Malaysian General Election & My Sentiments

Enough already! If you tell me one more time I should be grateful, I would slap you. I would slap you very hard.

What is more saddening than the results of our general election is that, there are still many illiterates among us, who do not seem to understand what a government is or the simple difference between a government and a political party.

To put it in a very simple analogy, we hire a maid to run our household.  The maid (political party) is selected by us, and we give the maid the power to make some important decisions when it matters to the management (government) of your house chores. And we of course pay the maid a salary and perhaps an access to a certain amount of fund (tax) allocated for the household necessities such as groceries and toiletries.

The maid has served for your family for many years, she is doing her job to your satisfactory, and you have no complaints, you can live your life without having to fuss over your household issues and concentrate on your career. You were grateful to her.

Over the years you find out, your maid has been stealing money for her personal use from the fund you have given her access. You find out, she has been abusing your kids while you are not at home. You may also find out that, she has been sleeping with your husband while you weren’t around.

Do you still continue being grateful to her because she still does her cooking and cleaning and you can focus on your career? Do you still continue having her in your house because maybe your parents or your husband thinks, it’s the right thing to do?

If you are fine with your maid wearing designer clothes with your money while you are working your ass off, I’m happy for you. If you can live with your kids being abused and your husband getting extra care, I’m happy for you too. If you chose not to risk this maid because you don’t know how the next one would be, good for you.

Sorry that I am not positive as you. Sorry that I am not as grateful as you. But I am not you.

What I see today is that, I have lost my power. The people have lost their power. The dishonest maid has regained her power. She is in control over me and my household for the next 5 years. And life goes on.
