Quote of the Day :"Now if democracy will not work for the Russians, a white Christian people, can we assume that it will naturally work with Asians?"- Lee Kuan Yew, Asahai Shimbun symposium, May 9, 1991.(courtesy of http://singaporerebel.blogspot.com/2008/08/democracy-justice-equality-peace.html.... (no i wont claim this to be my exclusive copyrighted stuff like some other bloghead in Malaysia.)
Sure, it doesnt Mr Lee, you were spot on back then. Look at Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Pakistan and er.. Malaysia..... countries socially and economically devastated by that imported vermin, democracy, a secular liberal construct that has brought nothing but misery to many....well that's another story waiting to be written. Now, to my post for the day:
Imagine 2 seats, A and B. Both send a representative each to the parliament of the Republic of Bananas and Monkeys. A has 50,000 voters while B's electorate totals 25,000. All things being equal, two votes in A equals one vote in B. What democracy at its craziest best? Impossible!!! that would be the whoop of some crazed secular liberal lunatic ranting from a ramshackle soapbox set up in some god forsaken public field as the teeming rabble lap up a swill of charisma and the eternal oft repeated promise of a false dawn.(Pi mai, Pi Mai, Tang Tu jugak!)
No siree, this phenomenon is true in numerous legislative kennels that dot the many doghouses of the third world. Proof? study the total number of voters in these rural communities, just a crow's flight from one another:
Lenggong (P55) : 23223
Bagan Serai (P58) : 47111
Ha! Ha! Ha! so much for the one man one vote mantra that the democrat humbug is wont to spew as he froths at the hustings to coral that extra vote from the witless simpleton!!
Moral : In a democracy, each and every voter is equal..only that some voters are more equal than others.
