A Masochist's Innate Need for Pain

Maybe, this would be worth considering in light of what I wrote regarding Penanti a few days ago. It reeks with reason and only reasonable people will aver that to traipse unwelcome into the territory of the fanatic is to suspend rationality for a lark with imbecility. A no-brainer that Penanti (with a core support of around 4000 or 30%) will deliver a slap in the face and those banner headlines i alluded to earlier will become the pennants of a mock funeral.........

If common sense prevails and no candidate is fielded, then we neutrals would welcome that as the focus is kept on the economy. For in the end, to paraphrase Clinton famous campaign line, "its the economy, stupid" and once that is got right and 1 Pribumi is fleshed out and is firmly in place, the votes from the native vote bank will surge and offset the loss of the non-Malay vote. Bukit Gantang, Bukit Selambau and Batang Ai indigeneous proclivities have been good indicators of a trough being reached and a nascent resurgence is underway.

But then again, some have a tendency to fritter away the spoils of the moment on the altar of future expediency in the delusionary notion that those wanting away will scamper back if policy statements like this and decisons like this are made. Sorry, but history shows that you can only reel them back on your OWN terms if the native vote bank is in hand which simply beggars the question, why does one have a penchant of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory...ingrained masochism?

Revert: Perplexing isnt it that we, Malay-Muslims strive so hard to give up hard fought gains while the Nons snigger and swagger their way into the corridors of power....
