I find it incredulous that some people are afraid of a change in government. UMNO supporters are telling everyone if UMNO is unseated then the country will be plunged into chaos. Other government other than UMNO will impoverish the country. The country will be unstable.
What is so perilous about it? The entity that we seek to change is the political establishment. We seek the change the political masters.
Why should the country go bankrupt? You mean, PAS which has struggled for as many years as UMNO will forfeit the victory by making the country bankrupt? After taking over the government, PAS DAP and PKR will bankrupt the country? Those taking over the government are imbeciles?
The country is going bankrupt as a result of bad governance, incompetency and mismanagement. Corruption bankrupts the enation. Profligate spending bankrupts the nation. Illicit capital outflows bankrupt the country. How can changing the sources of bankruptcy, bankrupts the country? There must be some inherently faulty logic that comes from faulty minds of UMNO and BN.
The rest of the governing machinery- the instruments of government are not changed. We will still have the same civil service. It’s not like changing the government means having to replace every single clerk, every single head of department, every district officer, every postal clerk, every state secretary, and every state financial officer. These administrative forces all remain intact. Changing the government does not mean replacing all government servants with party functionaries from DAP, PAS and PKR.
Of course the corrupt ones will be replaced. We will review and investigate cases where retiring KSUs inexplicably rushed to secure for their respective ministries some gargantuan purchases and new projects that run into hundreds of millions. These projects may have been justifiable but they may also be excuses to establish a retirement fund. Right thinking people will not object to discover whether there were valid justifications for the projects will they?
The military establishment and other security forces will still be intact. Of course we seek the replacement of corrupt army chiefs who recommend the purchase equipment and military hardware that have short-lived operational lifespan and the downright sub-standard military equipment . Why should we spare them from prosecution? Just look at the recent Lahad Datu tragedy- where are the transport infrastructure? We had to ferry our troops and equipment on commercial airlines. This wasn’t an all-out war where resources are stretched to the limit and usage of civilian transport is justifiable.
The judiciary will still be intact. Of course we want to reform the judiciary by cashiering off the 15 top judges. we do that and the judicial system will be reformed immediately. We will allow the judicial system to be self-regulatory so as to remain independent and be the place where citizens seek justice against the oppression of the rich and powerful.
The security forces in charge of domestic security, the Police will also remain intact. Just like in the military, we will retire the corrupt police and their partners in crime.
So why are we afraid of making a change? We seek the change in the political masters only. The country will not die off, if we replace UMNO and BN.
