We Deserve Better Than This

Dear Source:
I think that it's time for the people of all four Virgin Islands to just say "no more." We have given too many idiotic individuals too much power and way too much money in trying to create a Constitution draft that has yet to be proffered. Are we this passive that we are not rising up in anger over this "schupidness?" I for one would like the Governor (or whoever is in charge of this Crucian confusion) to demand every red cent back from the most disruptive and non-productive of the bunch. You know who they are. I know who they are. Me? I have to actually work for a living as so many other people do. I would love to get paid to jet off to a different island and come back after eight hours with nothing to show for my day but a lot of hot air. Unfortunately, I am not popular enough to get that many votes to rob my people blind. We deserve better. The problem is, that we have been led down wrong paths for so long, that most of us don't even realize that we do deserve better. This disgusts me.
