Pass on to the president

Mr. President it will be an embarrassment to our country to let other countries build our palace with their own funds.

Yes, we may need their expertise but not their money.

Run or running a successful business, and being a nice decent human being doesn't mean you can run a government.

Government is not a business, a company, a corporation and cannot run as such.

Government is an institution intety whose sole function is to "protect and to serve." However, government has the right to impose taxes on the services that it provides to its citizens in order to generate capital for its survival and in order to sustain.

I think, he will be the best for the position even they say, he doesn t know nothing about politic.

I prefare to think our chance with him, because Preval and Aristid had power for 20 years did not do anything either, they been used the poor people like garbage no light, no school, no security no hospital no respect for us all over the world Ego only I do not see any different between who know, who do not know. now, Haiti need us it's time to prouve we love our self and our country Haiti cheri, ( union fait la force ) let's us do it together, stop be

It's important to make people aware of these things.

He is an exceptional human being, and a very succesful businessman.

He is honest and true. The least anyone needs to worry about is how many years he has or hasn't worked in politics.

The less stained, the

Mr. Martelly knows just enough about Mr. Rouzier to know he is a good soul. He has run businesses, and is the President of Food for the Poor. He does this through sacrifice and countless hours of hard work. Pleasedo not be skeptical or mistaken, Mr. Rouzier is not a "family business quick pick", he is the person that sees Haiti for what it is, and for what it can

I really do not know anything about Mr Rouzier.

My thinking is: you do not need to be a political figure to do good for your country.Many of us living in the Diaspora do not have political experiences but are willing to lend an helping hand toward the reconstruction of our country.Lets borrow President Obama's famous slogan "WE CAN DO IT, AND YES, WE WILL.Our new president is faced with many issues.

His plate is full and needs help to digest its contents.Lets us support his choice.
