My beloved,

Yes, you have indeed asked me that question before, and thank you for the vote of confidence you put in me.

I know well that I would be the best president Haiti ever known.

You would be without a doudt in my government and would give you the choice to pick your own post where you feel more comfortable in. I don't want to brag but I know quite of bit about politics.

But I agree with you 100% because I don't think that I would live to swear in office due to the rough edges of my straight shooter style.

After all, that's what got me to flee Haiti.

That was the time when I was very critical of the government and I wasn't afraid to speak my mind whenever and whereever I could.

Believe me when I say that I was much worse.

People keep getting my attention to it which compelled me to work on it, but I acknowledge that I still have a long way to go.

Politics, however, has always been my biggest passion in life. I love it and I am confident that I can do a very good job helping my country, Haiti, going forward.

Linda, Linda, Linda, my beloved, where did you get the idea from that I was living in Haiti?

No, I live in the United States in upstate New York. There are very few Haitians living here.

Linda, I don't think I can survive Haitian politics.

To come from the diaspora running for public office in Haiti, the first thing they would do to kill your capaign even before it gets off the ground is labeling you as "naturalized citizen, a stranger, a foreigner" and you know how that plays in Haiti.

As we all know very well that the government is against the diaspora, Haitians back home hate the diaspora, and naturalized and Haitians with green cards in the diaspora don't seem to get along that well either.

So coming from the diaspora to run for public office in Haiti is almost an impossible proposition.

Am I talking straight out of my, "you know where"?
