This statement must wake many people up, eyes popping out and asking what is that? When the govt floated the idea of a rogue president, no one bothered to ask what was that? Only those in the know knew what was the whole idea behind it but would not think it was right to talk about it or to ask question about it. The masses as usual gobbled it up without knowing why or what it was. Rogue president, must be bad, just like the Americans calling
and Iran evil and North Korea militarizing China South China Sea or MacDonald hamburger is good. To
the Iranians and North Koreans, they loved their leaders, and to they are just building up their
islands and protecting them. To many, to put it directly, the Americans are the
The Americans are going to have a Presidential Election soon. By the way, how many people think George Bush Jr and Obama were rogues? The slate of presidential candidates is all rogues except Bernie Sanders. Ted Cruz was called a liar on national TV by Trump and did not sue him, thus admitting that he is a liar for not defending his integrity as a wholesome person. Jeb Bush could be just like his brother, it is in the blood you know, for invading two countries and murdering two Arab presidents by fabricating a big white lie on WMD. Donald Trump is saying all the wrong things, like a rogue, but the Americans love this rogue and have a high chance of electing him as their president. Hillary is not called a wicked woman for nothing. But she too could be the next American president. The only decent chap was the poor guy called Bernie Sanders, not rich, not a natural aristocrat, would not qualify to stand for our Elected President.
By now I hope you will get the idea. What is rogue to one person may not be rogue to another. One man’s meat is another man’s poison. So, what kind of rogue president are we talking about? From what we read about the Workers Party and their handling of the Aljunied Hougang Town Council account, they must be rogues right? But the voters insisted on voting them, the ‘rogues’ to represent them.
So, when I say, ‘We want a rogue Elected President’, it is not far fetched. What to some is rogue but to the people the ‘rogue’ may be what they need, a ‘rogue’ president to work for them, to protect their interests. Do I sound confusing? Was Ong Teng Cheong a rogue president? Or would Tan Cheng Bock become a rogue president if elected? Did we have any rogue president before, I mean elected Presidents, not nominated by the ruling party?
This hopefully will set you thinking on a Sunday morning.
