Beware of those who steal from the poor in the name of the poor

October 23, 2018

What started in 2001 with a policy of expropriating unused land without compensation very soon ramped up to expropriating productive land and businesses.

Food and other shortages arose as investment dried up. The state responded to food shortages with price controls, which inevitably caused even more productive land to fall into disuse.

The state now controls almost all economic activity in Venezuela.

Many voters believe that Cyril Ramaphosa needs a “stronger mandate” in 2019, so that he can save South Africa from the ANC.

Effectively, this means they feel they should vote for the ANC to save SA from the ANC.

Venezuela’s experience should warn people not to rely on personalities, but rather to support real reform and liberal democracy.

In 2019, a vote for the DA will be a vote for strong, independent institutions that protect our nation’s freedom and wealth.
