Every year 31st August we see hypocrites celebrate and shout Merdeka Merdeka Merdeka and pleading with Malaysians to raise the national flag. On that day everything done and talked about are referred as united Malaysians or Malaysia and lately with 1Malaysia. What do all these mean? What happened to the remaining 364 days?
Can our present leaders speak on the same 'language' tone to all rakyat. By 'language' I mean defining everything as Malaysians and not different 'language' tone to different community. No, they can't, it would be political suicide. If that is the case, how then are we to move forward as Malaysians to become a developed nation by 2020?
We are still so divided by race and religion and yet our leaders are so proud to preach to the whole world of how Malaysia managed a multi racial society.
Malaysia needs a make over for a complete new set of leaders, irrespective of which party they are from. We can no longer afford to have leaders that are racist, corrupt, protectionist and self indulgence.
Malaysians must start to talk, walk, eat and sleep like a true Malaysian. We must not be agitated each time we talk about religion or race. We must come to term that respect for each other as Malaysian and not by race and religion are the only way to a united and peaceful nation.
I have said it before and so have others that once a party are elected to govern they must settled in to serve and perform their duties as government officials and not as party leaders.
We cannot have a PM and Ministers who only love all Malaysians and make all sorts of promises when elections are around the corner. What we need is a true blood Malaysian PM that cares for all, transparent in all dealings and decisive and firm in decision making without fear or favor.
It is now up to the younger generation to make the right decision to elect a government that they are comfortable with.
It is my hope that one day we can really see each other as Malaysians, not by race or religion and for this to happen, we need to elect in a true 'Malaysian First' leaders.
