Give Me Liberty, Or Give Me Money

It is not quite Patrick Henry, and Cato would be unamused, but this is the choice that the PAP would have Singaporeans believe they are faced with.

The PAP wants voters to believe that without them, Singapore's success would vanish overnight. If this is true, then the hard work and sacrifices of Singaporeans over the last 50 years, are for nothing. Because they have only been able to build a house of cards.

The PAP, is of course, misleading the electorate. Their purpose is to perpetuate their own power, for the next five years, and beyond. And with that power they will be able to do, as they have, for the past 50 years, whatever they please.

The PAP feels certain that they will be able to buy themselves another election victory. They do this by insidiously planting the idea that they cannot be done without, by both direct and indirect means. And just to make sure, they hand out cash just before the elections.

Reject the money, and choose liberty. You will have your freedom, and the prosperity will still be there. Singapore's economic success, despite the PAP's unceasing propaganda, is not a house of cards held together by them.

While the climate of fear which envelops Singapore, no matter how much economic prosperity it has been blessed with, will be an unpleasant dream of the past.

"I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"-Patrick Henry, at St.John's Church, Richmond on March 23rd, 1775.
