You can help Haiti achieves democracy

With Army Lieutenant-General Raul CÚdras and many of his colleagues long consigned to exilium, or exile, and the Haitian Army decreed inexistant thereafter, the threat today against Haiti, a small Caribbean nation with a population estimated at 8.2 million, is not from classic military dictatorship, but more forms of dictatorship of the proletariat.

The nation's long, most importantly, current political circumstances resemble a terrifying story by Lovecraft or Stoker. Its de facto president, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, is daily described as being like a character - bestial, genocidal, uncommonly totalitarian, lethal, corrupt and ludicrous - from a newer Latin America's classic dictator novel, Mario Vargas Llosa's "Feast of the Goat.")

One of the best ways to help the mountainous nation achieves democratia, or a condition of equality and respect for the individual, is by writing letters to the editors of  newspapers and magazines, particularly those in countries, or nations, with a long tradition of democracy, human rights groups the world over, and the United States of America's government of George W. Bush, whose predecessor, William "Bill" Jefferson Clinton', returned former Haitian President, Aristide, to the office of the presidency he lost in a September 1991 in military coup d'Útat, or "coup de force," as many often describe it.

We suggest that you tell them all after more than $4 billion dollars spent (economic cost) over the past seven years by the U.S. and other Western nations, and this, in the name of democracy, unfortunately Haiti remains a recurring cycle of dictatorship of the proletariat and chaos fueled by radical leftist Aristide's continuing hold on the office of the presidency, which he assumed on February 7th, 2001 after a November 26th, 2000 election. The election was so clumsily fraudulent that it eventually forced the democratic opposition, better known as the Convergence Democratique, and the international community not recognize him as a legitimate president.                                                                                                                                                                                              Your letters, which contents reflect that of those sent to the parties named above, may also be forwarded to members of the United States Congress, the French government, the Canadian government, the European Union (EU), the Organization of American States (OAS), the United Nations (UN), etc.

Background information

In 2000, a series of votes, including a November 26th presidential election, were held in Haiti. Fictive results published for the elections thereafter gave the without moral scrupules and incorrigible Aristide an absolute control of the House of Deputies. More than 80 percent of the declared victors belonged to his Lavalas (Flood) Family Party                                                                                                                                                                                              Fictive results were published as well for 27 Senate candidates, all, too, members of his party, which a great many Haitians now call the "party of death." There are reasons for this. He continues to urge supporters and party members to burn political opponents alive. Because of his gross incompetence, the number of Haitians who are now experiencing abject poverty is most likely to significantly go upward in the near future. You can fill a large hall, by U.S. standards, with narcotics barons, all members of his party, and many of them de facto senators and deputies.                                                                                                                                                                                                If history is made by men, and not just ineluctable forces, then radical leftist Aristde can claim a starring role. He achieved a monopoly in the upper house, or the senate, then caused Haiti to officially become a one-party state.                                                                                                                                                                                          Because of the pernicious situation just described above, the tiny Caribbean nation has since further posed a major threat to many infant democracies, economies and citizen's welfare, in the rest of the Americas.                                                                                                                                                                                              The most affected nation, so far, has been the U.S. Nearly all of the vessels that enter the port of Miami, in the state of Florida, have been seized by U.S. Customs for having on board narcotics as their sole cargoes.                                                                                                                                                                                               There have been a significant increase in the number of Haitians trying to illegally enter the U.S. by boat (flimsy), in search of economic liberty, in search of political liberty. As a result, more of  U.S. citizens and resident non-citizens' hard earned tax moneys have been spent by authorities to pay for the cost of feeding them, housing them, and finally repatriating them to Haiti.

You may further attend the cause of democracy in Haiti

You may further attend the cause of democracy in Haiti by forwarding them all: Our postal, e-mail and electronic journal addresses, including telephone number(s), to friends, colleagues, or organizations - also, urging them to visit our publication. Through our extraordinary ability to help people - regardless of their formal training or experience in international political affairs - understand what a totalitarian dictatorship of the far-left is all about, visitors will, hopefully, become better equipped, if needed, to help promote democracy in the Caribbean country.                                                                                                                                                                                              You may also help in this endeavor by linking us to your Web site. And reproducing, in part or in full, some of our news articles and columns for your publication will also help make this vision a reality. In so doing, Haitians will, hopefully, no longer be attached to the pernicious political culture of violence, which seems to condemn them to vegetate on the margins of civilized society. On behalf of the Haitian people "Un grand merci Ó l'avance" (Thank you in advance).

Your financial and other contributions to the cause of democracy in Haiti

Your admirable financial contribution can be U.S.$25.00 or more. A grant from you will help us pay for the cost (economic) of promoting and maintaining democracy and human rights in Haiti.  

You may otherwise support our important role in the struggle for democracy and human rights in Haiti by nominating us for an award, or a prize, with a non or monetary value.  

If your rules oblige that we formally submit an application form for a grant or nominate ourselves for an award, or a prize, please inform us of so.

An honorary degree from an institution of higher learning will not only be in recognition to our efforts in the promotion and maintenance of democracy and human rights in the Caribbean nation, that is, Haiti, but prove beneficial to the citizens of that nation as we subsequently provide them with the professional advice needed to achieve and maintain economic liberty for the first time in history, suggesting that the abject poverty they long have been forced to endure is ultimately consigned to the archives of history (multiplying effect).

We want to become your most important pupils

Let us know what you think - even if you do not share our views. Write us, telephone us, or send us an electronic message with your opinion - even if you attack us with the same zeal Demosthenes attacked the political ambitions of Philip of Macedon. Still, your opinion will, hopefully, help advance the struggle for a democratic Haiti. So, too, we might become your most important pupils, as Plato, who established the Socratic tradition of instruction in his school, the Academy, was Socrates'.

A final message
