It is unfortunate that things have progressed as they have regarding the Beal deal. However, If proper protocol had been followed and the people had the chance to vote first, the Beal deal might have been a go.
It appears the people are tired of government making decisions that they are regretting down the road. Let the people decide and vote, then THEY must take responsibility for the outcome, instead of justifiably blaming the government who removed all rights.
The people are merely revolting against an administration that has followed the footsteps of its predecessors by not allowing them to be a part of the democratic process. The Beal deal quite possibly might have been the "right thing" for the people of the island; however when we do not adhere to established protocol, we can look to reap a whirlwind every time.
