Full steam ahead

25 February 2014, 12:31

EFF seems to have a realistic chance of fighting for leadership in this country. Before all the EFF supports start cheering, all this basically means is that there are enough people in South Africa that do not understand simple economics, who blindly put their trust in people that are corrupt and constantly fight corruption charges, and that will believe anything they hear. It is a perfect breeding ground in SA due to our poor education results.

Let me paint you a picture….. This is to all the EFF supporters.

Consider South Africa was a ship for a moment, which has a certain amount of capacity and benefits to its passengers. What Malema is promising is pretty much stating that even though this ship can only hold 100 people, he will make sure that this ship will after he is in power, will transport 1 million people. Now every uneducated person in SA is absolutely amazed at this statement and can’t wait for this wonderful day!

I give you 1 guess what will happen if EFF does gain control of this country and the million people try to get on this ship. In any country where people are educated, EFF would not be taken seriously for a minute, yet this is SA where we think money falls from trees and it is simply about everyone sharing their wealth. Creating wealth never comes to mind, building never comes to mind, and destroying when my demands are not met does seem to be the appropriate option.

Just because the ANC is corrupt, does not mean you should replace it with a party that makes no logical or economic sense. When you try to take the really rich people’s money, they go somewhere else and you are left without their business. The majority of SA is not rich, most are trying to survive. Extremist policies will not unite and create any prosperous future; it will continue to set SA further back in not just the world, but in Africa as well.

This is not a sport’s team; you don’t win just because you liked a party and stuck with it till they won the election, you only win if they uplift the country.  The ANC and EFF would like black people to believe that white people want apartheid back, that they are only interested in their own lives. That is not true, white people in general want SA to be uplifted as a whole. The poor must be helped and only good viable economic decisions will achieve that. We want capable people who can be trusted in charge, simple as that.

I read recently a comment from a lady on News24, I can’t remember her ID now, but she made a good suggestion; Put a cap on the salaries earned? There are astronomical salaries out there that make no sense. I support that idea of a CEO earning a huge salary, but the salaries at the moment seem to be 10 times that. Now if you started with this idea, it would allow us to up the minimum wages by a reasonable amount.
