How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain

Never argue with an idiot, otherwise people won't know which one of you is the idiot.
Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright - until you hear them speak.

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no
responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

Kim Quek sees through Najib's 'transformation'...

while...

Pakatan shines through

"Najib in his concluding speech said that Pakatan Rakyat, if elected, will destroy the country.

But how can that be when the Pakatan-controlled state governments have been consistently commended by the Auditor General for their prudent financial management, and distinguishing themselves for keeping corruption at bay and introducing transparency and accountability to their respective administrations?

Isn’t it a fact that their good governance has been recognized and confirmed through the robust influx of private investments, in spite of having suffered ill treatment by the BN federal government?

Isn’t it a fact that the Pakatan state governments have treated all the races with fairness and justice?

If the Pakatan political leadership has proven to be incorruptible and competent and just in their management of resources and treatment of the people, then isn’t it logical to conclude that such a political leadership is exactly what Malaysia needs to check the current slide and restore confidence and good governance to move the country forward?

I am quite sure that the people have the good sense to make the right choice if informed of the true facts.

So the electoral battle ahead is a battle of information dissemination.

If Pakatan Rakyat succeeds in conveying the true picture to the majority of the people in time for the next poll despite BN’s stranglehold on the mass media, then the current Umno assembly may prove to be a watershed event. It may go down in history as the advent that triggered the enlightenment of the people to the folly of clinging to a defunct feudal political system.

Such enlightenment will cause a decisive break from the past – the replacement of race-centric politics by governance-centric politics – and sweep Pakatan to power to usher in a new era for the nation."
