Who are you going to vote for?

31 March 2014, 09:55

The world is changing faster than we can change our underwear. But the last time I looked, a Government was elected by the people and for the people and a government acted in the best interests of the people who had voted them into power. 

Unbeknown to the people, political parties are now corporations, or at the very least representatives of corporations. And unbeknown to the people who vote them into power they are no longer voting in a political party who will act on their behalf, but a corporation who will act on behalf of the corporate interests. 

So with this next election coming up, I would like to know if I vote for the ANC who exactly am I voting for? 

Sasol? Abasa? Tolplan? Monsanto? Wall Mart? 

Which corporate giant which the ANC now has shares in,  am I voting into power to control my country, for that corporate giants best interests of course, not for the people of this country? 

I resent Fracking in the Karoo. It will totally destroy the whole environment. 

I resent Abasa, they are part of Barclays and the Libor scandal that has robbed people the world over. 

I resent Tolplan that is raping every motorist, The E Toll is an evil scheme. 

I resent Monsanto that is patenting every seed in sight and having ownership of food resources. 

I resent Wall Mart that is destroying small business and replacing it with a monolithic central control over retail. 

 I would at lest like to know the truth. It is obvious I am not voting for the benefit of the people of this country, but for political parties fronting as corporations. It would at least be nice to know which Corporation I am voting into power, don't you think?
