LETTER: Bolans Villagers Need To Use Their Brain In Politics

George/Wayne Mariette photo


Are there things done that has significant impact on the constituency of St. Mary’s South because of the unique and powerful situation the voters are in at this time?

Villages like Bolans within that constituency should have used the upcoming election as leverage to get major things done.

Is the police precinct done?

Is the clinic operating?

Are there more jobs within the communities of St. Mary’s South?

Are there more police officers patrolling day and night in Bolans?

There are no other constituency that has such advantage to make politicians (UPP, DNA, ABLP, etcetera) do what they need than those villages in St. Mary’s South Parish, you have so much leverage, but you are so focused on being loyal to your party than being loyal to progress and achievement that you do not understand you should be loyal to who best serve your personal, family, community and nation’s development and growth.

Use your advantageous bi-election strength and get things done.

That was all I tried to teach my family who rejected this strategy ignorantly. This opportunity may never come again.

Who is currently representing St. MARY’S Parish, South, since there is no Minister in Parliament? There is to be a by-election soon to elect one.

When your party brings in a former UPP member that secured your ABLP party loss, and the ABLP is then telling you to vote for this person, do you not see that as an opportunity to say, okay I could vote for him as you wish, as a recent former UPP member, who was against us, ABLP voters, and supporters, but to convince us (locals) to vote for him now, this is what we need now before any by-election vote from us:

1) More jobs in the village, facilitate local small, medium and large-scale businesses to operate, as a matter of local community and national interest, especially those businesses that has substantial impact on other industry that would enhance that other industry which encourages more job creation.

2) more police officers assigned day and night to patrol Bolans Village.

3) make more community services be available now, like police precinct, clinic, pharmacy, after-school programs and sports for children, now before the by-election.

4) fix the roads

5) decrease taxes, especially on food and drinks.

6) set up village funds ($1,000,000.00 minimum) and or allow businesses who intend to, has the resources to, and show they are credible about implementing a village fund that people within Bolans village can petition/apply for in the interest of community purposes like events, activities, grants for college/university study for Bolans village residents, medical expenses covered for Bolans Village residents, assistance with forming a business for Bolans Village residents, etcetera.

7) demand that even your personal, and family needs are met, especially those that are reasonable.

These are things people who are not idiots and ignorant would do in a situation like this the ABLP has placed Bolans Village in.

Your party is forcing upon you to accept a very recent UPP member on ABLP voters, and your response should be, okay, I can vote for him as you want me too, but these are my demands, and they are justified and must be met because of the kind of situation you are putting us in.

If I was voting, all kind of things would be justified as offer of forgiveness for me to accept this situation of ABLP telling me, family and community as an ABLP voter to vote for a recent UPP member who ensured the party I (speaking as if I was a ABLP voter, which I probably would have been, had I been legally able to vote and motivated to voted) voted for loss and base on the behavior of most of the voting public, I am sure there was some cursing of ABLP voters by those persons voting for UPP.

Again, nothing personal about Mr. Dwayne George, but the situation is so outrageous and egregious because of how recent, from the last election, and the switching of party, that it would require from intelligent and reasonable community members/people that extraordinary things must be done for the ABLP voters to accept this kind of ethical conflict within themself. Personally, I would want major things for my community, my family and myself.

I am not saying they shouldn’t or should vote in this situation but I am saying, if they are sticking with ABLP party’s decision to put someone that was recently such a major UPP member that he recently fought to be the UPP candidate, I would encourage all ABLP voters, especially those in Bolans Village, to demand for certain things for their community and family to accept what most reasonable person would consider to be outrageous and egregious acts by your ABLP party to even expect support for this decision.

There are current ABLP members who have never flipped from ABLP to UPP. They have all their life voting life been a ABLP voter, and those people deserve unique and special rewards because of the circumstances pertaining to Dwayne.

They deserve more and it is upsetting this must be said, as the politicians do not know but it is worse the actual voters do not know.

You have to force the politicians to do things you the voters want that they typically wouldn’t do for your community even though they should.

Things like facilitating a business to open that would provide jobs to villagers, such business promised to donate $100,000 to the village, donate all kind of equipment and technology to the village, and do things the government should do but have not done.

You use your leverage and demand more because of this big and outrageous pill ABLP want you to swallow. I am not saying to leave your party, ABLP or your God Gaston Brown or Samantha or Dwayne, but use your hand to your advantage.

But of course, you know, there are some ABLP members that are so not smart or intelligent (not referring to degrees and certificates from educational institutions) that they do not know their worth, their sons and daughter’s worth and when they have the advantage.

I realize now, they cannot be taught, and they should not be saved. The only way they MAY learn, is when they feel the pain of their stupidity and ignorance. You leave them to their Dunceness.

It is not about being told who to vote for, it is about strategy from a person you know made millions from using strategies in negotiating settlements, Strategies in advocating/representing clients, strategies in providing tactics in crime reduction, strategies in helping folks avoid deportation from the US legally, and strategies in National Security and Law.

It is difficult not having knowledgeable team members (family, friends, community) who are literally all incapable of realizing and participating on the strategies being use to better those same ignorant and dunce people’s life.

Do not ever be stupid enough to let a member of parliament tell you that they are not able to do things. Thar is the dumbest statement any politicians can say to you, and you believe.

They say that when they do not find you worthy of going above and beyond for. In fact, it is something they already have a pre-existing duty to do for you and it is not even going above and beyond.

No matter what board makes decision, all ministers under Antigua and Barbuda law, frankly all democratic countries, have national interest and National security laws and policies that allows elected officials to demand or encourage or order or request of any board to act in a particular way in the interest of national security or national interest. It is Lawful, reasonable and frankly, it is a prudent tool. Just expect more and know you deserve more from your politicians, from your Gastons, your Samanthas and your Dwaynes.

Trying to make your community and your family’s life better is some people’s way of helping, I know using strategies to help others are also just my way of helping.

Know your worth or at least know your son’s and your brother’s worth. Use your brain just once in politics. I cannot wait to see the result of this by-election.

My next article will be a scientific analysis of how things like what described here will impact voting in this by-election and what the result may be based on this analysis. I will be focus on science and not politics, the social science, folks’ behavior.
