Singaporeans it’s time to take action, don’t NATO!

No Action Talk only (NATO)

Dear Singaporeans, it’s time to take action. What do I mean by taking action?

Taking action like sharing news (on social media like facebook, twitter, forums, whatsapp, etc), and influence the people around you. We do not much time left, in fact we are racing with time – the 6.9 million white population paper is still in effect and it will continue to dilute our vote every year and it will weaken our power to vote for change. You do not sit in your easy chair and wait negligently thinking you can vote the PAP out in 2016, just by the power of the 40% (no. of oppositions voters last election).

new citizens(Number of new citizens per year – from Straits Times)

population(This is a simple prediction chart  – 2016 is your last chance as Singaporeans dwindle in numbers)

Just by knowing and keeping the knowledge within yourself is not sufficient, as you should have known by now that your goal post is shifting every year. Every year the PAP is importing foreigners (25k annually) and converting them into new citizens, thus naturally new citizens shall give them their votes in exchange for benefits. At the same time native Singaporeans are declining steadily due to our low fertility rate, aging death rate, and emigration (people are leaving). You need to influence and convert people into supporting the opposition at a faster rate than PAP can convert foreigners into new citizens.

Shifting goal post every year

The things you can start doing on an individual level:

  • Read and share political news from social media pages with friends on Facebook (pages like Theonlinecitizen, TR Emeritus, The Real Singapore, Publichouse.sg, New Nation, etc)
  • Add new friends that you see commenting on such pages (where they seem to argue a lot – becareful check their profile before adding, avoid stalkers or PAP IBs)
  • Talk about the problems we are facing now with offline friends, let them know what are the root causes
  • Speak out on forums, groups and exchange knowledge & wisdom online
  • Attend protest events and ask your friends along, you can meet people with similar orientation and make new friends at Hong Lim Park too

For people who cares more and have skills & creativity:

  • Set up blogs and blog your opinions about public affairs
  • If you have good artistic ability, you can draw/photoshop satires and submit them to Facebook pages like TRS, TOC, TRE, publichouse.sg, etc. I’m sure they will be welcoming these contributions.
  • Join TRS, TOC, TRE, publichouse.sg, etc as editors, writers, researchers, and cartoon artists.

If you want something done, do it yourself, don’t wait for someone else to do it for you. Too many Singaporeans expect others to do the job for them rather than get their own hands dirty.

This is a story about four people: Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody. There was a very important job to be done and Everybody was asked to do it. Everybody was sure Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got very angry about that because it was really Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could have easily done it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when really, actually Nobody asked Anybody.

Above Quote from: Limpehft

There are a number of activists already contributing and doing the above behind the scene, you might have come across one which you are unaware of. So start doing the “Right” thing now and you will not have to repent in 2016. Cheers to those who are already an activist and hope to see you do the right thing come 2016!
