It should be hilarious if it was not that serious an issue. Even in the times that we now live in where ethics, civics, integrity and credibility of everyone are held to standards that are subject to scrutiny and debate by an informed and educated public, we have people in Malaysia who have the audacity to state publicly that they will choose as their leaders “the lesser of the two evils!” Huh?
The lesser of the two evils?
What are we doing here? Why do we have to choose between the Devils or Satan to bring onto our side? Who then are our adversaries? God himself? Or are we involved in the final battle of the Universe where victory at all costs must be attained if humans are to survive? Are we in so desperate a situation that we would welcome a choice between Pol Pot and Marcos, between Gadaffi and Sadam or between Najib and Anwar? And of course Mahathir will surely ask “Where am I on that list?”
Check yourself and ask if you are not selling your soul to the Devil and Satan for less than what it is really worth. I know that the Devil and Satan are not good paymasters. Ask for too much and they may just decline for they know that there are always suckers elsewhere who will take them on for a song. Not a song of the P Ramlee genre but for any of the one hit wonder that comes and goes on the pop charts but continues to resides stubbornly in our heads where it goes on and on and on like a broken record. For once you commit yourself to the Devil and Satan even if you may want to opt out of your initial pact with the Devil and Satan it will stay with you like that broken record that plays in your head!
Come on lah……this is about choosing a decent, respectable and upstanding leader for our country! This is about our future! We deserve better than the lesser of the two evils! Are we so bankrupt of goodness and decency that all we have to choose from are two “evils?”
Enough about giving DSAI a second chance – he has had too many. Enough of giving Najib another five years to do what he did not and could not do in his first five years! If we have to then let us miss a generation – the generation that these two ‘evils’ have come from! Both sides have blood on their hands and we are done with the kettle calling the pot black or the kettle calling the pot black. Let us now away to another era where respect are earned by men and women who understand that leadership is a privilege and a responsibility that comes rarely to anyone. That real power resides with the people they serve. That the common good of our people and the sovereignty of our nation are principles our leaders must live by. If they do not, then off with their head!
