Many people speak of changing the government. Let us get one thing straight - BN does not equal Government!

For years and years, they have been feeding us that lie and most of the people have swallowed it. But that is not how a democracy works.

The ruling party may come and go, but the government remains, completely undamaged and unchanged. So when the BN is kicked out, we are NOT changing the government. We are simply replacing BAD LEADERS!

Many people, especially the older folks, feel a loyalty to the government that has paid their salaries, given them medical and other care, may be paying them pensions and so on. They must be helped to understand, that government will still be there, looking after them. In fact, after we replace the bad leaders, the government will be able to serve them even better.

So let us make our message clear.
We are not changing the government. We are simply replacing the ruling party.
