Find the nearest US embassy, then go onto the street in front of it, proclaim yourself gay and/or atheist and run in

2018-07-14 13:19:44 UTC  

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.

2018-07-14 13:20:12 UTC  

How are you guys ruled?

2018-07-14 13:20:38 UTC  

At least theoretically by an elected official of some type?

2018-07-14 13:22:22 UTC  

Its improving. Hence why I said I think its improving.

2018-07-14 13:23:00 UTC  

But the country has been so peaceful in terms of conflict that people see no need to protect themselves.

2018-07-14 13:23:22 UTC  

Yeah theres parties. And we elect representatives for each district.

2018-07-14 13:23:54 UTC  

Are they actually the ones with the power?

2018-07-14 13:23:58 UTC  

For example I vote on a district representative and the party that represents the state.

2018-07-14 13:24:26 UTC  

And then they end up electing people to handle each area.

2018-07-14 13:24:50 UTC  

Area of expertise I mean. So id say they do have power and are elected by votes

2018-07-14 13:25:24 UTC  

The guy in charge of finance now for example was picked by the party that won the entire electoral vote.

2018-07-14 13:25:30 UTC  

I mean, is it a "we're totally democratic guise" type of deal or actually one?

2018-07-14 13:26:21 UTC  

It looks like one so far. Its definately democratic now, opposition won for the first time since independence

2018-07-14 13:27:05 UTC  

Oh, it's actually improving then

2018-07-14 13:27:07 UTC  


2018-07-14 13:27:54 UTC  

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.

2018-07-14 13:28:53 UTC  

But I said crossroads. The party can end up becoming more like the eastern europeans, or the americans.

2018-07-14 13:29:55 UTC  

Eh, Eastern Europe these days isn't that bad

2018-07-14 13:30:30 UTC  

Unless you've got a direct border with Russia, that is

2018-07-14 13:31:23 UTC  

Well assuming it exists in a vaccum.

2018-07-14 13:31:57 UTC  

I mean we share a border with thailand, pretty corrupt cops and law enforcement and rather terrifying speech laws.

2018-07-14 13:32:18 UTC  

And singapore, probably the only functioning authoritharian state I canthink of.

2018-07-14 13:32:43 UTC  

In fact that small chunk of rock could probably take on the entire south east asia.

2018-07-14 13:32:53 UTC  

Functions because it's also hyper capitalist

2018-07-14 13:33:04 UTC  

Which was my next point.

2018-07-14 13:33:23 UTC  

Extremely competitive people, and hardworking.

2018-07-14 13:33:48 UTC  

Everyone there is trained. Spent at least a year in the military

2018-07-14 13:33:57 UTC  

Not me, I mean every youth there.

2018-07-14 13:34:20 UTC  

Probably wouldny make military though as my eyesight would disqualify me.

2018-07-14 13:34:33 UTC  

Yeah, same

2018-07-14 13:35:08 UTC  

Actually, I probably could. It's the German military.

2018-07-14 13:38:13 UTC  

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.

2018-07-14 13:39:21 UTC  

Still, the politics here has been really spicy lately regardless.

2018-07-14 13:39:50 UTC  

And well, people dont like it when I compare here to the previous us ele tion.

2018-07-14 14:20:07 UTC

2018-07-14 14:28:59 UTC  

Oh thats what they were missing

2018-07-14 14:32:55 UTC

2018-07-14 14:33:10 UTC
