If the ANC lost Power

21 November 2012, 11:37

If we just stopped voting ANC

What would happen if the ANC were to lose power?  Well firstly, my Dad would be mourned the next day after suffering what would be a sudden and fatal heart attack brought on by absolute shock and despair.  Some of my uncles would commit group suicide; my director would feel guilty about his elaborate celebrations and probably call in sick just so I may not see how joyous he is. Of course that’s only because white people ignorantly believe that all black people must be in support of the ANC, and I’m not going to teach him otherwise; his ignorance makes him fun to be around. (I love watching the office try and be overly sensitive when passing their thoughts on ANC activities, they try so hard for me) you see I’m the sole black guy where I work, and their efforts leave me paining and straining my body so I may not burst into absolute laughter and delirium. Perhaps someday a white person can explain to me why they think all black people are ANC sympathisers, and why they carry such extreme guilt?

Anyway, back to topic and I’ll leave my white peoples alone for now. If the ANC were to lose an election, let’s say to the DA, the immediate aftermath would be chaotic, it would be anarchy like never before seen... it would resemble the movie Project X, but with 40 million people participating in the arson, looting, shooting  and general anti order, rather than a few thousand as in the movie. There would be more than a few murders, more than a few buildings burnt to the ground and more than a couple of assassinations would be necessary to restore uneasy calm. But the reality is, the long term it would be good for the economy, South Africa would receive much more in investment funding, the whole world sentiment would be to invest in this economy and there’d be job opportunities galore, there’d be massive employment drives, the infrastructure would improve overnight and the banks would keep slashing their rates until we paid little to nothing toward our mortgages / bonds.

“my black people” kindly get back into your seats, take  a deep breath and refrain from any further expletives toward me. All I have said about economic improvement would have less to do with the abilities or wisdom of a white government. All it would have really to do with is their being white. Our major banks are white owned, not just that, they are also internationally owned. The reserve bank is not even owned by South Africans, nor even South Africa as a government. You see, if the DA came to power they would have to prove they can deliver better than the ANC, so their comrades in the UK, USA and maybe even the sheep molesters down under would have to channel every last dollar reserve into ensuring the DA reaches their mandate. Let’s face it, people in our country still vote on colour, invest in colour, trust in colour and do business in colour. Of course this does not go for 100% of the business population, yet the majority does. And the majority of the wealthy in South Africa are white men, it may also surprise you that it’s just the same across the globe.

Thus a white government could improve the economy, yet would that automatically imply an improvement in the lives of the poor, there in lay much doubt and room for debate, you see the previous regime has meant that black people would have to go through 3 generations before they may consider trusting a white person to govern fairly and without prejudice. Also, this only reflects the reality that if white people invested in South Africa as a nation rather than looking at their “swart gevaar” bias perhaps the ANC or any black government may produce better results on their mandate. It isn’t that the ANC is that bad, yet neither are they actually that good, and so is it true for the DA, but the DA would have more investor pull and positive sentiment.  So, there may be less unemployment. And so white people ignorant of how long it took South Africa to repay the world bank all the money the NP stole before they lost power will now shout “we lose so much on corruption, the ANC doesn’t need any-more” when the reality is that we do, SA needs more investment.

Alas we still go about all our decisions on colour.

PS: I love the ANC just as much as I love the DA> I’d rather have my heart taken out with a spoon.
