Hati kecil saya mahu melihat dan menyaksikan kekuatan BN yang ditunjangi oleh UMNO pada PRK GALAS kali ini akan semakin KUAT & BERSINAR. Kekuatan semangat BN mula berpusat dan masih segar selepas pemugaran melalui PERHIMPUNAN AGUNG UMNO 2010 yang baru sahaja selesai minggu sudah. Keyakinan dan motivasi UMNO dalam merencana segala strategi untuk memenangkan calon BARISAN NASIONAL pada PRK GALAS ini memungkinkan bahawa UMNO masih memerlukan suntikan baru dan POLITIK BARU UMNO yang diwar-warkan sebelum ini ada jelas kebenarannya mula meresap ke setiap RAKYAT MALAYSIA terutamanya ahli-ahli UMNO. Akan tetapi, kekuatan PAS yang mewakili PAKATAN RAKYAT jelas begitu bersemangat apabila memenangi & mendapat MORAL AWAL apabila begitu ramai penyokong dan pengikut PR mengiringi dan memberi sokongan padu kepada CALON PAS pada proses penamaan calon tadi. Hakikatnya, masih banyak yang harus dilakukan oleh YM Tengku Razaleigh, DS Mustapha Mohamed dan jentera-jentera BN dalam memastikan kemenangan MUTLAK BN dan meletakkan MORAL TINGGI BN untuk menghadapi PILIHANRAYA UMUM yang akan datang. Ayuh, bersama kita membantu CALON BN memenangi PRK GALAS ini dan mendoakan kejayaan BN dan UMNO terus memimpin dan menerajui KERAJAAN MALAYSIA. SELAMAT BERJUANG!
