Give me a reason to vote for you

30 January 2014, 18:09

It is at this time during the 4 year election cycle that we all start to get caught up in all the excitement of the upcoming elections, but this year is different, I feel indifferent.

I have realised that there is not one political party that can actually give me a reason to vote for them. Every party is too busy telling us why we mustn't vote for the other party but no party has come forward and given us a solid, intelligent and comprehensive plan on how they will change this country.

ANC tells us that if we don’t vote for them then Apartheid will come back and that our ancestors will be angry and they will create jobs, but no plan or details on how this will happen. DA doesn’t say anything except that we must stop Zuma and the Etolls and that they will stop corruption but little more information from them either. EFF just says that they will nationalise everything and disperse the wealth, but what then?? They all are just using shocking and controversial politicking to get as much attention as possible before the election with giving us true leadership.

I really feel let down by all the parties, I will vote for ANY party, be it ANC, DA, EFF or even the Dagga party, if they could just give me not only a vision but a plan on how to get there.  This country is in dire need of true leadership, not simply picking the lesser of two evils. I wonder how many people would vote for DA or EFF if there were other decent parties around.

Black people who don’t like the ANC vote for the EFF and whites who don’t like the ANC vote for the DA, but I wonder if this is because they truly want to vote for them, or whether they are simply voting for that party because it is the next best thing without even considering that parties political views and their mandate. I suspect that it will be the latter.

Would like to hear if anybody else feels the same way?

I, Human

I have, over the past few years, glanced at various secular humanist websites, and have found that my personal life philosophy is very much aligned with their goals - almost to a tee. Read more...

And pretty much anyone who has done so will know that the tragedy occurred largely because Hamlet, the prince of Denmark, was plagued by the inability to make a decision and to act. Read more...
