Three years ago today the nation almost voted Barisan Najis OUT!
Had it not been for the large numbers of voters in Sabah and Sarawak who continued voting for the devil they know - not to mention the usual gerrymandering, outright bribery, and vote rigging - Malaysia would have found herself liberated from over 50 years of progressively more corrupt and arrogant misrule.
Think about the glorious feeling so many of us experienced on 9 March 2008, when we awoke to a brand new day in Malaysia - with the prospect of a fresh new government just within sight - one that would be responsive to what the people desire, not what a small handful of plutocratic families dictate.
Think hard about it when you next go out and cast your vote!

Eckhart Tolle - Spiritual Teacher and Author was born in Germany and educated at the Universities of London and Cambridge. At the age of twenty-nine a profound inner transformation radically changed the course of his life. The next few years were devoted to understanding, integrating and deepening that transformation, which marked the beginning of an intense inward journey. Later, he began to work in London with individuals and small groups as a counselor and spiritual teacher. Since 1995 he has lived in Vancouver, Canada.
Eckhart Tolle is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Power of Now (translated into 33 languages) and the highly acclaimed follow-up A New Earth, which are widely regarded as two of the most influential spiritual books of our time.
Eckhart’s profound yet simple teachings have already helped countless people throughout the world find inner peace and greater fulfillment in their lives. At the core of the teachings lies the transformation of consciousness, a spiritual awakening that he sees as the next step in human evolution. An essential aspect of this awakening consists in transcending our ego-based state of consciousness. This is a prerequisite not only for personal happiness but also for the ending of violent conflict endemic on our planet.
