What are the reasons not to vote opposition?

Progress Singapore Party’s walkabout

In the past, they warned you that if you vote opposition, your estate’s HDB upgrading will be delayed, you’ll be in the back in the queue, they also threatened you with withdrawal of services – such as buses and kindergartens. They also alarmed you that voting opposition will mean rubbish piling 3 storeys high in your estate, investors will run away, “your women will become maids in other countries”.

All of these have either stopped or been proved untrue.

Voting opposition put a stop to all these political nonsense.

So, what about now?

What are they threatening you with now? Upgrading? Services? Investors run away?

Opposition wards get upgrading. Services continue. Investors did not run away, just look at Singapore since 2011 when WP won a GRC and held the most number of seats post independence.

Investors continued to come here.

In fact, PM Lee even boasted about how he should get more billionaires to Singapore – and indeed we have now one of the highest concentration of billionaires (30) and millionaires (more than 100,000 at last count 3 years ago).

Voting opposition did not cause our women to become maids in other countries.

On the contrary, voting more opposition into Parliament seems to have done wonders for Singapore!

So, what are the reasons not to vote opposition? Tell me.

  • Opposition with Good Calibre:

    Unless GE is rigged, Opposition Parties with Good Calibre and of Gold Standard deserve to be ushered into Parliament.
    No reason why they shouldn’t.

  • NotMyProblem:

    Vote alternative parties give you two MPs working in your constituency. The fake PAP MP will work (wayang) hard for you.

    When you vote PAP MPs, he/she only sleep in parliament.

    So vote the alternative parties! It’s good for you

  • Educating Singaporeans:

    Let me educate you, Singaporeans.

    If you vote opposition, corruption will set in.

    Look at WP, after winning a GRC they:
    1. award all contract to their own kaki.
    2. appoint their own kaki to high position

    This is what democracy for you.

    Look at Taiwan Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)
    After winning the election, DPP reward and appoint all their own kaki.

    Facts:
    https://youtu.be/qiSHK1MsbQI

    DPP Taiwan democratic system is same as PAP Singapore.

    So, why stupid Oppie supporters only critical of PAP SG but not DPP Taiwan ?

    Calling all PAP supporters, use my above facts to shut down any Oppie who are critical of our beloved PAP.

    PAP.GUARANTEED.WIN.GE2020
    Vote PAP, Vote for 9% GST to give PAP 9 months bonus.
    PAP Huat, Huat, Huat arh

  • REGIME CHANGE is the solution:

    Here are the reasons to vote opposition:

    1) If competition is always good for the consumer (also a voter) why should politics be an exception.

    2) The opposition can ask PAP tough questions in Parliament and demand answers.

    3) It will force the PAP to be more open and transparent.

    4) They can force PAP to be accountable.

    5) If Opposition holds around 30% of the seats in Parliament it can stop PAP from changing the Constitution just to benefit the PAP.

    6) It PAP only has a slight majority in Parliament it cannot be arrogant and heavy-handed with Singaporeans. It will have to listen to Singaporeans.

    7) Politicians and civil servants will be forced to earn what they are paid.

    For all the Ang Mo worshipping aka Ang Mo Tua Kee (AMTK).

    What say you stupid Oppie supporters ?

    Tell you why the votes for Opposition is NOT that forthcoming…too Many Parties and too many silly candidates making a fool of themselves…should the oppositions Limit themselves to 3 at most 4 and agree to disagree on matters for the People and themselves…we can have an Alternative Govt and a good opposition in the PAP even though they are loaded with idiots currently…as an opposition like back in the 50s they were formidable and that was why they won in a Landslide in 1959

  • Why "opposition"?:

    “Opposition” means loser. Only loser become opposition. If PAP lose, it will become opposition.

    So why should people vote for self-proclaimed “opposition” losers?

    Do the US Democratic Party call themselves “opposition”? NO.
    Do the UK Labour Party called themselves “opposition”? NO.

    No self-respecting party in any country will call themselves “opposition”.

    It’s time to get rid of this loser label imposed by PAP.

    Singaporeans FEAR.

    Singaporeans worry being found out to vote against.

    Singaporeans misperceive what democracy is is Anarchy when in fact is a basic necessary to give the powerless people a power against the powerful ruler in a system where absolute power is given to ruler.

    They lack Independent thinking. They regard anything uttered by state media and govt as independently audited truths, thus they switched off their questioning minds.

    Yes, voting more opposition into Parliament is the key,but not VTO.

    Remember the last GE when the opposition fielded every seat, and the possibility of VTO scared the s…. out of everybody? And what was the result?

  • Tremendous:

    There are villagers who won’t vote for opposition. A lot of them. They know that the sovereign fund losses are piling up and long gone. They know that accommodation depreciation cannot be resolved without kicking some cans down the road. They know that the nation is endangered, and moving towards extinction in less than 6 years time because the total fertility rate hasn’t been there for years. They know that the new village chief cannot resolve those kind of issues. But these villagers don’t have a mind of their own. They look like humans but behave and think like walking idiots.

  • Fence Sitter:

    As a fence sitter, I will give you 2 very good reasons why NOT to vote opposition:

    1) Health: COVID-19 has proven Singapore has the best healthcare system in the world, at very little or no cost for Singapore citizens. This is due to our Medisave, Medishield and Medifund, along with PGP and MGP which ensures the most needy are all covered. Which other country can achieve this? Some European countries do have very good healthcare systems but at exorbitant tax rates.

    2) Economy: The government has been wise to save our surpluses over the past few decades, which can be drawn on during this crisis. The opposition on the other hand, have not contributed anything but yet think of squandering all the reserves at one go.

    Go get a feel of the ground. There is no way our government will get below 65% of the popular vote.

  • Bobo:

    We heard from the ground and at the rally in GE2015 that many people had decided to cast their votes to oppositions, but what happened after that? Do you still want to believe in those dramatic people and wasting your own precious time to fight for them? Let us see if Dr Tan’s supporters are really that strong and not easily moved with just a free packet of XO sauce chicken rice.

  • NOT INTERNET BRIGAGE:

    1) Someone once told me if we Vote for Opposition, and if Opposition wins, eventually over time, Opposition will do the same as PAP.

    So, might as well just continue to vote PAP.

    2) Oppositions DO NOT have political experience.

    3) Oppositions are NOT highly educated.

    4) People in OPPOSITION are not politically innept.

    5) If Opposition wins and during the transition period, will the country essential system (eg: CPF, Transportations, Hospital, HDB, etc) continue to run smoothly?

    6) As long as there is NO riots, no need to vote Opposition.

    7) YOUNG SINGAPOREANS says – “Im NOT interested in politics”.

    8) If we vote for PAP, Singapore is finished.

    9) Look at Hong Kong last year, if that happens to us, Singapore is finished – spoken by a PBM aquaintance.

    @ Fence sitter

    Medisave, Medishield and Medifund are all “backdoor tax” – you don’t need to triplicate them under different names.

    PGP and MGP are all “hollow log accounting” funded out of tax too.

    Fence Sitter: 1) Health: COVID-19 has proven Singapore has the best healthcare system in the world, at very little or no cost for Singapore citizens. This is due to our Medisave, Medishield and Medifund, along with PGP and MGP which ensures the most needy are all covered. Which other country can achieve this?

    @ Fence sitter

    IF ‘WELFARE” is that bad, how come PAPpypolitics/PAPpynomics is the first in the world to budget for coronavirus handout?

    Why US Congress is in deep bitter fight for (said to be) proposed US$2 trillion which equates to roughly 10% of its GDP base in handout?

    Australia throwing A$60 billion in fiscal stimulus and govts around the world throwing money on to peasants so soon as their central banks ease monetary policies?

    In other words, govts around the world is MONETIZING DEBTS and no one single govt is growling in anguish protest that this “excess” spending is tolerated even encouraged to the detriment of the sustainability of global financial system?

    I am afraid I don’t share your shallow pandering to PAPpypolitics strange economic catcalls of imagined prudency when tonnes of money were thrown into infinite infrastructure spending to beautify GDP statistics instead of investment in productive economic enterprises – this has exactly the same impact as govts around the world going into debt to fund artificial beauties, not productive enterprises. Peasants might got impressed, but not me.

  • Vote for 1 Oppo and get 2 MPs:

    After 50 over years of independence one thing is very crystal clear – You boot out your current PAP MP and vote in an Opposition, you will get 2 MPs working very hard for you.

    As citizens, we need to create a horse race in each ward if we want the best of both worlds. That should be the trend for the coming election.

    If you want your PAP MP to server you double hard, vote him out.

    He will be at the sidelines with a larger team to impress you while your Opposition MP you have elected to work triple hard for your welfare.

    This is a life example in Potong Pasir. Everyone knows this. Seetoh did exactly that when he fought for many years and won over Mr Chiam.

    VTO your PAP MP out and get 2 MPs to work hard for you.

    @ NOT INTERNET BRIGADE

    IF WE VOTE FOR PAPpypolitics, WE ARE FINISHED, I can concur to that.

    NOT INTERNET BRIGAGE: 8) If we vote for PAP, Singapore is finished.

    IF WE VOTE FOR OPPIES, bright and very capable men and women from seemingly nowhere will step up to the plate, advising the new government.

    WE NEED TO CHANGE THE STRUCTURE TO CHANGE THE STRATEGY – the current mob is like titanic waiting to sink to the bottom of the ocean deep.

    Remember Harvard Professor Chandler wrote this thesis

    structure + strategy fit = performance.

    If the political structure is impediment, the strategy won’t work and the organisation trapped in perpetual crisis of survival fights of no chances. against external threats and environmental turbulence.

    https://www.coursehero.com/file/p14pdn2/Structure-follows-strategy-Alfred-Chandler-concluded-that-structure-follows/

    SO TO MAKE IT WORK, (economic) STRATEGY MUST LEAD BY CHANGING (political) STRUCTURE.

    Remember this – the Economic Committee for Future Economy have already told us that they have no recommendation of the way forward. In other words, PAPpypolitics/PAPpynomics is trapped clueless of strategy.

    WHERE GOT SURVIVAL CHANCES, when 4Gs have been around for at least 10 years and DID NOTHING OF STRATEGY CHANGES?

    there is no choice for voters, they have to vote for change in political structure IF WE ALL WANT TO SURVIVE.
