Note: This is the letter done by Abdullah’s spin doctors. The letter was sent to every home during the election campaign and up till the polling day. The copy I was keeping was given to me by a young Indian lady wearing a BN vest outside the polling centre at SJKC Puay Chai in SS2, Petaling Jaya. Guess what, the great Micheal Chong was there to supervise the distribution of these letters. 

Many young Malaysians in Petaling Jaya have claimed that they were touched by Abdullah’s letter. Such sentiment could have been translated into votes for the Barisan Nasional candidates in 2004. 

I’m reproducing the letter here for Malaysians as a checklist for the performance of Abdullah’s  government. I must thank my son Zunxian for typing it out for us. Happy reading! 

LETTER 

There’s no better time for you to be heard, so… 

Why Vote ?Because your vote is your say. And as part of the young generation, your say really matters ! 

With your vote, you have a real chance at shaping the
Malaysia that you want. For you, your family
and the future.  

Oh, it’s all just empty ‘politics’“Isn’t politics just for politicians?”“Will voting change anything?” 

Where Have You Been?!Everyday, something is happening in government and politics that affects your life. 

Our well-being, incomes, personal safety, freedom to live peacefully and so much more depends on the policies of the Government. 

How Can One Vote Make A Difference?It may be difficult for one vote to make a difference. But if u decide to vote, and the person next to you, and another, and another… 

If each person tries to make themselves count, then collectively each vote makes a difference! 

But it has to start with you. Think about it! You have nothing to lose but everything to gain by voting. 

I Don’t Feel The Urgency To Vote.That may be because you feel comfortable and stable, and that it doesn’t really matter who gets voted. 

It does. The comfort and stability you feel now is due to years of hard work and dedication by a party that delivered these results, and more. 

Shouldn’t I Vote For Change? 

BARISAN NASIONAL has always been about change. 

We never stand still. From then till now, we’ve worked hard to develop
