Haitian Politics, Who do you believe?

While the Haitian media is broadcasting a country in crisis, politically speaking, the U.S. Ambassador in Port-au-Prince is observing progress in Haiti.

So... Who do you believe?

How do you think Haiti, as a whole, is doing?

Are we making progress? Or... Is Haiti a huge mess?

Senators are screaming that both president Martelly and Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe should resign over election issues, in the mean time, President Martelly is planning his 25th "Sweet Micky"Anniversary fundraiser, and U.S. Ambassador, Pamela White, is praising the progress in Haiti, in areas such as agriculture, health, manufacturing, and job creation.

So... Do you think Haiti is a country in CRISIS? or do you think Haiti is making progress?

Haiti is in progress.

Give people a reason to come to Haiti, just like the other islands when it comes to tourism $$$...

Making the people take pride in where they live, which proves to be the hardest part. Already, some are paying people to break the brand new lights that light up the city. My sister got kidnapped, that was a nightmare...

Victoria, I think it is time for us Haitians to start asking ourselves 'What can we do for our country, not what the country can do for us'.

The mentality is that we expect our govt. to feed, dress us up and everything.

Haiti is not socialist nor communism, hence the old adage...'Aide toi et le ciel t'aidera'.

What questions are you asking?

Inflation is rampant in the US too; this is relative to the times.

I live here and have for 35 years; yes Martelly/Lamothe are making incredible progress.

Homes have been built, roads, schools, hotel, wharfs.

But most importantly we have SECURITY something we did not have for decades under the narco cleptocracy since Duvalier fell! Parliament I'd freaked b/c they want a piece of the action/payoffs and there just isn't enough to pad their pockets AND fix

In more than 3 1/2 years since the earthquake?

Not one historic building--other than the Hotel Florita--has been repaired by the government, or, to the best of my knowledge, anything been repaired through a low-interest loan--by either the public or private sector.

(This does not include work started on the Marie by a Spanish governmental corporation.) And some of the historic building that could have been repaired have suffered a great deal more harm from the elements.

Hi Jacques,

My response was not meant to be an investigative journalist report.

It was extremely personal.

When women I know can't make enough money in the marketplace to feed their kids every day, that's what I pay attention to. As for the political aspect, I stand by my comments based on reliable information, not just the teledjol.

But thanks for

Dear Victoria :

Life was never cheap in Haiti, but they forgot to tell you that it is cheaper than it was 3 years ago though still hard and costly, hence 'la vi a toujou cher'.

Also, depend on the sample of the population that you surveyed.

It's going to be a long time to come before we can really see what has done in Haiti, but I'm so happy with what already done security

Investors are going there a lot more than in the past only that is a big steps forward for the country.

PLEASE LETS KEEP IT MOVING WITH THAT WE'LL GET THERE.
