Prof. John Evans Atta MillsThe lying tongue of the great oracle is burning in hot oil while the tiny brains of the so-called wise continue to wonder. The coca plantation is on fire but the rain god is nowhere to be found. The wise is quiet while the fool continues to make unnecessary noise. This is the story of Africa and this is the story of Ghana. Ghana has once again proven without any doubt to be the shining star of Africa. Ghana has proven once again to be the great lantern leading the way to freedom and justice. Ghana has proven without any doubt to be not only a shining star in social developments but a shining star in all fields. Although we copied their ways, we have proven to be better than them why because we knew about freedom and justice even when they were still in their mothers' wombs.

We copied them not to be like them but to know them and know how to live with them and that is why we can do it even better than them. Some say "votes were rigged" while others say "ballot boxes were missing" but I tell you the truth and nothing but the truth that the transparent electoral process that the "small" country Ghana just displayed is far "matured" a process than even in the so-called advanced countries where machines and not human beings determine who rules them. Even in America the world's "most" advanced country, votes are often counted in closed doors. In other words, the few who control almost everything in America today, elect their own leaders even before the average American could get the chance to vote. However, in "poor" Ghana, the poor votes and the poor count the votes. The General public votes and the General public counts the votes not in closed doors but in open air so the entire world can see how it is done.

Every now and then you hear political violence in one African country or the other why because we allow some greedy bastards the chance to do it their own way. Some are ready to kill their own brothers and sisters so some greedy good-for-nothing bastards can stay in power which makes no sense at all. We fight unnecessary wars and kill our poor mothers, fathers, and grandparents just so some greedy bastards can stay in power. What is the wisdom in that? This is why all African countries must come together as one people and learn to embrace wisdom, freedom and justice. Some say it is quite impossible but I tell you there is nothing we Africans cannot do. If Ghana can do it, what shows others cannot do it too? This is not the first time Ghana is doing it right. Ghana has done it right continuously for over two decades which shows it is quite possible.

Why should we allow ourselves to be ruled by dictators like sheep when we all know Africa is full of brains? For those of you who still don't get my point, here is an example of what I'm talking about. Why should one greedy bastard and a pedophile with the title of a "King" continue to enjoy while his countrymen continue to die like flies not just from extreme poverty and hunger but also from the deadly HIV/AIDS, etc. Swaziland has the highest HIV/AIDS prevalence rate in the world today. Not just that. Swaziland also has the highest tuberculosis (TB) rate. People continue to die like flies from extreme poverty and hunger in Swaziland today yet the poor people of Swaziland continue to bow down to that pedophile they call "king" all in the name of "CULTURE" which is very sad. Why should the people of Equatorial Guinea allow a bastard like Teodoro Obiang and his good-for-nothing bastard son Teodorin to enjoy almost the entire national cake while over 70% of the population continues to die in extreme poverty and hunger? This criminal Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo has been in power since 1979 and nobody is doing anything about it. There is something very wrong somewhere and that is why I think it is time we all stand up on our feet and embrace democracy just like Ghanaians have been doing for over 2 decades. Ghana is prospering faster than any other African country today why because there is freedom and justice in Ghana. Investors are not afraid to go invest in Ghana why because they know Ghana is a lawful place and they know they will be protected. Tourists are not afraid to go to Ghana why because they know there is freedom and justice in Ghana.

Africa is the land of brains. We "invented" thinking yet at times we allow others to think for us making them feel we are incapable of thinking for ourselves which is very sad.
