There is hope after all, in this dearly beloved country. For years I have planned to move on, to migrate so that my children can have a better future but the election results have now shown that there can be change after all. With that, I have to uncloak myself of this defeatist attitude, and embrace this country again, because the people have awaken, albeit many years in the taking, to vote for change, to vote for an improvement, to mitigate the onslaught of cronyism, the omnipresent corruption, the manipulation of the country’s wealth to the chosen few. Over the years, the cancer has flowed even to the smaller veins and capillaries, even in the GLCs, so that capabilities and experiences do not matter but who one knows. We are tired of working for those appointed drones and their cronies, people who cannot think but depend on those dominant party people for directions.
It is with fervent hope that the Opposition will unite and work towards the betterment of this country, to return this place to a democracy that can be perceived, by reinstating that balance of power that this country sorely needs. The dominant political party needs to reassess and rethink towards a common good and not fall back again to deceit and retaliation at a cost to all Malaysians. This country belongs to everybody, not to just the members and families and friends of one political group. The scope of attention needs to move away from endless and expensive infrastructure programs to those that contribute towards the current and future welfare and livelihood of all Malaysians and the development of services and products that the global market needs.
