rocks and other hard places.

The coming elections are making me a little antsy. I’m only 23, and I’m not really sure if I have the kind of maturity necessary to make an informed decision about the future of my country.

There’s so much debate raging online between supporters of the Opposition and those of the PAP, and I don’t really know what to think. I don’t like the Opposition because their policies don’t make sense. It seems quite clear (to me, at least) that the Opposition’s policies are not sustainable. About the only “alternative solution” I agree with is the one about medical insurance. On the other hand, the PAP really is getting very complacent, and their new guard has no heart. They don’t come across as sincere or committed. The most worrying addition is the one that doesn’t seem to have half a brain. I always had great faith in PAP candidates, but this round of new additions has shaken that faith severely. What’s worse, the PAP isn’t admitting that they made a mistake with the Brainless One. If they would drop the Brainless One and say, sorry, we made a mistake, I’d think much better of them.

Sigh. I really don’t know what to do with my poll card. Initially, I was quite excited about voting, but now I feel it’s a heavy burden that I’m not sure I want to  bear. I don’t like the PAP’s attitude, but I like their policies. I don’t like the WP’s policies, but their passion is very heartening. What now? :(
