Daniel Gerard Rouzier

I don’t mind playing politics, for politics itself is a tricky game of chess. What I cannot stand, though, is when politicians are playing backyard politics with something that could best serve the common interests of all the citizens of a nation.

I could not believe my ears when I heard on the news that some of these so-called politicians in Haiti were putting people on the trail protesting the nomination of Daniel Gerard ROUZIER as Prime Minister -an honest, decent, proven, competent and qualified Haitian man.

Some of his detractors or so-called opponents have gone as far as calling him a racist mulatto only in their attempts to dive in their class warfare or race politics which has gotten us in the quagmire we find ourselves today. This is the kind of divisive, close-minded and obsolete politics we do not need and are running away from.

No one Haitian should be submitted to a race or identity test in order to occupy a political or elected position in Haiti. I, a dark-skinned Haitian, cannot claim being more Haitian or loving Haiti more than Rouzier, a light-skinned Haitian. This is a stupid and silly argument which I am not going to lose my valuable time to get into. I leave that to these stupid and retarded Haitian politicians; stupid heads make stupid arguments.

When will these “ratdokale” politicians ever get it? We the people have spoken loud and clear (with 67+% in the last presidential election) that we don’t need you people anywhere near our political turf. Please go away! Find other hobbies to occupy your time; politics is not your forte. In fact, the accession of President Martelly to the highest office of the land can attest to that. Such choice symbolizes a solid line drawn in the sand between the past and the future.

I have seen in ROUZIER exactly what I have ever wanted to see in a Prime Minister  -youth, competence, freshness of ideas, leadership, visionary, compassion, love for Haiti and its people, discipline, toughness, a man/woman of principle, knowledge (in terms of how capitalism and the global economy work).

He is a great choice for the country -one that shows you exactly where President Martelly wants to take the country in this 21st century, in the post-Preval-Aristide era.

We -the new generation Haitians -will not sit idly letting these bozos mess up the country any further. Time has changed, so must be our politics.

I am calling on Senator Joazile, the big man running the nomination process in the legislature, to use his sense of political cleverness and astuteness and not let partisan politics blind him.

So assuming that everything is legit with ROUZIER in terms of the constitutional recommendations, for the betterment of our beloved country, he must be ratified. Politics should NOT stop him, not this time. I am urging Senator Joazile to get his troops on board and ratify the president’s choice. ROUZIER is the choice for the future.
