The elections have served as a mechanism to distract the people from their emotions and anger. The consequences of the election come in the financial follow-up. Now it is time for the measures to be imposed. And when the selling of the Greek People's assets begins, StopCartel predicts that it won't take long for huge protests to hit the streets again.

- Germany is making money off the sale of military equipment to Greece. Since 2010, Greece's military budget has increased because Germany, France, and the U.S. all have a financial interest in selling weapons to Greece. Although the financial situation in Greece has been dramatic, military spending has increased. The Germans are lying when they assert that they never pressed Greece to purchase military equipment.

Greece is always trying to upgrade its military equipment in relation to Turkey. Greeks have no reason whatsoever to fear an attack, but despite this, the Greek government continues to spend billions on military equipment while de-funding and cutting pensions and salaries.

What's worse is that the military equipment that Germany, France and the US are selling -- submarines and aircraft and tanks -- is sold to Greece at inflated prices --three times more than the "sticker price.'

- After the election, several new taxes are scheduled to be imposed on homeowners, professionals, etc. There is an elevated taxation of everything in a context where people have no jobs or money to pay the extra taxes.

Why did the people vote in this government?

An examination of the election results shows that a minority of the Greek people voted in favor of this failed government and its criminal economic policies. This 28% represent the Greek citizens who have their financial affairs in order. They seem to have no compassion for the plight of Greek society as a whole and have allowed themselves to be terrorized by propaganda. It is this minority, this 28% who voted for the same failed government with the same failed policies.
