Inked finger dilemma

Tuesday, June 03, 2014

Dear Editor,

Like most young promising Jamaicans I was born into a political party. Yes, I was born into one as I took on the party my family was affiliated with and supported. It was not until I became an adult that I realised the consequences of being associated to a colour because of family line and I found myself independently analysing both parties sieving through the available facts using my own mental capacity to decide which party was really the right party to vote for in the upcoming elections.

I found myself badly disappointed when I weighed both sides and realised that I could not find any clearly defined differences between them. This deflated my anticipation to being finally enumerated.

My conclusion is that being born into a party may not be so bad after all. When you evaluate both sides there isn't any difference in how the country's business is run and you are basically left to just pick a colour and stick to it.

How can succh a country move forward?

Let's just say I will still get my name on the voters' list, however my biggest decision when it is time to "ink" is which party to chuck and thrash and which party to trust. That is my dilemma.
