Every active member of eSA pretty knows me by now. Im the guy demanding economic recovery. Im the guy demanding budgets. Im the guy demanding (working) communes. Im the guy demanding our regions back from Brazil, or at least clarification on the nature of their occupation of OUR lands, im the guy demanding accountability for the supposed "rent"money they give us for occupying those regions, HOW MUCH IS THAT RENT MONEY AND WHERE DOES IT GO? im the guy demanding proper working democracy, not gimmicks of voters swaying party to party to vote for supposed "vetted" candidates. im the guy demanding everything.
But the leaders refused to answer my questions. refused to lead. "Dont you know Henock?" They said . "We cant do anything about the country right now because of the PTO threat". "Yeah" they shook their heads in union. "We would love to draw up a budget and fix the economy and all those things but, we just cant right now". "PTOers".
And everybody jumped on the wagon of that excuse because it seemed so, logical. True. They sent their minions to attack me and call me all sorts of names under the sun. It was not true.
As i have repeated in the past OVER AND OVER, we do not, i repeat, we DO NOT have a PTO problem. Nation, wake up. I wanted to wait until the election to prove my point, how many PTO votes the PTOers received in the last election?
Yep, a measly five. It was a hoax people, a smokescreen. The whole fear campaign was drummed up by Grimstone and Claudio to:
1. Keep them and their circle of friends in power
There's no campaign strategy quite as effective as "vote for me because, you know, PTOers". No other can counter that. eSA is full to the brim with active qualified candidates to hold office and shape a new path and future for the country but are discouraged every day by the Grimstone group to not seek to hold office because "it helps PTOers". Nice guys and girls with exciting visions for the country are denied the opportunity to hold office because they have to be "vetted", "recommended" etc by Grimstone and his friends, who coincidentally only vet themselves for those offices. Its accepted common practice now for a party to accept having one candidate for PP for example. This is blatant *i*sing on democracy people.
This administration authorized the use of our tax dollars to PAY FOR VOTES for their so called preferred candidates. Im not making this stuff up people:
Sort of like those presidents that hold onto power merely out of fear of what will happen to them if they ever left office, the Grimstone administration has quite A LOT of folks who would not be able to answer a lot of questions if they allow someone to elevate themselves to the position of asking "too many questions".
I was recently banned from the Chat Rooms as a result of "asking too many questions". Yes, i was BANNED, for asking too many questions. Which was demanding the budget, which i uncovered was non existant since October 2012. You are reading right, OCTOBER 2012.
That means for 5 months, 5 MONTHS, no one knew exactly how much was spent when and where. People could have fattened their pockets, who knows? There's no way to find out. Folks, Claudio operated on a blank cheque with your tax dollars for TWO TERMS, and the only excuse he gave me was:
"well, funds dwindled. The economy tanked and the money was too small to be budgeted". Yes folks, "too small to be budgeted". I for one can imagine budgeting R10.00. Even just keeping records of it. But thats just me.
3. Out of ideas
Maybe its because they have been doing this for so long but these guys have no clue how to excite the country anymore. They do not have any idea how to galvinise the people. The only way to bring excitement to the game was to come up with imaginary things like, you guessed it, "a PTO threat". Everything is PTOers this, PTOers that. They literary have no other clue how to, as your leaders, make your eRep time worth it any other way. It is why we have so many 2 clickers now, people are BORED. People feel detached. People feel misled.
But have no other choice.
But my article title s wrong, they have not failed. They are winning. At YOUR expense. You have made your bed eSA. Lay in it.
