    especially this one, the one who vote to "hurt" the face of PAP but not to win, goes quiet suddenly:

    Obviously the 35% was a slap in the face for the establishment. How do you think TT feels every time he shakes hands with a foreign dignitary and people are sniggering behind his back saying that 65% of the pop voted against him?

    If it took only 1 election to make them kalang-kabut, what do you think would be a series of such elections where the PAP-endorsed guy couldn't even get a majority even if he won?



    Again you're seeing things in a black-and-white fashion: Halimah wins, PAP wins. Halimah loses, oppo wins. No in-between scenarios.

    As I said above, if a series of elections turned out farcical results ('lame-duck' prez), what do you would happen?

    1. The PAP wants face. They will probably give up tweaking the EP and go back to the original appointed prez system. End of wayang. We all know that the EP does diddly-squat anyway, despite his 'custodial powers'.

    2. The non-PAP endorsed candidate wins. Could be start of a Singapore Spring with knock-on effects on the GE, but don't hold your breath.

    Boycotting doesn't achieve either of the above scenarios.



    Again you're obsessed with the win-lose dichotomy, considering only extreme tail outcomes. Your above scenario, while highly desirable, is hardly achievable at this moment, because:

    1. 70% are PAP supporters. No way you can get a 50% boycott.. Even if you can get an implausible 25% boycott (diehard oppo supporters), what do you think will transpire? 75% will turn out on voting day, hand Halimah a resounding 95% of valid votes victory, and the PAP will announce to the entire world that Halimah is most popular prez in history!

    You think the media will announce the no. of boycotters?

    Do you know tens of millions of Americans don't vote at all every election? Are they factored in when we discuss whether Trump or Hillary won the popular vote? Do you know when analysts look at the popularity or mandate of the POTUS, only % valid votes are studied?



    Theoretically, yes. But a unified front is not achieved in one day or one election. (Be my guest if you can convince 50% to boycott.) Many small steps have to be taken.

    Let's start with minimizing Halimah's vote share. Boycotting does not even take the first step.

    Stay and fight is one thing. Being sensible and WIN it, is another. Fighting and keep losing makes no sense. These people are fake opp supporters.

    Real supporters will find ways to win it or protest against it.

    1. And how do you 'win' by boycotting? Every boycott vote is one more vote to Halimah. OTOH, every vote for the non-PAP endorsed candidate reduces Halimah's vote % and increases the odds of the 'oppo' candidate winning. Even if Halimah squeaked through by a small margin, as did TT in PE2011, it would have sent a strong message. When you've figured how to 'win' by boycotting, let me know: I'll nominate you for the Fields Medal.

    2. I didn't go 'quiet suddenly'. I simply stopped posting in this thread because I'd said my piece.

    3. You 'neglected' to paste the one statement that exonerates me from ESND's fraud list – namely my stand that a walkover was the most likely outcome (in red below).

    Sheez, you're as deceitful as you're thickheaded.

    THAT IS NOT THE POINT.

    The point is:
    Even if Halimah wins (I actually believe she is very likely to, given that 70% of Sinkies are numbskulls), we should aim to minimize her % vote as a stinging rebuttal to the govt and a strong message to the international community about our wayang EP.

    And the way to minimize her vote is to vote for the non-PAP endorsed candidate(s). Any spoilt or absentee vote will increase her % vote, not decrease it.

    Tony Tan squeaked home with 35% in 2011 in a 4-way fight, making him a 'lame-duck' president. It was a disgrace for the PAP, and it showed the world that 65% of the people did not support the elected prez. It made a mockery of the whole system. Why do you think the PAP jumped through all kinds of inane hoops to rig TCB out of this election by coming out with this silly concept of a 'reserved' presidency and miscounting the number of elected prez terms?

    As I said in another post, the only time when I'd consider spoiling my vote is when two PAP-endorsed candidates are contesting each other.

    As it stands, it looks like a walkover this time around.

    Message: Win or lose, minimize Halimah's vote by voting the other guy.

    i think what i said in my previous post answers your queries:
    Quote Originally Posted by rectmobile View Post

    I don't resent, i just don't get myself involved in their game because sensible people are not manipulated to put up a show for them in their rigged game.
    You only vote when you can win them, not fighting the losing battle. People like you are the reason PAP always win. I never say boycotting will win them. Boycotting by huge numbers will throw them out indirectly and make them insignificant and will not allow them to control and manipulate you . ( boycotting including their rigged policies as well)

    Voting is never the solution to take down the PAP. They set up all the rules and conditions to make sure that they will always win.( I don't think you understand this statement, people who don't understand this and still doing the same action ( voting) will still get the same result. but expecting a different result? This is called stupidity or insanity. )

    Oh and by the way, you said it yourself that voting is not to win them, then why still vote? voting is to "HURT" the face of PAP. Is that what your idea of voting is all about? That sounds like a fake opp to me.



    ps: unless the opp supporters can unified and unite as one to go against the PAP, i highly doubt so due to the quality of people like you.

    A person who make a firm stand on boycotting will not care if the rigged election will turned into a rigged walkover. It doesn't matter.

    You still haven't answered the question: how does boycotting help 'throw them out', or help the opposition win? You merely make it easier for the PAP to win every election, to legitimize their mandate with huge winning majorities.

    The reason that the PAP wins every time is people like you: those who boycott, or those who vote PAP. I belong to the 30%, so I don't qualify, sadly.

    Voting is never the solution to take down the PAP. They set up all the rules and conditions to make sure that they will always win.


    TCB's near-miss in PE2011 tells you that it is not impossible to win against the PAP-endorsed candidate. You should be spending more time convincing those around you to vote strategically instead of harping ad nauseam about boycotting.

    A person who make a firm stand on boycotting will not care if the rigged election will turned into a rigged walkover. It doesn't matter.

    Sure, it doesn't matter because you're simply not interested in beating the PAP. It's like walking away from a fire when everyone else is trying to put it out. You've shown your true colours as a fraudulent opposition supporter, that's all I can say.

    This is a big fat joke. Reserved for Malays, but this whole presidential election showed 2 things:

    - There are no capable ones out there managing $500 million companies
    and/or
    - They have no interest to serve the country

    Both of these makes the race look bad. lol
    PM Lee Kuan Yew: “Whoever governs Singapore must have that iron in him. Or give it up. This is not a game of cards. This is your life and mine. I’ve spent a whole lifetime building this and as long as I’m in charge, nobody is going to knock it down.”

    Yes, many Malays are rankled too.

    The irony is that this whole wayang kulit isn't even about Malays, or multiculturalism. It's all about Tan Cheng Bock, keeping the proverbial wolf from the door. Period.

    I've said this repeatedly: just revert to the appointed Presidency system, and we'll cease being the laughing stock of the world.

    Don't waste your time. He is just too embarrassed to admit that starting the thread on flawed logic is a mistake. He must thought of sharing his wisdom.

    He can't even explain himself, can't do the sums and worse still does not even realise that he is helping the PAP to hold onto power.

    His position will be never to admit to an error and no one can touch him.

    Kepala Batu comes to mind.

    I have already mentioned that boycotting their rigged election, their rigged policies and that including those rigged laws as well ( i highlighted the word that you wrote "legitimize").
    This will have repercussion, a serious one towards the PAP. You played around their Legitimized Rigged election, you are bound to lose.

    What are the repercussion of a serious boycott towards them and the implications, you have to think and analysed it for yourself. I do not hand over my infinite wisdom on a silver platter and give it to you while you are sitting on a throne. A real dissent will actively find out ways to turn the society around against the establishment, including the option of boycotting. A fake one will want to be spoonfed, which is a disgusting trait to me.

    Google is your friend and you can find out many issues about MAJOR PAST boycotting and the repercussions towards establishments as the result of the boycott.

    As you have said it, NEAR-MISS is not winning. It is called losing, if you still have not noticed that yet.

    I have, time and time again, mentioned that i do not suffer from any forms of inferiority complex and do not need to tell others or "should" others to do what i do, in order to feel good and secure for myself. I never force anyone to boycott anything, i just stated my opinion and let other decide if he wanna go for it all not , with ALL RESPECT.

    I guess this is the common attitude of opposition supporters. They have a serious bout of political inferiority complex and also need people to spoonfeed them with information, knowledge and wisdom. No wonder PAP always win. Unity of a group or a group who can achieve unity usually consist of high quality people. I doubt that is you.

    If you like to use Fire as a metaphor, then people who take part in the rigged election, regardless for or against the PAP, is actually fanning the PAP fire even greater.
