Treason: “A betrayal of trust or confidence.” 
Can the people of any country have confidence in a government that does not obey the will of the people?
Example: The people of Ireland voted No to joining the European Union. This vote was not acceptable to the elites and the people of Ireland were subjected to another vote that culminated in a Yes vote. Therefore, one has to ask: Why was the No vote unacceptable? Were there other forces behind the scenes determined to subvert democracy and did they succeed? And could one call this abrogation of the original No vote, a case of political treason?
Another example: Some countries now in the European Union never asked their citizens whether they wanted to join. In fact “ Bloomberg Business Week” of June 13, 2008, stated: “Ireland is the only country in Europe to hold a referendum on the treaty.” 
Here is an excerpt from an article in the Brussels Journal by Paul Belien, headlined:
“Former Soviet Dissident Warns For EU Dictatorship” The man being interviewed is Vladimir Bukozksy….
PB: “But all these countries that joined the European Union did so voluntarily.”
VB: “No, they did not. Look at Denmark which voted against the Maastricht treaty twice. Look at Ireland [which voted against the Nice treaty]. Look at many other countries, they are under enormous pressure. It is almost blackmail. Switzerland was forced to vote five times in a referendum. All five times they have rejected it, but who knows what will happen the sixth time, the seventh time. It is always the same thing. It is a trick for idiots. The people have to vote in referendums until the people vote the way that is wanted….” 
Was that what happened to the Irish vote? They had to vote until the elites got the vote “…the way that is wanted.” Now look what has happened to Ireland, its sovereignty has been superseded by the E.U. and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and the unelected IMF has imposed austerity measures on the Irish people. They are now prisoners of an E.U. system that they originally rejected.
It is not only the Irish that is being dictated to by the E.U. and the IMF. Greece is also taking austerity orders from the unelected IMF and other countries are submitting their “economic plans” to the IMF. See info below.
“In recent months, G20 countries have submitted their economic plans to the IMF - which would then assess what the net impact would be on the global economy.” 
Well excuse me, but who elected the IMF? And when did supposed parliamentary democracies decide to hand over their “economic plans” to an unelected cabal of bankers? And what is the point in having elections in so-called “democracies,” if politicians and political leaders of various countries are subservient to the unelected moneychangers on financial matters. Is some form of “global governance” in the works?
“The Group of Twenty ("G-20") nations, the new Financial Stability Board ("FSB"), and the International Monetary Fund ("IMF") are progressing on two fronts: the monitoring and revision of national and regional economic plans to facilitate global economic governance…” 
So there you have it “global governance” is being facilitated. The politicians and the political leaders of various governments appear to be handing over their national sovereignty to unelected bureaucrats and bankers. Therefore, I ask the question: Are we seeing political treason?
