Day 38 - I can vote?????

This article explains how the two main political parties in South Africa are effectively bickering like an old married couple.

What I saw in this article is how the two apparent ruling parties are wasting time and money to win favour from the people and to gather more power for their respective parties instead of working together to do what they were created for.

What I mean is that: Are not all political parties basely designed as “working for what is best for the people of their country”? By that logic would not all political parties be working for the same thing? Would it not be better for the current ruling parties to use their resources for the betterment of the people of this country?

If you look at the point you would realise that the point of opposition parties are unnecessary for any true democracy as the people are the ones that should be in control of the country, not the political parties – as the people that live in the country are the ones that should decide what is best for them, as - is it not their choice to make?

You would not want another to decide how your life is supposed to be would you? The answer is no. Everyone should have the right to vote on every single policy decision – no matter how small – to ensure that the policies that are chosen and implemented are based on how the policy can improve life for all instead of, what is best for the government and their bank accounts.
