Mayoral Elections

In these elections the candidate of the Alianza Social Indigena Oscar Mejia Marulanda constituted in this city’s new mayor to win election conducted in yesterday. Mejia Marulanda got 21.327 votes against the 16.469 Euripides Pulido, his sole opponent in this atypical election process convocadao to choose the replacement of Ovid Mejia Marulanda, who was separated from his post by decision of the Council of State. After a short and characterized campaign, as always, by government programs that usually promises the same, generous commitments and massive mobilizations of the closing campaign, finally this commitment is fulfilled with democracy, so today is already known the name of who will be driving destinations in the most important municipality of La Guajira in 25 months, there is no new demands and claims. Maicao has been a village truly suffered for several reasons: the poor quality of its public services, the ups and downs of its economy and the living conditions precarious for much of its population, to what we must add some institutional factors such as lack of governance that has characterized it for fifteen years. The three decades have elapsed since 1995 dan for five periods of Government. And indeed, in the elections of 1994, 1997, 2000, 2003 and 2007 these five Presidents were chosen: Antonio Hernandez, alvaro Guerrero, Ovid Mejia (1), Jose Rafael Diaz and Ovid Mejia (2). However, four of these mayors saw interrupted their mandates by judicial decisions (Hernandez and Guerrero) and two others were away from their posts definitely from the same cause.

In his replacement six mayors were appointed by part of the Governor’s question time and were convened to two atypical election processes. In total, the land of corn has had questionable record of having thirteen mayors in this period of its history, which gives to an average just over twelve months for each of them. These accounts would explain in large part the conditions found in Maicao, despite the wealth that it generates and the considerable resources it has received from the National Treasury on behalf of the royalties from the exploitation of the El Cerrejon coal. It is up to the newly elected Mayor exploit to the maximum the short time remaining before 31 December 2011 not only to translate campaign promises into reality but to restore confidence to a people who need to believe their rulers especially when they avizoran new years of lean from the aftermath that has left him the painful and costly separation from the municipality of Albania in terms of the drastic reduction of resources from the royalties. The ruling class of the Guajira, including congressmen, deputies and the departmental Government should attend Maicao as a real priority and support to the Mayor and his people so that they can abandon its chronic crisis, on the understanding that any ailment of the border municipality ends up hurting him and very strong to the peninsula.

Fear of Losing

Among the most important reasons of tribulation people have powerful fear is to lose. This is a recurrent factor as a cause of paralysis to face both the opportunities and the adversities that life presents. Not few people who have a limited and mediocre existence only by the fear that represents them to do anything that involves risk losing something. These beings come to a mistaken sense of security and take refuge in inaction and a so conservative sense of life that even threatens the natural dynamics of things. And of course nothing positive emerging from confronting the nature of things: because life is essentially dynamic change, transformation, fight. Understand that things may be due to our fears otherwise is absurd. Fear, in fact, when it constitutes permanent guest of our character originates a never-ending spiral of anxiety, lack of peace and failure. A good part of the cases the fear of losing is a weak spirit product.

The dimension spiritual man manifests itself mainly through faith and this is precisely what is absent among those who profess an acute fear of losing. Faith transmits security in the future. In other cases, the fear of losing is a weak soul product. In the soul takes refuge platform of emotions and rationality of man, there emerges the desire, value, confidence, security, sufficiency and even own pride; all of them constitute elements injured on those people who are paralyzed by the fear effect. And finally there is another factor that also explains the phenomenon, one that probably has more dramatic edges: the fear manifests itself among those who do not want to win. We can assume that people who are afraid to lose really are people who want to win as any other; i.e., is not not want to win, just that I’m afraid of losing; However this deduction is not appropriate because in life he only WINS one who has lost and only lose one who wants to win.
