"What matters is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight - it's the size of the fight in the dog"
Dwight D. Eisenhower

I love this quote! Especially after reading all the cooked up rubbish about the compromised indelible ink which will be used during this weekend's elections. I was so upset I wanted to scream "WTF?!" These idiots think we're fools. If I'm the saboteur, my aim would either be to wreck the votes by registering phantom voters, gerrymandering, stopping the oppositions' buses from travelling to the voting stations, buying votes - all low-down dirty tactics already employed. Why would I get these ink and go the difficult way? This tactic is pre-meditated. No such ink had been ordered from India. Probably the reported costs from the "purchased" ink had been used for other elections "activities".

The incumbent candidates (regardless of which parties they're from) who have performed well, worked honestly hard in their constituencies should not associate themselves with these plain rigging. They should defect to the Opposition or stand as an Independent. If they've been a performer, what have they to fear as the public will still support them? They should continue serving the people.

I take comfort in the Thomas Jefferson's wisdom. I've not read his biography but just see how powerful and relevant his words are. May they be a call to action for all of us to do the right thing.
"All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent."
"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be."
"If God is just, I tremble for my country."
"Every citizen should be a soldier. This was the case with the Greeks and Romans, and must be that of every free state. "

"Every generation needs a new revolution.

"Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories."
And to all those who don't give two hoots about the events in this country, let me bluntly tell you not to complain and don't blame others if you choose to continue being apathetic and fearful. Your kids and love ones will suffer for your fallacies if you keep accepting things as they are and not fight the good fight.
Somehow I think the ruling party is pushing their luck by insulting the intelligence of the common folk and by getting more blatant in their actions. All signs of desperation by those clinging to power no doubt. Will it come down to the title of Daniel Day Lewis's award winning film?
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."
Thomas Jefferson



  • The EC is truly mocking our intelligence. Already there's double votes in the recent postal votes uncovered by opposition party.

    My vote is going to the opposition regardless of any party except BN, so that we could deny them 2/3.

    It might be hard to do, but at least that is what I am going to do.

  • 3 days before der RAKYAT of Malaysia go to vote, BN had once again showed us how they can overturn a decision made earlier. They can just turn it around and give you stupid excuses of this and that, blah blah blah....the making of ABB, C4 man, Sami Ular, those MCA YES man, etc.

    For whatever WTF reasons is going to be, my votes is to PKR, DAP, PAS, or even an Independent party. BN go fly kites!!!

    BN, u will shit on ur pants till you drop om March 8, 2008.

  • SICK! SICK! SICK! This "bulldozing" BN is really sick in the head.
    The reason EC (BN's 15th component party) gave is that rural folks may be cheated (based on a few cases reported, must have be done by their own actors!) into applying the ink on their fingures before they go to the poll station.
    what kind lame excuse is that? They think we still live on tree tops or what that we can't figure out how the appplication of the ink should work.
    The truth is I'm afraid very ugly. If the Mongolian entry records can be deleted at will, so also many thousands ICs can also be produced. Ie. a BN voter can actually carry many ICs with different names but with the same face and go and vote in many places and they sure look legitimate.
    Come election day you will see bus loads of such BN voters bringing down opposition strong holds. LKS will be a prime target.
    Now we understand why they tear this Abdul rashid's photo. He has to be the MAN of this 12th GE - the DIRTY MAN. What a sick person he is!
    Next news to follow - make way, make way for those voters coming in buses!
