Life as we know it

06 March 2014, 07:37

It’s official as of last night we pay record amounts for petrol, but what does this all mean for the ordinary South African. It means the heroes of the past have forgotten about ordinary South African's because yes there is still Etol and economists predict that the petrol price in our country will continue to rise. When times are tough what do you do? Do you continue to drop the kids off a school? Do they join a lift club and save money? Do you park your car and use the unreliable mini bus taxi?

Some people turn on the telly in the hope that some politician will save the day, cut out corruption, jump in a superman costume, rescue the homeless and feed the poor. In fact on this planet they are more likely to feed the rich and tax the poor.

Or do we stand up and vote for change,  what does that mean when the American presidential candidate said "yes we can " people around the world thought wow here is a different politician who will deliver change but in the end all they got was small changes. In our country do we actually believe that there will be change or are we smarter than the average "potbellied" American sitting in a muscle vest claiming to be an expert when armed with a beer and faced with any topic. The truth is that all we can do is strap up and hold on tight these are tough times and there is no quick fix no matter how eloquent the politician is. Life is going to be tough for the ordinary South African no matter how attractive the options which a politician promises. Politicians seem to only care for themselves as life becomes tougher and tougher.
