Not sure if any of you have been paying attention to what is happening in Catalonia Spain. The people there are holding a vote, an independence referrendum. The issue was brought to many Americans attention when Prez Trump mentioned he stood behind the Spanish government. The referendum vote was/is being held October 1. So far over 300 people have been injured from police trying to stop the vote. I think this is very important that people watch and follow. Please note the Scottish voted on a similar referendum but the people of Scotland voted to stay as part of the UK. The Scots went to the polls and cast their votes. But today in Spain we are witnessing something horribly different. Neither man, woman or dogs are safe from the police. Please watch this video: Internet outage halts voting in Catalonia independence referendum What the world is seeing is horrifying. Spain is determined to stop this vote. Currently the internet is off in another attempt to stop this vote. Why is this important? This referendum vote is illegal under Spain's constitution. View: Allowing Catalonia referendum to play out is not an option Could this happen here? As people get more and more tired of government controlling their lives, the more they push back at TPTB, the government ramps up to keep its control. People say they are willing to die for their freedom but look at Catalonia today. This is what happens when people seek their independence. Why are people being beaten in the streets? If the vote is illegal then let them vote and say it is illegal. Why has it come to this?
