SA is slowly turning intoa disaster

The political situation has deteriorated so much that one is forced into expensive therapy just to cope with the vileness of it all. Numerous people in the townships who can't afford a loaf of bread, let alone therapy, are forced to hunt moles to eat and survive.

The education system is a farce, Zimbabwe has collapsed, our people are dying of cholera, our foreign affairs policies are a joke, politicians are fighting each other like school children, affirmative action has backfired, state hospitals have turned into morgues and the list goes on.

Compare Barack Obama's stylish inauguration to what we have: a dancing and gyrating buffoon in a suit calling for his machine gun. How common. How embarrassing.

Daily I meet people of all races who are thinking of emigrating as soon as the world economy picks up. They all say they love South Africa, but hate the government.

I've been a loyal ANC supporter since 1986, long before it was fashionable for whites to boast about ANC membership. But I'll never vote ANC again. They've failed me and South Africa. Slowly but surely, they are turning this beautiful country into another African disaster and banana republic.

Call me a racist, but I won't be bullied into silence for criticising the mess we have to live with. Don't vote ANC. A vote for them is a vote for a slow, painful death of our country. May God save us from this nightmare.
