Go out and vote

Tomorrow is election day and I just wanted to ad some thoughts after observing what has been happening over the past few weeks. I have observed the accusations and the fanatical way in which our young persons in particular have approached our politics, and am not feeling good about our youth.

I am not speaking particularly about the candidates but rather the supporters, who when I look at the FB posts and comments I find it disheartening as the comments are really not about the issues but the attacking of personalities. When will we get away from this sort of politics. Maybe I am idealistic but I believe that Jamaica deserves better than this.

My message to everyone is that you should all go out and vote, as it is not only the most fundamental democratic right that our forefathers gave their lives for in some instances, but is also a responsibility to your country. Anyone who ignored this responsibility and either didn’t enumerate or doesn’t plan to vote I think it is a betrayal to democracy.

I would never tell anyone who they should vote for, and do not want to have a conversation on that, so if there are any comments on this post then please do not introduce any tribalistic views. They will be ignored but I would love any comments on the issues, which I will entertain that discussion going into tomorrow if I can help to clear up any thoughts anyone has.

When you have privately thought about the issues please go out and vote, as it is a responsibility we have to our country. And vote on what you think is best for you and your country.

I personally am tired of the tribalistic approach, as whichever party forms government at the end of the day it is our government if we call ourselves Jamaicans and whoever is elected government on Thursday should get the support of everyone because I do not know of any part of Jamaica that will sink while the other part stays afloat.

The competitive nature of election is good because it helps to preserve our democracy but when it is over we need to move forward as one country, and make for a better place to live for all.

Too many of our peers - persons I ask - haven't even been enumerated. After the elections I would encourage every person who still does not have a vote to visit an EOJ office and register yourself to vote.

EDUCATION DENNIS........OUR ONLY HOPE.....
As to when the youth you speak off start looking at the issues and the performance of the candidates over a protracted period.......may not happen in our lifetime....But if we can Educate them NOW....the future stands a chance.

Robert said...

I agree, we need to be objective in our approach. I have seen small positive changes over the years but as you said Dennis, my greatest concern is that in some of the opinions of the youth, and the character references, we have not broken the cycle. I hope to live to see this one day.

As the name suggests, natural bodybuilding is naturally to build one's body. Just make sure that whatever routine you decide on that you do it on a regular basis so you can achieve the best results. Not only can an elliptical build muscle, but it will also help you burn calories and fat.

Its like you learn my thoughts! You seem to understand a lot approximately
this, such as you wrote the guide in it or something.
I think that you simply can do with a few p.c. to force the message house a bit,
but instead of that, this is excellent blog. An excellent read.

I'll certainly be back.

Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work
due to no back up. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?
