Rain falling everyday yet our reservoirs low. Doesn’t that tell you that not only do we not have enough reservoirs but that our management of surface water is nonsense?
Our river system was designed for some inexplicable reason to wash all our bounty of fresh rain water out to sea. Diego Martin river from the bridge at Westmoorings with a gate at the end could not only hold more water than Diego Martin could ever use, but in heavy rains could also generate electricity via the overflow to power pumps to transport the excess to underground holding tanks.
Trinidad & Tobago gets more water from the sky in a year than we could ever consume in ten or even twenty years. It is designed to fail so you buy tanks, pumps, bottled water and truck water.
All Trinidad needs to never have a water problem ever again is a proper change of government away from the PNM and UNC who are bribed through election financing in the tens of millions of dollars to keep the failed water system as is.
And the solution to water management also solves flooding.
It’s the same reason food is so expensive in this country.
PNM and UNC take bribes from food importers and pay offs to ensure farmers do not grow food.
Simple security changes to protect farms and flood mitigation to holding tanks in low lying areas would take away ALL the problems our farmers suffer, so why were they never done?
It is either the leadership of those two parties do not know how to run the country, or they take bribe money and pay offs to deliberately run it badly.
Even now after all of this mismanagement, Trinidad is still a wealthy country, but the wealth is stolen by government through fake budgets to funnel unnecessary expenses and ridiculously over priced projects to their handlers in the contract mafia in exchange for kick backs, for their share of the loot.
You live in a country where public health is not failing but deliberately mismanaged to the benefit of health care providers and drug and equipment importers.
Our police service receive billions at budget times on paper, but the police never benefit from it.
So does the fire service.
Our nation is failing deliberately because it makes money for those operating those two parties.
There is not one thing wrong or broken in this country that cannot be fixed by simple changes in how they are managed, so why would they be so?
More importantly, ask yourself if this miserable, unsafe and stressful life we all live is worth your mindless support of people who, when voted into office, do not care about you?
Want to test it?
Ask for a debate between Kamla, Keith and Phillip.
Let’s debate road and infrastructure management, flooding and water, law enforcement and fire protection, the justice system, public health, education, food production, the economy, income, money management and corruption.
If you think they know what they are doing and can defend their terms in office, put them on the spot.
I promise you after one debate not only will you kick yourself for ever trusting those people, but you would never vote PNM or UNC again.
Don’t buy cat in bag. All three of us want to run the country. Interview us together live on national TV.
I promise you the outcome will not only surprise you, it will inspire you.
And after that one debate, will not only change our politics, but in quick time change the way this country is run.
I make one simple claim.
With the existing resources we have right now, everything wrong in this country could be fixed and life could be better.
Ask Keith and Kamla if they agree.
