Fire them all
You do not have to pick from this bunch of politicians to find your leaders. You have 1.3 million choices, exercise them.
Your vote is what keeps them hanging around making a mess of things. If you looked around T&T and analysed the return we got for our spend you would be so disgusted, you would want to fire each and every last one of them.
When you realise that a 259 (to date) murder count is too ridiculous for words, you would want to fire every last one of them.
When you walk around the constituencies and see the lack of development based on the billions spent, you would want to fire each and every last one of them.
If you had to take one of your loved ones to one of our medical institutions only to watch them die due to non-existent or poor care, you would want to fire each and every one of them.
When you realise that the OVERWHELMING majority of wealthy people in this country got there by either illegal, immoral or unethical means, you would want to fire every politician that allowed this to happen.
So do it.
Forget the hollow noise of the paid supporters, exercise YOUR right to choose, and either make yourself available to serve if you can, but support all the new faces especially the independents who are going to make themselves available.
Send a very clear message as to what you demand from your public servants and when election time comes around, all of those who were complicit, incompetent or in any way responsible for this sad state of affairs we of this beautiful rich country find ourselves in, fire them. Fire them all.
