A Slow Coup

Two members of the Greek Parliament admitted openly on TV last night that there is no democracy left in Greece.

The coup was accomplished over years and even decades, and every means the people might have used to defend their freedom has been quietly removed. You can't even prosecute politician criminals, because one of them (Venizelos) slipped an article into the Constitution making that illegal. Only they can investigate themselves.

There is also a Director of Information, a government clearing-house for television news, so we don't even know what is being censored.

The populace are in the mood for revolution. But nobody knows what to do, or how.

What Greece needs is a miracle.

And here we are headed in the same direction.... too many "Executive Orders" by our presidents that are not challenged by Congress. And I don't just mean our current president. It's been happening for years, just like in Greece.

Greece is not the only one in need of a miracle.
