This girl has the right idea.

20 February 2013, 15:00

I am posting this article sent to me. I did not write it, but she speaks right to the heart of the troubles facing South Africa.

Subject: by a 21 year old Zulu woman going for SA president in 2014

This girl for President!

"The problems we face today are there because the people
who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a  living"
This was written by a 21 yr old woman who gets it.   It's her future
she’s worried about and this is how she feels about the  social
welfare system that she’s being forced to live in! These solutions
are just common sense in her opinion.

Put  me in charge . . ...

Put me in charge of benefit payments. I'd get  rid of cash payments
and provide vouchers for 50kg bags of rice and  beans, blocks of
cheese, basic sanitary items  and all the powdered milk you can use.

If you want  steak,  burgers, takeaway and  junk food, then get a  job.
Put me in charge of the NHS. The first thing I'd do is to get women to
have birth control implants.

Then, we'll test  recipients for drugs,  alcohol, and nicotine. If you
want to reproduce, use drugs, drink alcohol or smoke, then get a job.
Put me in charge of local authority housing.   Ever  live in military barracks?

You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair.

Your "home" will be subject to  inspections anytime and possessions
will be inventoried.

If you want  a plasma TV or Xbox 360,  then get a job and your own place.
Put me in charge of  compulsory job search. You will either search for
employment each week no matter what the job or you will report for
community work.

This may be clearing the roadways and open spaces of rubbish, painting
and repairing public housing, whatever we find  for you.
We will sell your 22 inch rims and low profile tires and your dooff
dooff stereo and speakers and put that money toward the  “common
good..”

Before you write that I've violated  someone's rights, realise that
all of the above is voluntary.

If you want our hard earned cash and housing assistance, accept our rules..
Before you say that this would be "demeaning" and ruin someones "self
esteem," consider that it  wasn't that long ago that taking someone
else's money for doing  absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered
self esteem.

If we are expected to pay for other people's mistakes we  should at
least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices.  The current
system rewards those for continuing to make bad choices.

AND While  you are on benefit income you no longer have the right to VOTE!
For you to vote would be a conflict of interest..... If you want to
vote, then get a job.
Now, if you  have the guts - PASS IT ON...   BRING ON THE REVOLUTION
