Dear Cape Party, Capitalist Party and Land Party. Are you the real deal?
Corruption and propaganda are among our country’s biggest problems. I have reported DA corruption to you, giving you and your supporters free copies of my book, ‘Same Shit, Different Government’ (download link). What are you going to do about it?
I’m sick of corruption, false election promises, not knowing who political parties serve and where I stand as a South African. It’s guaranteed many feel the same way, wanting to support you as an alternative to the betrayals we’ve suffered.
As the EFF has been the radical socialism of the ANC, so the Capitalist Party (ZACP) may be the radical liberalism of the DA. Founder Kanthan Pillay said he’ll give his provincial vote to the DA. Co-founder Roman Cabanac is friends with the DA’s Gwen Ngwenya. His show, Renegade Reporter (which I love), favoured the DA even if it became critical just before the ZACP began. They support Pieter-Louis Myburgh’s book but not mine.
The Cape Party may have coloured faces but, like the DA, is perceived to be pursing a minority agenda. I’ve done my best to be a good South African, by fighting corruption instead of watching rugby, but I’d consider emigrating to an independent Western Cape. The awkward fact is that it’s never going to happen without civil war. I want to dream with you but I’m against war.
THE LAND PARTY
The Land Party is the spawn of disgruntled ANC and EFF politicians. Your Premier Candidate is Loyiso Nkohla, he who became infamous as the ANC’s poo-thrower. He who proved hypocritical by trading his activism for a high-paying job from his DA ‘enemy’, and then traded that loss for politics again.
There’s no perfect system or ism wherein human animals are involved. We deserve the right to enjoy the rewards of our hard work. We’re inhuman if we don’t help the poor. Politics is best when centrist and growing the middle class, thus lessening the poor and containing the callously rich. Fighting corruption is the truth of all ideology, its litmus test.
TRUTH OR LIE?
Without track record, we don’t know who you are. Because every party before you has been lie, the odds are you are too. My hope is you’re real. How you react or don’t act helps decide your value.
I believe I speak on behalf of many but have extra personal motivation. For fighting corruption, I may end up in jail or dead. It’s bonus here because it’s a test of your party no one else can provide.
If you’re transparent and honest, full of action instead of evasion or silence, I’m wishing you the best this election. Your success will help fight the corruption of the three major parties. Give me/us hope to cling to. Accept my election challenge.
The people who should share this post are those considering giving these parties their vote. Those who should share most are their online supporters because we should never give faith to something purely because something else disappointed us. Political trust can only be earned by honest leadership walking through fire.
NB: I exclude COPE and the Freedom front Plus (VF+) because they’ve made it clear through lies that they’ll not challenge DA corruption.
