Response to Re: Sam Basil is quickly becoming the fool-what happened to him?
Meri Wau, I noted some of your points in this posting and smiled to myself.
My people have urged me to contest the elections also and I went home for the last 10 days. I had people roll up all day and night. Some where genuine and wanted to support me for what I could to for the province.
But others simply came and asked me for money in order to ensure their support. I refused to entertain them. In fact, I walked away from one group because it upset me so much that people could see me as just another way to get money or food.
I have now left the province and am sitting here wondering whether it is really worth it quitting my job and then subjecting myself to become father xmas to my people.
I believe in working hard to earn your keep, I do not think that we should get things for free but I am finding that around 40% of the electorate actually believe that if they vote for you, they are making you rich and hence you need to pay your way in!
God help us all!
