A simple question: why do politicians have to be so dirty? Why must they lie, cheat and intimidate? When you're working for the people, shouldn't your interest be theirs and not your own?
Ok, so what if you lose in the next elections. It just means the winner is better at his/her job than you are, or you've proven to be shit in yours when you got your chance so the voters want you out. As a servant of the rakyat, shouldn't you be pleased that the rakyat has chosen someone better to service them and the nation?
Politics, not just in Malaysia but everywhere in the world, is about the self rather than the whole. When your intentions are to protect yourself and your position, then the whole becomes less important. That's why they lie, cheat and initimidate.
Remind me not to vote come next election. They're all the same. I'm moving to Australia to be with my family the first chance i get. Politicians there are probably liars too, but at least i'll be near the people i love.
