Opposition Politics

Some people prefer to call it Alternative Party politics but I will call it as it is.

It's definitely never easy to be in opposition politics. In fact, it is easier to quit from opposition politics than keep on to it for life.

This is why I have utmost respect to JBJ, who in spite of all the persecution and verocious attacks from PAP, he stood his ground to his last breathe.

I have wanted to quit Opposition Politics for Three times in my whole journey because it's really a tiring and thankless process.

As a friend always say to me, it's easier to make money than getting involved in opposition politics. He concluded that I don't like money. He is not the only one who have said that to me.

Each and everytime I wanted to quit Opposition Politics out of disappointment or pure fatigue or just felt betrayed, my heart went soft whenever my mind keeps reminding me of the cliff we are moving to without any sense.

"Let them die! Let them suffer!" Many people utter these while leaving the opposition political scene or simply migrated out of this country.

Yes, that would be the easiest way out without all these hassles. Living happily ever after for myself and my family isn't that difficult at all. Even my friends from the PAP side have just thrown in their pink IC and renounce their Singapore citizenship without any regret.

Every time I witness a person just quit Opposition Politics, I felt envious, although part of me felt sad.

Most people would have realized I am very good at Mathematics, making calculations and deductions that many would never have thought of, but in reality, I failed in calculations for my own self interests.

It's always easier to quit rather than fighting on. But I am destined for it.

 

Goh Meng Seng

    Mr Goh you are a warrior, not a quitter. We need warriors and there are not many of them. Without warriors the weak,the voiceless, the marginalized and the vulnerable will have no one to speak up and fight for them. Thank you for being our warrior.

    Our oppo is much too fragmented still owing to “parochialism”.
    Best example is OPPO LEADER,WP.
    We can safely conclude that if oppo parties choose to remain reluctant to truly UNITE,the voters will be just as reluctant to choose them.

    It is such simple observation.
    If oppo do not trust each other,would the oppo be able to make voters trust them?

    As Newton declared,e=mc squared.
    In our case ,e(election outcome)=mass(voters)× c(confidence/trust).

    So simple and yet oppo LEEder refuses to choose.

    This is not fighting the good fight of faith because his faith is in himself
    and if so he fights alone basically because the vast majority only care about themselve$ and pap, even the favored opposition, is delivering “the good$” which, like noose around their necks, will strangle them to kingdom come.
    Yes, they all have been $old to SIN.

    “In his welcome remarks, SDP’s chairman, Prof Tambyah noted the significance of denying the ruling People’s Action Party a two-thirds majority to prevent changes being made to the Constitution at will. This was echoed earlier by various party leaders during lunch as they voiced the need for the opposition to win more seats at the next election.”

  • Singaporean R Free Rider:

    I had said before, never vote Opposition as they cannot even answer a simple question like What Can Opposition Do for Me?

    Worst, Opposition like Goh Meng Seng are not honourable man.

    He said he will stop writing and commenting on politics but till this very day, he is still writing.

    Worst of all, he speak for the rich, people who live in private apartment and never did any charity to help the poorer Singaporeans.

    Never vote Opposition.

    If WP continues its parochial ways,I will vote for any other oppo party or,best of all,an Oppo Alliance,if they come to AJ.
    If only WP,I will vote for PAP.
    Screw me all you want but this is my sincere protest against a self-indulgent oppo party.

    Response: 往上看是挑战( look up is challenge),往下看是危险(look down is dangerous),往远处看是美景(look far is scenery),往近处看是人生(look near is life)。
    A strong heart will look up and look far. A weak heart will look down and look near. A pure heart will not look anywhere, only look at his/her heart.
