Laura asks…I would like to know what other countries think about our South African politicians?In South Africa at the current moment we have a president who is more worried about his and the ruling party’s money and how many wifes he can get than real problems like farm relocations, Zimbabwe, poor education, an unruly youth league and the list goes on. I would love to hear from other countries what they feel and think about South Africa and this hectic political atmosphere.Political News Writer answers:Unfortunately, the ANC maintains a stranglehold on power because of the past and apartheid. But that doesn’t mean the people in this party are truly capable of governing. They may have political legitimacy in the eyes of the people, but they lack the serious expertise to pull it off.Richard asks…If the ANC always had the 2/3rd majority, why is the opposition using that?to try to win votes?

All political parties urge people to vote to try to stop the ANC from getting the majority of votes, but what exactly does any of the opposition parties have to offer?

I’m not going to vote ANC, but I truly feel that there are no valid opposition that means anything. I don’t want to vote for a party which only mission statement is that we should vote for them to stop another party. What good is that going to do anyone?

I admit – I don’t understand the dynamic of South African politics. Please enlighten me.Political News Writer answers:Im of the opposite view to you – the threat of what the ANC can do under Zuma with a 2/3 rd majority is frightening. Disbanding the Scorpions was easy enough, what will they do to the constituition with unfettered power? In recent years there have been alarming bills the ruling party wants to push through parliament, bills that would severly limit the medias freedom as well as putting them under heavy censorship; bills that threaten the independence of the judiciary.
(and those are only the ones i know about!)
We rational South Africans have to take a stand in whatever way we can to prevent the erosion of core democratic principles!
I normally think that bashing your opponent isnt the best argument of why i should vote for that party; it reeks of despartion but we find ourselves in desperate times, do we not?Ruth asks…Nelson Mandela: ‘great statesman’ or lousy communist thug?Why is he considered such a “great statesman”? Mandela, apart from having a likeable personality, has achieved next to nothing in his relatively short political career which saw South Africa rapidly decline to the status of the world’s most violent and crime-ridden country, and his greatest friends have been communists and dictators like Fidel Castro, Moammar Qaddafi, Yasser Arafat and Saddam Hussein. His ex-wife Winnie Mandela, is a self-confessed advocate of terrorism and violence and has even committed murder.

He was himself originally incarcerated, not for his political views, but for involvement in 23 different acts of sabotage and conspiring to overthrow the government. He and his fellow conspirators of the ANC and the South African Communist Party were caught by the police while in the possession of 48,000 Soviet-made anti-personnel mines and 210,000 hand-grenades.
Many of his apologists optimistically claim that Mandela may well have had “communist leanings” in his past, but that he has since “put all that behind him”. Yet in 1991 he and Winnie went to what they called their “second home” – Cuba – to celebrate the communist revolution with Fidel Castro. In his speech Mandela said: “Long live the Cuban Revolution. Long live comrade Fidel Castro”

“Great Statesman”? Hardly.
Here’s a good picture of Comrade Mandela:

http://www.realnews247.com/how_to_be_a_good_communist.htmPolitical News Writer answers:Thug.Lisa asks…Do the brainwashed ANC supporters and parrots agree with this assessment of the S.A. political landscape?….or is the writer (who is black), a racist as they would normally label any person posting any form of criticism of their inept and corrupt political organisation/government?

I would love to read their opinions on the following paragraph especially:

“In a democratic country like this, we were not supposed to be sure about which party will be ruling after fifty years, but here in South Africa, we know it’s the ANC.”
Do they even recognise that a democrasy under which only one political party has absolute power is unsustainable and will without doubt result in dictatorship in typical African tradition?

http://www.news24.com/News24/MyNews24/Your_story/0,,2-2127-2128_2223649,00.htmlPolitical News Writer answers:Firstly I would like to say that I do not believe in a democracy. Sure its great that every one gets to vote, but in the case of the USA where the voting had a 1% differance, it then means that 49% of the entire voting population DO NOT have their goverment in charge. That is 49% of the people are not happy with who is leading them. Sure it means the voted in goverment then has to be kept on its toes to keep everyone happy. And that is a democracy right? Having half the population unhappy?

Where as in the case of SA, almost 70% of the people are happy with their leader (in theory because they voted for them).

I then further my statement of democracy, by asking what is African culture all about? Having one main person lead them. The “cheif” of the “tribe’. So I do agree with the article, saying that if their chosen leader tells them to vote for the ANC again next time round, they will. So again, the principles of a democracy fail. It shouldnt work in Africa because of culture. It is foolish to try and impose a western ideology onto an African country. This is why Africa is the way it is.

Just about every African country that started out as a voting democracy has become a dictatorship because of this culture. It is only natural.

That is why I want to start a Youth Movement and try and stop the ANC in their tracks. There are enough of us out there who are educated enough to know that this is not how a country should be ruled, and be run.Powered by Yahoo! Answers
