island politics

People from the island and its neighboring islands are very alive nowadays. In spite of the very trying life they are in, or we are in, everybody seems to be in the go. There is a big hush! its election time! Money is expected to be floating everywhere. Election means money, It is endemic, it runs in the veins of the people. Some are trying to ascertain who started it all.
Was it the voters who asked first? or was it the politicians who bought the people first? I would say that this phenomenon started more than sixty years ago.

Mind you most of the people from these islands are very intelligent people, they know that they are being fooled by these politicians. But it is so amazing because after all the bright thinking that they do, they still end up being in the bag of these politicians.

Does it mean that the politicians are far more brilliant than the voters? Of course not. It is self interest, the thought of oneself alone, they are responsible to themselves only and to no one else.

But there is always hope, yes beyond those clouds is a light of hope.
