Who accepted rape?

19 April 2012, 10:05

According to reports Sanral has just announced that it has recorded a "significant increase" in e-tag registrations in Gauteng. But ironically the thieving agency was unable to provide certain publications with an exact figure. We have been bullied into a corner with threats of a R1.75/km charge if not registered, compared to the standard tariff of 30c/km for registered users.

Figures of registered users have been inflated to persuade motorists in purchasing a portable tax man. It saddens me to see fellow News24 users giving thumbs down to other users who support Cosatu’s cause against the E-tolling financial molestation system, I guess some of us have become accustom to financial rape.

Ironically we introduced the rapists into our lives…you probably thinking how? I mean which sane individual would be so dim-witted enough, to open their doors to a group of rapists with their protruding manhood? … Hmm I wonder?

Anxious on the identity of the rapists I see? I’m not much of an artist but let me try and paint a picture for you; elections, voters, politics??? Is the canvass of your mind getting the picture? Now fit it into your frame of mind…now hang the portrait in shame.

By voting for the same corrupt government filled with self serving bureaucrats, we opened our doors to financial gang rape. Due to our negligence others are now suffering a similar fate; when you vote the ripples of your actions move to unchartered calm waters. Some may not necessary vote for the ruling party, but the ripples inevitably culminate into a wave of mass destruction – a political tsunami that affects each and every one of us. Reporting the rapists to law enforcement is hopeless…in some cases it’s a mere slap on the wrist, spending a lovely long vacation at a five star hotel in Sun City; a renowned destination for criminals made possible at the taxpayers’ expense.

Are we going to let the ripples persist? Letting rapists roam freely without fear of any form of actions from the public. Come 2014 we need to castrate these rapists with sharp votes, cut to the chase and vote rationally.
