Why the politically aware must vote non PAP

Many people who are politically aware of the situation in Singapore and the future for their children want to vote for change.

But they are worried that it might cause the PAP govt to collapse and cause uncertainty to the future of Singapore.

Here are some facts that they should consider:

a) The majority of the voters are not politically aware and are likely to vote for the PAP

b) If all those who are politically aware vote for non PAP, they are likely at the most to vote in a few more opposition members into Parliament.

c) The PAP is likely to retain the majority in Parliament, regardless of the strength of the votes for change.

d) Even if the extreme case occurs, and the PAP loses the majority, they are still likely to be the biggest party and will form a coalition.

e) If will take 10 to 20 years for the alternative party to win over a majority of Parliament and topple the PAP.

f) If the opposition controls more than one third of Parliament, the PAP will continue to be the govt but they will change their policies. They cannot continue their old policies on GST, housing, CPF, NS and other unwise policies, because the voters want them to change these policies.

Some voters still want to check the quality of the alternative candidates before voting for them. They should not use this approach. The goal should be to vote for the alternative, so that there will be more opposition MPs in Parliament.

    Hi Tan Kin Lian

    While i support you ,
    I have to point out what you said some years back vs what you just said in this article.

    I raised the issue of political apathy years back and I remember you disagreed with me that people of Singapore then we’re not politically apathetic.

    Now you said in your point 1 contradicts what you said .

    Glad you learnt what is the reality.

    I have done my own research on singaporeans for over 20years.

    My conclusion is it’s not a mystery that the majority have unquestioningly kept pap in power and never asked for people power or alternative voices or opposition mp.

    China has never had democracy.
    China had been controlled by Emperors for centuries.
    China has never had shadow government.
    China has been controlled by One Party rule. It’s opposition is effectively inexistent. It’s a totalitarian model.
    China was under communism one party rule.
    China is now under Socialism one party rule
    Singapore is mostly chinese.
    The China chinese have given the world a solid track record that the Chinese can and have always been ruled by one entity, be it emperor or chairman mao or president .

    China has 20% world population.
    China has been one entity ruled for CENTURIES.

    With this historical evidence and track record, I have the audacity to Prophecise that Singaporeans are likely to be one party ruled for at least a Century.

    We are past half way there.

    You have to debunk me convincingly if you disagree and want to prove me wrong.

    They can do whatever they like. Ultimately power lies in the hands of the people. Frankly more than 50% of the electorate have no guts with teir imaginery fears.

  • tan kIn lIan has it wrongly:

    Why the politically aware must vote non PAP

    It is wrong to say what tan kin lian has said. Because the way he said it, it was as if the politically aware would vote pap.

    Rather.

    The politically aware has never voted pap. It is only the politically unaware who would vote pap.

    So the above needs a rewrite, which is, Why the politically aware NEVER voted pap.

  • SG China track record:

    20% humans on this planet , in one country called China have been ruled with an iron fist for centuries . This is why sg is likely happy to be ruled for at least a Century if not two, by a One Party system.

    Instead of thumbing down, debunk me with logic if you have what takes.

    @Happy to Migrate
    China was ruled by Dynasties. Under Emperors, Sometimes controlled by Eunuchs, corrupt officials, or empress/Dowagers.
    Peasants could not vote but will initiate revolutions if their lifes becames very nad. Good Dynasties lasted few hundred years, bad ones maybe a few years.
    PRC was rocked by Tiananmen square incident. So they changed internally. May not be totally but now they are world no. 2 economy. So they must be doing something right.And what direction is Singapore heading with current PAP?

  • opposition dude:

    It’s practically impossible for the kiasees to vote opposition, their fear just will not allow them to. You know it, I know it and we all know it full well.

    So until the kiasees become the minority we just have to bear with it. When that day comes will PAP truly change not because they want to but because they are FORCED to.

  • C’est la vie:

    “Politically aware” in SG !!! Seriously !!! Where are they !!!

    Stuck under a rock, or busy stuffing their faces in a food court somewhere near you, or perhaps in a Mall discharging their natural instincts, … which makes them proper Poreans, in which case they’re too preoccupied and come election/by-election/any election time, … voting the “action party” forms the very dna, that is SG through and true !!!

    Political primitiveness and paralysis is the foundation that makes SG stand out !!!

  • TruBlu:

    tkl,you are targeting the wrong sgs.

    the 30 pct here are oredy well aware.
    its the 70 pct that need to be convinced.
    and,i can say enough that to convince this 70 pct,the oppo must themselves be convinced of CHANGE instead of status quo.we are bot seeing any solid allaince but even more number of oppo parties,do you think this augurs well?

    i think not.

    oppo needs to CONSOLIDATE and proliferate.
    fragmentation is not healthy and cannot swing voters from 70 pct who are oredy skeptical of oppo?

    time is critical,no more time to waste.
    so many GEs gone and yet oppo does not learn?

  • Harder Truths:

    You miss the mark entirely.

    India is the most politically aware nation on earth – just look at their TV on non-stop politics and how they know everything about ‘democracy’?

    Would you want to live there?

    This has nothing to do with voter apathy or awareness.

    It is about BALLS and also being GREEDY / SELFISH / BO CHAP.

    This is $G mentality. It will never go away. Deal with it.

    //Singapore is mostly chinese.//

    aiyoh. past performance is no guarantee for future results lar.

    sinkie land more multi-racial lar and not so culturally homogeneous plus democratic system (officially though quite wayang).

    Taiwan lagi more chinese (more homogeneous leh ?) except for small pockets of indigenous people ? So how (debunk convincingly ?) ? if not mistaken, taiwan started to change after the passing on of chiang CK, the equivalent of our own ah kong.

  • Liu Mai Shen Jian:

    TKL,
    are you sure PAP will change their policies if the opposition controls only more than one third of Parliament seats? If PAP is still having the majority seats in Parliament and stays in power, I dun think so. Unfavourable bills will continue to pass in Parliament despite majority Singaporeans are against it. (e.g. The Protection from Online Falsehoods and Manipulation Act (POFMA) Why should we take the risk? Didn’t we have learnt enough painful lessons after the 2011 & 2015 GE. Do you want to let PAP to fool us again and again? Singaporeans should wake up by now or it will be too late. Please think carefully and vote wisely.
