The Constitution that numerous delegates are so proud to have finished is an example of a document better suited to have been written in the 1850s. Assigning special rights and financial privileges to certain groups of people and denying voting rights to others is a prime example of past injustices in society. The audacity of delegates to ignore legal advice and the wishes of those that elected them is astounding. The last minute call to pass the document, in all its infamy, just so they have "something to show for their two years of wasted money and time", is criminal. To submit such a socially, legally and ethically flawed document to anyone is humiliating to our community.
Maybe the delegates that continued on this flawed course will have second thoughts, when it comes back with a huge red X marked on it. Also, try to divide the community, and you will continue to fail. The majority of Virgin Island citizens are working together on a daily basis in our community to improve the lives of all. We are not working for any select group, but for the good of all. We are together and you can't separate us.
