‘Where there is vision, the people prosper’

Editor: On election day, the SVG electorate, on behalf of all Vincentians at home and in the Diaspora, should vote to reject the small vocal minority who continues to spew venom at our hard-working, beloved Prime Minister Dr. Ralph E. Gonsalves.

Comrade Ralph is the most visionary, compassionate, intelligent, competent and hard-working Prime Minister our nation has had since party politics was introduced. He and his Unity Labour Party have served SVG and the Caribbean well. {{more}}They have accomplished more in five short years – short years because of the many natural disasters that struck our country during their term – than ANY other leader and party in SVG and the region, including oil-rich T & T.

From health care, to education, to housing, to infrastructure development, to agriculture, to tourism, to foreign policy, to the overall economic development of the country, Comrade and his government have performed magnificently.

Surely they have made mistakes. Surely I disagree with a few of their policies. But it would be malicious, dishonest and UNGODLY for any right-thinking Vincentian to say the ULP has not been very good for SVG.

Vincentians should dismiss as self-seekers, the few with personal agendas and jealousy for the Comrade, because of his success in every area of life. The voters of SVG should not allow anyone to stop the rapid progress our country has made under Comrade Ralph and the ULP… and which will continue in the next five years, for the benefit of the present population and generations to come.

Say no to the to NDP and YES to continued progress and economic development of our Hairouna. Vote with a vengeance against Eustace, Lynch, Mitchell and company. Vote for St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Where there is vision, the people prosper. On December 7, vote Comrade Ralph and the ULP.
