My Conversation With One Of The 60%
I recently had a disturbing conversation with someone I believe is part of the 60%. He is a close relative; ’nuff said.
When I chatted with him about the recent Hougang BE, he mentioned that he is not so political and is not so concerned about who gets elected and who is not. He also said that he is not so critical of any particular party.
I believe this relative’s attitude is representative of many of the 60% of Singaporeans who voted for the PAP despite the fact that the PAP government corrupt in so many ways; but this is not the place for listing them.
Maybe it is because my relative is living in a landed property which his wife co-owns, works in an industry that doesn’t yet have many foreigners and has a car to himself that he doesn’t see or feel the plight of many Singaporeans. He is not a selfish man mind you; just maybe unenlightened.
Actually, he is also affected by high property prices (he will have to pay a high price to get another place even if he sells at a high price also), foreigners competing with his children for spots in the local schools and of course the high inflation etc. His CPF is also tied up more and more, just like the rest of us.
So, why doesn’t he do anything? Is it the ‘frog slowly dying in gradually boiling water syndrome’?
The fact is, politics is every body’s business and a person’s vote is sacred not because it is secret but because it carries with it an impact on all our lives, including that of the voter. To vote one way or another because one is rather forgiving (despite serious problems with one party or another), one doesn’t want to rock the boat as things are not that bad yet, or out out simple familiarity is to do a disservice to oneself and the rest of the nation.
For those who voted a certain party in due to fear of reprisals, I urge you to think if your acquiescence and support for the party has done you any good or prevented you from suffering from their rotten policies? I will state here and now that ever since I had my eyes opened, I voted for the Opposition and will try in a legal and ethical way to get the PAP out of power.
For those who are simply apathetic or reluctant to face the reality of the current government and their negative impact on life in Singapore, you should be regretting your attitude and I must say that you are making things worse for yourself.
To the corrupt, the selfish and the cunning, your day will come.
To all Singaporeans, your vote is both a duty and a gift. The duty is to must find out about the true state of affairs in Singapore and make a stand. The gift is the ability to do something about it.
So, what say you all?
