  1. Well the Light has finally come on! it took 48 years, for you to realize this? Incredible! The first clue to this recent declaration, should have been the disappearance of thousands of their citizens to foreign soil. Haiti has “asserted” itself and made more progress in the last 5 years, than you have in 48 years.
