Isn’t it time that we moved into the 21st Century? Hundreds of thousands of our people have been stuck in what can only be compared to quick-sand for the last 90 years or so! Some of our so called leaders of the time ensured that we were well and truly mired down by their clever use of propaganda and their re-writing of Irish history. They created confusion and division where there really was none, and all for their own political and financial benefit – and we’re still well and truly stuck! There is however only one way that we can free ourselves… and that involves opening our eyes to the realisation of what we have allowed these people do to us!
Most people know that the only real difference between Fianna Fail and Fine Gael goes back to the Civil War and whose grandparents did or didn’t support the Anglo Irish Treaty. These two parties have their loyal supporters (God knows why) and they rely on them at each election. It’s the 40 – 50% of non-voters and the ‘don’t knows’ who make up at least 10% that we all have to convince at the next election. All of these people have to be shown that there is a real alternative to the very corrupted system of governance that we have at present – an alternative where everyone can have their voice heard when decisions are being made!
Despite their denials about not misleading the Irish public with regard to the average bill that can be expected from Irish Water, everyone with the slightest scrap of intelligence knows that these people haven’t told us the truth!
The people of Ireland have been slaughtered with extra taxes and charges like the Property Tax, the Household Charge, Water Charges, USC and many more. It is surely only a matter of time before they charge us for the air that we breathe!
Even though most of us suspect it, we must all come to the realisation that the people who control our daily lives have imposed these unjustified charges on us for one reason – and that’s so that they can be seen by their betters in Europe to honour a debt of €64bn which they readily accepted on our behalf! They will of course take their own slice of the cake in order to fill the pockets of their greedy and privileged friends many of whom retired from public service with large pay-offs and large pensions only to be immediately welcomed into the pot of gold which Irish Water has become for the elite and very privileged few!
We all know that this odious debt was never ours in the first place. We know it was Irish and European banking debt. Hundreds of thousands of us can no longer pay our mortgages and other bills that we have. How could we pay these bills when the Government is forcing us to pay the bankers and bond-holders gambling debts too?
At what point are the people of Ireland going to realise that we have a system of Government that is so infested with greed and surrounded on all sides with corruption and fraudulent activity? We must all work together to change this very corruptible way of governing our country! Every 5 years or so when we vote at the ballot box we give up our right to have any say in all of the decisions that affect us and our children to a group of elites who are totally out of touch with the reality of what our worsening struggle is really like!
We have a duty not only to ourselves but to our children and all future generations to protect them from the bully boys and girls that have almost beaten us into submission!
