ANC: Where Loyalty Lies

12 June 2012, 12:05
What makes you tick as an ANC supporter? Why are the majority of South Africans still voting for the ANC party, where it is very clear that we all need new leaders from other political parties? Or is there any other political party that makes the cut for the majority?

After 18 years of democracy, the African National Congress has been in power with the majority of the publics’ votes. South Africa has produced its forth President from the same political party. The question is, is the ANC that good in power that we will see them going for another 18 years as the ruling party and if so what does this mean for the average citizen in South Africa? Well, as I see it, if the majority really believe that the ANC is that good, then they cannot see the issues the ANC is presenting itself and then it raises alarming questions as to why vote if you simply do not understand what the government is there for. In healthy democracies, the ruling parties in governments do not stay in power for more than ten years because politicians become corrupt with all the power. The ruling party starts turning into dictators and no one wants dictators or do you?

It all comes down to where the loyalty lies. Since the ANC is the one that gave the majority their freedom so that’s where our votes go, in order to keep away  Apartheid, which in my opinion is no longer valid as we have a constitution that protects us from being discriminated against.

The ANC is using Apartheid and the racist cards to stay in power, and that is how the majority decides on their future.

With every decision one chooses there are consequences to deal with, so voting in the ANC, will keep the majority in poverty, which means more crime, more fraud and more corruption. If this is how the majority want to live then so be it and they must not complain when things are not going right for them.

What is wrong in voting for the other parties like the Democratic Alliance; Congress of the People; Inkatha Freedom Party; African Christian Democratic Party; United Democratic Movement or Vryheidsfront Plus? How can anyone say one party is racist or has poor leadership without letting that party having a chance at running the government administration?

It is time for change in South Africa and change is good.

I would like the public's opinion as there is not only one side to a story.
