Dr Chee Soon Juan’s message to President Obama

Everything Dr Chee says about the government is true. He did not exaggerate anything at all, in fact, the current government is far more corrupted and unjust than Dr Chee describes it in this video. Singaporeans, I urge you all to listen to this man and give him a chance. The government says that freedom is not possible in Singapore as it will cause chaos. But they are lying! As Benjamin Franklin once said: "Those who trade freedom for security do not deserve nor will they ever receive either".

It is not only Dr Chee who is against the government. There are other opposition leaders such as Mr Chiam See Tong and the late J.B.Jeyaratnam. Sure, they might have had their disagreements before, but presently they are united against the People’s Action Party. They all believe in the same thing, that a one-party ruling system is not possible. I tell you this, do not favour one opposition party and detest the other. They all have a common goal. If you agree with one, agree with the other as well.

There are only two sides in the politics of Singapore, the opposition and the PAP. Dr. Chee does not seek fame and fortune as many of you think. Why would someone pit himself against the government for fame or fortune? Only a fool would do that and get himself sued to bankruptcy over and over again. I tell you this, Dr Chee is no fool. He is wise and knowledgeable. When he protests, he is just like other peaceful protesters who feel it is their duty to stand up for their countrymen’s rights.

Before 1963, the blacks in America were discriminated because the whites believed that there would be chaos and disorder should they be treated fairly and equally. But in 1963, Martin Luther King Jr changed that by using Civil Disobedience. This is what all civil rights leaders practice for they feel it is their duty to do so. We all should support Dr. Chee as well as the rest of the opposition in this fight against the government.

The reason why I do not support a one-party ruling in Singapore is because if there is no one to check on the government, there will be corruption. Furthermore, the government has banned freedom, sues whoever criticizes them and always wins, because the Judiciary system is not fair to all. I tell you this, the Judiciary system in Singapore is in favour of the government, and can be as unfair as they want to be in court. I have heard Judges contradict themselves just to let the government win.

I dont think that the SDP should replace the PAP, of course. Like I said, I don’t believe in a one-party ruling in Singapore as the old saying goes: " Absolute power corrupts". There can be a mix of parties, as long as they are ready to lead together. Dr. Chee is addressing the entire the government as there is not just one particular issue that is wrong. There are many issues that can be improved. And the opposition has addressed them many times, but the government refuses to listen.

For those of you who are Christians, let me quote some verses from the bible about governments and politics. Taken from this website. "Proverbs 8:15, 16 of the Bible, the inspired Word of God, says that governments should use wisdom to rule and to make laws that are just. Proverbs 17:7 says rulers also should not lie. Proverbs 28:2-4 and 29:4 urges rulers to maintain order justly, to follow God’s moral code and to avoid oppressing the poor. Leviticus 19:15 says, “Do not pervert justice; do not show favoritism to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly.” There are many more, but that would make this post too long. Please visit the original website here. The current PAP government has went against most, if not all of them. For non-christians, I’m sure your religions have some opinions on how the government should rule the country, and I’m sure that the government has failed to follow them.
