*Warning* moany content follows.

The only thing this whole election drama has stirred in me is jealousy. I wish we as a nation had the choice between two uncorrupted governments who sincerely have the best for this nation at heart.

Fellow South Africans, whether you celebrate or detest the American election results, it's of no consequence to us. We are not America.

All I want to highlight here is who do we have to F#$% to get a decent government?

Where is the democracy? Who of us decided that we want our nation run into the ground by greedy, undesirables?

I long for the day when I can gaze upon our countries leaders with admiration and pride as we once did in Mandela's day.

The american people wept through Obama's victory speech. I too wept but not from pride or inspiration.

Pride and inspiration, is that too much to ask?
