Some see, few know, many choose to wander aimlessly in a fog, devoid of sunlight. I seek the light of day and leave the others to their chosen realm of ignorance. They are the ones who have brought this great nation down. I write only for the benefit of those who possess the courage required to restore our birthright.

THE STATE OF OUR UNIONS Submitted by Paul Collings
In a week when President Obama has given his State of the Union address, a speech delivered with such grandiosity, and received in a sea of apathy, you can be forgiven for thinking this post is about that. Although it would be true to say I will be referring to the American union in general, the Unions I want to speak about those of the United Kingdom and Europe.
News is reaching me that the house of Lords, has voted down a bill that would have given the UK a referendum on its membership of the European union. A bit like Texas voting to leave the United States.
It was Prime Minister Cameron who gave a guarantee, that the people of Britain would get a referendum on our membership. The guarantee being a 'politician's guarantee', was one that would rely on many other things, like Europe not being willing to renegotiate some of the treaties or refusing to repatriate some powers back to Britain's Parliament.
The revealing thing is why would there be a drive to leave this union that promotes itself as heaven on Earth. You'd think we didn't like having 85% of our laws forced on us by an unelected secretive body. Why would we complain when we have to take as many immigrants as we can squeeze onto our little Island? And pay them, look after them, and accept all their 'cultural' differences, such as having up to 4 wives, who walk around in niqab's and burqa's. People who want us to eat their religiously slaughtered food, and pay a tax for doing so. We must look like we want hate preachers on our streets and Mosques on every corner. While no one minds a bit of diversity, we do not like the idea of cultural annihilation.
As it stands now, we'll only get a referendum 'IF' we vote in a Conservative government, and provided David Cameron is still the leader of the party. And I'm sure a few other 'IF's' will be invoked before we get a vote. Although there is a big IF happening soon.
What is this big 'IF' you may be wondering? Well, Scotland, a country England has been in a union with for centuries is gearing up for a referendum of their own. They are voting to see if they want to remain part of the British Union. (no way their referendum won't be allowed), That's the Union of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Over the past couple of decades, countries in the British union have set up their own Parliaments, and assemblies and have been making their own laws, and setting some of their own budgets. Although limited, because we use the same currency, they have had a lot of powers devolved to them. Now Scotland wants independence, but their vote will take place before they find out if England are going to vote on the European issue. So they could vote to stay in the UK, and then England might vote to leave Europe, which Scotland does not want to do, if the polls are accurate.
I'm sure if Scotland votes to stay in the Union, we will never get a vote on Europe. That's democracy for you!
So Scotland gets a referendum, and if they vote to leave, what would that mean?(For us as well as them) Are they in or out of Europe? Will they have to reapply to join Europe? If they join Europe will they join the monetary union (Eurozone), or will they keep the British Pound; would we want them to? Doesn't sound like a very independent Scotland if they have to do these things.
What about Scottish people in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, will they need to leave and apply to re enter these countries? Will they just be issued with dual nationality? Will they have to give up their Scottish passports and become English, Welsh or Irish? Or do they just want it all their own way? These Union things are complicated aren't they? Imagine America with its 50 states, or is it 52 as Obama claims?
All these things seem simple enough to solve, or at least members of the Scottish national party say they are. The problem is, at some point the English are going to want to have a say, especially if the English Parliament ties us into deals that favour a country that wants to leave. I'm sure we'll get no special favours from Europe if we leave; although I don't think Britain will ever leave, but that doesn't rule out Europe crashing on the rocks and breaking under its own weight.
We in Britain generally like Europe. We like going abroad, we like working abroad, and we like being able to live abroad,(in Europe). We don't, despite the cries of racism and xenophobia, complain about immigration as much as is made out. It's the problem of Islamic immigration that causes us the most problems, the constant demands and threats, and the cries of Islamophobia that get up our noses. Multi-culturalism is destroying all social cohesion.
We don't like the constant stream of illegal no goods who for some reason, in the name of diversity, we have to take. We don't like not being able to deport criminal foreign nationals who use our human rights laws to protect themselves. And we don't want people who bring their own legal system with them.
We are being left with some hard choices. Membership of Europe
seems to involve a ridiculous amount of unwanted side effects. Immigrants of a certain religion are acting like victorious invaders.
Criminals seem to have more rights than honest people. Honest people are struggling to pay their bills and feed their families, while people who have nothing in common with them, people who have paid nothing into the British system, yet they are getting everything out.
Life for indigenous people appears to be getting harder, while life for immigrants, legal and illegal appears to be made easier. People wave signs saying to behead us, while we can't say boo to them. Violent rapes are on the increase everywhere mass immigration from war torn states has occurred, child grooming is on the increase. Foreign legal systems are running along side our own. Our politicians claim this is nonsense, but with so much evidence they must think the people are completely stupid.
There is a massive upheaval of populations going on. Hundreds of thousands of people have moved away from Britain, with more coming than leaving. The people of Britain did not get a say in this population exchange. We were never asked. And the powers that be, keep denying it is happening. The truth is we would have liked a say as all these things have affected us.
If Scotland leaves the Union, which is up to them, then I think it only fair that the rest of the Union should get a voice about whether or not we continue. We'll decide who we share our currency with, we'll decide who sits in our parliament. I respect the right of Scotland to make their own choices, but if they want to be independent, then that's what they should be. Once they have left, the rest of us should be free to make our own choices; independently of them.
I hope Scotland decides with a big majority to stay within the Union. But how complicated would it be for them if England voted to leave the European Union, and Scotland wanted to stay. It could be a clause that would have to be put in their referendum that gives them the option to leave later.
I also hope Europe can change enough to make it a viable future enterprise for everyone. Europe has to change laws that allow criminals and foreign ideologies to ride rough shod over our cultures and way of life. Europe has to slow down! If we keep allowing millions of immigrants from Islamic nations in, there will be no Europe. Islam follows its own rules.
We have to take charge of who comes and goes if we are to build a Europe we want to live in. We also need a better educated public. A public that understands political ideology. People should be made well aware of all the competing ideologies they are voting for, and how they will affect our lives.
The shape of our world is being changed by some very radical agendas and the voting public have no idea what these agendas are. Very few people have any idea of the true implications of treaties signed on their behalf. Most would be horrified if they knew. I thought we voted for leaders who would protect our nations, not destroy them and make it so we can't stand the sight of each other.
When President Obama said he was going to transform America, no one had a clue about what he really meant. If he'd stood up and said, he was going to divide the country along racial and class lines, if he said he was taking the country to a single payer healthcare system, if he said he was going to give amnesty to unknown millions of illegals, at an unknown cost, would you have voted for him?
What about the scandals of fast and furious, the NSA spying, and Benghazi? Are these things all so embarrassing that no one wants to talk about them? Does no one care about these things enough to insist that their public servants explain what's happening? Or is Hilary Clinton's, "What difference at this point does it make", outburst explain it enough for you?
America is having an agenda forced on them, an agenda the progressives of both parties don't want you to know about. They want your vote to give them legitimacy, but they don't want you after that. Soon they won't even need your vote. They'll have changed the population to one that will vote the way they require. Alex Salmon, leader of the Scottish National Party(SNP). is hoping the people of Scotland will vote for his agenda, even though no one really knows what that is.
Just as an observation, I thought Nationalist parties are considered Right wing fascist parties. The British national party is considered right wing, Marie Le-Penns, national front party is considered right wing ... the SNP? Scotland, for those that don't know, is considered a left leaning country. The Conservatives have been all but wiped out in Scotland. Maybe the Conservative party isn't far right enough for them.
It was the Scots after all who were up in arms about immigrants getting special treatment. Not very tolerant and diverse of them. Can't imagine the English behaving like that. And, can you imagine the English voting in a Nationalist party? Still stranger things have happened. America voted in a Socialist.
Of course Obama won't stand up and say he's a socialist, but the policies he's tried to enact are. Look at what's going on in the US, and look at Europe, an openly socialist continent, and make your own comparisons.
So what state is your Union in? I suspect if your reading essays such as this you feel something is wrong. Some people know what's wrong, some of you won't. I can point out many ills. Most of them will be to do with the overreach of governments who have for decades been giving themselves evermore power. I will point to the Islamic death cult that has brutalized followers and non followers alike, and those that promote that brutality as somehow peaceful and benevolent, and have allowed it to take a foothold across western countries. I point to the disinterested millions that allow themselves to be openly deceived.
I also have a beef with people who for what ever reason won't vote. I talk to people who won't or don't vote quite a lot. They claim it doesn't make a difference, or that its their way of protesting. And then they moan that they hate the government. This is true in what ever union you live in.
The European Union was supposed to unite Countries that for centuries had warred with each other. The Union was going to bring us all together. The trouble is no one told the inhabitants of Europe what the full plan was. We weren't told we'd all have to break up into little diverse groups of different cultures, colours and classes. We didn't know that nation states were going to be destroyed by immigration. We weren't told about monetary union and borders open to hoards of illegal immigrants. We weren't made aware that people from countries that didn't have the same values as we were to be allowed to live, work, and vote in our towns and cities, shaping the political landscape in their favour.
Does any of this sound familiar to any Americans reading this? There are millions of illegal as well as legal immigrants, needing homes, money, jobs, health care. Armed with a vote, imagine who they would they vote for. Take a look at Detroit. Keep watching New York.
The British Union may soon break up, the English would love a chance to vote on the European Union, and American states have been talking of seceding from the US Union. So much for Socialism being so great for unity. Divide and rule being the more likely outcome in the short term. A world totalitarian government in the long term.
Do many people believe their governments represent them? Why aren't people out protesting/ Maybe the people of all these great and wonderful Unions realize, that should they speak out and demand their leaders bend to their will, the will of the voting public, then all these democratic loving leaders will start acting like the despots they claim not to be.
Are we to exist as free individuals with a common goal with just laws. Or are we to be subjected, because of our apathy, to a life of servitude to an elite class. With Globalisation the world elites are coming together and shaping the future. Look at school programmes like 'common core', and see what the kids of tomorrow are being taught to believe.
In September the Scottish will vote on Independence. And then their leaders will ask to join the European Union. So the plan is not Independence. England isn't getting any votes or referendums, so we obviously aren't expected to vote as required. Soon the people of America will go to the polls. When they do, I hope they think very carefully, as this may be the last time they get to vote in an election where any side can win. Very soon they will be confronted by a voting block of entitlement loving new Americans. Then the American Union will look like European Union ... And it is starting to look like the Soviet Union.
