Happy Election Day

If you would notice only a handful of people would greet Happy Election Day.  Election-day cliché does not include an expression of happy greeting.  It’s usually a reminder to “exercise your right” “vote wisely” or broadcast to “let the fire of democracy burning” because “together, we build our future”.

I love elections especially national/general elections.  This is because it is the day when there is a total shift of power.  All of a sudden, ordinary people at this important day become more powerful than those who hold an electoral position.  The power is in their hands/votes.  Also, during election day all people’s individual power are in equal standing.  The 1 vote power of a poor bloke is as equal as that of the 1 vote power of a rich dude.

With this plain thought of having the power (even only for a day), people must feel at least “happy”.  So let me greet everybody a Happy Election Day!
