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

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

Demerit Point System :
Let's say you have 0 point on 1st January 2012, and you committed the offence of Failing to Put on Seat Belt. So now, you will have 3 demerit points and this will last for 1 Year. 
If during this 1 year you have no demerit points offence at all, your 3 demerit points will be gone on 1/1/2013. 

But, if during this one  year, From 1/1/2012 - 1/1/2013, you committed another offence with demerit points, your very first offence will be extended for another year until 1/1/2014!
