New Opposition or just another A-GANG?

09 April 2013, 11:04
Is the DA good enough opposition to the ANC or do we really need another A-GANG?

This is the question we must ask if we are to get to the bottoms of politics in South Africa and to better understanding landscaping.

Like I have mention, I was a traditionally supporter of DA but in recent months and with my insights revealing what could be looking ahead, I have been thinking of joining the ANC to add intelligence and meaning to the struggle organisation.
It is to say, that since the DA has no apartheid struggling credentials, we can only look to the ANC leaders who have overcome the apartheid enemy and know how to win victories over oppression and political freedom.

Which brings me to my point today.  Does the DA have the struggling credentials to overcome oppression?  It's only the ANC veterans who have fought such battles so that answer can be self explaining.

And one another thing, if the DA is not a good opposition, then we have to consider the new party, AGANG (COPE came and went without much fireworks, ceremony or pomping, so it's clear that we need a new opposition party).
So is this new offspring party a real opposition party or just another A-Gang?

What do we know about gangs? They stick together (like you know what on a woolly blanket).  They have matching tattoos and they normally carry weapons. Sometimes they do illegal things but we can't judge a book by the cover and must wait to see what this gang will do.

Also, some gangs are good, like Bikers for Jesus, and some gangs are bad, like Hell's Angels.

Bikers for Jesus will feed the poor at soup kitchens while Hell's Angels will come there to cause a sensation and riot and will probably rob the Jesus Bikers of the food - there can be nothing worse than being poor and hungry and seeing your chicken noodle surprise riding off into the sunset.

My insights also suggest that the honourable Mr Julius Malema might look to come in from the political freezer and join this new A-GANG, even if he doesn't like tattoos.  He would wish to join a party that can struggle against the ANC, of this I am convincing.

And one another thing, while we are debating politics, I would like to do a quick market testing to see the feedback of News24 users about my project.

I am writing a literacy masterpeace on South African politics and all things relevant to our position on this continent.  The book will be called:  Political Plights, Military Mights and My Insights.
