I reject all politicians

THE EDITOR, Sir:

For a person who will not vote, I wish to state my points about some issues. On the other hand, I do not know if I am viewed as undecided.

1. The issue about the debate is a money-making thing for those of interest and to those who are squealing about it. So to hell with the debate!

2. If I choose to vote and the debate doesn't take place, it won't change my choice.

3. The Jamaica Labour Party's (JLP) 10-Point Plan does not impress me. I will never forget 2007-2011. I took a chance and voted for you, and it turned out to be my biggest mistake. I was fed up with the People's National Party, but it was better that I had stuck to the evil I knew. It's you, the JLP, that has stopped me from voting. I had trusted you with your promises then, but when you won, you said the PNP left the economy in a mess. This excuse I will hear again if you win.

3. Regarding the PNP, I am just done with you. You tricked us in 2011 about it being young people's time. You pushed up the youngsters to win constituency seats then allowed the old dinosaurs to hold sway. What do those dinosaurs have to offer? They are not the future. I do not like that the bright youths have been set aside.

4. I notice the church and other self-proclaimed righteous fanatics being unduly involved in politics. No wonder Psalm 1:1-2 said blessed is the man who stands not in the way of sinners. When Dwayne Vaz sang a Kartel song, Peter Bunting uttered the word 'John crow', and Dwayne Crawford said "dutty Labourites", they were criticised, yet Andrew Holness' "hop off my fender, nasty nayga" is deemed OK. Bunch of hypocrites you all are!

I reject politicians. I am of the 40 per cent. JLP and PNP, I reject you!

F.M.
