13th General Election (13th GE) Online Campaign - "Wait & See First Lah!"
How many times have you miss a good opportunity to do what you like, a great offer to buy something that you dreamed of, being offered a prospective job that you yearned for and many other god given opportunities just because you hesitated and wanted to "Wait And See First Lah".
I have many friends that miss many a great opportunities to get what they wanted just because they wanted to "Wait And See First Lah". This is very common among Malaysians and can be treated as normal and of no importance. The chances of coming across these opportunities again will always be there, hopefully during their remaining lifetime.
We can "Wait And See First Lah" for personal materialistic things and other expectations but we cannot have nor allowed such an attitude when it comes to voting in a Government. We are going nowhere with the present ruling government which has run this country for over 50 years. When 0ne PM failed to deliver, the next incoming PM will sing a new tune with more great promises of this and that. For the voters they are reminded so very often to give time for the new PM to show his performances and that is to mean "Wait And See First Lah".
Malaysians have for the past 12 general elections "Wait And See First Lah" one PM after another and see what have become of our beloved country. We are getting from bad to worst from each passing GE and if we continue to "Wait And See First Lah" our country will be going bankrupt in nine years time and with a racist like government, racism is at its peak.
What do we make of the latest PM's "1Malaysia", yet another same old rhetoric sung with a new tune. Malaysian first, fairness, equality and transparency were the rallying cry when "1Malaysia" was first introduced 1 and 1/2 years ago and what is the outcome now?
Due to pressure from a strong Opposition and a worrying decline of non malay voters, the PM has to play the good guy image by giving out a little more than usual, just like his announcement of scholarship to all top excellent students, which beg the question of why only now and will it be retracted should he obtained a huge majority after the 13th GE? Even before the merdeka survey findings were out, many had known of the PM talks of "1Malaysia" but, in reality, a "2Malaysia" actions.
Whatever good the PM is doing now, in the name of his "1Malaysia" are just baits and if you failed to see his real intention, you are finished, hooked, sliced and fried.
While the PM is playing the nice guy, he is letting loose others to play out the racist game, a very dangerous game which the PM is willing to allow it to go on. A PM who keeps on harping on the "1Malaysia" slogan while permitting others to go overboard on racism is not a leader that this country needs.
Yes, you can continue to hear "1Malaysia" this and "1Malaysia" that but the core ingredients of Malaysian first, fairness, equality and transparency are missing and not talk about anymore.
Malaysians had woke up and that led to the 308 tsunami but due to their hibernation for over 50 years they have not grown up even a bit. Now is time for all Malaysians to wake up as well as grow up. The present ruling government knows about their wrong doings which they have the power to subdue from being investigated nor charged. They see that the opposition force is getting stronger and they are all out in full force together with the MACC, PDRM and if necessary the Judiciary as well, to bring down the opposition.
Now we have a very good opportunity, standing right in front of us that can allow us to create history by voting in a new Government, the Pakatan Rakyat Federal Government, a government that cares for all Malaysians irrespective of race or religion. Do you still want to hesitate and "Wait And See First Lah"?
We cannot allow this opportunity to pass us by, for, if we do not grabbed this golden opportunity we can never have the chance again in our lifetime. Change is imminent, no if's or but's and most of all no more "Wait And See First Lah", just go for change.
