I have very mixed feelings about Guyana. I love the country and the people. However, it is just not safe to visit for Americans of my complexion. This is not my opinion it is the opinion of my girlfriend's family. It is tough to enjoy a vacation where you must be escorted everywhere and locked up after dark.
I want to be very clear that the country is in sad shape due to Marxist malfeasence. The political parties were run by Marxist criminals who pitted Blacks and Indians against each other while mismanaging the place and looting the public.
One can even see communist brainwashing in a standard primary reader. The sons of Marx resort to brainwashing the youth with BS about co-operative farms. The roads are non existent in places and the country is in such a mess that almost everyone wants to leave.
Someday, the local community will organize and make demands for aid. There is no reason that Haiti should get exponentially more aid with zero results.
The aid should be directed towards specific projects with the aid distributed by the US Government.
1) An second airport for New Ansterdam. The airport would be largely a cargo airport with limited passenger flights from Georgetown and the USA.
2) Improvements to the docks at New Amsterdam.
3) Garment Import Quotas taken from China's large share.
4) Improvements in police training and techniques.
