Voters are stupid.
I don’t care which party wins the 2014 general election. What I hope is there will be an iron-fisted leader who dedicates his or her life to the welfare of the Indonesian people and has the guts to dismiss his or her corrupt aides.

Since its establishment 47 years ago, the Golkar Party has been a strong and stable party. The advantage of Golkar lies on good management from central to periphery and from national to regional levels.
Besides, Golkar’s mechanism does not so much depend on the chairman’s figure, but totally on the way that its members give the best “treatment” to their voters and constituencies.
That’s why Golkar always has a heart for the voters and has always finished among the top three in every general election.

Let’s choose Mr. Clean, Susilo Bambang Yudhonoyo. I will support you Mr. President. You are the best of the best. I believe in you Mr. President, maju terus (move forward).

Golkar may win the 2014 general election but the question is who will be the next president? Not Aburizal Bakrie, even if Golkar does not have any other candidate.
Somebody should write a report on how politics works in this country then force the politicians to do the opposite. We could sit back and watch this country blossom.
“I appreciate his data, but I’m afraid the President has condemned politicians from other parties as corrupt. It’s best to leave it to law enforcement agencies and to the public to judge [which political parties are more corrupt],” he said. It doesn’t take a genius when practically every day there is another corruption case presented to the people.
Act like a president, Mr. President! You have been elected and have the mandate to do what is right according to the law.
It is your opportunity to make the country right. Don’t leave a legacy as a chicken president.
Indonesia’s composure has once again been tested by a Malaysian plan to recognize the tortor dance and the gondang sambilan instrument from North Sumatra as part of its national heritage. What do you think?
