I think I lost faith with Malaysians more than I have lost faith with an increasingly inept government.
I think his anger and frustration is due to the tiny dent that DAP made in the Machap by-elections. Like him, Lulu was hoping and expecting a bigger dent, but somehow, it didn't happen. Jed, who was on Ground Zero with TeamDAP has an analysis on this in her blog, 2020freelunch.
Lulu votes in P106 PJ Utara and N36 Kg Tunku.
I am most embarassed to say that I live in BN domain. WIth polling centers in these areasand a racial mix like that
one would expect it to be different.
But it's not. For the past two terms, the population here has taken the "take care of my rice bowl", "he paves the roads", "so what about national issues" mentality and returned BN into power. In the 2004 elections, CMF won by a 18,000 majority! WHY do we still continue to do so???
Like my friend, I am also exasperated.
and amazed.I also worry in case I join him, losing faith with Malaysians more than I have lost faith with an increasingly inept government.
Our country deserves better than someone who decides the solution to protecting her safety is by shifting into a gated community. What about you and me, those who cannot afford to stay in Aman Suria?
We need leaders who will make us into a bettter nation. One who will provide the check and balance against all the blatant abuses we have put up.
Don't do a Machap on Lulu.
Vote wisely, vote for the future of your children.
Your rice bowl is not just for today. You also need to preserve your children's rice bowl.
Look at what's happening in your neighbourhood today. In your town. In your children's school. Imagine what happens if it continues in this trend.
A simple one - PJ will be filled with more billboards than you could ever imagine. But the township would always not have enough funds for upkeep or enhancement of facilities as all the money goes to the "Sports Club" who had contracted it out at a song to a monopoly who is somehow connected to someOne.
ANother simple one. All playgrounds would have a portion of the land cordoned off for cabin space for politicians who believe more in grabbing public land than paying rent for their own space which is for their own usage.
are you tired? I'm tired.
are you angry? I'm angry.
are you willing to make a change?
The downward spiral MUST stop.
