Is there Democracy - a message from the USA

Below is an email sent to me by a friend in the USA and see how relevant it is to our own country.

For sometime I have been saying that the Democratic process no longer works in the UK. Our MP's no longer represent the wishes of their constituants, they believe when voted in they have the independence to decide what they think is right, which is not always the same as what the majority of the constituants want. Lets take a couple of examples 1) No one in this country voted for a Coalition Government yet we got one 2) If there was to be a coalition surely the two parties with the most votes should form a government not a party with less then 10% of the Vote. This obviously would not happen so another election should be called immediately until their is a majority government

If legislation is not mentioned in a manifesto the proposal should go to a Referendum. Take the recent Same Sex Marriage (in reality this is for Gay people as people of the same sex who are related can not) legislation did any party have that on their manifesto? NO So they approach the electorate on the issue this should have gone to referendum. War in Syria War Mongers Obama, Cameron and Hague are desperate for us to get involved should Parliament be trusted to on this issue? NO they will not be the ones getting killed and once again there was nothing in any referendum stating that they would go to war on an occasion which did not affect the security of this country.

The first past the post does not work any more so what choices to we have:
1) Proportional Representation, this never produces strong government and gives minority parties like the Libdems to much power and will always produce coalitions. Alright for the EU as the MEP's have no power and no real say in what is basically a benevolent Dictatorship
2) I favour making voting compulsory and if a candidate does not have over 50% of the electorates vote the top two candidates go back to another vote. This would at least give a more representative opinion
3) More Referendums on conditions they are  even handed, lets be under no illusion if we ever have a referendum on the EU it will not be equally funded. The Pro EU will funded by the EU with our money

With Labour opposition so weak it is unlikely they will win the next election it will leave the door open to the Balir Clone David Cameron, I can not wait till we get a true Conservative Leader and a true Conservative Government.

Next Step - Dictatorship


FOR THE SHOCK OF YOUR LIFE, READ BELOW, and take a minute to comprehend what you are reading!

EXECUTIVE ORDERS ISSUED by U.S. Presidents in the last 100 years+/-:

Teddy Roosevelt - 3

All Others until FDR - 0

FDR - 11 in 16 years

If you don't get the implications you're not paying attention.  Very Scary.

923 Executive Orders in 40 Months

During my lifetime, all Presidents have issued Executive Orders.  For various reasons, some have issued more than others.

Even some Democrats in the House have turned on him, plus a very small number of Democrat Senators have questioned him.  Rightfully so -  WHAT IS OBAMA REALLY TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH????

Remember what he told Russia 's Putin: "I'll be more flexible after I'm re-elected".

What did Congress do in those 40 months?   (The House - considerable. The Senate – almost nothing, not even a budget nor allow any House Bill to be considered.)

Now look at these:

EXECUTIVE ORDER 10990 allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports
EXECUTIVE ORDER 10995 allows the government to seize and control the communication media.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 10997 allows the government to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 10998 allows the government to take over all food resources and farms.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11000 allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11001 allows the government to take over all health, education and welfare functions.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11002 designates the registration of all persons. Postmaster General to operate a national registration.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11003 allows the government to take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11004 allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11005 allows the government to take over railroads, inland waterways and public storage facilities.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11049 assigns emergency preparedness function to federal departments and agencies, consolidating 21 operative Executive Orders issued over a fifteen year period.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11051 specifies the responsibility of the Office of Emergency Planning and gives authorization to put all Executive Orders into effect in times of increased international tensions and economic or financial crisis.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11310 grants authority to the Department of Justice to enforce the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute industrial support, to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921 allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution, of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in U.S. financial institution in any undefined national emergency. It also provides that when a state of emergency is declared by the President,
Congress cannot review the action for six months.

Feel free to verify the "executive orders" at will.....and these are just the major ones.  I'm sure you've all heard the tale of the "Frog in the Pot"...  Watch Obama's actions, not his words! By his actions he will show you where America is headed.

Just this week, Obama has issued a new executive order that seeks to "harmonize" U.S. economic regulations with the rest of the world.  This new executive order is yet another incremental step that is pushing us closer to a North American Union and a one world economic system.

Unfortunately, most Americans have absolutely no idea what is happening.

The American people need to understand that Barack Obama is constantly looking for ways to integrate the United States more deeply with the rest of the world.
The globalization of the world economy has accelerated under Obama, and this latest executive order represents a fundamental change in U.S. economic policy.
Now federal regulators will be required to "harmonize" their work with the international community.


Is this the way you want a government run?   What has happened to our Constitution and the power of the three different parts of our government... Judicial, Legislative, and Executive?   Power is being taken away from two of them and run by the President.    This is not how our forefathers planned it.   We are not to be guided by the  rest of the world and doing what they want.   What is the solution?   Please let me know.  l, with most others, am very worried, are you?
