CALLING ALL HONEST MEN 
Hello again folks! Once again this morning on the way to work I had a good 'ol listen to Eric Troyer's gentastic composition: "Honest Men" as performed by Electric Light Orchestra Part II back in 1991:
"... Where did all the heroes go? We've had our fill of this gallery of scoundrels, The leaders of the world, Those power hungry liars, Rise up and sound the sirens, Send out the searching parties, All we need is a few good men ......... Throw out the tyrants, Those aged fat cats, Outlived their usefulness, They have led us to this mess, Make them answer, Hold them to their promises, And throw them in the street, If they won't tell the truth ..." [end quote]
What struck me was the various topics covered in the song - especially these lyrics that I've cited above. The reason I say this is that with the General Election upcoming and the huge debt our nation is carrying as a result of the [so-called] "credit crunch"; these words are indeed more relevant today than they were 19 years ago [was it really that long ago???]
Our Parliament is a gallery of scoundrels; our leaders are power hungry liars [especially when seeking re-election - remember the Labour 2005 election 'promise' to hold a referendum on the EU constitution a.k.a. Lisbon Treaty for example?]; they have indeed led us to this [financial et al] mess and ordinary folks/voters [whoever they fell led to vote for] should indeed hold them to their promises if they will not tell the truth. You know where I stand with my politics hence there is no need for me to re-state that!
I do believe that it is a noble and good thing to be able to vote and a tragedy if folks don't. The days are coming when the word 'vote' will mean something entirely different in the forthcoming 'Beast' empire - much as the the word "gay" [for example] has changed meaning in the last forty  years. By the way - debates and voting in the EU pariliament currently constitute a ninety  second light flashing 'aye' or 'nay' session.
So vote for who you feel led to vote for. But please don't NOT vote. And hold your leaders; your MP's and MEP's to account for their promises. Calling all honest men [and women]! By the way - if you would like to hear "Honest Men" for your good selves; you can visit my ELO BEATLES FOREVER YouTube site here:
Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!
God bless you and God bless Israel ... Keith JS ... 13-April-2010
