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

Zaid to Malay voters: Vote Pakatan for more benefits


Talking to the Malays

This week I want to talk to the Malays. They form the biggest block of voters and to them I say, this is your chance to have a new government. A new government will enable you to make a comparison with the one we have now. You have been told time and time again that no one besides UMNO/the BN can govern and protect you, but wouldn’t it be better for you to try to find out for yourself? How can we know if Pakatan would be worse than UMNO if we do not give them a chance?”

You will not lose if you vote for the Opposition. If the Opposition gets stronger because of your support but the BN still wins, then you will get more cash handouts than they had promised. Money and projects have only been given to you because the Opposition was strong—if the Opposition had been weak, you wouldn’t have gotten the BR1M I and BR1M 2.  It makes sense to vote for the Opposition if you want more from the BN. Learn to value your votes to improve your livelihood.”

The Malays need to change their loyalty and support PAS as their protector. PAS is a Malay party just like UMNO. The difference is that PAS has never been entrusted to rule the country. If the Malays can give UMNO 50 years to govern, surely it’s not too much to give PAS at least five years. The opportunity for PAS to rule (in coalition, of course, with PKR and DAP) is an historic moment for the Malays to seize. If PAS is not able to govern well then the people can always go back to UMNO. Choice is what the Malays need for their own wellbeing—they have not had it in the last 50 years.”

Again, I urge you to talk to your children and grandchildren. The monies/salaries that BN leaders give in exchange for votes do not belong to them, but to the people of this country. It’s wrong for leaders to bribe you for votes. They have not been sincere to you. It’s not wrong for you to vote for the leader/party of your choice and still keep the money. In fact, if you vote for the Opposition then the BN will have to give you more next year. Either way, you win by supporting the Opposition.”
