I believe in Trinidad and Tobago. It is a beautiful country with a wonderful and colourful history.Trinidadians and Tobagonians are great people. But i believe we can do much better: better schools, better hospitals, better road, a better way of life, a better way of handling crime, of building a modern welfare state, of equipping ourselves for a new world economy. I want Trinidad and Tobago that is one nation, with shared values and purpose, where merit comes before privilege, run for all and not for the chosen few, strong and sure of itself at home and abroad. I want a Trinidad and Tobago that does not stumble into the new millennium afraid of the future, but face it with optimisim and full of confidence.
