Seducing Voters results in Political Whores leading!

Many vote for the ANC not because of Jacob Zuma or others but because they appreciate the party which sacrificed so much to bring them to freedom. The nation’s father, Madiba is also the reason many vote ANC but when the people begin to realise that its own government is robbing them.

This would be considered to be betrayal. South Africa is on a time bomb and the people of South Africa are a passionate, patriotic people who I believe will soon revolt against the abuses Zuma’s government and restore the ANC to the ideologies of the true revolutionaries gone-by! Amandla Awethu!

Leadership requires good basic communication skills and an acceptable level of education. I’m informed that most communities (predominately literate) are easily swayed by the candidate whose “bribe-gift” is worth the most. These gifts consist of Maize meal, beans (food items, etc.).

Given the short-sightedness of these voters and the mockery of the sacrifices of the lives sparred so that every South African can choose a candidate for the betterment of the country not their stomachs.

Despite the distastefulness of this method in seducing voters, the authorities seem to have turned a blind-eye to this open bribery. Most councillors, who are voted in, are confronted on day one of the job displaying a lack of communication skills and have a low level of education and etiquette.

One of the common reasons for selecting a candidate is their rhetoric, many councillors still appear to give liberation speeches as if it South Africa was still oppressed by apartheid.Hate speech is a common mean in rallying the masses, promising them homes, jobs, and the possessions of the non-African.

Career Politicians should be on Minimum Wage?

Sadly we are all looking at mortal men, these are no warriors, no victors or champions. These friends are mere career politicians looking for a good job and you are the employer.

Millions of people …and yet we have so few choices for a decent candidate. Good Candidates are like gold-dust, for now we seem to base our choices on the “lesser of evils.”

Is it possible that there will never be a political party or candidate to that of Napoleon, Shaka Zulu or Lord Nelson? There are few occasions in epoch we did have the hero leader, Nelson Mandela or Aung San Suu Kyi who have both earned their titles for sacrifices they have paid for their people. Yet our Politicians want their payment for the promises…and what of our renegades?

Our politicians can somewhat be mythicised by the media for nothing to which can be accredited merely being famous and believing in them like they were god-sent. Recent saga is of Mr Obama- everyone loved him – not because of anything he had done, but merely for the fact that he was able to articulate or in other words, being a better salesman with promises to sell but reality shows that polls reveal he is not the Messiah we have been looking for? So everyone is on the search again?

We have become fascinated with what gives us goose bumps rather than what makes sense…No Taxes!! And everyone says, YEAH!!! But it makes no sense? Popularity and celebrity status appear to be worth more to the voters than their future. It’s as if we want to be deceived and bluffed all sorts. The Liberal Democrat leader; Nick Clegg initially focusing on students votes promising low tuition fees in fact when the Liberals did have their opportunity in power- his party caused the fees to rocket (much higher than inflation).

Sadly we are all looking at men just men, these are no warriors, no victors nor champions. These friends are mere mortals looking for a career opportunity, a good job that pays sufficiently to be creative inventors of promises and you are the employer.

Just maybe we should not try employing any of them or put them all on minimum wage? Just a thought?
