While working in Haiti as a radio engineer during the past three years, I had the chance to observe the political scene there firsthand. Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the ousted president of Haiti, received over 80% of the vote in last December's United Nations-supervised elections. Many people claim that Aristide is Haiti's first honestly elected president. His government legitimately derives its power from the 6 million citizens of Haiti.
