Quite a while, I have taken a backseat from blasting non-stop politically every day except on some cases where some people asked me questions about what's going to happen in Malaysia in the next 3-5 months or so. I had two things to consider writing as Chinese New Year is coming up in the next three days and given of the current scenario that is happening in Malaysia, I thought of bringing up the first matter, that is on being a voter perspective.
There have been politicians from both sides talking about good and bad about one another but the worst part is dragging their family members into the mess merely to get the brownie points. And also I have observed by listening to audio recordings of many ceramahs by the Opposition politicians and excerpts from what BN politicians to say, I noticed that you don't even need to be confused on listening who is correct or not.
You only merely need to see what situation are in and your pocket. In fact it is a keep it simple and short thing that will help you decide whether you need rectification or not.
It's a sad thing that to this day, there are still people out there, especially the Malay community that are still looking at race and religion factors, disregarding the more important basic need factors such as living and standards of life. The four horses of Apocalypse does not know any skin and religion, and so does the economy.
In fact, many of us still are not sincere with ourselves. That is in fact a problem, a trait of a lazy native. Maybe you have to answer a few questions about yourself and if you are those who have kids, picture what happens if you fail them in the next 10-20 years or so. Empowerment would be needed then, but not to the point of making yourself confused and full of information to be swallowed in one single go.
Well, since there's at least another 50 days to go before the rumored date of elections, you need to think hard of the questions - non-political but your needs. From the way it goes, it looks like the casino owners in PWTC are unlikely to change, even if the claim to say so because of the need to feed their warlords and pitbosses.
If you are senior citizen, you may think of this as the last shot of a better future for your grandchildren. If you are someone like myself, having problems of livelihood also ask yourselves. And as my friend said, if you keep choosing a white-collar criminals in the elections, it you yourselves to be blamed for any disaster that is to happen in the future for your choice was proven wrong. I keep mentioning this in commenting to some people who lamented after by-elections in Bagan Pinang and Hulu Selangor.
In line of keeping it simple ask yourself this (you can add questions apart from that):
1. Which coalition is presently running the government? How long?
The first question is important because the subsequent questions will be that under that present government:
2. Are you having problems getting things that can improve quality of life?
3. Do you really mind paying exorbitant prices and owe monies to the banks just to get a place to stay in the city?
4. Are you angry but still will to pay twice of the actual price just to get a good car or changing one?
5. Have you look your children / grandchildren and notice how at times unhappy they are at times?
6. How you feel if white collared criminals getting away free in immunity whereas they actually did it?
7. Do you notice that the number of non-Malaysians coming in for low labor are out of control?
8. If you are being raped by the person whom you chose, would choose that person again? How about replace person with a party?
9. Are you happy with your present savings that can last you for the next 20 years or so?
10. Have you picture yourselves being in countries such as Greece?
This where you have to be very sincere with yourself. I am not going to push much but would give the breathing space for you people to think minus political mileage and factor. You have to decide. Sure, the brilliant minds are being put in violent persecution by the mediocre minds, as Einstein said.
