When you look at the pictures in this report and consider the crowds who throng Pakatan's ceramahs wherever they are held, even in the kampungs, especially with Anwar as one of the speakers, and the 30,000 crowd who turned out just for Anwar's nomination day yesterday, you get the sense that Barisan's days are literally numbered.
This, whereas Barisan has often to resort to expensive gimmicks, including giving free dinners and engaging international artistes to perform to attract the crowds to their functions and ceramahs, the Pakatan crowds have to fork out money from their own pockets as contributions.
Does that not say a lot?
I guess the ruling Barisan dinosaur knows it too.
But of course, Barisan has huge resources it will not hesitate to use to try to cling on to power.
But can anyone really stop the people from wanting to vote for change - and a critically needed one at that, after 56 years of the same old packaged promises, sweet talk, flawed and partisan delivery that benefit a select few a ton and the rest of the Malaysians only marginally.
Of course, you could use all tricks at your disposal.
And these appear to be formidable and in no short supply.
So it would serve Pakatan well not to be over confident nor slack in the bid to show that they are the better and the only alternative for now.
And all Malaysians also owe it to themselves to come out in numbers to vote.
