Another facepalm moment reading this that giRaffe just have to share.
giRaffe has to make it clear first, this has got nothing to do with whether giRaffe supports the red or the blue. giRaffe is simply responding to the facepalm-ness of our dear PM's arguments.
Correct giRaffe if it is wrong, but the fourth line means that we are still a democracy right?
Uh, what happened to democracy here in our dear PM's words?
According to the UN Global Summit of 2005, "democracy is a universal value based on the freely expressed will of people to determine their own political, economic, social and cultural systems and their full participation in all aspects of their lives" (United Nations Official Document of Resolution Adopted by the General Assembly [on the report of the third committee (A/64/439/Add.2 (Part II)), p. 30)
Based on our dear PM's words, it would seem that it is the ruling party who is determining what the political, economic, social and cultural systems should be rather than the other way round? Hmmm, help giRaffe out here, but it sounds terribly like an oligarchy does it not?
Are we the citizens really so dense we need the ruling party to help us see things to make sense? Perhaps we are if we believe this statement of the PM. No, they want us to see things "more like the way we do". Ah ha! Caught you here. Words out from the horse's mouth. See things more like the way YOU do eh?
The citizens (at least giRaffe believes the majority) do not simply want a ruling party who is a Mr Nice Guy. The citizens want a ruling party who cares about the people, who tries to solve the people's problems, who runs the country not like running a factory and trying to make the most profit out if it and then measuring the success based on the profits, but who runs the country with a heart. Yes, having a wonderful GDP is awesome, but that is only one of the many many many many many things in a country, yes?
Our voices, our cries for help, is genuine. It is not simply a spoilt brat wanting everything on the plate.
Please do not worry, PM, if your hearts are in the right place, have faith that the citizens will choose the better candidates. Only worry if your hearts are not in the right place, yes?
How many times must the people scream, we are not asking for the impossible. We are not asking for the sky. All we are asking is the improvement of some basic necessities that while certainly costs something, but isn't impossible. Yes, there are some crazy chaps who whines and every little thing and demands the impossible, but the majority are just reasonable people trying to get by. And for one last time, GDP is great, but it is not everything. Yes? It is not everything. IT IS NOT EVERYTHING YOU USE TO MEASURE HOW WONDERFUL A COUNTRY IS. ok?
This is absolutely not the bashing of any political party. Because any person from any red, blue, green, white, purple, whatever party it is, who spouts such things, ought to get a giant *facepalm* from a giRaffe. And this post is simply a giRaffe explaining to you, what the *facepalm* is all about.
