A lot to answer for

Re: China a friend in times of need 

Tuilaepa has a lot to answer for. He is giving foreigner investors a foot hold into Samoa through these rushed projects like China, Japan, Indians, so all angles are covered. 

Now they influence our children, the oldest trick in the book, our children are being taught it is ok to accept free things without consequences. 

It is ok to live a life of debts, as long as we beautify our looks we will ask for more loans. Our children are made to lean heavily on others to live not learning themselves to stand on their own two feet and struggle through life. 

So Samoa is being taken over, through innovations, development projects, through education, transportation (Land, Sea and Air), businesses, through our own Government despite being of Samoan body but that is but an image now the core is rotten and already being bought by the highest bidder, Religion only cares for their wealth, they have been neutral on this forever, only worried about them being taxed. 

Where’s is the love here? Where is the faith? Where is the Christianity that is the pinnacle if our foundation? Where is our Cultural values and pride? 

We have our identity at this moment been tested and questioned, and it’s changing mentally, psychologically, religiously, culturally and physically.
