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

If you're not going to speak up, how is the world supposed to know you exist? “Orang boleh pandai setinggi langit, tapi selama ia tidak menulis, ia akan hilang di dalam masyarakat dan dari sejarah.” - Ananta Prameodya Toer (Your intellect may soar to the sky but if you do not write, you will be lost from society and to history.)

How we are being short-changed...

The above two examples are obvious to us when we purchase ordinary things, but while we rant and rave over minor items, our national leaders are deciding on mega amounts which most of us would not know about or would not be able to understand the legal jargon or political procedures involved...

In our national context, politicians' cronies are getting richer, the ordinary folks are getting poorer, and our politicians appear to be getting dumber by signing lop-sided contracts in favour of crony businessmen and we are made to pay... even when we don't need to... according to Tony Pua...

"It makes absolutely no sense for the Government to insist on making the payment when the Government itself disagrees that work has not been carried out. The only possible reason for the PKA and the Minister of Transport, Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha to insist on making the payment is to protect KDSB. This is to ensure that KDSB does not get into financial trouble with its bondholders..."

It is one thing to win the next GE to form the federal government, besides having to deal with sore losers who might create problems at the time of handing over, and sabotage thereafter, many people believe the current leaders are 'transforming' the nation until it is almost bankrupt by then. It is going to be really tough for Pakatan leaders to sort out the financial mess like North-South Expressway, PKFZ and Syabas. Just imagine having to deal with legally signed documents which we are legally bound to comply. So while Najib has his fondness for initials like ETP, KPI and what have you, the people are going to be really pissed off when the time comes with WTF!
