    I see such a tremendous difference for the good of Belize – for the good of the little people. Trial Farm area of OW – living through the last few rainy seasons – they were up to their knees in mud and water – now they are being helped. Their area is being cleaned up and drains dug for the water to have some place to drain to.

    I see the basic structure of Belize being “shored up” strengthened after YEARS of neglect by the PUP –

    the road being repaired all the way to San Lazaro, the many men who are now with dignity because they are working on that road crew. As I said, I see much good being done now –
    when the last administration talked much – but did little.

    People of Belize need to look around – you will see that much was being done for the people of Belize even last year. Yes – this administration IS doing a good job!

    IF YOU CAN ANSWER YES TO ALL MY QUESTIONS THEN YES THEY SHOULD.
    1. DID THEY WIN THE LST GEN ELECTION BY GAINING 60% OF THE POPULAR VOTE?
    2. HAVE THEY DELIVERED ON 50% OF THEIR MANIFESTO PROMISES?
    3. HAS FOREIGN RELATIONS IMPROVED UNDER THEIR WATCH?
    4. HAVE THEY ATTRACTED AT LEAST 50 MILLION US$ IN FOREIGN INVESTMENT DURING THEIR TERM?
    5. HAS UNEMPLOYMENT AND COST OF LIVING DECREASED SINCE THEY TOOK OFFICE?
    6. HAVE THEY BEEN ACCOUNTABLE & TRANSPARENT WITH THEIR PERSONAL FINANCES AT ANY TIME RECENTLY?
    7. HAS ACCESS TO DIALOG, JUSTICE, LEGAL AID, AND CRIME PREVENTION IMPROVED WITH THIS GOVT.? THERE ARE MENY OTHER QUESTIONS BUT THESE TOUCH THE FOUNDATION OF GOVERNMENT 101. SO PLEASE HAVE THE NATION ANSWER ME. THANKS.

    WHAT DID THEY DO TO DESERVE A SECOND TERM???????????

  5. cayobway says:

    HELL NO!!!!, The country of belize needs to move foward, too much dumb actions has gone on, it is high time to stop allowing barrow and his bunch of dumb@$$ to ruin what is left of the jewel, belize need to move away from the monopoly of the boots and barrow bs.

  6. Montero says:

    Rachel, you obviously live in the area where the biggest crook in Belize lives, and he will spend in his area to ensure he wins to continue to rape the rosewood and chance the poor people from PG. So while only North is getting help he forgot South, Norht and Central. All because the people dont support the UDP. So took the resources that should have been spent in East and send it all to his constituency. Vega will do all that he can to win, Rosewood, Rosewood, 20Million, 20 Millioon, crooksssss!! The family became mega millionaires! Hell No Vote Them OUt!!!!!!!!

  7. blackberry says:

    NO why a second when the first was i compiete failure.

  8. Ashley says:

    to describe the blue and the red is like seeing the difference in being greedy and being selfish.

    The Greedy one will take but he will give
    The selfish one takes but no everyone receives.

    I am not for anyone particular but seeing there is little to no choice I would take the Greedy one over the selfish one .

  9. belizeanpride says:

    i TOTALLY AGREE WITH WAHT RACHEL POSTED.
    still there might be thsoe that don’t want to accept the difference that is being done to our area in the orange walk south. for 10yrs musa talk about doing some paving for the south but he never did now barrow is doing what musa couldn’t do for 10yrs between the 4yrs term. and much more to the orange walk south.

  10. murphy says:

    no period

  11. Orange Walk East says:

    @ Rachel and Belizean pride. I am an Orange Walkeño also, and let me remind you that the paving in the south constituency was possible because the previous PUP administration lobbied for those funds, and in some cases it takes years for the funds to be disbursed. We secured the pavement of San Estevan to Progresso, but UDP Ministers took half and sent half to pave Albert St. And the miserable assistance Gapi is providing is nothing compared to the millions of dollars he has robbed this jewel in Rosewood concessions. The UDP has failed Belize. They are no good for this country. Come March 7th, we will see better days. VOTE OUT DEAN BARROW AND THE UDP!!!!

  12. dalmer says:

    I live in orange walk south and it is not the udp-dean barrow govt that is working in the orange walk-san lazaro road it is tanx to the” EUROPEAN UNION’ not dean barrow.if it was for him he wouldn’t have done nothing-yes he has done a lot,to fill his pocket and his ex-wife-his sons,cronies with our tax $$$$$$$$.but ” da fool di talk but da no fool d listen”.

  13. Santa Elena Resident says:

    Those who are praising this administration must be family members of the ministers since they are the only ones reaping the benefits while the rest of us are being raped of our dignity by these crooks in government. Just ask Rene Montero what he has done for Cayo Central over the last 4 years. NADA!!! ZERO!!! Vote them out yes. All of them!!!!!!

  14. ivan cal says:

    THE SOUTH IS WAITING FOR THE KENDAL BRIDGE TO FINISH I TINK ITS BEEN TOO LONG THAT WE HAVE WAITED,DEAN BARROW IS A LIAD,HE IS USING THE” STUPID “PEOPLE THAT ARE WITH HIM TO CONTINUE ENRICHING HIMSELF,HE TOOK OVER BTL,BEL,WASA AND WHAT HAVE WE THE PEOPLE BENEFITED?NOTING NOT EVEN A LIGHT HE HAS PUT IN DANGEROUS AREAS WHERE IS NEEDED,1 HAM WILL NOT FEED WE ANOTHER 5 YEARS OF HIM INCOMPETENCE AND CORRUPT GOVERNMENT.

  15. Belizean says:

    Full confidence in the UDP, and its as sure as can be that UDP is in for the long haul!!!

  17. Lawyer says:

    Does anyone have a clue how much money Dean, Lois, Denys, and Rodwell are making from government, Millions! Nobody is asking Dean how much they have netted, but its quite close to what Vega has made from Rosewood. Dean created the litigations to get his people wealthy, as long as there are lenghty litigations his family will continue to cream. They are all a bunch of white collar criminals. They belong in jail!

  18. NoNo says:

    The UDP administration could have done a better job if they weren’t putting poeple in high position who are so so below not qualified for the positions. they have ceo’s who knows nothing about the job they supose to do. they have students just coming out of high school holding position that needs a bachelor degree, i mean come on do you peopl want your country to be run by unproffessionals, by some really dumsy people. I dont work for the government of Belize, Thank God. i know its stupid to have a supervisor that is so fool he/she dont know to print or to load a printer. we have to much of those ceo’s and big supervisors who are not fix for the position under the udp, so they need to get out and be voted out. And the ppl who are supervised by these people should be the first to vote them out because its not fair, you have your degree u work hard for and they have nothing yet they are your superior, what the !*** is that. They dont need a second term and if by some how they win, den they need to put qualified ppl in those seats fill by shit heads.

  19. NoNo says:

    No because they have ppl in ceo positiongs and other high positions that done have the qualification muchless know to what to do. all they do is sit thier un educated @$$#$ in thier seat behind thier desk all day on face bood and dean barrow is paying them for that. While ppl who are qualified for the job cant get a job becuase of these politicaly employed ppl who are so dumsy. thats the best work to use cause its creol and everybody knows what it means.

  20. Concerned says:

    I have to laugh at all the people that look at what the current GOB hasn’t done, can anyone objectively evaluate all GOBs and determine which is better? All parties that took over GOB have done as they pleased!! No ONE, I CHALLENGE ANYONE to demonstrate otherwise. So why the immediate judgement on the present GOB??? If anyone cares to compare what has been done in these 4 years as opposed to the previous 10 years, you will realize the error of your ways.
    How many of you consider the issues? Or do you just think Blue or Red??? If you go out in the street and ask the average citizen why he would vote one way or the other all they will be able to tell you is Blue/Red is better. If you ask them why, they won’t be able to describe the issues related to their answer, that my friends is very SAD!!

  21. CEO says:

    I say no but reality is who will replace them becasue the last crowd was worse. We only have a two party system.

  22. Think Twice says:

    I agree with Concerned. We as Belizeans need to look at the real value of the person who we want to represent our constituency, we have to get pass this blue and red era. Come on Belizeans we all want the same, the best for our future and families future. I am not a politician and dont want to be but I will tell you all this. WE NEED TO THINK TWICE ABOUT WHAT IS RIGHT FOR BELIZE? I must say this, some of these Independent Candidates are very much pumped and I think would do a better job than Red or Blue. March 7th you make the right choice. Remember when they Gov of the day screw up is because we the people put then there to do it. Food for thought people.

  23. Tanya says:

    They don’t deserve another chance but to put in the PUP is worse. What about Faber teaching our kids through the Peace Corpe teaching manuals that the anus is a sexual organ? And he is proud of the HFLE manual and is so conceited. I wish we had more options in every constituency. I don’t know how to vote in Collet.

  24. Chami-Ka says:

    I invite all Belizeans to go out in the multitudes on March 7 and vote. Listen to “Let Your Vote Count” by Chami-Ka on youtube.com.

    If we dont vote – means we don’t care which translates to take what you get. We can’t complain then. Let’s keep democracy alive!!!

  25. chris says:

    No i think or maybe everybody thinks that our both governments isnt a choice to vote for again ,we just cant believe what they say.the PM is the worst leader in this world he just doesnt buy us doesnt have leadership skills ,he’s a fake completely!! change all the minster in both party make a fresh new one maybe its worth a try .PM cant run this country his law enforcement and thats the most important thing the country needs ,the country is going right back to point A when we never had independent atleast the country was better off the Brit’s,lets try the PUP again like how gave a chance to UDP like we actually wanted them in office last election

  26. rod says:

    out with this no good pm and gov. worse in the history of belize if unu want another 500 murders then unu vote fu bald head and udp hope you or one of your family members are not in that number. every aspect of life in belize has gone from bad to worse ever in the history of this country.

  27. Carlo says:

    Under the Dean Barrow Administration I would not give them another chance. Anyone other than Dean would make a better leader. He is too much of a dictator and does not like to listen to the people. We need leaders who listen not dictate what they want.

  28. Retired CEO says:

    The bottom line is no, however, we need to stop focusing on what was and demand meaningful change from whomsoever gets elected. We should not allow any governing party the pleasure of enjoying two terms in government if they can bring about some meaningful, productive, positive change whereby the nameless faceless Belizeans are the recepients of that change. Furthermore, personally, I am very disapointed with the performance of Dean Barrow and his bunch of buffoons, the once so-called ministers of Government. I believe that Mr. Barrow had a golden opportunity to become the best PM in the history of the Jewel, however, because of arrogance and his self righteousness he has failed miserably. For those reasons I am most definitely voting blue.

  29. EZ GLEnn says:

    Belize People depend to much on the government period and all they do is complain and cry yes they got ideas but the boots will never hit the ground. They don’t want change. So much talent in Belize and no way to let it shine wow.
