Tomorrow is polling day.
I have decided who to vote for tomorrow. I have decided since last year.
Here are ten reason why I’m voting for those candidates that are getting my one humble vote:
- I want to see corruption being kept to a minimum. I’m not pointing fingers at anybody, but the reality is absolute power brings many opportunities for corruption.
There needs to be checks and balances to prevent the constitution being amended at leisure.
- I am tired of being treated like a brainless drone. The spins and half-truths being served to the public in the main stream media disgust me.
- I want Malaysia to progress economically. I don’t want my children working as maids in Indonesia or Vietnam.
- I wish to use my vote to record my protest against various issues that have been cast aside or denied by the previous government. Issues like the right to peaceful assemblies, religious restrictions, rising prices, abuse of position and funds, rampant crime and flip-flopping.
Isn’t it funny how the government asked us to show our protest at the ballot box instead of street demonstrations, and then threaten us with lack of development and a lack of representation in parliament if we voted for others?
- I believe that the opposition manifesto shows the way to the future.
- As a Christian, I don’t feel that the previous government is promoting a culture of justice and fairness.
I don’t believe for a moment that it’s against God’s command to vote for an Islamic political party just because I’m a Christian.
- I don’t feel that the previous government is capable of improving security, peace, harmony or prosperity, based on the ‘track record’ of the past four years.
- I don’t appreciate being labeled a liar just because I’m a blogger.
- I don’t want to keep hearing that Malaysia is not an Islamic State, but the opposite is subtly becoming a reality.
- I’m tired of seeing arrogant and haughty ministers who forget that they’re here to serve, not to be served.
Why are you voting for who you’re voting for?
