South African Genie and the Magic lamp...

20 April 2014, 21:30
Legend has it that if you had a magic lamp and you rubbed it 3 times, A Genie would appear, and grant you 3 wishes.

The lamp itself would not be recognized as  magical. I expect if someone did find it, it would be old and dusty.

Only the act of picking it up, taking a closer look, wiping the dust off to bring back it's shine, Would reveal this incredible power trapped inside.

The ANC thought that they had the magic lamp when Mandela was leading. And I think they were right...

But the magical Genie, known by all who live on the planet, named Nelson. Revealed some astonishing and practical solutions to problems on earth. He said, we should stick together, Forgive and reconcile.

What a simple and obvious proposal and yet not seen by everybody.

I say, The Genie still exists, But where is his lamp?

Something tells me, The big blue wave is carrying the lamp now!

It is the DA that hold's the lamp. They are the treasurers of the core of where magical and powerful things will happen.

I love the new South Africa, I love living in a Country where we are all equal. I love it that we use the same bathrooms and I love my Country much more than before.

I say that in an act of faith, let more people vote for the mighty DA, I say mighty, because they are keeping the lamp, the Lamp of prosperity and of hope..

Madiba was not famous for sitting in jail,  He was famous for how he responded.

I say South Africa can grow exponentially if we changed the leaders.

SA is awesome, Even SABC cant bum us out, we watch DSTV.

Come on SA, lets Vote well, Even those that vote EFF, go for it, make a stand and show who you are.

Only when we embrace our differences, can we truly get along.

I want to see how many people vote EFF, It would be beneficial to gauge how many people live in a less privileged mindset.

They would after all, be the people that really do need help.

As long as people know, The lamp has left the ANC long ago.

Godzilla has taken it....
