Have you ever woke up from a dream and when you try to resume, you’ll end up somewhere else? I’m sure you have. Yesterday I dreamed of something beyond my imagination (my imagination can run pretty wild you know).
I was in my late 20’s, standing in front a sea of people. I was giving a speech, a manifesto asking people to vote for me. Yes, I became what I hated most, a politician.
The party I stood for was called, Green Party (Parti Hijau), the logo was a leaf.
I couldn’t remember exactly what my speech were, but somewhere along the line, I was urging people to go green. That includes, car pool, recycle, plant trees, don’t waste paper, minimize electricity, don’t kill animals, be kind to your neighbours, reduce rubbish and you know how it goes.
If I win, I will monitor real-estate developments, industrial toxicity, pollutions, school environments, youth development,.. basically any 2 things involving earth and education. And I promised to make my reports readily online using Google Docs (I have no idea why I said that).
I reserved my bashing towards both BN and PR. Let them burn each other, while I do my work. If they’re caught guilty, let the court decide, if not, God is fair..
I wanted power not to primarily help citizens, but save the world from total destruction. I want the kids of the future to live healthy and run wild like they’re supposed to. To do that, I need to preserve the nature and minimize pollution.
The crowd wasn’t too pleasant about my speech. I guess they were expecting the same routine, CHANGE and Economic Growth. Every American president (or politician) recycles that line (as far as I know).
It’s a long shot, after all I wasn’t sensitive enough about household income and it certainly doesn’t benefit the voters directly. But I was happy, to give a speech about the planet with thousands of people listening to my points.
I woke up the minute I finished my speech. I tried sleeping again, in hope that I could push the resume button and see whether I won or lost (I think it’s the latter). Unfortunately, I couldn’t get back to sleep. So, I went jogging 😛
ps: President of Green Party huh?
pss: Late 20’s? Sh*t, that’s the next election!
