Economic Freedom Failures

To this day I cannot understand why a party would call themselves the economic freedom fighters when all their policies in their manifesto show us nothing less than an economic catastrophe if they ever had to gain ruling power. Having advocates and supposedly intellectuals in their party, the only reason I can think of as to why they are looking at nationalisation of mines is to gain media coverage and be “different” to other parties, regardless of how ridiculous their policies are.

But then again Julius is known for being controversial just to gain media coverage; he did that in the ANCYL and now his doing it in his EFF. I mean building a house next to Nkandla was purely part of his political agenda and not for any goodwill whatsoever. Then creating a trust for all the poor people and EFF supporters, taking those disadvantaged people’s money and going to Louis Vuitton, buying whatever his heart desires with their money. What kind of leader are you?

Our young people have such potential, they are born leaders, they can motivate thousands of people younger than them, however the problem lies with you Julius, unfortunately we as young people cannot look up to you, you have lost our confidence with your unfounded actions and comments. You say you stand with the poor but you stealing money from them. Your youth league is just as mediocre as your mother board leadership; I did a debate with Miss Moonsamy and the funny thing is that she never looked up once, she literally read from the EFF manifesto for the whole debate.

Vuis Khoza, the party's candidate for Premier of KwaZulu-Natal, has a criminal conviction for "his involvement in what was believed to be a xenophobic attack on foreigners at Albert Park (Durban) in December 2009.

Look, going back to your policies; since it is in your manifesto, can you not see that nationalisation of mines takes 10 years or more before the state sees any return, it is almost impossible in our current economy to allow for nationalisation as a third world country. I agree with your policy on corruption, a guilty office bearer should get 20 years imprisonment; it will frighten a lot of potential corrupt government officials but you need to make sure your own party gets cleaned up first before you put out policies like this, especially you Mr Malema. I also agree with you when you say that we need a radical change in South Africa but your idea of being radical isn’t actually that, it is more barbaric, saying that you want to get grillers and physically remove e-tolls again obviously to gain more media coverage.

I am trying to forget the guy who chased out a reporter calling him a “bloody agent” but I see the same Julius. Your leading advocate and right hand man Dali speaks about improving the economy and giving the people of South Africa more money, obviously since there are no ways in your manifesto that are realistic enough to state where this money will come from, I am guessing you mean printing more money, now that will cause our economy to go through hyperinflation and it will destroy our economy almost instantly. I hope you enjoy your time in the National Assembly, being 1st on your parliamentary candidate list says more about you than anything else. Then again EFF is “Julius’s party”.

So I ask again what does your party know about economic freedom?
