Of hope and reality...

So far so good. I could not promise whether there will be more posting prior to GE13 or not. Reason? I am hitting the road soon without my laptop. If I could, I would...but it is not a promise.It seems that whilst the support is still strong in Kedah, Penang, Kelantan, Perak and Selangor, another kind of wave is building up in Negeri Sembilan and Johor. It will good if PR can retain its 4 states and retake Perak plus another 2 more states oin the south whilst at the same time create another front in Sabah and Sarawak.

However, we should not deny the reality that BN controls the media and the government machineriies including SB and MI. These last few days will be touch and go where everything can happen. I have seen and follow up Malaysia elections in the past but this time around, this is the best chance for an opposition coalition to take over Putrajaya. The last time was Tg Razaleigh's led Semangat 46 but the last Friday before election, BN produce their special effects weapon potraying Tg Razaleigh with a cross tengkolok. And from thereon, Semangat 46 fades with their infamous Deputy President Mr "bridge burner' making a dramatic u-turn and becomes BN's favourite lapdog, until 20th April 2013 when he was abandoned by 1MPM6 Najib.

Back to the present, I can sense that something is building up. BN is going all out to recapture Selangor with their feasts of roast lambs, lucky draws and of course music. How effective is BN's approach? Well! bagi makan, kita kenyang. Bagi hadiah, kita ambil, bagi musik, kita dengar. Bila mengundi, tetap PR!

Although the sense of a new dawn is real, but do not be overconfident. I have many times reminded of peperangan uhud where muslims archers abandoned their post on the hill, going for the booty. What happen next is the enemies took over the hills and Muslims were defeated in the battle. Lesson : it ain't over until EC confirms the results!!!

Some PKR leaders are now gunning for imaginary posts and have tried making veiled threats. Just look at Sabah PKR leaders who are abandoning ship because Mr so and so. This is not really perjuangan. What these leaders are doing is taking care of their periuk nasi. Something that we, rakyat marhaen, is watching closely. We have gone through thick and thin for a fair and clean election and here comes some so-called leaders trying to dictate terms? Poorah... go fly kite cause we do not need you if you are not here to fight for the betterment of Malaysia?

Apart from that, I see there are certain shift in opinion from some of the pioneers, including those residing overseas. Call it black ops or whatever, we have to stand for what we believe in. As Barisan Rakyat supporter, we have to stand for justice, demanding an end to the corrupted regime. Whilst 1MPM6 Najib has been sweetmouthing us with BRIM, PR1MA and the rest, he too supported corruption when he choose both Ali Rustam and Isa Samad as BN parliamentary candidates. Let's assume that both of them wins and BN still runs Putrajaya, Malaysia will again be dictated by 2 corrupted UMNO leaders. Is this what we want?

Yes, PR has its own shares of problems. However, between the two PR has less troubles than BN. PR has been firm in dealing with the likes of Ibrahim Ali, Zul Noordin, Zahrain, Wee CK, Gobala, Hee YF, Jamaluddin and the rest. PR has no place for them and for that, I still put my trust on PR to manage Putrajaya after 5th May 2013.

Do I condon smear politics? No, I don't. I don't care about readership. What I care about is the welfare of Malaysians and where we go from here. I cringes the way smear politics painting and accussing political opponenets of things which they may or may not do. I am not saying it is not correct but do it with ettiquette. Are you sure of the facts? Or is it just hearsay?

PR has been harping on phantom voters and BN countered that these tourists are brought in by friends of BN. Whatever, I will not forgive anyone who acts or becoming agents to phantom voters, be it from BN or PR. Do you want our future dictated by foreigners? Are we prisoners of our own devices?

Enough for now. Hopefully all of you will do your duty to come out and vote 5th May 2013. You can vote BN, PR or Bebas...I have no problem with that as long as you carry out your duty as a citizen of Malaysia.

Till then...G'nite M'sia...wherever u are...
