". . . but can you vote for me?"

Before I mislead anyone, I'd like to declare that "I'm not an elite but can you vote for me?" [Link] and my previous 3 blogs were written in jest to highlight the great divide between average Singaporeans and the elites in whites. I have learnt much from the comments here and here. I truly appreciate the responses and I must admit that I do not have what it takes to be a politician.

Funny as it may seem, this is said by someone who cares. "Be an opposition candidate as MP? You crazy or what! You may not get threatened like Denise Phua or get barbecued like Seng Harn Tong but, being who you are and what you stand for, they can certainly do a Tang Liang Hong Special on you! Unlike Tang, you don't even have the money for the sampan fare or connection to 'run road' to Batam, let alone Australia. Why bring misery to your family and friends? Do you know the suffering that Tang Liang Hong and his family went through?"

Though this helps, I still do not understand what sins Tang Liang Hong committed to deserve the calamity that's forced upon him.

It's 14 years since the 1996 Election when Tang Liang Hong and J B Jeyaratnam paid a high price for the powerful leegal justice that's so unique in Singapore.

In this coming election, are we going to see more of the Kiasu, Kiasi and Kiachenghu voters voting for more *wayangs*, *foreign talents* and *subsidized* HDB flats?

Or are we going to see more enlightened voters

?

ME as in
  • TRANSPARENCY
  • DEMOCRACY
  • JUSTICE
  • EQUALITY
  • PROGRESS
  • HONESTY
  • ACCOUNTABILITY
  • INTEGRITY and, last but not least
  • SELF RESPECT
For more than 40 years, each of us, of different age at various stages of our lives, have contributed in making Singapore a decent place to live. For the sake of peace and progress for our nation, most of us (with humble jobs) work quietly to take care of ourselves, our family. Without any dissent, we obediently follow the ruling party for the good of the nation.

Due to our decency to maintain peace and our carelessness in not realizing that almost 3 generations have been brainwashed by schools' and mass media's propaganda controlled by the rulers, we are now so conveniently dumbed down by the PAP government that anything that goes wrong in Singapore IS NEVER THE FAULT OF THE GOVERNMENT BUT the complacency of us "lesser mortals".

The announcement of the previous GST increase to 7% to help the poor which ended up as salary increase for million $$$ ministers left too bitter a taste in the mouths of many Singaporeans. The escape of Mas Selamat and the recent flooding was bad enough but the lame excuses and shifting of blame as in "taichi" shows the quality and competence of our leaders.

Instead of being walked all over and despised as "daft and complacent lesser mortals needing spurs on our hides", I believe it is time that Singaporeans regain our self respect and let the elitists know that enough is enough! We are patient, we are peaceful, we are co-operative, but we resent being treated like idiots!

- From the Oxford dictionary, *subsidized* is defined as:

(also subsidise)

verb

[with object]
  • support (an organization or activity) financially:the mining industry continues to be subsidized
  • pay part of the cost of producing (something) to keep the selling price low:(as adjective subsidized)subsidized food
So who is paying "part of the cost of producing (a HDB flat) to keep the selling price low?

Anyone who claims that a 99-year-lease 4 room flat costing more than $300k (selling price low?) is *subsidized* must be a math wizard or a murderer of English vocabulary.

Or is this the Singlish version of *subsidized* ?

The Singapore Version of subsidise is *subsi-lies*.

Yes, lies, one after another. By the humongously paid ministars.

Hi Fish

Sad to say, even before you decide to stand, the first question some peopls will ask is: what can you do if elected? And not: we will support your election to show us what you can do.

That is the reason why we can never hope to change. The mindset of those able to make the change have already been made up from much brainwashing and propaganda.

Everything the PAP does is perceived to be right and unquestionably so. Without the PAP, Singapore will never have made so much progress. These two perceptions are now cast in stone, inbued into voters' mindsets from young. But honestly, this cannot be all true. Look at Taiwan, Hongkong, Japan and China. Does their progress tell us or show us anything? Is our belief shaped by propaganda or undisputed facts

Those who voted in the early days of Singapore's independence, after seperation from Malaysia, will know that the PAP also started from basics, with candidates picked from all walks of life - professionals, hawkers and even barbers. They only mastered their expertise of governing through their so-oft-quoted learning experience, not that they know the job from the first day.

But we have never been even known to really give our opposition parties a chance, the same way the older generation did for the PAP.

So much for the kiasi, kiasu, kiachenghu voters today. To that I must add that greed and selfishness of voters play a big part in Singapore's politics. And that is something really difficult to change and I think change is not coming that soon.

Dear Anon 4:51,

I agree with the basic thrust of your comment.

How do we then explain Potong Pasir, Hougang, Anson, Nee Soon, Butik Gombak and an almost GRC win at Eunos?

Singaporeans are hopeless and deserved to be screwed further if we still vote for PAP at next election!

PAP knows that they can buy us with $$$$
