Let the women fix this mess!

29 January 2014, 07:08
The political scene has taken a twist..
I read some very weird confusing comments though from news24 followers. For example.
I can't vote for a racist party, basically stating that the DA is racist even though they just committed to a black woman as their 1st position.
Another, I just don't see what future I will have with the new parties. Basically questioning the DA and Agang while the ANC is consistently destroying the country with corruption and incompetence.
This is a gem, a user wrote that the DA is capitalists and their greed and superiority complex is why there are so many poor. Yes that is why the rest of Africa is doing so amazing?! How many examples do you need of socialism that failed compared to success stories of capitalism? The best part of this user's view is that everything will be free, it seems he believes Malema and that is the biggest pulling power. Promising something for nothing is a sweet bargain. Why work to buy property, give it free! Why perform for an increase, its free. Why study to do well, its free to just sit back and get everything anyway. Yes that is how the world works...
I just can't believe how many people question 2 strong successful women in comparison to what?  Men that have a history of corruption, rape and fraud?
Take your head out of your... and let the women fix this. I say this cause there are no men in this picture that could. 
Lastly, I was willing to vote DA for local and Agang as national to get away from the corruption and greed of ANC and their break away party EFF. So how can I be racist?
It is so simple.. the people that vote Agang or DA were thinking in the best interest of the country. If Agang and the DA merging offends you more than the blatant corruption and lies mixed with the superiority of government, then please vote ANC or EFF. You deserve them.
I for one hope that there are more intelligent people in SA than what most believe. I guess we will find out after the elections.
