THE NOOSE IS TIGHTNING

PHILIPSBURG - Dear editor these past days has been some of the most interesting days in my life. My opponents are trying their best to deter us from succeeding. They can hear every one discussing the issue of who is a StMaartener.

And this topic is scaring the living day lights out of the wanabees. The very issue that was suppress for the last thirty years in StMaarten has come back to haunt all politicians and our opponents that does not love people of StMaarten Heritage. However so far I am very disappointed in their attacks on me, first of all they are cowards, and I really pity them and I am sorry for them. If they had accepted who we are they will not be heartbroken.

My opponents fight with fear, I fight fearless and always with the passion to overcome. I thank my opponents very much for their petty attacks, and I encourage them to continue, because it strengthens me more and I become stronger and wiser. My grandmother always said to me what God gives you no one can take from you. She reminded me your enemies will come by the thousands and they will fall by the tens thousands.

What we are seeing in StMaarten is an awakening that no person can stop. It is destiny taking place you accept we all live in peace you deny it, you will destroy yourself. The noose is tightening; you cannot turn back the clock. Our time is at hand. Let me be very honest here, a lot of foreigners and naturalize people and also born here people agrees with us, those are welcome in the house of StMaarten.

They earn it by admitting and agreeing that first come and original always haves right away, God bless those StMaarteners. Why this fight is so important is that if you do not fight you become extinct and then you might have to migrate to another country where your chances will become greater of being victimize that is why you have to continue joining our program come one come all, victory is there let's take it.

For all those internet critics and for the coward real StMaartener whoever it is, you must first learn to face your opponent and let him know who you are, going on the internet with a false name only make you look desperate and displays your weak character.

Is that the best you got? Go ahead continue to make me popular but that does not interest me. You see, my cause is of a higher calling which you all will never understand. Because all you people live for is to criticize but cannot do anything meaningful in life. And that is why you all are failures.

Any person can go on the internet put a false name and play tough. But a real man or woman faces his or her opponent, which you all cannot do. Just remember the noose is tightening and your doom is near.

I will leave the door a little open for forgiveness, but if you do not want to survive I will close it with pleasure. God bless the people of StMaarten heritage and all other people that love people of StMaarten heritage.
