As the dust finally settles after months of election fever that has gripped South Africa, we now wait for the final formality: The inauguration of the President. As the IEC announced the official final results, for many life went back to normal as we sit and wait for the first round of post-election loadshedding. The thought of five more years of Breitling-Bolsheviks, Lacoste-Leninists and Mercedes-Maoists enjoying the lifestyles of the rich and Marxist should frighten us all.
“They’re always complaining.”
The sixth South African Parliament will see a record number of fourteen political parties represented in our legislator. Of the fourteen parties elected to Parliament, eight parties support amending the Constitution to allow for expropriation without compensation and six parties oppose amending section 25.
The seats that will likely vote against the expected amendment tally in at 116 seats, or 29% (DA, IFP, VF+, ACDP, GOOD, and COPE). Potentially and most likely supporting the expected amendment are the parties that add up to 284 seats in the legislator, or 71% (ANC, EFF, UDM, ATM, NFP, AIC, PAC, and Aljama).
Of all fourteen parties serving our people in the coming five years, only three parties have at some point publicly supported the idea to privatise state-owned enterprises. Moreover, only two parties have opposed the minimum wage and its adverse consequences. These are the parties that complain the most in the public eye, yet enjoy the fruits of capitalism each weekend.
“If money is such a problem.”
It would seem that on 8 May 2019 we ironically secured five-year employment for 284 Marxists and Marxist-lites at more than R1 million per annum each. These same politicians get people out on election day to vote for them creating the false hope of a better life and then their supporters simply go back to their everyday poverty caused by the exact policies that they were promised will change their fortunes.
These 284 politicians will now go to work to push through multitudinous heaps of legislation in the coming five years, most of which will merely spell more misery for the majority of South Africans. This is not even to mention the strong contingent of members of Parliament who may not necessarily be outright Marxists but have the strong propensity to seek government solutions to problems and challenges that are commonly caused by government involvement in the first place.
“Well, they got mansions.”
These MPs of the sixth South African Parliament will, like most revolutionaries, as well as George Orwell’s pigs in Animal Farm, ride out their five years with fat tummies and lined pockets while they destroy the country that elected them. They will continue to wear the shiny silver buckle Louis Vuitton shoes below their masquerading red overalls and continue to drive their S-class Mercedes-Benzes door-to-door to sell dreams to millions of South Africans.
The fifth Parliament of democratic South Africa has come and gone, but do not expect much to change with the newly elected parliamentarians. This election was a referendum by South Africans and for the liberal parties of South Africa. After five years of utter destruction and looting by both the ruling ANC and the loudmouth EFF, this election was a test for our young democracy. It was a decision that we had to take. A decision of whether or not we will allow the further plundering of our people.
Despite the answer to this momentous question, at least for the time being, seeming to be gloom-ridden to many, it is in no way final. The lowest voter turnout since 1994 indicates that South Africans have taken the first step to reject the marauding Marxists and stealing socialists. They now just need the convincing to take the second step to outright reject them. There are 9 million registered votes up for grabs to say ‘no’ to the rich and the Marxist.
