I have not paid a lot of attention to who represented what in the recent Belizean elections, partly because I find it difficult to not add my 2 cents worth to any debate, and this was an issue for the people of Belize.
I do have 2 comments now it’s over:
The turnout seems to have been in the 68-70% range, which is wonderful, and it seems to be that the “younger” a country is, the more involved the populace becomes. In Iraq and Afghanistan, voter turnout was over 80% despite threats of death and violence, whereas in the states a 50% is considered heavy voting: this in a country that with more entitlements than most of the world can even begin to imagine, and yet it's filled with people who can't seem to stop complaining about how much more they should get!
Any time is see a phrase like landslide victory over leftist PUP (Marty post #266895, last night) I feel good about the free electoral process (as I would had the incumbents been ultra right)
As I stated before in other posts, Freedom means different things to different people.
It's rarely rocket science, it's usually just math: then again if you can't do the math.......
