T.Q. Harris Jr.
Introduction 1.0

Geography, Population, History , Culture, Resources (human and material) as well as current global trends are factors taken into account in formulating TQ Harris Vision for Liberia. While its population and physical size may not be conducive for certain pursuits; Liberia’s history, geography, population and vast resources are tremendous assets for specific concentrations, which is extremely helpful when formulating a national agenda.

TQ Harris envisages a New Liberia that is strongest particularly in two promising areas: 1. International Finance; and 2. Green Technology. Liberia has the potential of becoming a major Financial Center and also an active Laboratory for Green Technologies. This vision, obviously, is a projection looking 20 to 30 years into the future. However, when elected President; TQ Harris on day one shall steer the nation toward making this dream a reality.

His Vision is based on the belief that Africa is the last frontier for major wealth creation in the 21st Century, primarily due to an abundance of natural resources and its dismal state of development. Therefore, it is safe to assume Trillions of Dollars will flow in, out and across Africa in the not too distant future. Managing these assets will for the most part be done here on the Continent.

Investment in infrastructure and human development across Africa within the next 20 to 25 years is likely to reach an unprecedented level. Spending across the board in a single month might cause the crash of a supercomputer if not cooled properly. That means the volume of financial activities necessary to sustain what is likely to be a sudden, astronomical economic volcano will invariably create opportunities for those that are equipped and ready to meet the demand. We intend to position Liberia such that it becomes the prime location for managing and overseeing the massive volume of capital which no doubt will forever change the face of Africa. To this end, we shall begin building the infrastructure and developing the human resources that will make Liberia the preferred location for major financial institutions - Banks, Insurance companies, Investment companies, Holdings companies, etc.. The journey to become a major International Financial Center begins in 2011!

The second leg of TQ Harris Vision is another transformation for Liberia. This involves making the country an active laboratory for Green technologies. Since the entire country has to be rebuilt; why not start by laying an environmentally friendly foundation? The vision is based upon the premise that renewable energy shall play a vital role in shaping the future. The goal, therefore, shall be to make Liberia a functional environmentally friendly model that others could emulate. To this end, the New Liberia shall be designed and built around energy conservation and environmental preservation. We shall take steps immediately to protect the awesome rain forest – a national treasure that is still intact – so it may contribute to human advancement and enjoyed by future generations. Meanwhile, environmental consciousness shall become a way of life for Liberians. With proper planning Liberia in the not too distant future shall host major research projects and may even become a prime destination for tourists.

Lastly, Meritocracy shall be the standard for advancement in the New Liberia. Also, the rights of the individual, including freedom of worship shall be protected under the law.

Inside Liberia with Bernard Gbayee Goah

Everyone is a genius

Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid. – A Einstein

Drawing the line in Liberia

Crimes sponsored, committed, or masterminded by handful of individuals cannot be blamed upon an entire nationality. In this case, Liberians! The need for post-war justice is a step toward lasting peace, stability and prosperity for Liberia. Liberia needs a war crimes tribunal or some credible legal forum that is capable of dealing with atrocities perpetrated against defenseless men, women and children during the country's brutal war. Without justice, peace shall remain elusive and investment in Liberia will not produce the intended results. - Bernard Gbayee Goah

Men with unhealthy characters should not champion any noble cause

They pretend to advocate the cause of the people when their deeds in the dark mirror nothing else but EVIL!!
When evil and corrupt men try to champion a cause that is so noble … such cause, how noble it may be, becomes meaningless in the eyes of the people - Bernard Gbayee Goah.

If Liberia must move forward ...

If Liberia must move forward in order to claim its place as a civilized nation amongst world community of nations, come 2017 elections, Liberians must critically review the events of the past with honesty and objectivity. They must make a new commitment to seek lasting solutions. The track records of those who are presenting themselves as candidates for the position of "President of the Republic of Liberia" must be well examined. Liberians must be fair to themselves because results from the 2011 elections will determine the future of Liberia’s unborn generations to come - Bernard Gbayee Goah

Liberia's greatest problem!

While it is true that an individual may be held responsible for corruption and mismanagement of funds in government, the lack of proper system to work with may as well impede the process of ethical, managerial, and financial accountability - Bernard Gbayee Goah

What do I think should be done?

The situation in Liberia is Compound Complex and cannot be fixed unless the entire system of government is reinvented.
Liberia needs a workable but uncompromising system that will make the country an asylum free from abuse, and other forms of corruption.
Any attempt to institute the system mentioned above in the absence of rule of law is meaningless, and more detrimental to Liberia as a whole - Bernard Gbayee Goah

Liberia's Natural Resources
Besides land water and few other resources, most of Liberia’s dependable natural resources are not infinite, they are finite and therefore can be depleted.
Liberia’s gold, diamond, and other natural resources will not always be an available source of revenue generation for its people and its government. The need to invent a system in government that focuses on an alternative income generation method cannot be over emphasized at this point - Bernard Gbayee Goah

Liberia needs a proper system
If Liberians refuse to erect a proper system in place that promotes the minimization of corruption and mismanagement of public funds by government institutions, and individuals, there will come a time when the value of the entire country will be seen as a large valueless land suited on the west coast of Africa with some polluted bodies of waters and nothing else. To have no system in place in any country is to have no respect for rule of law. To have no respect for rule of law is to believe in lawlessness. And where there is lawlessness, there is always corruption - Bernard Gbayee Goah

Solving problems in the absence of war talks

As political instability continues to increase in Africa, it has become abundantly clear that military intervention as a primary remedy to peace is not a durable solution. Such intervention only increases insecurity and massive economic hardship. An existing example which could be a valuable lesson for Liberia is Great Britain, and the US war on terror for the purpose of global security. The use of arms whether in peace keeping, occupation, or invasion as a primary means of solving problem has yield only little results. Military intervention by any country as the only solution to problem solving will result into massive military spending, economic hardship, more fear, and animosity as well as increase insecurity. The alternative is learning how to solve problems in the absence of war talks. The objective of such alternative must be to provide real sustainable human security which cannot be achieved through military arm intervention, or aggression. In order to achieve results that will make the peaceful coexistence of all mankind possible, there must be a common ground for the stories of all sides to be heard. I believe there are always three sides to every story: Their side of the story, Our side of the story, and The truthBernard Gbayee Goah
