Politics in Malaysia is getting really interesting nowadays ever since the political tsunami that struck Malaysia on March 8 2008, and since that I can’t help but read the news everyday on Malaysiakini.
From what I can see, the government seems to want to do everything all at once, wanting to win back the people’s trust, and why is this the case…. A simple answer is because the opposition is stronger. They were not doing anything before this.
Imagine what will happen when they are in control again and the oppositions weaken, you think there will be a clean and fair election?? You think they care about the country? They are more concern about gaining wealth for themselves and their family. With this current turmoil happening, many put the blame on our current PM but I would think his deputy plays a somewhat similar role and deservers the blame as well.
I find this excerpt from an article rather interesting. Its in relation to our former PM who many calls 'father of development'.
“Many say Dr Mahathir was a great leader. I cannot accept this. It was his administration that left us in the difficulties we are in now. From reckless deficit spending on vanity mega-projects to a seeming incapability, or was it unwillingness, to deal with destructive corruption to the dismantling of the Rule of Law to the encouraging, nurturing even, of sectarian interests, his was an administration that left Malaysia deeply divided, distrustful and greatly crippled.”
We should vote not to get the best party in because there is no such thing, but vote to get the worst party out. I wouldn’t want to live another 30 years knowing I have to have two jobs to have a decent life to support my family.
