Is Rawlings mentally stable?

I am beginning to doubt the mental stability of former President Rawlings. He does not seem all right to me. Alternatively, is his problem just psychological? If it is, then it needs looking at by psychologists.

Egocentrism and the quest for power have so much adversely affected Rawlings that he ends up behaving irrationally. He goes out castigating the members of the ruling NDC party for being very corrupt. That is a fact. In the next breath, he praises the Chief Rabbi of the Corruption Syndicate and wishes him well, hoping he wins the upcoming elections easily.

How would a sensible person who truly believes in the principles of Accountability, Probity and Transparency, the cardinal pivots on which proper governance revolves, wish John Dramani Mahama and the NDC success in the impending election? Is Rawlings so confused to wish the perpetuation of gargantuan corruption, lawlessness, aimlessness and practice of selective justice on Ghana? Are John Mahama and the NDC not doing exactly as I have spelt out here?

Rawlings should get serious and have sometime off the public domain to treat whatever amnesia he suffers, be it political, economic or social. He wishes his party won the election at the expense of the welfare of the majority of Ghanaians.

Ghanaians are not fools to re-elect the NDC and John Mahama on December 7, 2012 regardless what Dr. Afari Gyan and Rawlings do. Their corruption stunk, stinks and will continue to stink. All that the hopeless bunch forming the NDC government knows best is plundering the coffers of Ghana.

I call on Ghanaians to vote wisely on December 7, 2012. The only way to retrieve part of the money the NDC have fraudulently dished out to people like Alfred Agbesi Woyome is to vote the NDC out of power. They connived with the fraudsters to swindle Ghana. How can we trust John Mahama to get the money from people like the one Alfred Agbesi Woyome back as he may indirectly or directly benefited from that dubious judgment debt payment himself?

Rawlings, you can go on campaign trail for the NDC, they will lose the upcoming general elections. This reminds me of a phrase we used to say when I was growing up, "the word tatabuta is buta". This joke literally meant or means, "What is written is written". God has written in the Sky, and revealed to all discerning and well-meaning Ghanaians that the electorates will vote NDC and John Dramani Mahama alias Judgment Debt Manager OUT of power. God can no longer look them in the face, with their entire body and presence stinking of official corruption to grant them another four-year term in office. God will not want them to sell Ghana, stash the money away in foreign banks and continue to ride at the back of Ghanaians.

Mr Rawlings, please you had better get some life.
