Why election now?

is haiti ready to have an election so soon after that big disaster.

I think President Preval should stay for one more term so the people can focus on rebuild haiti and take their time to choose a right leadership.Beside, I do understand that Wyclef truly love his country.

Miggy, I believe that you take this too seriously.

The blog was not a national threat.

It was merely suggested that if Wyclef is running for presidency and if hot heads are willing to vote for him solely on popularity, then, us as true Haitians might have to look for other options.

Why are so judgmental of me liking Wyclef.

Please open your mind.

I judge Wyclef by his ACTIONS, not by his only words.

Everyone has their own process of transformation.

It does not matter how they exhibit that.

Question yourself.

What kind of transformation have you gone through in the past in your life. Did you exhibit it and how?

Brother I am sure you did?

Don't you people understand Wyclef Jean?

Did you think he was wearing the Haitian flag for nothing?

Did not you get the symbol of him lying in the coffin?

Haiti is too much in crisis to play popularity contest with Wyclef Jean. If Charles Henry Baker does not win the presidency, there is no hope for Haiti.

I would then suggest that some Haitians pack their bags to leave Haiti and TO NEVER LOOK BACK.
A word of advice to Haitians abroad to ignore Haiti as a lot of us are starting to
