On Monday December 2, the Local Government Elections of Trinidad and Tobago will be held.
Parties will go head to head, battling against each other, contesting for various seats, in order to win. People of this nation will either vote or stay home, but whatever they do, it will affect the result of the election. Unfortunately for their sake, it will not affect the aftermath of the election, for no matter who becomes victorious in these rounds, the ending always remains the same, nothing changes.
I am not trying to give a pessimistic point of view; it is the honest truth.
When elections take place, whether local or general, the people of our nation do not vote for parties based on them being the best of the best. T&T votes based on who is the best of the worst.
The victor will then be crowned, and the usual situations will continue. This is because a politician’s goal is not secured by the nation’s cry. A politician campaigns to win, and once that result is secured, his/her real goal is achieved.
For too long, we have tried to make sense out of nonsense. We have taken medication from people that want us to remain sick and we have silenced our voices before we could even shout.
It is useless to cry out to politicians whose ears are deaf to their nation’s cry, but if we could raise a loud roar together in harmony, not even they can remain unmoved. T&T, do not be treated for less, when you are worth so much more.
Remember our motto; together we aspire, together we achieve.
