Pride In Ingraham

EDITOR, The Tribune

JUST a thought: As reality sinks in and we reflect on the effects of the non voters, DNA voters and the "sold out" voters, had in the outcome of the 2012 general election, one can see that with their "help", our country lost a unique opportunity to move forward and out of this third world existance.

In trifling around with our right to vote, it was somehow forgotten by many that we were supposed to choose a government, not a celebrity, to run our Bahamas, and so consequently we lost our most worthy leader. In accordance with our history, a nation of pirates, we traded him in for fools gold. Which left him no other choice but to depart with honour, after having fought for us as if we were a great catch. Mr Ingraham must know in his heart, that he did give his all to our country, even though it didn't seem to matter in the minds of the masses.

As the curtain closes on this "world's stage" and the actors retreat, we are left with a sense of puzzlement. Wondering if perhaps there should have been an alternant ending. Some may go so far as to say "a do over". The fact is we can't. We will have another opportunity to vote in five years, but we will never have another leader like Mr Hubert Alexander Ingraham.

Thank you, Mr Ingraham, for your love of this, our great Bahamaland.

Proud to be Bahamian.

I don't know about "never". To use that word is to write off untold numbers of future Bahamians who will have the responsiblity for governing this country in time to come. Now, perhaps you can say "never" again in your lifetime...

In a democracy a person have the rights to vote for who they want to vote for, so I don't understand most of your editorial other than it is partisan and you voice your opinion and would rather be in a country where others don't have that right.

Agree. PM Ingraham's great legacy speaks for itself. The best. We never know what we had until we no longer have it.

Sure, sure PM Ingraham - did some good and did some bad! He is human like anyone else. Laotzu 680BC said - the sage that does the most good does the most bad - what he did not say…, that is equally true, is - the sage that does the most bad does the most good. However, we know that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely, not only did Ingraham demonstrated that, but so does others too! Arrogance in the land without right is not what politicians or anyone should do either.
