The Greeks Bow Down to Chaos

Someone from Greece posted several videos on a thread this morning.

GREECE NOW! The President of Greece and politicians in all over the country are forced to leave from the celebrations of October 28th!!

For the first time in the modern history of Greece, the President of Greece Karolos Papoulias is forced to leave from the military parade for the celebration of the national day of October 28th!

Hundreds of thousands of people gathered in Thessaloniki, where the celebrations took place, and shouted “TRAITOR, TRAITOR” at the first citizen of Greece. He was forced to leave, stating that a small group (!!!) ruined today’s celebrations.

The role of the President, in Greece, is very limited. He is only required to sign the laws that the Parliament votes for. The true policy maker is the Prime Minister, now George Papandreou.

The world was shouting TRAITOR at him because he could had easily refused to sign all the laws who impoverished Greeks.

In Athens, the musical band of the Municipality of Athens, marched with black bracelets! Even their musical instrument wore black bracelets!

Warning! Progressives’ NPV Plan for White House Control, 2012 & Permanently

October 21, 2011 by Jacquerie of Wake Up America

While the lamestream media holds public attention on GOP candidate rivalries, a “progressive” strategy is underway to eliminate the role of the states in electing a U.S. President. By transferring electoral votes to a “national popular vote” this “Compact”  would  usurp the role of the states as safeguarded by our Constitution.
