Another silly thing

August 6, 2007

To be happy about:

Checked voter status on the Suruhanjaya Pilihanraya website (literally the Elections Commissioner) and yes, I am registered as a voter. WOOT!

As the general elections are due to be held at the end of the year or early next year, please register yourself as a voter NOW if you’re eligible. It takes about 4 months for the electoral roll to be updated with your details, and you should be able to make the deadline before the General Elections. And don’t say that your vote doesn’t make a lot of difference. If you don’t vote, you don’t have the right to complain about the government you get.

AKA I wish to see a bigger opposition next round, along with a massive clean-up in the govt.

When Abdullah Badawi came to power 4 years ago, his team made many felt disappointed, as a lot of it were carry-overs from Mahathir. I said aloud to most people that I, for one, would give him a chance. Abdullah needs to get used to running the government before he could start making changes, especially in getting rid of certain politicians (the one who uses Rain as an excuse for cracks on the MRR2 come to mind).

I’m hoping that Abdullah springs a surprise and kicks out all the deadwood. Change the ministers. Orders a proper cleanup of the Houses, and a general audit on EVERYONE in Parliament, then moving down to the civil servants. This may take quite some time, but I believe it will be worth it. MPs and the Wakil Rakyats especially must take this audit before the General Elections (if it is possible, if not then do it after the GE).

Abdullah has the harder task compared to Mahathir. He’s got to build up the HUMAN capital, while Mahathir’s was simply to build the structures. Changing people’s minds is not easy, and Abdullah’s job is made much more difficult with certain individuals who say that Parliamentarians calling each other Bodoh (stupid) is acceptable debate, calling citizens goblok is a measure of their intelligence, and waving traditional weapons to so-call defend their own race’s agenda surrounding him.

Throw them away, Abdullah Badawi. You don’t need them, and neither, most importantly, does Malaysia.

    Regarding to this statement “If you don’t vote, you don’t have the right to complain about the government you get.”.

    Complain never gets you anywhere, if you want something done do it yourself. Which directly deplete the reason on why one need to vote.

    Screw votes! Iron claw overthrow FTW! Support the rebellion FTW! eat more pizza FTW! FTW FTW!
