The time of promises has arrived

23 April 2014, 20:15

Once again, the time that all the politicians think of us as Citizens it is now.

We all know the reason, because they want our precious votes.

Once again and just like was 5 years ago, the same promises are back, but there is no improvement.

Look around you. If you're lucky enough to have a wallet, look at what you have left to support your family.

Take a drive trough the majority of our suburbs - please remember to avoid the pot holes, look at the poverty, the squatter camps, that we all wish that we could do something about it if your heart is the right place, the strikes on the monthly basis, the protests that become part of our lives and the list goes on.

The so-called 3rd force used to be blamed in the past, who is taking the blame this time?

Maybe you, that just don't care and do not even bother to used your vote to make the difference.

Let's think carefully before you cross your vote, every vote is important for our next 5 years.

The future is in our hands.
