I aint that political,mostly I have to admit out of laziness or apathy.I dont trust politicians,they dont seem at all genuine,like used care
salesmen,but then again I never really had the need to contact my local td.
But once,when I belived in democracy to an extent,and thought I had to make my voice heard about something which was important,I done something crazy,
Yes. I voted,The lisbon treaty was being forced down our throats by our governmnet and europe.Like I said Im not that into politics,but there was a
lot in the treaty I didnt agree with.I also didnt like the scaremongering involved in pushing for the yes vote,And when our Taoiseach/Primeminister
was asked after he was pushing for the yes,Did he read the treaty,He said No,not yet!yet he was pushing for a yes,That blew my mind,he didnt know or
care what he was selling us.Too busy shmoozing with sarcozy and europe thinking he was onto a good thing,one of the big boys now,he was used and
played for the fool he was.
Anyway,thats all fine,politicians are pushing another agenda.let him think he is one of the elite,we the people still have a say, right?. I voted
NO,and I was proud of myself,
The results were in.Ireland voted NO, haha yes,People despite the scaremongering didnt feel this treaty was right for Ireland,they knew in their gut
it was wrong,And we said No.
And THEY said ,what??? NO??? ahahah dont be silly,try again! Try the other answer,*pats us on the head,and rolls their eyes amongst themselves*
So amazingly,after other polticians in europe said basicly,This wont do, it has to be passed.!There was another vote,???
The scare mongering,lies and political bullying intensified, and people voted Yes,
I was so angry at the whole thing,its all a bloody fix,Even as I type its bringin back the anger I felt at the manipulation of peoples fears.
So,thats when i tried to interact with government,and how most of Ireland tried to interact with them.and it didnt instill too much confidence in
their worth/role/purpose,let me tell you that,
