If you believe in GOD pray. If you do not believe in GOD, also pray! Its done bar the announcement of the victor later tonight. Whether Pakatan Rakyat win, lose or are robbed of their victory we know that the change we have been working for these last few years have taken place!
I have said a few days back that there will NOT be another May 13th this time around because at the first sign of this happening PAS have pledged to deploy their rank and file to protect the non-Malays! We have protected each other with a fierceness that is born out of respect and a love for each other!
I have said that it will be common sense that will decide the victors or the vanquish of this election and from the manner our people have conducted themselves throughout this historic Sunday we have come of age politically. The issues this election is being fought upon is good governance – nothing more and nothing less. Surely if our people have been responsible enough to conduct themselves with decorum and discipline any incoming government cannot do less!
I have said that Pakatan Rakyat will win this election – no ifs, no buts, no caveat on winning – simply that Pakatan Rakyat will win! Just look at what happened today – a general election where our own people are policing the very nuts and bolts of the election process! Before this an election meant people lining up like sheeps and herded like cattle's by the authorities into a line and everyone waits patiently in all weather for their turn to pangkah the ballot paper and then they go home. The authorities go through the motions of counting the ballot papers and then the UMNO led Barisan Government continues with their merry making, pillaging and plundering for another five years!
But not this time around!
As I said win, lose or robbed of victory Pakatan Rakyat has won this election because from today Pakatan Rakyat is a force to be reckoned with in Malaysian politics. It is not Barisan Nasional that says this because Barisan Nasional cannot and will not say this – it is the people that has already said this though this 13th general election. This is not the Pakatan Rakyat of the 12th general election when it won five states, not the Pakatan Rakyat that had its MPs and a State taken away from them in a manner that has forever shamed UMNO. No …this time around this is a Pakatan Rakayt that truly represents Malaysians! Not just Malays, Chinese, Indians, Dayaks, Kadazan or any one else that calls Malaysia home – but a Pakatan Rakyat that gives notice to Malaysians that it is ready to govern Malaysia - if not this 13th general election then certainly the next. Sometimes you have to lose a battle to win a war. Maybe this is the battle that Pakatan Rakyat has to lose to win the war not only against the UMNO led Barisan Nasional but more crucial against the mind-set of our own people. Only time will tell…another few hours.
So wait my friends with bated breath and be resolute in your resolve to do what is right for our future.
I know that Pakatan Rakyat have put the fear of GOD into this UMNO led Barisan Nasional!
I know that from today arrogance and greed will be kept under lock and key and taken out ever so rarely by any serving politicians lest the Rakyat tires of their antics.
I know that I no longer have to look over my shoulder if I am not with another Malay to protect my flank or my back. A Chinese, Indian, Dayak, Kadazan or any other Malaysian will do! We are one now. This 13th general election has done that!
Kita sudah UBAH!
