAT on food, restaurants and tourism, while eliminating the tax breaks of the Greek islands.

These proposals–which directly violate the European social acquis and the fundamental rights to work, equality and dignity–prove that certain partners and members of the institutions are not interested in reaching a viable and beneficial agreement for all parties, but rather the humiliation of the Greek people.

These proposals mainly illustrate the IMF’s insistence on harsh and punitive austerity measures. Now is the time for the leading European powers to rise to the occasion and take initiative to definitively end the Greek debt crisis, a crisis affecting other European countries as well, by threatening the very future of European integration.

"Greek citizens,

We are facing a historic responsibility —and this responsibility weighs upon us (LIE).

Our responsibility for our country’s future.

This responsibility obliges us to respond to the ultimatum based on the sovereign will of the Greek people (LIE).

Earlier this evening, the Cabinet was convened and I proposed holding a referendum, so that the Greek people can decide.

My proposal was unanimously accepted.

Tomorrow, the Parliament will hold an extraordinary meeting to ratify the Cabinet’s proposal for a referendum to take place next Sunday, on July 5th. The question on the ballot will be whether the institutions’ proposal should be accepted or rejected.

I have already informed the French President, the German Chancellor, and the ECB’s president of my decision, while tomorrow I will ask for a short extension of the program -in writing- from the leaders of the EU and the institutions, so that the Greek people can decide free of pressure and blackmail, as stipulated by our country’s Constitution and Europe’s democratic tradition.

Greek citizens,

I call on you to decide –with sovereignty and dignity as Greek history demands–whether we should accept the extortionate ultimatum that calls for strict and humiliating austerity without end, and without the prospect of ever standing on our own two feet, socially and financially (AND WHATEVER YOU DECIDE, I SHALL IGNORE YOU ALL AND DO THE DEAL ANYWAY).

We should respond to authoritarianism and harsh austerity with democracy–calmly and decisively.

Greece, the birthplace of democracy, should send a resounding democratic message to the European and global community... (that you can't fight the world bankster power!).

And I personally commit that I will respect the outcome of your democratic choice, whatever it may be (AMAZING, INCREDIBLE LIE).

I am absolutely confident that your choice will honor our country’s history and will send a message of dignity worldwide.

In these critical times, we all have to remember that Europe is the common home of all of its peoples.

That in Europe there are no owners and guests.

Greece is, and will remain, an integral part of Europe, and Europe an integral part of Greece.

But a Europe without democracy will be a Europe without an identity and without a compass.

I call on all of you to act with national unity and composure, and to make a worthy decision (WHICH I WILL COMPLETELY IGNORE WITHIN A WEEK).

For us, for our future generations, for Greek history.

For our country’s sovereignty and dignity.“

(Bold highlight added, source: Prime Ministry Greece)

Compare the highlighted statements with what happened a few days later, when Tsipras signed the very deal that the Greeks had just instructed him to reject.

JUST ONE WEEK AFTER THE REFERENDUM, DEMONSTRATING WHAT A  PACK OF LIES WAS UTTERED, TSIPRAS GAVE IN TO EVERY DEMAND OF THE BANKSTERS!

All over the world we see the same or worse examples of the highjacking of Democracy, how governments fail to represent the interests of the people and completely ignore their wishes, how governments everywhere weigh down future generations with unrepayable debt created out of thin air, how everywhere politicians are in the hands of the Bankster and Royal elites, slaves to the Satanic Paedophile blood drinkers that rule this reality and increasingly tighten their grip on free will.

DEMOCRACY IS DEAD. WE KNOW THAT FASCISM AND COMMUNISM AND ANARCHY ARE DISEASED. THE HUMAN RACE MUST FIND A NEW WAY, ITS OWN NEW WORLD ORDER, OR THIS WICKEDNESS WILL BE THE END OF THE SPECIES, PERHAPS OF ALL LIFE ITSELF HERE IN THIS WORLD.

THERE IS VERY LITTLE TIME.
STAND HERE AND BE COUNTED.
