Most national elections in the past decades ere debates over which party could best manage government, but in this instance we want to hear plans for multiple taxation cuts; the role of government in our daily lives; aggressive agricultural and industrial projections; economic self-sufficiency and a government that will not only leave a legacy but one that will fundamentally change our lives for the better he said.

Recalling the speeches of Demosthenes and Aeschines, two Athenian Orators debating the coming conflict with Sparta, also known as the Peloponnesian war, 2,500 years earlier. Aeschines delivered a well crafted thoughtful speech aimed at persuading his people to welcome the invaders to avoid a protracted and bloody war. the audience applauded politely and it was reported, “how well he spoke” But Demosthenes, who delivered a rousing call to arms, expounding individual liberties and freedom as inherent rights, moved the Greeks to actions when he finished speaking, the Greeks said, Let us march, the CAFD Boss made it clear that the coming economic forum will throw up the candidate and party that will become rooted in the future for our people and state.
