About That VAT…

VATINFOReaders of this blog would be aware of all I have said and written about Value Added Tax (VAT) and The Bahamas over the last three years. Every single point raised and hammered during that time is happening exactly as was laid out on this blog site. This is not because I have magical powers or a hidden treasure chest of information – it is because what we are now experiencing has happened in countless other nations. Much of what it takes is a commitment to study, learn and understand what needs to be known and understood about the world around us and our place in it. Things many of our politicians appear to be suddenly awakened to about VAT have been right before their eyes all along. As a Bahamian, it deeply concerns me to see the lack of critical depth displayed by those vying to maintain or gain leadership in our nation. It worries me that those who so desperately want the crown, have shown a frighteningly shallow grasp and a shallow level of relevant global exposure about the critical matters of the kingdom they want to rule over. Catchy taglines and puff-piece press conferences don’t run nations. Right now The Bahamas is not being governed. It is coasting from one peak and valley to the next. The true thinkers and skillful doers in our political parties need to arise or be given room to even productively exist, because we see where loving form over substance has gotten us so far as an independent nation. ‪#‎242ThinkersArise‬
