America has 50 states, but it is only two states that seem to decide who becomes the president eventually.
Pity the other forty eight colonies.
Of course, a country deserves the government of the day the people vote in.
Just like in Bolehland (Malaysia to the uninitiated).
We deserve the Barisan government we have been voting in since some 55 years ago, that has lead the country to crony capitalism, endemic corruption in high places, abuse of power, compromised institutions of state, rising crime rate, rising cost of living and coming bankruptcy?
But maybe there really isn't much difference (?) between how the result of national election in the US of A is determined as that in Bolehland.
Here it is the small kampung constituencies, unfairly highly weighted against the larger urban constituencies, and foreigners (allegedly granted instant citizenship to keep the ruling Barisan coalition in power) who determine who eventually forms the government of the day.
