I am not surprised to read editorials, articles and news reports warning people about potential catastrophe should they vote for the opposition on saturday (8th March). This is an old, worn out and irresponsible tactic used by the unscrupulous politicians and their cheer leaders.
Regardless of the outcome, Malaysians must be encouraged to vote on their conscience and not out of fear and intimidation. If government can be changed peacefully in Thailand, Australia, Pakistan, India, Taiwan and elsewhere, why must there be bloodshed and violence in Malaysia?
Members of the police force and army are also normal citizens with family members and their own responsibility to ensure safety and peace for their loved ones. Malaysians of all races and creed must respect the wishes of the people and whatever choice they make in a democractic process. Otherwise, we are making a mockery of our own political process.
I would like to assure you that there will not be violence, there will not be Taliban ruling the country, there will not be bloodshed. It will be a day when Malaysians can exercise their rights to ensure they voted in a reliable, transparent and responsible government.
Malaysians must dump racial politics, dirty politics and irresponsible politicians and their cheerleaders. It is time for a new and confident Malaysia to emerge where interests of all communities and individuals are protected.
VOTE for a better Malaysia! Politicians who wanted support from the people must work for it.
