Greek Political Terrorists Predict the End of Greece
The Greek election campaigns began with Political Terrorism.  The current party in power now holds a gun to the temple of the people for the first time telling them that they will be responsible for the destruction of Greece if they vote for Syriza.

Televisions and radio carry the threat by the banal political parties.  Their advertisements depict the young, the middle aged, and the elderly speaking with Mr. Samaras and Mr. Venizelos spewing phrases telling the people that their promises are the “truth” and that they “continue their truths” from the last thirty years that they have proven otherwise from the amount of corruption that we have seen and heard on the news and that which we cannot even imagine.

The feeling among the Greek people is simple, if the current party in power is trying so hard to sway us against Syriza, then they must be afraid and hiding what they have done and been doing for the last thirty years.

Now Greek citizens are confronted with a left wing political party that promises to do what the others have not.  To actually bring to justice those who have robbed the people of Greece not only through tax evasion but through kick backs that the people have also paid for through their taxes.

Who would you believe when at the same time there is no one to protect you either way!

The news fails to iterate analytically that only those who were or are receiving a pension or a wage as an employee, which are the majority, were paying taxes while those who had their own companies or were politicians avoided or delaying the payment of taxes and at the same time others were tax evading.

At the same time, the television newscasts continue to uncover discoveries of millions of Euros that are either hidden in Greece or in banks abroad by politicians and their cohorts.

Meanwhile, the government claims that they have no money but spend it traveling throughout the country and on numerous mudslinging television commercials even though the people are saying that they should have limited their campaign spending.

New Democracy and Pasok claim that if Syriza, who is currently leading at the polls, wins that Greece will self-destruct.  The same commercials depict the poor leadership by the current party from the use of psychology to terrorize the people.

Who will win this Sunday and what will happen is anyone’s guess.

The mottos of the political parties: (no particular order or preference)
Syriza – Moving Greece Forward and Changing Europe

New Democracy – We tell the truth, we guarantee the future

Pasok – We hold responsibility high

Potami – Let’s Change Greece
They describe 99 points of change for Greece

KKE – Power to the People

There are others, too much in fact, that are a waste of time and the people’s resources.


Quotes that politicians should heed:
We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office. Aesop

Poverty is the parent of revolution and crime. Aristotle

Confront them with annihilation, and they will then survive; plunge them into a deadly situation, and they will then live. When people fall into danger, they are then able to strive for victory. Sun Tzu
