Continued Wrongs Done on Our Country
A travesty continues in the FSM. Congress made a law March of 2016 that approves for plebiscite on the issue of repealing Article III, Section 3 of the FSM Constitution, permitting dual citizenship. Funds were appropriated for education of the voters of the matter. Months, weeks, days, day of election and even one day after, Pohnpei voters tell me that they did not understand the matter on "Yes" or "No" vote. FSM and the four states invested thousands of dollars and manpower to visit outside of the four states even sending government attorneys getting paid $38,000 to $42,000 to $52,000 annually to conduct town hall meetings with Micronesians throughout the U.S. Those trips earned these government officials OnePass/MilePlus points for free personal trips and perks on United Clubs throughout U.S., TA money while staying with family and the result was to educate only about 5% of voters while biased radio programs that have no feedback on question tried to tackle the around 95% here in Pohnpei, Chuuk, Kosrae and Yap. All indicators show that "Yes" won in Pohnpei but I doubt that we have the 75% threshold. The only reason again is lack of understanding. We continue to get wronged and we turn around and thank them so-called leaders for it. Wake up people.
