Republic of Ireland and the IMF Meetings in Dublin

I believe our Government (Executive, Legislative, and Judicial) has let the people of the Republic of Ireland down very, very badly in a whole range of ways relating to the basic law of the land, and that it has done so over a period of several years.

However, that is not a good reason for us, the people of the Republic of Ireland, to let ourselves down.

We, the people of the Republic of Ireland, still have Bunreacht na hEireann -- which literally means "The Basic Law of Ireland" -- and Article 6.1 of Bunreacht na hEireann very clearly states:

"All powers of government, legislative, executive and judicial, derive, under God, from the people, whose right it is to designate the rulers of the State and, in final appeal, to decide all questions of national policy, according to the requirements of the common good."

Now, more than at any time in the history of the Republic of Ireland, we need to gently but firmly insist (by all lawful and peaceful means available to us), that our "public servants" respect Article 6.1 of our basic law in relation to the dozens of billions of Euros they are planning to borrow for the purpose of bailing out the bankers (in connection with their self-inflicted gambling debts).

I believe we simply MUST stand our ground on this particular issue, at this particular time; otherwise, it is very difficult to predict what will happen to us all.
