all the best to everyone voting tomorrow and i'm quite certain that ALL Malaysians will pray for a safe and peaceful election day.
much has been said about the possibility of chaos on that day. even my mom called me to come home on election day as she is worried about the worst. having gone through one world war and one sad state of emergency herself, i don't blame her if she is a little apprehensive of the whole situation.
i can't help but feel irritated by stories i read in the news.... tearing of posters, vandalising and destroying public property, throwing paints, fighting, slandering... even those in my residential area are no strangers to motorcycles speeding at the top of their exzos pipes shouting profanities and carrying flags of the parties they support.
makes me wonder though,..... do these people know what they're fighting for?
really..... what ARE they fighting for?
i mean, are we in such a severe state of oppression that we become advocates of hate, copycats of chaos similar to those portrayed on the electronic media?
i am not in favour of any political parties, or groups. in fact, in my career, i steer away from performing for events that are organised by political parties/organisations or those with political interest. that's just the way i am.
but picture this.... let's just say the opposition succeeds with the 2/3 majority.... what then?...
will we feel relieved that the "catalysts" of "change" are finally running the country.... ?
or will we tremble with anxiety knowing that the country's fate is now in the hands of the inexperienced?
GRANTED, we need our leaders to be more transparent in many a thousand things..... yeah, perhaps the alternative front SHOULD be given the opportunity.. ..
besides, you'll never really know what they're capable of UNTIL you give them the opportunity to run this country exactly how they have outlined in their manifest....
for all you know, they could prove to be worthy of our vote..
will we have the patience of FIVE whole years to wait for them to deliver their promises?
i vote for change, YES..... and i vote for PEACE..... and HARMONY....
but what some of our own people do, campaigning on behalf of their so-called leaders/parties - the governing party AND the opposition alike - is quite apalling.
i hope they get paid for it.
