Trinidad and Tobago Elections 2015 – Who to Vote for


This is how we voting

THIS IS HOW WE VOTING in 2015

It is the election season in in Trinidad and Tobago once again and like Christmas of late, I just can’t seem to get into the spirit. Also like Christmas, I have only just realized there is no Santa Clause and too much ham is not good for you. A General Elections in Trinidad and Tobago gives the country hope but with the certified bunch of jokers (politicians) offering themselves to the public like a desperate  prostitute on a Friday night on the Avenue, there is little good to hope for. Tempting after a gallon of rum but deadly for your health. Still, we must exercise our civic duty and vote for, not the best party for the country but the best party for you.

Election season is a time when we must forget the past and think about our future, according to failed politicians and the political parties they represent. For me, I can’t forget the past so I think the future is mostly hopeless. But God is a Trini and loves us for our pan, jam, whine, Shark and Bake, and Ali’s Doubles. But, God and love aside we must make our finger count on Election Day so I have thought of a few issues that may sway a voter to one of the many political parties burdening the public with a choice.

Here are the issues which politicians must have a firm view on else they will be branded wishy-washy or spineless:

(1) Legalizing of marijuana

(2) Legalizing of Gay marriages

(3) Repeal of blasphemy laws

(4) Jack Warner

(5) The insanely low price of gasoline

(6) The insanely low price of electricity

(7) The insanely low price for water

(8) No land and building tax

(9) Keeping people dependent on handouts to get elected

(10) Selling shares in a political party and paying dividends in the form of government awarded contracts

(11) Board members lying about qualifications

(12) Selecting incompetent Board Members and the reappointing them

(13) Making lawyer friends rich for no good reason

(14) Science and mathematics education

(15) Scientific research

(16) The glut of ACCA, Management, MBA and LLB graduates

(17) The shortage of science, mathematics and engineering graduates from real Universities

(18) The useless Information Technology degrees from so-called higher learning institutions (UWI is the only one with a real IT degree)

(19) The intolerable light pollution situation

(20) Victimization of people who look like they from the other party

(21) RaspberryPi in schools

(22) God and atheist

(23) Shortage of affordable housing for middle income earners

(24) Middle income earners

(25) Under employment

(26) Murder, corruption and box drains

If I can think of more I will post them. Ideas from readers are also welcome.
