There is really just one reason for the Bukit Batok voters to think about. Do they believe that it is a good thing for too much political power to reside in one political party or one person?
it, too much power in one person or one party will lead to abuses of power and
corruption of power. The PAP already has absolute power in Parliament with 81
out of 89 seats. This is overwhelmingly more than the two third majority needed
to do anything it wants, including changing constitution and writing new laws.
Is this too much power given to a political party to wield freely with no means
of controlling or moderating the party should it decide to implement policies
that are unpopular or not what the people want? We have seen many policies that
are detrimental to the country and people. To the PAP they are good policies
but to the people they are bad but the people could not do anything about them as
absolute power is in the hands of the PAP.
people of Bukit Batok want to give more power to the PAP by voting in another
PAP MP? Is this a wise and sensible thing to do? Voting in
another opposition MP can only do good and no harm to the country and people.
There will be another alternative voice for the people in Parliament, to speak for
the people, not to speak against the people, not to ignore the people and the
concerns of the people.
reason alone, to dilute the absolute power of the ruling party, the people of
Bukit Batok must vote for Chee Soon Juan, vote for the SDP, for the good of
country and people. It is absolutely
silly and stupid to put all the power in one party and in one person. Anyone
telling you this is good is insulting your intelligence, taking you as a fool.
In a democracy, political power of the people must be balanced to offer checks
and balance. Too much power in one political party, even in a democracy, is not
much different from a dictatorship.
vote for your interests, for your own good. Protect yourself and your children
with more opposition representative in Parliament. 82 MPs of one party in a
Parliament of 89 is simply too much and too dangerous for the good of the
people and country. Voting for more opposition representation is voting for an
insurance policy, to protect the people’s interest.
Put aside all
the arguments, about personalities, about what they can or cannot do for you. Put
aside all the upgrading, all the facilities. It is not about Chee or
Murali. It is not about the PAP or SDP.
It is about interest and well being of the people. There is a bigger and more
important issue, a more balanced Parliament with more representatives from the
opposition camp to check on an over represented ruling party.
