How to deal with Fear in Voting?

Many people, especially those working for GLCs or who are civil servants, are fearful of voting for the opposition despite their discontent with the PAP.

Despite many efforts to assure these people that their votes are actually secret, they are still fearful due to many scare tactic employed by PAP people.

Let me say this: Without and doubt, Your Vote is a Secret. Anyone who says otherwise is either ignorant or paid to spread such fear among Singaporean voters.

If a person comes to you and says that he knows who you voted for in a GE, you should call the police as he would have breached the Official Secrets Act and should be charged in court.

I have known many “grassroot leaders” going around usung such scare tactics. Voters should always keep their own vote secret, never go around to brag about who they voted.

For those who are still not convince that Our votes are secret, then you can always chose to cast blank votes or simply take a holiday overseas during polling day.

I would rather you void your vote instead of voting PAP because of fear.

    During the last presidential elections, I voted Tan Jee Say. The next time, my dad went to the hawkeer center, someone gave him a Tan Jee Say umbrella. Coincidence? Nah, some one wants to drop sly hints.

    And the last three elections (GE & PE), I noticed this weird auntie shadowing me at the ballot box. I observed she’ll wait for me to cast my vote, and then she’ll exit the place same time as me. Don’t know what benefits she’s getting for doing this. But I call it contemptible.

    During the last GE, the lady at the registration counter purposely call my name out loud loud. She did not do so with other electors. As if that’ll change my mind.

  • Joshua Spirit:

    Democracy can be defined in a country’s Constitution. But this is Rule of Law. Rules based systems are absolutely all HACKABLE.

    This fact is undeniable because it’s supported by Science. It can be empirically proven .

    Democracy can be hacked many ways. A simplest way is :

    1. Tampering of votes.
    2. Climate of Fear. DURESS. News reporting many cases of political opponents being charged , accused, bankrupted, threatened.
    3. Boogeyman effect. Coffeeshop customers gave u their balls to talk about political views.

    4. Spies and Remote Controls (RC) partisan civil service disadvantaging, disapproving requests by people who are against.

    THERE ARE MANY WAYS possible.

    But do not be an idiot. I am not saying it any of these are happening or ever happened. In Singapore, we have to be careful what we spew. Sperm can be spewed but not words.

    All rule based systems can be hacked and proven hacked before . From FINSPY to creative accounting to lawyers prataying to Gerrymandering.

    Even bitcoin is hackable. Democracy is easily hackable.

    Use your brains, Singaporeans. You are living in absolute Poverty of Political Courage.

    When you let FEAR CONQUER YOU, YOU LOST PEOPLE POWER AND DEMOCRACY IS HACKED. PEOPLE POWER DETERMINES IF THERE IS DEMOCRACY. ABSENCE OF PEOPLE POWER IS ABSENCE OF DEMOCRACY. NO ONE GIVES THE PEOPLE POWER. ONLY THE PEOPLE CAN GIVE THEMSELVES THE POWER THRU THEIR OWN INITIATIVES. The gov has an official power and office. There is no official power called the people power nor office of people power. The Constitution grants the people the Power to kick out any ruling party but fear can hack this rule of law.

  • Tekkan the 30%?:

    If it’s true that our votes are traced,
    Then it’s a DISHONEST GOV anyways.
    Is it a form of Tampering?

    So, is our votes traced?

    If you believe there is such Dishonesty, what are you doing about it? See what’s the problem? Who’s the problem?

    If the 30% are traced and tekkan or disadvantaged, Singapore will not have grown or prospered , not that sg is prospering now.

    Again, if you COW to fear, you lost your power. Only you can lose your balls and lose your democracy.

    Are Singaporeans WEAKLINGS living in Absolute Poverty of Courage?

    You frucking tell me!

    Be a man and tell me.

    Seriously,fear is merely an excuse especially if coming from YOUNG EDUCATED sgs.

    Look at how they behave towards others n even their own parents n elders?
    Look at how they react to police n other agencies’ staffers.

    Meh, they afraid?
    But,i would say the BALLOT BOX IS MADE OF *CARDBOARD*, NOT VERY MEDDLE-PROOF WHILE GETTING TRANSPORTED TO OFFICIAL COUNTING CENTRES??
    CANT THEY USE SOMETHING MORE TRANSPARENT N MEDDLE-PROOF?

    AGAIN, FEAR IS JUST AN EXCUSE from farked up voters.

    Still,AN OPPO ALLUANCE IS A NECESSITY EATHER THAN A LUXURY.

    IF YOU WANT TO UNITE OTHERS, YOU,OPPO SGS, MYST LEAD BY EXAMPLE.
    ELSE,DONT KOMPRAIN AFTER GE.

    There are many ways and reasons and excuses one can give to be self preservative and give up people power thus democracy.

    But if the people are fearless, we can have democracy.

    So all excuses are invalid when one stays true to democracy and remain fearless.

    Singaporeans typically live in poverty of courage. Political courage.

    This is so true that even TCB used the analogy of Ostrich.

    But Singaporeans generally live in denial of this fact. They do not realise what harm their timid brains has done to them and their children.

    Not surprising because top scorer singaporean in Singapore education system for engineering has not invented anything like iPhone, Samsung or IBM or Tesla or Dyson or any top products you used before.
    I talking about locally born Singaporeans who scored the highest in engineering exams in Singapore.

    I not talking about non scholars. I not talking about the likes of Mr Toilet.

    Singaporeans are more interested in pink dot than political protests.

  • opposition dude:

    Doesn’t matter if your vote is secret or not, you aren’t committing a crime so you have nothing to worry about. It’s just the dafts’ silly way of thinking preventing them from voting from the opposition that’s all.

    Because if voting is/isn’t secret then 30% of voters at every election would have lost their jobs, hauled up to court and jailed and all other forms of punishment meted out. They would lose their HDB/private property or be denied getting a BTO, bus services would be diverted from their estates or MRT stations would not be opened until much later and so on.

    The last GE had around 2 million voters so we are talking about 600k people who should be living in fear because PAP used scare tactics. I haven’t read a single report on all 600k people being in trouble with PAP leh!

    >>>If a person comes to you and says that he knows who you voted for in a GE<<<

    my cousin, high level civil servant, long time PAP voter and puppy.
    tried a similar tactic.

    thinking she can induce fear in me, she told me

    "they know who you voted for., they know!!"

    I reply her,

    "they don't need to know or if they don't know, they don't need to bother go search for my ballot paper. I can openly tell them: I voted for Opposition."

  • Harder Truths:

    I have been here a long time. I can tell you that fear in voting arises from selfishness of those who only think of themselves first.

    If such people go to vote – they think ‘oh I will lose what I have – for what? why worry about someone else’s bad fortune. This is all karma anyway. I must look to myself and my family’

    This is the life of the 70% voters – the 5C-type $G local – Corrupt, Conniving, Complacent, Can’t-be-bothered & Care-less.

    Fear cannot go because the selfishness will never go. Thats is why you wil lsee the pappy victorious again. No matter how good the opposition the 5C mob will never ever support us.

  • Light over Darkness:

    Every person is given a conscience to judge between good and evil, right and wrong, just and unjust. Darkness instills fear. Light dispels darkness. Conscience is your light. Every man should listen to and vote with his conscience, unless he has none.

  • HDB flats depreciate to ZERO:

    Nothing to fear to vote against PAP. Remember 30% of voters voted this way during GE2015. So many people cannot be “fixed”.

    If you re still afraid to vote against PAP then do the next best thing – “spoil your vote”. Remember if you vote against the PAP that is one vote for the opposition and one less for the PAP. So it is “worth” 2 votes for the Opposition. If you spoil you vote it is at least one vote less for the PAP.

    Singapore badly needs a regime change. PAP is a “spent force”. It is time to bury it with LKY so Singaporeans can have a better future and a real democracy with real accountability.

    VTO.

    I have known many “grassroot leaders” going around usung such scare tactics.

    What do you think the PAP controlled gangster police would do? One set of laws for the PAP, another for the oppositions and critics of the PAP and a third set for the rest of us. Such is PAP Singapore.

    The CCP has been using such scare mongering and influences to have a firm grip on their brainwashed serfs in China, extending those tactics globally.

    Has CCP learned from Pigs, or have pigs learned from CCP?
    Who is the master teacher of greed and evil?
    Will they outdo each other?

    We have seen sillypore minions coming out in droves to parrot the great CCP, singing out their praises to the great dictatorship suppressing their own,
    rationalizing, giving out pearls of wisdom on art of brutality.
