A time to support the politicians


Don’t laugh, I am dead serious. Politicians are the highest office holders of a country. They run a country and are responsible for the people’s well being, and the number of people can be in millions or billions. The strange thing about this job is that not many people want to be politicians. Maybe because of its bad image that politicians are rascals, crooks. Some even said politicians cannot be trusted, worse than lawyers and salesmen.
 

The thing is that good politician is a rare breed and must be celebrated, loved and worshipped if you can find one, and be supported or protected. The PAP knows this and that is why they have raised the pay for politicians to a level that some think is crazy, unacceptable. But how, when no good people wants to step up and serve and those who grudgingly stepped out may demand to be paid in the millions? There is no other option but to pay ‘out of this world’ salaries to get the good men and women to be politicians.
 

Even as we are paying unbelievable salaries, we are still not getting the best out there. Maybe it is time to raise the salaries higher to get the really good and reluctant ones. Maybe we should cast the net worldwide to find the best men and women, citizens or no citizens, no big shit. Pay them what they want and hand them a pink IC will solve all sticky problems.
 

Ask the PAP for their experience in hunting for the few rare talents and you will know. They are scrapping the bottom of the barrel and still could not get the really good stuff. Look at Hsien Loong’s futuristic team, his best talents and you will get the answer.
And politicians are not confined to only the winning parties. The politicians of alternative parties are also politicians. They are also people, with two eyes and a mouth and a good heart to want to serve the people and country. And not only have they got to face many hazards peculiar to the profession, to step forward, they still need to win the hearts and minds of the people. It is time the people open their hearts to all politicians regardless of the parties they are from, to welcome them to fill these important positions that will affect their life and their future. If the people want more and better people to be politicians, they must take positive actions to tell the potential candidates that they are needed, no matter if they are from the PAP or not from the PAP.
 

At the moment the PAP is struggling to find the best men and women to join them. Maybe if the people are kinder and more receptive, more good and able people will step forward to serve the parties they feel comfortable with, parties with the right mission and heart to serve the interest of the people. Then only the people will have more and better candidates to choose from.
 

In the case of politicians from alternative parties, they need all the encouragement and support from the people. If the people want them to represent them, the people must stand up to say so, to walk with these brave and good men and women, to defend them when they are fighting for their causes. If the people do not think it is necessary to support the men and women in politics and let them fend for themselves in this treacherous profession, why would the good men and women risk their lives and well being to step forward to receive the bashing, to have their lives ruined, the lives of their families ruined or compromise to want to serve the people? A good case is the WP, seemingly fighting for survival, alone, without the people showing any care or support for them except during the election.
 

The people deserve the govt they get. If the people do not stand up to support the good people serving them, they deserve to have the second or third best to serve them, or to exploit them. The politicians are there to serve and not the enemies of the people. Only bad politicians are the enemies of the people and the state. It is high time the people know what they want and go out to support the politicians they want and not waiting for any wannabes to call them and say they are the best to serve them. The people need more choices and this can only happen if the politicians are welcomed and celebrated and supported.
 

What happened at Hong Lim, the turnout to support the people spending time and effort to speak for them, to fight for their cause and their interest, is pathetic. If the people did not want good people to represent them, to stand up for them, to fight for them, then they must be prepared to contend with mediocrity or worse, to have charlatans and pretenders pretending to serve them but serving themselves.
 

Oh, good politicians are not those with a string of degrees and earning big monies in their professions. Good politicians are sensible people with their hearts in the right place, to put the interest of the people first and foremost, to improve the life of the people first, not their own interest first. Beware of politicians that demand millions before they are prepared to serve.
 

Let’s celebrate the politicians together by showing them that the people need them, want them and wiling to support and to stand and fight side by side with them against all odds. The people can only protect their own interest with good men and women stepping forward to serve them, selfless and righteous men and women.
 

The politicians need the people to support and to protect them as well, especially those budding politicians from the alternative parties. They are very vulnerable and no matter how good they are, they cannot live to fight another day without the support of the people, without the people standing up for them. A politically apathetic people do not deserve the services of good men and women to serve them.

That is not the only problem of the PAP, perhaps not even the most critical one. More serious is that the PAP is also struggling to get the best foreign men and women and in greater numbers too, to come to work and live here for GDP growth.

And u can imagine how serious it is when even fake degree foreign talents have to be accepted simply because they also happened to be among the best available ones, and not taking them is also not an option, if we want GDP growth.

Very serious problems. No wonder few even want to be a Sinkie PAP politician, let alone an opposition one. What for, u tell me lah, to get all these headache to solve these serious and maybe unsolvable problems?

Where do the people who form the govt come from?

From the exact same cultural stock of the rest of the population.

Where do all the local private sector entrepreneurs come from?

--- ditto ---

Except for a few infrequent "outliers", it is unlikely that the "best" people will end up in the govt. They are most likely to be found in the private sector, "doing their own thing" in whatever their chosen field.

I'm suspicious of anyone who choses to work for the state as a career move.

@854:

>> get all these headache to solve these serious and maybe unsolvable problems?

Please lah, there are virtually no REAL problems. All these so-called "problems" you find people KPKB about on the internet are all "shit made up by people in their negative minds".

In the PRIVATE SECTOR, if you'll get problems from simply existing and conducting private enterprise. If you don't solve or manage these problems, you won't be in business for very long. In the private sector there are incentives to solve problems and severe disincentives for not dealing with them.

It seems only the govt can CREATE problems (real or imaginary) then be the ONLY ONE which can "solve" the problem, or not...and just continue existing as the agency in-charge. The state can do anything it likes, and there is no incentive to actually solve problems, because the state and the govt will continue to exist regardless.

Tiok, Singapore got no problem. Everything is fine. Wait till they sell Matilah Singapura's mother away without him knowing, he will still tell you no problem.

Sleep well and be happy. Everything will be taken care of. No need to think and stress the grey matter.

No Choice! No Choice!

Please also don't laugh and scold
me not!

To run our first world country
and economy, we need the BEST
politicians.

Our politicians are very much
under-paid.

Their salaries/attached packages
should be revised up by at least
25% to attract and retain the
BEST.

No choice! No choice!

What say U?

@ proving my point, 1029:

As I said, people just make up problems, here's proof:

>> Wait till they sell Matilah Singapura's mother away without him knowing, he will still tell you no problem.

See? This asshole just "made up" a non-existent problem, and a "scenario" which has little to NO chance of EVER occurring in Singapore.

Assholes like the one @1029 do this to "win arguments", simply by puling a piece of fiction out of their ass.

WOW! Amazing! Only in Singapore lah. That's why folks like local @1029 need to be REPLACED by more "relevant" imports. For the good of the cuntry! 😎

Welcome foreigners! ;-)

Yes, I like the quote. Correction: I ain't "smart", but I have plenty of fucking brilliant friends---real ones, not Facebook type.

Although I live a reasonably "good life" now, that has not always been the case.

>> He gonna reach the target of bonking one thousand holes soon

Wah! You over-inflate my capacity and abilities lah. I started bonking at 14/15, nearly 60 now...so let's say 45 years of getting my dick wet...Banging 200 ❋❋different pukis a year for 45 years❋❋ would make it 900...no lah, I'm not even close. And that's ok. I'm playing a game, I'm not in a race! 😂

Correction:

200 ❋❋different pukis a year for 45 years❋❋

should be TWENTY, not 200 ;-)

People who bragged about such things openly is likely to suffer from ED problem and trying to hide their embarrassment, to prove that they are still virile.

People who can just do it.
People who can't brag about it.

@1108:

Please lah, there are no more "ED problems". One pill, and you are a porn star.

Fucking hell, do you ever pay attention or not?

And BTW, I don't know what silly religious upbringing you had, but banging chicks (or guys, if that's your "thing") is no problem to people who don't have "religious hangups". It just happens, like eating or shitting or going to the mall for a haircut. It only becomes "bragging" if you have "religious baggage" which turns sex into a "scarce good", when in actual FACT (FACT, motherfucker, FACT!!) it is readily available.

So fuck you, and your religious bullshit "morals" 😈

Money is not the root for all evils.

The GREED for money is the Root of All Evils.

Because of this greed for money and more money, many good men and women have become stupid and then become evil.

Even the once good Dragon has turned into an EviL Lizard causing so much distress and sufferings beyond repair, and still continuing on its rampage without a hope for a tiny ray of light beyond the Dark Tunnel.

Unless and Until the Whole Happy-Go-Lucky Lot gets bitten and feels the pain, this Madness Will Go on and on.

Agitation in the Cyberspace is only a small and limited voice to reach out to a very small Internet savvy audience, some of whom are pro- and some are anti- the Dirty Politicians in disguise as Do Gooders, National Leaders who really care for their Out-of-this-World Millions $/£ and paying lip service in caring for the average Tom, Dick and Hary.

Mobilisation is the action to do instead of hiding behind a computer screen and keep typing on the keyboard.

Mobilise the people to support you. Go out of your comfort zone. Get into the street, to each and every house and individual to convince and influence them again and again and again ......

Until the Cow really comes home ... Good Luck!

In cyberspace, if you don't peep into people's private room you would not see anything you did not like or did not want to see.

Why feel offended when you choose to peep into the privacy of other people's facebook or blog?

Is there an intent to want to be curious and then want to feel offended?

What makes you think PAP wants the best people in politics?
Maybe PAP only wants the most "correct" or most obedient people in politics?
Maybe that's why so many PAP politicians are Generals and Admirals?
Maybe it's because military people know how to follow orders?
Maybe that's why people like Amos Yee have to be shackled?

Why? Been married 3 times. In total, more than 20 years "out of the market".

Once I have bought a spare house to "give away", I may consider getting married again, having given away 3 already. ;-)

However, at the moment it's an "all you can eat buffet"! Now got apps for iPhone and Android...easy as online shopping lah!
