I want to make this as short as possible but I think this issue is very very relevant. The fact of the matter is that the majority of this country aren't educated and they haven't got a clue on what is going on with the cANCer everyday. They don't have the resources like the internet and they can't afford to buy newspapers sometimes...hell, alot of them don't pay tax and they can't even write or read....BUT, are given the right to vote?
There is something really wrong here, I understand that everybody has the right vote and all that politically correct rubbish...but I think we seriously need to re-evaluate the way we allow people to vote in this country.
The ANC have been in power for nearly 20 years...and every 5 years, these guys keep voting ANC and then they complain and burn stuff...and vote ANC again AND this has been the same cycle for years.
You can so easily brainwash the majority with a charismatic speech about CHANGE (or lack there of) and give away free food parcels and a t-shirt...thats all hype and sensationalism...but at the end of the day what do they really get? NOTHING. The food parcels and the speeches and shirts...it's all a facade, its all products of the propaganda machine the ANC spews out like the VEVO spits out rubbish music.
I strongly believe, that ONLY people who pay tax AND an average IQ of 100 (that is Average), this way people who can think for themselves and those who are contributing to the economy are given the right to vote. WHY should people who sit around all day and blame others and complain about how "the whites" have everything and its Apartheids fault...KUK! I have a black friend who grew up during apartheid...he grew up in poverty his whole life but he had the ability to learn quickly, he now has a successful business and gives alot of his wealth to charity.
This guy grew up with nothing and he managed to get out of the cracks BY WORKING FOR WHAT HE WANTED. It's as simple as that.
If you are not where you have wanted to be, don't blame the government, don't blame the whites, don't blame apartheid...blame yourself.
