What do I think of Wyclef Jean running for president of Haiti?
Seriously, it is a hard call because for one it can be looked upon as a publicity seeking stunt due to the fact that his interest in the Haitian government reached its peak after the disaster occurred. I know he is Haitian but I do not know if he was raised here in the U.S. or not, it doesn't matter. I do not know how close his ties are to Haiti. Plus I do not know if he is even eligible by their laws to run. So I find it hard to make a call on something that I do not know all the facts of the case on. However, as a black man he seems to be attempting to do something positive for black ppl and I find it difficult to speak ill of the situation if that be the case.
I would say this, look and listen to what others in politics are saying about him and his bid to run. Are they speaking ill of his decision and if so what are they basing their comments and opinions on? I have said that the enemy doesn't attack a person that belongs to him but only attacks when that person is doing the will of God. If Wyclef is being attacked by members of government and the media then maybe it is his calling by God to do exactly what he is doing at this moment. He certainly isn't doing it for the money. He should by now have plenty of that. He doesn't have to do what he is doing and he definitely has other choices because the situation that he is putting himself into can possibly cost him his life (assassination). I am sure he is not going into this trying to be a saint or a martyr so he must have another form of reason as to why he has chosen to go this route. God uses ppl in different ways, just because we do not understand the reason why God chose someone to do something and not another person doesn't give us the right or the free license to say that they are wrong for doing it.
Look at how the media and political groups are attacking Pres. Obama; he must be doing the will of God because ppl wouldn't attack him even now almost two years into his presidency if he wasn't. The enemy attacks when you do the will of God because he wants you to falter. God is not a God of confusion, God is a God of perfect clarity and perfect peace.
