5th May 2013: The Day the Nation Cry Foul...

We've come so far to differentiate between truth and lies. As the polling time ended, most decent people stay in the house to avoid being caught in a fight among political party supporters. The heart beats with every tick of the clock. Every time the website in Malaysiakini was refreshed, the heart pounded like the drum beat. It was disheartening to see the number of parliament seats climbing for the 'lever balance' logo. 
What is the definition of democracy? 
Democracy is a form of government in which all eligible citizens have an equal say in the decisions that affect their lives. Democracy allows eligible citizens to participate equally—either directly or through elected representatives—in the proposal, development, and creation of laws. It encompasses social, economic and cultural conditions that enable the free and equal practice of political self-determination.

But what just happened yesterday nite wasn't deem as what it should be and hoped for. Yes, we couldn't deny that we were given our rights to vote as eligible citizen but what about those alleged phantom voters? Why was an unknown character showed in a video at one of the polling centre?  For whatever reason? Our voices weren't strong enough that we need to be echoed by aliens? Chinese tsunami? Such racial thoughts to be said out. We wanted a clean governing body. We didn't want to be bought with all the free food, free concerts or free houses. It's the heart that counts.
Whatever happen to the electricity? I thought I was the only one who always paid the electric bill a month or two later than usual. Did that happen to one of the schools as well? TNB cut off electricity at night? Where did the box appear from? Was that just a rumour that a ballot box appeared out of nowhere? Then, all of the sudden the seats for parliament soared skyhigh... there's more to this... God knows what happen... but today I mourn for the democratic country that we claimed to be. 

Who's fault? Everybody's at fault... don't jump to conclusion I'm not done with this post...
