    Yes I agree with 11:52 ! Buying your votes is not good and we all know it..Is the future worth a stove? come on guys get real and stop protestuting our country’s future.  VOTES ARE NOT FOR SELLING and mine can’t be bought…I can get myown and so can you..stop being lazy WB and get your own and leave the corruption behind.  All you have to do is look to the east to see what corruption brings and ask yourself why we ae half way there..be real don’t sell the vote and if they buy it vote the other way…If you keep selling it..it is only a matter of time before you have some thugs and politicans teaming up to force you to sell your vote…come on they are killing people for drug money already so what make you think they can’t firgure out how to make money by threating to kill or hurt you it is a logical step for anyone to take.  Our political system is closer to that of our neighbors to the East then to the ones in the North.  Our you can hide from the thugs in your stove in a couple years

    Yep, and we all heard the leader of the opposition Mckeeva Bush on the Rooster Talk show over a year ago comment that he was very good friends with Micheal Misick and was supportive of what he was doing with the Turks and Caicos.  All you have to do to see the trend is to google the man and see all that he did and tried to do before the rug was pulled from under him.  Those same trends were reflected down hear over four years ago.  So birds of a feather flock together. 

    If the people of the Cayman Islands think that the UK can’t do to us what they are planning to do to Turks & Caicos well we certainly have another thing onour plates to chew the fat on.

    Come on Caymanians wake up and see that we are only fooling ourselves with all that is going on.

    I am entirely grateful to the exposure that Misick has recevied for his corruption, now is the time for us to start exposing our own.  Hopefully the millions we are spending on this met investigation they will soon come to a head or bankrupt us in the process.

    Caymanians go to the poles and vote for the future, a better one not the past that is crippling us and we all know which government broke both our feet and has left us for the past four years trying to nurse it back to health.

    Stick with the monsters you know.


    thanks for letting me voice my opinion on this matter.
