Let's say I have been given the chance to set a single rule for the next general election.
What I would do is to ban everyone above 60 to actively take part in it, except voting.
Everyone above that age limit can't become candidate or even campaign for the election in any way.
They must sit quietly at home and only vote on polling day.
That should take out a lot of the quarrelsome characters.
No more Dr Mahathir, Najib, Kit Siang, Hadi, Anwar and wife, etc etc.
It would also take out many of the irritating type such as Ku Nan, Mat Sabu, Shahrizat, etc.
Imagine that, okay.
We will have a set of younger people to choose.
Maybe we can have KJ leading BN and Azmin leading Pakatan.
That would be better isn't it?
All handsome, energetic and full of new ideas.
Too bad DAP, you all are stuck with the super irritating Guan Eng.
You know what, if you all don't like that, maybe this coming CEC re-election you can get my Kluang kampung boy Liew Chin Tong to fight Guan Eng.
See, Chin Tong is more handsome and I believe smarter than Guan Eng.
Anyway, if we can get such a rule in place, then the older people can take their old style quarrelling elsewhere.
The irritating ones can stay at home and play with their grand children instead of imposing their irritating selves on us.
The new younger set of people may offer a healthier and more mature politics to the country.
No more all the stupid baggages from the old days.
No more people who think that politics is a source of income until they die instead of a mean to serve the rakyat.
No more people who turn their political position into their personal property to be inherited by their children and grandchildren.
I think it's the only way to cleanse our political system.
Currently, the young ones in politics are just following the footsteps of their seniors who are clinging on to their political life either to cari makan or sustaining their ego (and most of the time, both).
These older people are the ones who set the culture of things such as money politics, racial and religious bigotry, dishonesty, disloyalty etc as means to survive and move up in the Malaysian political world.
Without them, things may likely be different.
To ensure that, we can also put 60 as the retirement age for politicians, just like any other job in the country.
That way, only the truly good people will aspire to be politicians as the bad ones will think that it's not worth it because they can't do their crooked things due to the time limit.
By then, we people can see clearer who are the better ones to choose among those young people who offer themselves to represent us.
What do you think?
Good idea, right?
Hahaha....well, of course it will never happen.
I'm just day dreaming.
Stuck in my room with nothing to do now
Can't even do Sunday shopping as I'm a bit broke this month.
That's why I'm lying on my bed writing this now.
But still, it's okay to dream of good things, right?
Never mind. Hope you all are having a good rest day.
