Brits Get To Vote With Clear Emotions

"Let's not forget that the little emotions are the great captains of our lives and we obey them without realizing it" ~ Vincent Van Gogh, 1889

Surat Khabar Lama says we voters shouldn't get emotional but I don't believe him a bit. How could we not get emotional voting for our future, especially when we have suffered much - thanks to his selective emotions for the past 3 decades?

"When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but creatures of emotion" ~ Dale Carnegie

Every election - general or buy-election - I would wake up emotional, not out of insecurity or unfounded fears but being a self-professed part-time psychic, I capture high emotions and hopes lingering heavily in the air. I make a point to 'deafen' them by doing serious spring cleaning and gardening.

This morning I woke up with a shudder, a joyous, hopeful one because the Brits will wake up to vote their next government later. How excitingly emotional and I am not even Brit!

Though I didn't really follow this exciting election with the arrival of refreshing Liberal Democrats to break the monotony of Tories and Labours, I cried watching Nick Clegg's first televised Election Debate that saw him emerged victorious.

If you visit the website of Lib Dems, as famously referred to, you could clearly see what this party is all about and I really like their manifesto, which you could see below.

Like Obama's, their campaign focuses on "Change", giving back the rights back to those who needed them the most and dealing with what matters most. Reading Nick Clegg's personal guarantee makes me wonder how wonderful this Ibu Pertiwi could be if we have brave men like him during this time of great adversity, peculiarity and everything silly.

Having an extra soft spot for children, I am head over heel with Lib Dems, after going through their education plans, amongst others are as follows: -

To make sure every child gets the best start;

2. Liberal Democrats want every child to get an excellent education because it is the best way to get on in life, get a good job, and learn about the world

3. Liberal Democrats are the only party which believes university education should be free and everyone who has the ability should be able to go to university and not be put off by the cost.
So unlike certain GMO that only pursue on the gifted. For me, all children are gifted if they are given the best opportunities.

"Youth is a wonderful thing. What a crime to waste it on children" ~ George Bernard Shaw

I wish my fellow Brits all the best in their endeavour, voting the people that could bring changes for benefits of all. Even if Lib Dems lost again, this time around, I know these people would remain standing because courage doesn't roar - sometimes it is just a little voice at the end of the day that says "I'll try again tomorrow" (Mary Anne Radmacher).

p.s. Did you notice how properly organised and transparent their election is being carried out? All parties get the same. !Sigh! Here in our Ibu Pertiwi, our system leave nothing to be desired.

Walter H. Judd
once said, "People often say that, in a democracy, decisions are made by a majority of the people. Of course, that is not true. Decisions are made by a majority of those who make themselves heard and who vote - a very different thing".

So, have you get yourself and your loved ones registered?
