I don't play dirty politics, but I do consider the facts in order to
help people. So below I am providing some facts.
In last Presidential election, both Radha Burnier and John Algeo
should have published what they had done for the TS, when Radha held
top post for many decades and John led TSA over a decade. 
During the leadership of Radha, membership as percentage of world
population has decreased. During the leadership of John Algeo
membership of TSA has decreased. 
Large number of lodges became sick or almost sick during the
leadership of both.
