Final Countdown

“..If we do not find anything very pleasant, at least we shall find something new.”

Voltaire

So elections is next week Monday. This time around the politicians are going all out. I am seeing real money being spent for this election time… millions of dollars. Millions of dollars that could have been spent to actually do some good; except it is being spent madly in the hopes of winning the title of Government of Trinidad and Tobago. And what happens when they win it? Nothing, at least for us that is, they get everything, including the treasury!

For now, I still believe that we need a change, and the Congress of the People is a change, is it the change, I cannot say, but I am willing to give it a chance.

I cannot in hell vote for the PNM, not after all the mismanagement with our money. After all the money that the oil and gas dollars are bringing in, we are not seeing anything. We actually have a case where the middle class is suffering. Just imagine not making enough to purchase a house in the market (and I mean a good house, not one in Laventille), but making too much to not qualify for a government house. So we have the very rich purchasing properties like hell, and the lower class getting houses real cheap. Not to mention all them fucking squatters who begging them to not break down their house; I am not talking about the real poor people who can’t afford, but the squatters with fucking Direct TV! But that is another rant.

As for the UNC, Trinindad is the only fucking country who can have a man who theif, who everybody know theif, and who get charge for fraud, and the people worshiping the man and beggin him to stay. So much people who he associated with get jail and right now fighting extradition. You know what they say about birds of a feather.

So that’s left me with COP. Now it is not like the COP themselves not playing the ass. One of their campaign promises is a laptop for every secondary student! WTF? Isn’t this man an economist? What shit he talking about? How much money is that. Now doing some quick calculations, there are about 130 secondary schools with on average 1,000 students, that is 130,000 students. Now let we say for the sake of argument that we are getting a laptop for $300 US dollars, that is $39,000,000 US dollars. What the fuck! And who say that they are going to use it productively to begin with?

Anyway, nuff ranting. It doesn’t matter who you vote for, just ensure you vote. Those who don’t vote have no right to complain later on whoever wins.
