KEEPING CIIr. CHARLES BRUMSKINE HONEST

AN OPEN LETTER TO CIIr. CHARLES BRUMSKINE

DEAR CIIr. BRUMSKINE

The statement made by you and/or Liberty Party’s staff via (frontpageafrica.com) on October 13, 2010, is absurd and should be retracted immediately because it’s not an example of good Leadership, especially one who represents a political party in Liberia. You said, “The President’s office asked Cllr. Brumksine to renovate schools, build roads and provide safe drinking water for Liberians or point to one major construction project he has completed for the Liberian people. It is obvious that if the Sirleaf administration was not so corrupt, and the tax dollars were used for the benefit of the people of Liberia, the government would not have to be asking a private citizen to undertake public projects for which the people have already paid for through their tax dollars Of course, any good government would know that it is not the responsibility of oppositions or non-ruling parties to construct roads, bridges and renovate public school buildings. The Liberian people and businesses are not paying taxes to Liberty Party or Cllr. Charles Brumskine. Cllr. Brumskine doesn’t control the budgets of Ministries of Public works and Education. Stop the stealing in government, reduce government expenditure—for example, stop buying US$75,000.00 SUV’s for government ministers and the government would have money to provide for the average Liberian.”

Cllr. Charles Brumskine, please be informed that private citizens should help their government undertake public projects. In addition, it’s not wrong for the government to call upon its citizens to help the most vulnerable in the communities. What makes a safer, stronger and prouder nation is when all its good men and women come together to work for a common cause. Building homes for the homeless; empowering the powerless; providing quality education and healthcare for our children, including the youth and our seniors. Today, my questions to you (Cllr. Charles Brumksine) are:

Do you love Liberia?

If the answer above is no, than your statement above is right therefore it should not be retracted but if the answer is yes, than the above statement should be retracted because it does not represent the love you have for your country and the masses—neither does it represent the ideology of Liberty Party in Liberia. This is not good leadership, especially not from a person who wants to LEAD LIBERIA.

Do you want to help your people?

If the answer above is no, than your statement above is right therefore it should not be retracted but if the answer is yes, than the above statement should be retracted immediately because it does not represent the love you have for your country and the masses—neither does it represent the ideology of Liberty Party in Liberia. This is not good leadership, especially not from a person who wants to LEAD LIBERIA.

Just because the Liberian people are not paying taxes to Liberty Party or Cllr. Charles Brumskine, does not mean that the Liberty Party and/or Cllr. Charles Brumskine cannot help the country and/or the people they claimed to be fighting for. It is absurd that you claimed to love Liberia and the masses but you are not willing to make sacrifices for the people because you say the government is responsible for that. It is understandable that the government is responsible for building schools and health facilities, including providing the basic necessities of life. However, if the government is not responsible enough to do these things—Cllr. Brumskine, Are you trying to tell the Liberian people that if their government does not provide food, water, education, etc. you (Cllr. Brumskine) will not help to alleviate the poverty ordinary people are faced with day-to-day? If this is the leadership you are bringing to the table, I am sorry to say that Liberia needs a leadership that is different from yours. Liberia needs a leadership that says even when the government refuses to do the (RIGHT THING). A LEADERSHIP THAT SAYS (I WILL DO THE RIGHT THING) which is to help my people and uplift the land, just as many Liberians are during today.

The young and old are joining hands together in Liberia and around the world with the mission of educating, empowering; building schools, providing clean drinking water; free healthcare, technology and women empowerment programs but Liberian’s Presidential Candidate Cllr. Charles Brumskine says, “The people are not pay taxes to him and his party” therefore he cannot help to renovate schools, build roads and provide safe drinking water for Liberians across Liberia. OH! But you claimed to love Liberia and the masses. Cllr. Brumskine, for the record I want you to know that this is not a good example for the many young people across the world who are laboring day and night to contribute to their beloved country. Cllr. Brumskine, for the record I want you to know that this is not a good example for a ordinary Liberian like me who puts 10% of his monthly income aside just to provide free technology program for the young people in Liberia. Cllr. Brumskine, for the record I want you to know that this is not a good example for a ordinary Liberian like me who started LEAD Liberia, a non-partisan political organization with the aim of engaging, educating and empowering the Liberian people. Cllr. Brumskine, for the record I want you to know that this is not a good example for a ordinary Liberian like me who started United Liberian Way, with the aim of providing technology classes to high school and university students. Cllr. Charles Brumskine, Liberia needs a leadership that is different from yours.

Thank you and May God bless the Republic of Liberia.
