Are we down for the count or saved by the bell?

Even as they push us to lose we still have the capacity to win

The odds are many but it appears that You the People and I are still winning Battles against National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) and Health Service Authority (HSA’s) High Prices because I’ve been told that Candidates who have ignored these causes are now making them their Battle Cry - They are welcome because we can use all the help we can get… However, if they do not understand the facts and mission they can make bad matters worse.

Just saying things are getting worse is a blatant understatement but this Snap Election is both a Warning and Test of the Political maturity of our People, especially when some of our Youth are still being taught and still learning how to hate themselves… Consequently, Leaders are taking away their Destiny and leaving them nothing but the great unknown – not in the next life but in this one.

We are still taught to be ashamed of ourselves so we are hell bent on replacing our own Traditional values with American standards - even though History show these to be failures… In the process we are screwing up our Education System and pushing our Children Backwards with leaders who think it is okay for our High School Graduates to aspire to sweeping Roads and raking Beaches.

Read, Research & Reason rather than become Victims of Imaginary Problems:

No wonder they joined in having our Children believe Charlie-Charlie is some International Latino Child Demon – As a result instead of reading and researching on YouTube or Google they are quick to send misguided Preachers to harass impressible children; thus moving it from bad to worse… Aren’t you concerned when our Children are led by those choosing ignorance over knowledge?

The feeble minded will always regard folly as wisdom but this is the 21st Century when we should be moving forward and not backward… Whatever the case, our Children are ultimately responsible for their own Children and if we gravitate towards nonsense and keep beating them with 18th Century idiot Sticks we will not only wreck their lives but the lives of their Children and Grandchildren.

Never accept becoming Strangers in your own Home:

In the end, External Forces become in control of our Internal Affairs as we have seen happen for decades when this or that Government signs Foreign Deals and Documents - While we may wish for better days, hope is fading fast and more and more burdens placed on our backs – these include a Bad Public Health System and Cruise Ship Development slated to become ‘Seagull Guano City’.

We should brace ourselves from now because in less than 1-week our People will swap 7-months for 4-years and sign a promissory note to become worse off than we are Today… If we fail to help ourselves and others then our children and their children will become mere Strangers and Sufferers in their own Homes – Even those who think they have will lose it and the 'have-nots' will never get.

Although I have clearly stated my reasons for boycotting the Entire Snap Election, Persons still insist on asking me who I am backing and some seem dissatisfied when I say that my support is for the People - Think about it; whatever happens they are the ones to be most affected… At the same time it would be Poetic Justice if the Present Government loses this Snap Election.
