We The People

Thank god for the Governor because the delegates to the convention are crazy. I have stayed out of politics to this point but the "Constitution" that the convention passed and sent to the Governor was and is severely flawed. He said it better than I ever could.

"Surely no one should expect me - one of only three African-American governors in our nation and, by the way, a native and ancestral Virgin Islander - to forward a proposed constitution that is clearly unconstitutional to our nation's first African-American president, who happens to also be a constitutional scholar and a former law professor," deJongh said. "A man, incidentally, who even though he has been elected to our nation's highest office, would be ineligible to run for governor or lieutenant governor of this U.S. territory no matter how many years he lived here under the terms of this proposed draft."

Kudos to the Governor to have the guts to throw this rag in the trash and force the "Carnival" to start over.
