How many people stand in the way of the peace, happiness, and prosperity of The People of Ireland?
A mere 166 men and women, that’s how many. They are variously described as turkeys, chancers, charlatans, frauds, swindlers, parasites, gombeens, whores, and a host of other unprintable names that would make the indomitable Mrs Brown blush.
Who are they?
They are the supposed representatives of the Irish People – the parliamentary TDs to whom we have entrusted the powers of running our country on behalf of every man, woman, and child. Unfortunately, they do not run the country on our behalf. They mostly serve the interests of the international banksters and the huge corporations they’ve spawned.
One need look no further than the bank bailouts in Ireland and elsewhere. And look at Greece and Italy. Their cowardly politicians abdicated democratic control of their respective governments and handed over power to unelected banksters. This heralds the death of democracy and the beginning of overt rule by the New World Order.
Some may argue that at least the Independent TDs work on our behalf. Alas, not so. This writer has first-hand knowledge of Independent TDs being given powerful information on how the banksters have long committed colossal theft and have been criminally deceiving the Irish People for generations. The Independent TDs were also given historical information on alternatives to interest-free and debt-free money creation that would turn Ireland’s fortunes around tomorrow. But no action was taken. Nor was there a pertinent question asked in the Dáil. Not a single, solitary one. I guess these so-called representatives of the Irish People looked at their bread and observed which side was buttered.
The leaders of all the main parties and government ministers also received this information. The response of Michael Noonan, the Minister for Finance, was typical. When he was directed to a website that explained the banksters’ criminality and how to counteract it, he promptly unsubscribed. It seems our Government governs by The Law of the Three Monkeys – Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil.
Following is a piece written by journalist Charlie Reese. http://freedom-school.com/545-people.html
It applies to members of the U.S. Congress, the President, and the Supreme Court, but it could equally apply to the Irish Parliament or to the parliament/government of almost any other country…
545 vs. 300,000,000
Every Citizen needs to read this and think about what this journalist has scripted in this message. Read it and then really think about our current political debacle.

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.
Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?
Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?
You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The president does.
You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations – the House of Representatives does.
You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.
You and I don’t set fiscal policy – Congress does.
You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.
One hundred Senators, 435 Congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300+ million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.
I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash.
The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how he, or she votes.
Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits. The president can only propose a budget – he cannot force the Congress to accept it.
The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? Nancy Pelosi. She is the leader of the majority party. She and fellow House members, not the president, can approve any budget they want. If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.
It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300+ million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist. (Consider, what has the federal government gotten itself into that has actually worked?)
If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair
If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red.
If the Army and Marines are in IRAQ (and elsewhere), it’s because they want them in IRAQ.
If they do not receive Social Security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to (We) the people, it’s because they want it that way.
There are no insoluble government problems.
Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.
Those 545 people and they alone are responsible — they and they alone have the power.
They and they alone should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.
Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees.
We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

If he cries
Tax his tears.
Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.
Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won’t be done
Till he has no dough.
When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He’s good and sore.
Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in which he’s laid.
Put these words
Upon his tomb,
Taxes drove me
to my doom…’
When he’s gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

THINK THIS IS FUNNY?
Consider that not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom could stay home to raise the kids if she chose.
What happened? Can you spell ‘politicians?’ Wake up people!
(…and one has to ‘press 1’ for English!?)
MEMO: To All 535 voting members of the Legislature; it is now official you are ALL corrupt morons:
- The U.S. Post Service was established in 1775. You have had 235+ years to get it right and it is broke.
- Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 75 years to get it right and it is broke.
- Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 72 years to get it right and it is broke.
- War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45+ years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to “the poor” and they only want more.
- Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 45+ years to get it right and they are broke.
- Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 40+ years to get it right and it is broke.
- The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 33+ years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.
You have FAILED in every “government service” you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars.
Hey, some of you have been in place since before some of these programs!
AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM? IT´S NOT ABOUT THE NEED FOR GOOD HEALTH CARE, IT´S ABOUT TRUSTING THE GOVERNMENT TO RUN IT.
Simple solution that even you may comprehend — no need for ´health care reform´ – just move us all into the same program that you all have already in place! Simple.
Feel encouraged to share this with anyone you may know — while there is yet time to do so!
IT’S NOT LEFT-vs-RIGHT — IT’S THE STATE-vs-YOU!
“Most people prefer to believe their leaders are just and fair even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a citizen acknowledges that the government under which they live is lying and corrupt, the citizen has to choose what he or she will do about it. To take action in the face of a corrupt government entails risks of harm to life and loved ones. To choose to do nothing is to surrender one’s self-image of standing for principles. Most people do not have the courage to face that choice. Hence, most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all.”

“Because of what appears to be lawful commands on the surface, many Citizens, because of their respect for what appears to be law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their rights due to ignorance.”

Thesis – Antithesis – Synthesis = Problem – Reaction – Solution
“My schooling not only failed to teach me what it professed to be teaching,
but prevented me from being educated to an extent which infuriates me
when I think of all I might have learned at home by myself.” –George Bernard Shaw

Governments should be afraid of their people.” –V
“They must find it difficult… Those who have taken authority as the truth, rather than truth as the authority.” –Gerald Massey
“Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality.
But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty,
socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.”
“The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers
that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.”
–Alexis de Tocqueville, 1805~1859
“For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know
the whole truth; to know the worst, and provide for it.”
“Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!”

“An honest man is one who knows that he can’t consume more
