Iceland Rejects Banksters in April 9 Referendum

Way to go Iceland! Voters in Iceland rejected a decision to ruin the population for the next twenty years to pay off the bank fraudsters by a vote of 58 percent to 42. Hopefully next step will be default and the Icelanders refusal to have their pockets picked will cause the Greeks, Portuguese and Spanish to seriously consider the Argentine option.

This vote shows the value of democracy and why the corporate stooges in Greece, Portugal, Ireland etc are afraid to put the bailout to a referendum. The people aren't a stupid as their masters would like them to be.

Several disturbing trends in this poll, however. The first is that the Green Party backed paying the crooks, just like their sister party did in Ireland. Such a major betrayal in such a short time. It took the social democrats about 40 years to degenerate this much. The second thing is, the previous referendum rejected the con-job by 93 to 7. Somehow 35% of the Icelandic population got soft in the head in the course of 14 months. Part of this is undoubtedly due to authoritarian conditioning as the example of the university administrator who voted yes because he thought the politicians “knew more than he did.” Yes, there's a sucker born every day!


UPDATE - the final tally is about 60-40 rejection and in the comments section of the CBC story on the vote, comments in favor of the rejection are running 80 to 3 negatives.

Interesting post.

The Green Party information is interesting. I wonder if Greens in the US and Canada, are aware of such betrayal.

Try to see the movie Inside Job. The bank speculation is covered, better than Michael Moore did.
