First of all, I do not share the empathy of many fellow Koreans regarding - protesting to have the president impeached. The president, in many cases one could argue has violated the constitution - especially when it comes to the protection of its people. In which case, I totally stand side by side with many, that this president is impeachable in every single way without slightest doubt.
However, one needs to ask, if he were ever to get impeached by the members of the National Assembly; those blood sucking, law-bending sharks, not much different from president himself, would we be anymore satisfied by the "other guy"? It is mind-boggling to me, that this, such great nation (even with such anachronistic, dictatorial president, my country, Republic of Korea still is one of the very successful countries in the world) just cannot find one decent human being to be a president.
Why do we always satisfy ourselves just to have “some guy” to be our president? Why didn’t we ask such questions before, to ever have such undeserving candidate ever come up in our ballot? I mean doesn’t this country, people want and deserve to have someone worthy of that position? Not a religious hack, a liar, who doesn’t seem to know thing about “diplomacy,” or being a “statesman” but another pathetic joker on the international stage of power politics to represent me, my people and my country. Didn’t we, didn’t
But sure to our fault, we’ve got what we asked for – the guy, the candidate who were involved in more scandals that one could ever imagine in a single campaign, gets elected to be the President of Republic of Korea. Yes, it was us who voted for him and yes, it was us who didn’t show up on the Election Day. In politics, those who show up only get counted and the winner gets all. He has the Blue House the air force One –or equivalent of that-, sits in a “President Desk and Chair” but the worst of all is that, he makes the decision which does change our lives. This time it was the Mad-Cow or the meat of the Downer cows that will be imported to be on our dinner tables.
Yes, we elected him and it sucks. It sucks big time – sorry I couldn’t find more polite way to say this, but it sucks. This administration got rid of more ministry and councils which included the advisors who could “advise” not to have these kind of troubles, but guess what?! MB, who seem to HATE the internet and the Korean people who uses it, shut down the Information Agency (국정홍보처) only to have Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism (문화체육관광부). I’m sure we don’t need those agencies, in fact MB administration needs this agency more than any other administrations but guess what, they got rid of it themselves… no one to blame though I simply can imagine them blaming on the former administration – it seems to be the only thing that they are very good at it. Fine liars, just very fine liars.
At the end, are they – going to erase this posting on ground of “defamation of character?” like they did to the guy who had written the “Impeachment Song” (탄핵송) and uploaded on the internet? Please, just before you do that, re-read the constitution, Chapter 2, where it talks about the rights of people – I’m talking about the KOREAN, ROK constitution! Weren’t I supposed to believe in those, laws, especially those marked with the big fat bold lettering, saying constitution? Seriously, I thought I was living in DEMOCRATIC country.
I have never doubted about this country, especially this one - ever since studying an international politics and whatnot, I have always believed the people of this country. Korean people have somehow always managed to come up with something to get them out of those horrible times. Despite all the achievements since the 20th century, since the creation of the "
Sometimes, it's people who makes the great leaders, throughout the times of bad and good - it is not the one being who can manage such complex system like running a country. Honestly, I don't think this is anyone’s fault. Surely, MB was NEVER EVER the choice of mine to be a president but we elected him. We elected the guy who we always knew to lack in decency and conscience. We might not like what he did and most definitely what he will do in next 5 years time, however declaring a war on the president never solves a problem. After all, he is the one who can order the police to crush all the "peaceful demonstrations.”
Now would be a good time, that people of this country, who always seem to find solutions for its problems better than its leaders to come together and once again prove the greatness of the "people"(민중) I, desperately wish that peace would soon come to this nation.
