Wake up Singaporeans, everything has been designed to exploit Singaporeans and let PAP stay in power

If a country has been poor or have over the years been bankrupted by its dictator before gaining democracy, it would of course be seen as worse off when compared to the undemocratic Singapore. To view it in such a way is erroneous, to present it as such is marketing a fallacy, and to brush off democracy based on this would be insane.
The proper measurement should be in the lives of its people. Are they better off today than before democracy? Did their purchasing power increase? Do they have better opportunity of education, housing, among other basic necessities in life? If they are, then they are progressing, perhaps not as fast as you would like to but at least they are on the right path.
On the other hand, we look at our lives today. Are we better off than say, 10-20 years ago? Did our purchasing power get better or worsen? Do we have easier access to education, housing, healthcare, etc., etc.? If we are not, then something is wrong somewhere, and without proper democratic safeguards, you as a citizen can’t fix it no matter how much you want to. Everything the ruling party wants, the ruling party gets. And the ruling dictators will do everything they can to hang on to power.
Also, one should remember that one the road to democracy after kicking out dictators, the new government needs time to fix the damages caused by the old government. Civil servants who were loyal to the prior ruling party frequently wreck havoc by refusing to cooperate with the new government, to the point of destroying essential documents to hide their own misdeeds under the former dictatorship. The longer the citizens wait to kick out their dictator, the longer the recovery period will be. One can liken this to a person who is ill but refuse to seek proper treatment early.
But all is not dark and gloomy. We can see plenty of successful democratic examples. South Korea is one, Taiwan is another. The people are confident, proud and fiercely loyal about their nationality. While South Korea boast of the world fastest broadband speed, freedom of information exchanges and unlimited wireless broadband at USD 18/month, we are still stuck with the archaic “bill you per kb of data” and “force you to pay $5 for caller-id”.
My point is, we, Singaporeans, can decide that we want better than what we are getting now, and we can actively move towards that direction. If the Party Against People wants and insist on moving backward, then it is time to leave them behind, put them in the right place where they belong, in our history book. That said, I think the PAP would make a rather competent opposition. What do you say?

We, Singaporeans must all sent a signal so loud to the complacent PAP that we are not “drafts” and have long been very patient for changes to unfavorable policies that has exploited Singaporeans and if they, PAP force us to jump the wall until it is not possible to protect our rice bowl and properly feed ourselves and our families 3 meals and pay for their sky high costs in everything, social unrest will then follow and if our lives are at stake, the world will see the protests and uprising that will be even worst than the Arab Spring.
