Ok.. the secret is out, on CNA!

 

I am volunteering my free time to help out with Mr Tan Kin Lian for the upcoming Presidential Elections. I be helping out in the social media content part which includes the “live” streaming to the Internet savvy Singaporeans.

So why am I helping out?

Mr Tan Kin Lian came to my attention when he stood up for Singaporeans affected by their investment in divertive packages which drove the last financial crisis.

Though I was not affected, but to see many Singaporeans losing their hard earned savings with nobody helping them made me quite sad as a Singaporean.

My personal political belief is that the people vote in the Government they want because they believe in what their Government can do for them, not for the big corporations.

The major bank that was involved compensated their Hong Kong investors but not those in Singapore, because the bank would  havebe taken to the courts by the Hong Kong government, if nothing was done.

However, these Singaporeans affected had no or limited recourse.

Then came Mr Tan Kin Lian.

First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

~ Pastor Martin Niem√∂ller (1892–1984) about the inactivity of German intellectuals following the Nazi rise to power and the purging of their chosen targets, group after group.

Standing up for fellow Singaporeans at their time of need takes lot of courage and I admire Mr Tan Kin Lian for that.

I am very well aware that the President of Singapore do not have any executive power but the President of Singapore do have the power to influence.

The custodial role given to the President of Singapore was with the intend to safeguard the reserves from a corrupt government who decided for their own good to dig into Singapore reserves.

If we only allow the President of Singapore to be the “voice of the people” only when the reserves are threatened, it will be too late, as reflected by Pastor Martin Niemoller’s statement.

It takes lots of courage, especially in Singapore, to be the “voice of the people”. Mr Tan Kin Lian has repeatedly demonstrated that he would stand up for the innocent.

Presidential elections aside, Mr Tan will be broadcasting his first “live” stream this Sunday,  and he will be taking about financial planning. An important topic in today’s economic uncertainty where the value of money is constantly depreciating.
