Polls shows 80% of viewers do not feel safe in this country

There was a bundle of five questions in our last poll, the first being: Are you happy in Belize? The results were close with fifty-one percent of voters saying yes and forty-nine percent saying no. Do you feel safe in Belize? That was second in the series of questions and it had the widest margin in the responses. An alarming eighty percent of the persons who voted say they do not feel safe in this country, while only twenty percent said yes. Next we asked: Do you live a better life than your parents in Belize? That was another close poll and the votes were split fifty-five to forty-five percent with the majority saying no. The fourth question took it a step further, asking: Do you think your children, when they grow up, will live a better life than you in Belize? Again the majority of voters, seventy-three percent, said no and the remaining twenty-seven percent are optimistic that life will be better for their kids. Finally, we asked whether viewers believe they will be taken care of in their old age in Belize. A mere twenty-five percent voted yes, while seventy-five percent said no. One of the more impassioned comments on our blog read that “everything is in the drain in this country, every aspect of life is worst than ever before. This is the worse Belize has ever been in the history of our nation.”

    Even if these polls were true/////// please do not blame government. WE the people have the power. we vote. we put them there….. We have the power to get them out!! Belizeans need to stop being lazy and get up and take back the country before we loose it to outsiders..Wake up…. they are coming in and staying….. and growing….. and slowly will be the majority. They work….. they form communities, and they are organized. Belizeans are too damn lazy. Do what needs to be done.WE need foreign investments…. namely tourists…. Money.Get the old heads out of government….. they are of the past. They only want the best for their families and friends. At this rate….. violent crime will dictate our change. The truth is there is no competent people in belize to run as leaders..SOMEONE ONCE SAID( Belize is like a big village)

    Things will only get worse here until the people revolt and throw the rascals out — we have institutional corruption, going back to how Belizean society evolved and the obscenity of the tradition of “First Belizeans.”

    We need to start over, ENFORCE the concept that no man is above the law, and all people are equal before the law.

    And penalize corruption the same as treason — whicvh it is, in another form.
