Find the nearest US embassy, then go onto the street in front of it, proclaim yourself gay and/or atheist and run in
Dont get me wrong, I still love my country. Leaving wont fix it. And well, heres hoping that the stigma behind gun ownership here is gone but doing anything now will just get my family in trouble.
How are you guys ruled?
At least theoretically by an elected official of some type?
Its improving. Hence why I said I think its improving.
But the country has been so peaceful in terms of conflict that people see no need to protect themselves.
Yeah theres parties. And we elect representatives for each district.
Are they actually the ones with the power?
For example I vote on a district representative and the party that represents the state.
And then they end up electing people to handle each area.
Area of expertise I mean. So id say they do have power and are elected by votes
The guy in charge of finance now for example was picked by the party that won the entire electoral vote.
I mean, is it a "we're totally democratic guise" type of deal or actually one?
It looks like one so far. Its definately democratic now, opposition won for the first time since independence
Oh, it's actually improving then
Issue is, I feel like more time hasbeen spent on arresting the previous PM than ive seen on what the new party is doing. They are pretty qualified in my opinion, but they have alot of cleaning to do.
But I said crossroads. The party can end up becoming more like the eastern europeans, or the americans.
Eh, Eastern Europe these days isn't that bad
Unless you've got a direct border with Russia, that is
Well assuming it exists in a vaccum.
I mean we share a border with thailand, pretty corrupt cops and law enforcement and rather terrifying speech laws.
And singapore, probably the only functioning authoritharian state I canthink of.
In fact that small chunk of rock could probably take on the entire south east asia.
Functions because it's also hyper capitalist
Which was my next point.
Extremely competitive people, and hardworking.
Everyone there is trained. Spent at least a year in the military
Not me, I mean every youth there.
Probably wouldny make military though as my eyesight would disqualify me.
Actually, I probably could. It's the German military.
Which was a pity my parents left there. Though if I stayed in singapore, id probably be alot more left leaning than I am now.
Still, the politics here has been really spicy lately regardless.
And well, people dont like it when I compare here to the previous us ele tion.
Oh thats what they were missing
