Supporting EFF

19 January 2014, 12:19
I have no problem with political parties being created in order to help others when the current government has failed the people. Lets face it, if the government did their job right, there would be no opposition.
But what happens when you support a party that is potentially just as bad and thoughtless as the current one, you must have a few screws loose in order to shift from the already useless party in power, to ANOTHER one. You are essentially contributing to the problem of bad governance.
Let me explain: The EFF as you all know not only has the most controversial manifesto's in south african history, if not in the world. One of it's policies was to nationalise the mines...up until fairly recently Malema found out that particular mines were to expensive to nationalize (I mentioned this is many previous Uploads that nationalization would cripple the economy and would run into TRILLIONS of rands of debt) 
So I was right about that. So, with this said, the EFF's policy on the mines has still not been fully discussed and also the proper research has not been scrutinized on their side to ensure something like this could EVER be successful.
And the strange thing is, whenever they refer to nationalization, they refer to it OUTSIDE of Africa (in Europeans countries...oops) have successfully incorporated this policy because their economy is not only stronger, their governments are better.
Yet EFF people saying "although Zimbabweans dont have houses or food, they have their land...and pride must come first before feeding ourselves" I saw that on News24. 
I can go all day about the stuff the EFF say, but the fact is, that if you know NOTHING about the mining sector, you should not go around telling your people that you PROMISE they will get shares in the mines. You are making your party look stupid, yourself even dumber, and the people who follow you look even BLINDER.

SO, just by supporting the EFF, you immediately become associated with that of sheer ignorance, racism, the Zimbabwe regime and national terrorism... no matter what your skin color is. 
If you walk into a job interview, wearing an EFF beret, you wont be thrown out because of your skin color, you'll be thrown out because you represent a party then intends to destroy the legacy of Mandela and it wants to adopt the Zimbabwe model.
Before you support a party, know exactly what you're supporting, because if you wear a red hat with the EFF on it, you're most likely to get a smack.
