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

Be prepared for GE 13

Knowing most people (including myself) have short attention span, the many advisories to overcome possible frauds are too much to read, let alone remember.

The most important question is to ask yourself whether you are registered as a voter. If not, register now. Even if too late for the coming GE, you are eligible to vote at future by-elections and general elections.

Despite having served as election agent before, the following information is new to me:

For the above explanation in Bahasa Malaysia and Chinese:

I am afraid the information relating to those Malaysians residing overseas is quite confusing, especially on eligibility to vote; period of stay in Malaysia; and those in Thailand and Singapore are required to return to Malaysia to vote instead of using the postal voting process. Will there be any changes just before the GE?

Update on Feb 16: What Teresa Kok posted in her blog shows just how complicated and confusing postal voting can be...

Though the date of GE13 has yet to be fixed, BN and especially our PM is already making full use of the mainstream media daily as propaganda tools.

This post and other relevant information should be useful for reference on the day of election.

Update: Going to the Polls:
