BN, no need for the politics of fear

As we gear towards an imminent dissolution of Parliament, the leaders and political party vanguards are really getting completely violently vile in thought, speech and deeds.

Are we the rakyat and nation-loving people to be left in the lurch and to stomach all this bullying then?

Why on earth is the prime minister of the nation – a leader for all Malaysians, himself also holding a gun to our heads?

BN leaders and party wigs are making all kinds of statements; are smilingly witnessing all kinds of abuse; and allowing all kinds of rubbish to be pumped out through all the mainstream media.

Are these not akin to holding a gun to the citizens’ heads?

They say that the nation will go bust if they are not returned to power.

They say the nation will be in chaos if they are not elected into power.

Some even go the distance to threaten that there will be racial clashes if they are not returned to power.

They rile the rakyat to cry for murder – as in the incident where the crowds screamed “Kill Tian Chua”, recently.

What is all these? Are we back to a wild-wild-west timeline?

Does this country belong solely to the BN machinery and their cartel of kingpins?

Are we the rakyat to pawn our rights and allegiance to a singular political party and not remain as the true and loyal subjects of the king.

If the prime minister is going to lose his job because of BN’s failure in the coming polls, is that the rakyat’s problem?

Should it not then be solely the political party – Umno’s problems? Why hold a gun to the citizens’ heads for your own job security?

Please politicians, battle the elections by all means with sensible and legitimate justifications as to why we the voters should consider voting you to form the machinery that will govern.

Consistently enlighten the voters on what your singular and collective achievements have been, but leave the judgment to the voters. Don’t point a gun to our heads while seemingly patting our backs.

BN be reminded. Malaysia is a sovereign nation not a communist regime or socialist republic.

It is not a police state or a military junta, please. It should be a democratic nation of people with a constitutional monarchy.

Its citizens have the absolute freedom to elect democratically the political party that will form the government.

Therefore, nobody, not even the current prime minister of the nation, has the autonomy and power to demand to be returned to power.

Political parties can come in or go bust every five years, but our revered ruler and his fervent subjects remain supreme in this constitutional monarchy, Malaysia.

This the politicians especially those in BN must learn and accept out of loyalty to King, subjects and nation. Otherwise they are guilty of rigging this nation and should be charged with treason. Yes?

So politicians stop pointing a gun to the citizens’ heads and demanding that the voting population vote for BN only.

You are not indispensable as much as your opposition camp is not indispensable.

Stop gloating on all the success you have brought as seen in your ‘Satu Lagi Projek Oleh Barisan Nasional’ billboard publicity.

Success is not for you to crow; success is what you were put there in the first place to deliver.

So go bury your guns if you are serious about putting BN back on the saddle come GE13.

    Instead of intimidating the people, paranoid BN should come out of the shadow of fear and contest face to face with its opponent.

    Fear factor…out-dated.
    Race and religion politics…out-dated.
    But then…without these two …how will Umno b and his puppets are going to be successful?
    So…Najib brings out new idea…using “you help me. I help you” Nation wide.
    It will be his biggest disaster or biggest achievements.
    On for months…Najib is still waiting for feedback.
    If companies take such a long long time for feedback…that company may as well close shop.

    Here, when VIPs, i.e. elected officials, come in contact with the public, the people tend to look at them in awe and accord them too much attention and respect. Little do people realize that they are there because the people voted them in. The people holds the real power but the culture here just does not reflect that. Elected officials, especially ministers are fully accountable to the people. Ideally that is the way but “Malaysianally”, that is not how it is.

    Unfortunately too, that Malaysians in general do not use their common sense, which is evident in everyday lives. These people are easily swayed when the govt frightens them with bleak scenarios if they are not voted back in. And that in reality is how BN has been in power for so long inspite of people knowing that corruption, cronynism and injustices are reaching critical levels.

    All the GE date get closer, its abundantly, this country no longer belong to its citizens. UMNO/BN certaintly believe the country belongs to them.. Its not about independence – its simply about who this country belong to..

    Najib giving the level of handout that puts this country in precarious financial position if UMNO/BN does not lose. Its hugely irresponsible. The over-whelming evidence of electoral roll corruption is that is clear treason that the COURTS says they can’t look into..Mahathir saying that BILLIONAIRES have to be helped. (I have no doubt that the richest people in this country is not Robert Kuok or Daim, its Mahathir). Mahathirs are our Marcos, Mubarak, Mugabe and ALL of UMNO/BN aspire to be just like them..Taib, Najib/Rosmah and maybe even Musa Aman already close…There is no way we can afford one more of them much less a string of them..

    No, its about taking back this country that belongs to US.. Not to THEM..

    I cant agree more with the author. It rings a bell on what Tun Mamak always do in whacking the nation for not being ‘grateful’ to the government.

    Tun, please don’t confuse the people. Your cabinet was put to ‘serve’ the nation. It is not as if you did the job for free. When you get paid, you are expected to perform. So, stop the BS.

    But we are far beyond ‘ungrateful’ now. In fact, we are angry for the money you stole and robbed. We are angry for the racial tension you inflict. We are angry of the injustice and corrupted culture you encourage. We are very angry at you for the destroying our democratic system in place of your selfish ambition and benefits.

    There are many more but I guess you see my point. With this level of anger, we will vote against you and your kind in this coming GE. We want to save our country from you and your kind. We want to restore our pride and dignity as a peace loving and harmony nation. Last but not least, we want to observe the serving of justice upon you and your kind.

    P/S: You make me sick whenever you try to act righteous and play saint. You are the source of all evil and wrong-doings, the most poisonous snake ever seen. You and your kind deserve a very long jail term and your souls should be punished after you leave this world.

    majority rule, cannot imagine 30% wanna control 70%

    Majority support gives right to form government – full stop.

    But the responsibility of the government is still to serve king country and the people.

    Oh boy, mamak chengho ni bodoh betul!

    Chengho…it’s 70% controlling the 30% but the 30% have 40% phantom votes.
    Get your facts right…..but if you are talking about races….you can go to hell.
