    Who would you vote for President at Manguang 2012?

    Due to our particular brand of democracy, ordinary citizens of SA do not get to vote for who they'd prefer to see as our President. That privilege seems reserved to the "ruling party" and their processes.

    Which doesn't mean we can't hold a poll and get comments from the ordinary citizen anyway

    Helen Zille, seems to be the only one with big enough balls to take on anyone. My vote would be her and, she would also be the first women president.

    The ANC is such a corrupt and racist organisation, that they should not be allowed to govern at all. Unfortunately they have seen fit to keep the majority of South Africans uneducated so that they can be fooled with a T-shirt and a can of coke to believe in all the empty promises being made. Sad, but true.

    Well I always thought the world would end this year so I havenít given next year much thought. I was hopping actually that DNA activation was a reality but again it was just some dude that wanted a little attention.

    Well I donít see our current government going anywhere for a very long time. Fact is they will just play the race card on each and every election. So moving house to another country is basically the only change you will see for the next fifty to a hundred years. Or you can just buy a Nando's and pay with one of our brand new bills and get some change there...

    Other then that I see investments dropping, banks making large bailout loans, devaluation of currency and massive job loss...

    Needless to say that a leadership within this organization will have no substantial effect.

    Sadly it looks like JZ will win this race again. It is absolutely shocking to think people with even two brain cells could even consider voting him in again.

    Here's a wicked thought - if the ANC re-elects JZ, one of the winners is probably going to be the DA

    I would imagine that everyone thinks the DA is the answer. I am sorry to say but no. The DA needs to overcome their biggest obstacle… There ego… They are over opinionated they overstate there importance and think they can treat masses like children.

    See they think that the people must earn there respect. Remember the toilet fiasco not to long ago? Remember what was said on TV? There I saw the ego of the DA...

    What we need is an educated board with a strong moral standing. That simply doesn’t exist.

    Why does the cANCer even bother to have a vote if it has already been decided that Zuma would be re-elected?
