Political slogans

It is voting time and the slogans are up.
ANC: If we all vote ANC they can do more. If they could not do it in 15 years a few more votes are not going to help.
DP: Vote DP and win. With 10% win what?
Freedom Front +. You would think that in a town like Middelburg there would be placards around - none.
The same for IFP and UDM.
CP: 100% Jesus. So much for the separation between state and church.
ACDP: Leaders with integrity. Don't know the leaders but see above.
COPE: Just says "Vote COPE" not why - not even a vague promise.

None of these will get me to vote for a particular party. I do vote, but I always vote for the opposition - whoever that may be but looking at these campaigns I am sure that they can do better. Or maybe not.

There are service delivery protests on and every one that is interviewed says he/she will not vote - not vote for a different party, not vote. Shows you the power of brand loyalty. Our democracy has a long way to go.

Here in the EC the posters have also mushroomed, and lamp post space is at a premium.
Almost got whacked off my bike about a week ago by a poster torn from its roadside perch during a strong PE wind. I kid you not. I could have sworn the poster said something about and safety and security.

something not to be taken too seriously but I found it interesting comparing my answers with each party's policy at the end.
