a new dawn?

Saturday, May 4, 2013

Hello you. Yes, you, the one writing on this blog, and the (only) one reading it as well. So, basically your own self, Ideris! :|I’ve lied to my own blog. I promised to write more since my last post. I had a nice break from the clinical terror, but I couldn’t remember what had kept me so busy that I failed to accomplish my vision of updating this abandoned blog of mine more frequently. It feels like telling lies to my own soul. Oh my desouled soulless soul!

Anyway, this is a ‘hot’ period of the year! Not only because summer’s approaching and the temperature is climbing up at a drastic rate, there’s also a huge event coming up this month. It’s the general election! I shall remember this year’s election because it’s my first time voting. I already handed my vote in last Sunday since I’m abroad currently, hence the postal voting need to be carried out earlier than the official date of voting to allow adequate time for transference or something. I’m sure you get the idea.

I’m kind of a newbie to the political matters. An amateur, if I may. But I’m trying to get a hang of it. Do I support Pakatan Rakyat or Barisan Nasional? There are others, but in national context, I don’t see the possibility of them forming a government due to the insufficient number of parliamentary seats being contested by them. So it’s gonna be either one of these two to govern the country.

To be frank, I’m not a strong supporter of any of the two but I’m no midway currently. I decided to choose the other one because of what I believe in and what I’m fighting for. Strong word, fight! LOL! Well again, I already voted. I voted for a better Malaysia. I voted for the whole citizens of Malaysia. I voted to choose for a better future for my future children. I voted for the future generations. I voted to show that all of us citizens have the rights to be voiced out. I voted to make people realize of the power held by the citizens on how this country should be sailed. I voted to show the politicians of how afraid they should be of us, citizens and not the vice versa. This is a democratic country, every person has the sole right to choose the direction of this country.

That’s why I chose not to vote blindly and solely for any party. I’m not to be a donkey following where the party is taking me. I desire a transparent government so everyone can have a say in every matter. In other words, I’m against obsession of any political parties, because these parties should be held responsible by the people without excuse. There can be no party which is not to be questioned of any wrong deeds done.

Once again, I strongly believe in the power of the people over the government. The ballot is stronger than the bullet.

We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution. The people are the rightful masters of the country.
Abraham Lincoln

Pheww. So serious mah.
