Permatang Pauh - Malaysian Hope

With 2 days to go to Permatang Pauh by-election, I have my duty to spread the news to as many possible. I am not a person who fancy any individual but I am sure I want to see a change in this sad state of Malaysia. For 50 years, this country had been ruled by one political coalition, the BN. Look at the States, British, from Labor to Democrat, from Democrat to Republic, who are the one afraid of change? The BN warned of economical instability if Pakatan Rakyat (PR) is to rule, the BN also warned that Malays' rights will not be uphold should PR form the government. These are mere sayings, have we actually given PR a chance to administrate our country? The logic is simple, it is about people's power, if PR fails us, we kick them out the next election. What is BN afraid of? Or why the component parties in BN fail to voice themselves up?

Not everyone can be a politician. I am not a fan of DSAI but his charisma, his influence, his knowledge & wisdom and his logic overshadowed any other politician in the BN. I believe Tun Mahathir perhaps is the closest rival to DSAI if he is still at power. Badawi just flip-flop too much, his family and his personal life had made him the worst Prime Minister of Malaysia. His poor command of English and his constant caught in the act catching cat-nap in seminars, conferences, meetings, etc - how can this guy run a country?

Like many Malaysians, we do want to see a CHANGE. Permatang Pauh belongs to the PR, until Datuk Seri Wan Azizah sacrificed it to allow his husband to contest the by-election. This is not about an individual, this is about the agenda & manifesto of a political coalition. I definitely do not want the Permatang Pauh be represented by some bogus PhD holder. Let's go for a checkmate! Vote PR!

And do check out the video on Arif Shah courtesy of The Dandelions, you better believe it, it's true, it's true...

The choice is clear innit?
