As the Barisan government veer further and further from its objectives of looking after the interests of the people, and losing their trust, we are dismayed the 3 months old opposition coalition has yet to pull themselves together to offer an alternative government that deserves our trust. As pointed out by political scientist Dr Welsh, lack of cohesion and forward looking approach to problem solving is dragging Harapan from delivering hope.
We may react in several ways. We
can switch off and let fate run the nation. We are just so sick of the
immature and divisive talks by the politicians except for a few that we
are tired of analyzing our affairs and offering answers. We are not
solving any problems. There are no consolidated approach to confront our
government. Everything from BERSIH to G25 are based on specific
Sometimes I wonder should we not form a new party based on
common ideals of caring Malaysians with minimal politicking? All the
problems are before us and we know the answers. Just that there is no
body to materialize this hope. Sure, one more political party will not
answer our woes. But what if it is the People's Party formed by the

How many are
praying hard for divine intervention to restore good governance? We are
not only battling in the flesh but in the spiritual realm too. Believe
me, Malaysia is being fought out between forces of evil and good. Do we
have faith that good will triumph over the present evil? I believe our
country is a paradise worthy of all support to be rescued from the evil
regime. We cannot resign to giving up because we don't have the number
yet. Through patience and persistence, covered by a daily dose of hope
we shall defeat it and build a better nation. Never give up.
