No Experience Needed to Change Political Masters

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.

Corruption is the no.1 nation killer.

Most Msians in this globalized era are deeply occupied and engrossed in bread-and-butter issues of the day and do not, understandably, have the time to reflect and ponder on the menace of corruption and as expected left it to the governing authorities to handle the problem.

And still many Msians didn't realize that their bread-and-butter woes are going to get from bad to worse if they do not pay heed and attention to the fact that it is corruption that is the root of all evil in this country and that is why life is getting harder and more difficult each passing day.

The average and many Malaysians, perhaps due to their struggling and preoccupation with daily living, are blissfully unaware that for decades the BN-led government has been indulging in wholesale and widespread thieving and rampant corrupt activities at their expense; hoodwinked by most of the BN leaders whom they have voted and endorsed to serve them.

By right, based on the nation’s overwhelming wealth, Msians should be far better off and enjoying a much higher quality of life while poverty eradicated. Instead the contrary is being witnessed as Msians are being denied their rightful dues by those who are in power that are corrupt and sharing the spoils among themselves.

In order to see Malaysia as a great, prosperous nation in the future and as a country which offers hope and bright future for all of our descendants, there is an urgent need for Msians to stand united together, no matter what the price in the fight against corruption.

It is time for the right-thinking Msians to come forward, stand up and be counted in a real and serious struggle to fight and eliminate any of the nation leaders practicing corruption to face the music and return the loots that has been pilfered from the people.

The wealth of the nation belongs to the people. It does not belongs to politicians, civil servants or organizations and there need to be a concerted and sterner action taken to regain all that has been unfairly lost by the rakyat.

Also, it is time to spring clean the country, weed out and punishes any crooked leaders no matter what rank or status in society he or she is, to make sure that no one is above the law.

For this to materialize, Msians must, in the coming 13th GE vote for those whom they have faith and confidence and belief; those who will not betray them and who will hold political office with the fear of God, diligence and integrity to serve the people comparatively.

For some people, this might seem a titanic struggle that is better being left alone. But the fact of the matter is, if Msians don’t unite and fight against corruption and remove those who are corrupt from holding office, hence, witnessing the dreams and aspirations of an economically strong, beautiful, wonderful Malaysia will be lost because of dishonest leaders and rampant corruption in the UMNO/BN-led government !!!

Sememangnya Kumpulan Syaitan Yang Dikenali mengikuti sepenuhnya ajaran sifu mereka yang menipu Nabi Adam dan Hawa sehingga terkeluar dari syurga kurniaan Allah swt.

Sebelum dihumban kedalam neraka dihari akhirat nanti sempat lagi mereka bernazar/berjanji untuk menyesatkan seramai mungkin anakcucu Nabi Adam AS dengan berbagai cara termasuk menggunakan wang ringgit/harta dunia. Walau pun mereka tahu mereka akan kalah didalam pengadilan dipadang mahsyar tetapi mereka tetap dengan kerja-kerja penipuan mereka sehingga hari kiamat walaupun mereka tahu Allah maha mengetahui tentang penipuan mereka Mereka sanggup berpura-pura tidak ingat/lupa tentang kerja-kerja penipuan yg telah mereka lakukan selama lebih 50tahun.

Sesungguhnya ALLAH tidak lupa, hanya MELAYU sahaja mudah lupa.

Its the duty of right thinking Malaysian to change this corrupt to the core regime. It is our holy duty to change this regime who facilitate and encourage illicit outflow of funds. It is our duty to stop this regime from draining our country dry.

Only the 3.5 million UMNO members are the people who are now in deep delima. Thier mindset will be if BN is out then their rice bowl is gone. The other impact will be BN cronies are afraid that PR will go deep in the contract documentation to prosecute them.

Can you think that many contracts and defence purchases was made recently. This clearly shows that commission is more important for their cronies.

BN government failure to dissolve the parliament is to secure all the contracts. The other reason was for to put in record 4 years service as PM in order to secure his benefits if BN is wiped out from Putrajaya.

Yes change we must. The country has gone too far down the drain and if we continue to let it slide, we'll be hitting the bottomless pit soon. The problem with us Malaysians is that we are too simple minded and we believe all the craps the BN have been drumming into us. We are just like sheep being led to the slaughterhouse. And changing the government is only the beginning. We need to clean up the civil service and then give them the freedom to manage the country as civil servants are supposed to do. Let's dump all the sycophants and replace them with real professionals. Only the we will be on the way.

When PR takes over the governing of malaysia, there will surely be NO corruption .Its for the simple FACT that PR is made up of EQUALS, Each component ie PAS,DAP and PKR will watch over each other thereby giving malaysians CHECK,COUNTER CHECK and BALANCED governance.
With bn, only umno talks and the rest like mic mca etc will be the echo effect. Except for umno, the rest will be vying for the leftover scraps.
The indians are now pissed up with bn because ZUL Nordin has offended the sentiments of the hinddus. MIC mca nither umno checked him.In all temples, the talk is Zul nordin.
Now , did mic say the indians are returning to bn. Nooooooo they are being driven into the arms of PR.
Im sure all hindu indians who have MANAM, MARIATHEY, SOODU and SORENEH will VOTE PR and throw the tembikai into their toilet bowl.
Letrs see what mic, ppp, ipf,nallas shit of a party, hindraf,mindraf and msp who theindran is president of ,are going to do. DARE they call for a rally to show their disgust or put their tails between their tails and keep hiding till the coast is clear.
Bloody sorey pundek fellas !

There is light at the end of the tunnel,but for the brave Malaysians only.In one of the toughest and closest fought GE's ever,when change is possible we still have the tongkat,crutches and wheelchair dependents wailing for the continuation of the ruling regime Umno/BN.

When will these chickens finally grow up and come out of the chicken house and be counted.After being surpressed and treated as dependents of the breadcrumbs mentality,it is high time these people try and stand on their two feet.At least try to regain some lost pride and dignity,before finally calling it a day.

On May 27,2010 Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Idris Jala proclaimed that at the rate the BN government mismanages (and plunder) the nation's wealth, Malaysia will be bankrupt by 2019. If that is the case,what is there to lose by letting Pakatan take over and correct the trend ?

States, especially Penang and Selangor administered by Pakatan have being performing so well in managing their budgets. They have increased cash reserved by huge amounts compared to BN, despite the Federal government not cooperating and even sabotaging their many projects and efforts for the rakyat. There is enough proof that Pakatan have the capabilities to take our country out of the BN doldrums.

Satu perkara yg saya dan ramai lagi inginkan selepas PRU ini adalah: NO MORE POLITICS until the next PRU yang akan ditetapkan tarikhnya. When I said NO MORE POLITICS, I mean, no more logo, bendera dan lain2 yg berkaitan dgn politik dlm semua acara resmi kerajaan. Kalau boleh larangan juga untuk menyebut nama wakil rakyat atau MP dari parti mana. Kami sudah letih dengan semua ini. Seperkara lagi tentang laporan polis setiap kali tidak bersetuju dgn sesuatu, tanpa usul periksa, tanpa bukti, hanya hearsay, perbuatan ini hendaklah dihentikan. Kalau tak silap saya hanya kes jenayah saja yg boleh dibuat laporan polis, kes2 sivil hendaklah diselesai di mahkamah sivil... maaf kalau cara saya tulis tunggang langgang, saya cuma seorang pemandu bas..

Who are those people afraid to vote for change of government? Most of us might think the Malays, while I believe the numbers of unafraid Malays is building, I see that the Indians' dwindling, the Chinese' wavering and the rest of non-Malays is fickling that made me so baffled why the non-Malays cannot rally an overwhelming force against the government of Ketuanan Melayu they despised of? I hope my perception is wrong because with or without the non-Malays I'll vote for the change first then leave my life to fate.

Untuk orang UMNO :

1. Adakah pimpinan PR sebegitu bodoh untuk mem"bankrap"kan negara?

2. Adakah pimpinan PR sebegitu bodoh untuk membiarkan negara kita di serang orang asing?

Lihat tukaran coach untuk pasukan Hoki negara. Adakah pasukan Hoki negara terus merudum?

Lihat coach Harimau Malaya, kalau dah kalah banyak kali, adakah masih layak di teruskan?

Negara Jepun banyak kali bertukar PM, adakah Jepun jatuh eknonominya?

Adakah rumah kita yang di tutup dengan debu dari hari ke hari, di biarkan begitu sahaja? Mestilah kita buat pembersihan.

Maka tukar kerajaan, bukannya menjahanamkan negara, tapi menyelamatkan negara.

Tukar YDP Agong setiap 5 tahun, adakah menggugat pentadbiran istana?

Tukar Gurubesar sekolah, adakah Gurubesar baru sengaja menguru harakan pentadbiran sekolah?

Sebenarnya : Pimpinan UMNO sekarang bersifat tamak, rakus dan semakin sombong.

Yang kasihan, penyokong UMNO bawah, biar kais pagi makan pagi kais petang makan petang, asalkan pimpinan UMNO semakin kaya dan shopping sana sini, anak belajar keluar negeri.

Najib is afraid to be be investigated for Scorpene submarine corruptions and Mongol girl's C4ed murder.
It is not about an election at all.
It is about life and death....investigation on many sleazy deals....jail sentences for many rouges and thieves...all created by Mahathir.
It's People Power...the rouges and thieves are afraid most.

Dato, You have scored 10/10 and got it all right in the coming change towards a two system Government. Once it jadi there will be NO TURNING BACK for the people and UMNO will be dead forever.

Basically, many people are warming to BN and wanting to give it another chance because they got the 500rm two times and think BN is so very generous. They have forgotten, the balik tongshan statements, the temple destruction, cow head, etc. Money just talks very loudlu. A very sad case. All I can say after BN is returned to power - padan muka to all who voted for it and pls don't ever complain of unfairness, etc. They deserve to remain downtrodden.

Anonymous,  31 March 2013 at 16:49  

Anon 14.53, I had the initial qualms about these goodies being given out, for after we are humans sometimes carried away by material things. But on further feedback from various sources they are not that stupid or ignorant as we think they are especially the kampong folks. Kita ambil apa depa bagi, undi lain cerita. As they say politics in one week is a long time. Just wait and do our best for a change- change is must - otherwise lo and behold, BN will become more corrupted and arrogant. Then they deserve to remain downtrodden as you say.

If a young Malay students who has a PTPN loan but chooses to vote for BN, I have this note for him.

1. If Pakatan wins your loan is cancelled. You save some 5 figures in loans. You will be able to leave the country if you have never serviced your loan. Why should you worry if the government goes bankrupt? How sure are you.

2. If BN wins you have to pay up your loan and will not be able to leave the country if that loan has not been serviced. You will remain in the Immigration black list.

Tell me, what have you gained by voting for BN. Fly kite with that Malay unity crap?

UMNO-BN people are the one group in Malaysia today most afraid of change and that's why they propagate this circular logic - retain the people with experience in running the country forgetting to explain convincingly how they acquired the experience to be a P.M. or cabinet ministers if they didn't get elected in the first place. So this trash that only 'experienced' politicians are qualified to run this country is dished out to all. But, this invites the inevitable back-lash from an increasingly literate crowd with access to alternative social media that, arrogant patronising behaviour, notwithstanding cash handouts, sends the unintended message that only UMNO-BN warlords have the brains while the rest are brainless or brain-dead.

No office,institution or department in the public sector collapses because of a mere change of leadership. But systemic failure and ultimate collapse is a reality for this country if corruption, nepotism, cronyism, and all the negative isms are allowed go on for another term.

Malaysia and Myanmar's place, in terms of economic health, in ASEAN will be sooner reversed than we are prepared to admit. Many people can see a new, vibrant resurgent Myanmar, just as well after decades of socialist xenophobia. And for us, after decades of kleptocracy by a privileged minority, falsely touted as Alif-Ba-Ta nationalism, the results are not too difficult to envisage, unless there is change in Putrajaya.

Dear Sak AK47,

I wouldn't worry that Pakatan will bankrupt the country. I am more worried that if Pakatan cannot win this election because of some marginal stupid supporters of UMNO, then it is almost a given that our national debt will soar even higher.

The real worry, when Pakatan takes over, is whether Pakatan has the guts to cut down the number of Ministers, Deputy Ministers and "Special Envoys" to USA, India, China etc. Many of these positions are redundant and were created merely to please the 16 component parties of Buruk Nasional.

So, please, if anyone can get this message out to the big wigs in Pakatan: Malaysia has only 27Million people. We don't need a bloody bloated cabinet.

I enjoyed reading the comments here.It make me think you guys here are so determine for change among yourself.I doubt very much that this will materialise.

Daim has said in chinese newspaper BN will do better than 2008 because DSAI will not be the right candidate for PM.It appear the only safe deposits for PR is Penang and Kelantan and Selangor wwill fall into BN back.

PR coalition must be united to stop this onslaght else PR will miss their best opprtunity of winning.

Masih ramai yg tidak mahu ambil tahu hal politik walaupun ianya sangat penting ketika membuat pilihan membuang undi.2 jenis, yang pertama totok umno yang akan berselindung di sebalik pendirian "politik itu kotor dan menjijikkan.yang kedua jenis yang memang tidak mahu ambil tahu atas dasar "politik itu kotor dan jijik",bilangannya juga ramai yg tiada kesedaran politik ini walaupun umum mengetahui ianya mempengaruhi masa hadapan setiap orang.
