Why fix something that’s not broken?


This is just something I wanted to share with y’all.

Seeing and catching up past and current issues being addressed by our so-devoted CNMI government litters, it kind of brings back memories that just instantaneously makes my Refaluwasch blood boil to the brink of overheating. To be concise and clear, this letter is to bring attention to all and not just some that what I am about to write about. 

About the recently introduced succession bill to be amended and or otherwise altered, I had thought and asked myself over and over, “Why fix something that is not broken?” Take for instance, the late governor Eloy Inos, God rest his soul. When he passed away, he was immediately succeeded by then-senator Jude Hofschneider. How about when the first ever former governor Fitial who was succeeded by the late governor Eloy? Okay, you all or some might be asking by now the same question I had, right?

So, really, why all of a sudden should the succession law be tampered with? And what I mean with tampered is, why the rush to have this bill changed without due democratic process? One might say personal agenda, hmmm. One might also say motive. Whichever the case, it will also bring some form of litigation as you all you mighty men did state in the recently published Saipan Tribune article titled, “Change to succession law passes Senate.”

In closing, I do truly and firmly believe that change is inevitable. Should one ask what that change is, one would simply state so. All will be revealed in due time. But, hey, do not take my word for it, as this is just simply an open letter for all or some to read and enjoy.
Olomwaay, si yu’us ma’asse, and thank you.
