Freedom of the Press - Time to make your voices heard!

22 November 2011, 07:14
Call me a tad paranoid if you want, but it strikes me as funny that only after SH-Zuma's political enemies were silenced, and the free press as we know it did their job in dishing out the filth on these enemies oh SH-Zuma, did a quick call come from up stairs to push the Bill through.

Because for whatever people say about Starvi Vuk, one cannot say that he is not a ice cold and calm strategist, pulling the right threads at the right time so that it would benefit him, this was clear when he pulled Potty Mouth Malama's strings back when he needed him to oust Keeping on Walking Mbeki.

I have no doubt in my mind that this Secrecy Bill will go through, unless by some miracle it happens that some of those MP's actually start caring for the good of South Africa as a whole, and not only to hide away their shame.

The Freedom of the Press should be protected by any means possible, because our Government can't govern themselves into making the right choices, hence our need to all stand up and protect our right to know what the State is doing with our money, our futures and our lives.

Only a morally corrupt Government would need to curb the flow of information to keep them in power for as long as possible, so that they can leech and siphon off the "life" that was intended to better South Africa for everyone.

Hear me on this, I will not sit idly by and watch the patriarch hyena and his ilk, destroy this country.  I will intensify my push to get people across the colour divide to think critically and rationally, and I will do this in the way that I've always done, by sharing knowledge.

I will even sacrifice my leave days, which I could have spent with my family over the traditional family gathering time to go and protest as a middle class, taxpaying South African.

To quote Patrick Henry:
"Give me Liberty or give me Death!"

Because this morally corrupt Government who squabbles between themselves for riches, and who allows for a environment to exist where children in one of the most advanced and prosperous  countries in Africa dies of hunger, have no business governing me or anyone else!
