If all nations are in debt and all citizens are to be forced into lifelong austerity to pay off “their” creditors then the most important question in the world becomes:
Identifying the creditors and asking why they have precedence over the lives of people who did not create this problem.
Think clearly about this for a moment
“Austerity” means your lives and your children’s lives will be less free for decades. Since all nations are “in debt” then their must at its core a group of private creditors benefiting from this situation.
Government’s everywhere have the moral right as representatives of the people to weigh and balance private citizens rights against those of a small minority of other citizens. . It is moral and right for the governments to identify the core group of private people hiding behind all the debt shell entities who are supposedly “owed” money by these countries citizens.Those citizens likely never voted for the debts anyway.
Austerity for millions is not an acceptable situation for for the ordinary Citizen why should he recognize, take on the ill borrowed, non voted, “debts” of others . Why is it the politicians serve the interests of the “creditors” rather than the people they are purported to represent.
Millions of people should not be forced into a lifelong form of loss of freedom (which is what “Austerity” really means on an individual level for each citizen) as a result of putting false debts unto the backs of their governments.
So folks time to get off your ass and make your Government work for you

Tony Rochford hasn’t taken food for 11 days – but insists he will not end his strike unless the property tax is repealed.
A MAN who today enters the twelfth day of his hunger strike against the property tax has admitted he does not expect to survive for much longer.
Tony Rochford, who turns 45 next week, has been on hunger strike in opposition to the new tax since last Monday.
Rochford has lost nine kilograms (about 19 pounds) since his strike began – surviving only on water and black coffee – and is continuing to lose weight as he refuses to end his protest.
He believes his home is now worth about €280,000, making it liable for an annual property tax of €495.
He claims, however, that his mortgage lender refuses to enter into any negotiations with him, because he and his wife had already been given a moratorium on their repayments – which has since concluded – and because he has not entered into significant arrears.

Has anybody complained about these loan companies getting bailed out by the taxpayer then using the bailout to pay mega bonuses to the upper management? No, the government and banking industry want to make it harder for those who depend on the occassional short-term loans to get through any rough patches that come along. This so-called watchdog agency created by Obama should concentrate on the big banks like BofA, JP Morgan-Chase, and Wells Fargo. these companies are trying to foreclose on loans that have been renegotiated through federal programs. Thousands of people are losing their homes because of these companies not keeping track of payments made to their subsidaries which more than a few have gone belly-up and misfiling of paperwork. These mistakes are costing the homeowner billions on top of their homes. Obama’s watchdog should be looking into these breaches of contracts instead of the payday loan industry.
